We hauled a pile of B&M baked beans down to the national scout jamboree in 1977 but sadly didn't get any brown bread. Its an acquired taste and texture.

    Their claim to fame is they are true brick oven baked beans compared to "steam beams" which are cooked in the can with no precooking. They precook the beans in kettles and then can them and apply a sterilizing bath while other companies just put the raw beans and ingredients in and cook them in the can. I used to get kick out of their marketing, every can of beans had a piece of salt pork added to it, they also sold "vegetarian" beans without the added salt pork.

    Get a nice day with the right breeze and a walk along the eastern promenade walking trail just across from the factory in Portland and it will smell like a combination of ocean and baked beans, very reminiscent of a lobster bake. Makes me salivate thinking about it
    That's good info, thank you!

    I'm outta B&M Bread and have relocated to the south for the winter and so now I need to find a new source eek!

    Logan bread keeps and travels better but brown bread is mighty tasty.

    Brown bread (sent to myself in maildrops) and cream cheese were staples on my thru-hike in '87. By New England, I couldn't stomach dry foods like packaged cheese and crackers, and the moistness of the brown bread combined with cream cheese was heavenly. I had sort of forgotten about it, because I don't see it in my local grocery stores any more.

    I didnít look to see if these were with or without raisins.
    Great deal on the shipping. Two days to the store. Free. Take that Amazon.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I like them as well. I do know a lot of people regift them at the next Christmas. Who knows, maybe they are like Twinkies and can survive a nuclear blast.

    If you search "B&M Brown Bread" on Amazon, there are multiple sellers and some can ship immediately. Prices vary widely, from a low of $2.50 to $3.00 per can, to much higher.

    Ok.... I'm from the Midwest, and never heard of the stuff before. Curiously this topic came up as I just saw the B&M Brown Bread can at a large local grocery store and I thought...what is that! I didn't look too close at it and assumed it was like a canned fruit cake or similar. Thanks to this topic, nowI gotta go back and get a can to try.

    I grew up eating them. I lived in Wisconsin, but of course, this was a couple years ago . We used to eat them with cream cheese, cuts the sweet a bit. All sugar isn't equal in the body and if it is still black strap molasses, that is high in B vitamins. I imagine it would be good hiking fuel. And for the record, I hate fruitcake and liked those, at least back then.
