Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amy's Light in Sodium Organic Traditional Refried Beans, 15.4-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) (Grocery)
I had always used another brand of canned refried beans and switched to Amy's Organic because they were about the same price as my old brand, and I've come to prefer organic products when I can get them. I will not go back to my old brand. These refried beans taste like the pinto beans they are made with, and they have just enough onions, garlic, and other spices to complement the beans rather than overpower the flavor of the beans. As well, they don't seem as "heavy" as other beans that I've eaten. I will definitely buy these beans again.
I was disappointed, though, that most of the cans were dented and damaged. This doesn't seem to have affected the quality of the product, but it does seem odd that so many damaged cans were sent in one order. It seems to me that the shipper may be at fault here and may be sending the dented cans because it might be easier to cast them off on the internet-order crowd--they aren't as likely to return them as a shopper in a store would be not to buy them without a discount.

The myth about dented cans refuses to die.
It's *bulging* cans that may contain hazards, not dented cans. The contents of a dented can won't hurt you unless the denting is so severe that the can has cracked open. Otherwise, if it's not too dented for your can opener to handle, relax. Open the can and enjoy the contents. When you dispose of dented cans and the contents you are throwing money away.
