I love B&M baked beans - luckily they are sold here in South Carolina!

I remember the smell of B&M along with the old JJ Nissen plant together - good memories!

Good to hear they will rebuild the sign!

The best part about the new sign... it lights up.

The old sign lit up in the early years but lighting had failed in recent years. Sign is lit with LED lights instead of florescent to save 75% in electricity costs! Notice the building exterior has been upgraded! The B&M Beans are the only beans baked in open kettles in America, the competition steam heat (retort) the beans in cans. So its not an accident that they taste better!

B&M Beans.....if you dont have time to bake your own.....the next best thing. A Maine tradition...but buy a can of their brown bread--now that's good eaten.
