The “posh cheesy beans on toast” canapes are mini pieces of brioche bread, topped with haricot beans in a tomato sauce – AKA baked beans – with creamy Barber’s mature cheese melt and finished with Barber’s mature cheddar cheese.
And while they probably are delicious, the snacks come at a whopping cost of £5 a pack for ten bites.
One said: “Don’t get me wrong I love M&S food as it’s usually top tier, but I can’t think of any situation where you’d ask someone ‘would you like a mini posh beans on toast?’”
A second social media user slammed the “unnecessary” expensive canape, saying, “I’ve never seen anything more unnecessary in my life than @marksandspencer selling ‘posh’ beans on toast for FIVE POUNDS.”
Another added: “I would like to know who do M&S think is serving beans on toast as hors d’oeuvres?”
M&S party food. Cheesy beans on toast.
Really? 🙄 https://t.co/kbRy26sg8Y
