It's time to "spill the beans" on our latest poll question!

When I was growing up, two of the most exciting dinner options were either breakfast for dinner (highly underrated) or our weekly ritual of Saturday night bean & hot dogs. When I tell people this, they are either grossed out or can totally relate. After a long week, it was a quick and easy meal for my mom to make. Add a little toast in there too, and it is a delicious treat. I guess I had a pretty boring childhood because it was something I always looked forward to.

Thursday was National Bean Day, so we wanted to find out what your take was on this tasty beloved treat of Maine. Not everyone is a fan, but I must admit, the results did surprise me since so many have told me that they do not like baked beans. So, with that in mind, here we go!
