"This is a favorite at potlucks and barbeques! I've often wondered if I get invited for my company or my Cola Beans! I've tried several different brands of colas, but have found that the brand in the red can works best. I like to pre-cook the bacon about half-way so it doesn't make the beans too greasy, but it's not necessary. This recipe can also be cooked in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour." — OHHCANDY

I cut the recipe in half & I used beans w/ onions added & highly recommend it. These have sooo much flavor!
I don't eat baked beans myself so I had to let hubby be the sole judge on this one. He found it to be incredibly bland and asked me not to waste the ingredients on this one again. He much prefers Baked Beans III from this site.
I love this recipe. I made it recently for a tailgate party and everyone loved them. Very easy to put together and smells great while cooking.
The beans turned out really good, however they weren't much different than most canned baked beans. The cola seemed to make no difference. I don't know if I would make these again.
This wasn't my favorite baked beans recipe. Baked beans are already kind of sweet, and the cola and brown sugar just overdid it for us. It also didn't seem very flavorful to me, so I tried adding sauteed onions, but it still wasn't that great. It was fun to try out cooking with cola, though!
I am absolutely hooked on the taste that the cola gives these beans! I've tried them with Original Baked Beans and BBQ Baked Beans and the Original was better. Made them with BBQ Beef Sandwiches and loved dipping them in the sweet sauce! The best!
These were okay. I think giving them a 5 star rating is way overboard, as they really were nothing special. In my opinion, they taste just like some of the pricer baked beans out of the can. For the prepwork that I put into them, I would rather have just bought a few of those canned beans, heated them up and served them.
These baked beans get rave reviews every time I make them. It's so easy to put together. We're making them again for New Years Eve. Happy New Year everyone!
