Baked beans on Weetabix, anyone? Twitter can't stomach this unusual combo
UK cereal brand Weetabix has social media buzzing after suggesting a rather unusual food combo: its cereal biscuits topped with Heinz baked beans.
Taking to Twitter this week, Weetabix teased a variety of different options that would go better with its biscuits at breakfast.
However, it was the combination of baked beans that had social media doing a double take.
“Why should bread have all the fun, when there's Weetabix?” said the brand.
The combo is meant to serve “breakfast with a twist”.
The viral tweet garnered more than 20,000 comments and was shared around the platform more than 99,000 times.
Twitter users - including Tinder, KFC and Nando's - gave the combo a “hell no”.
The US Embassy in London said that the pairing was “not the US-UK collaboration we were hoping for”.
Here is a snapshot of some of the hilarious reactions:

Watch out, there's going to be heaps of Weetabix and Beanz coming through your checkouts soon…— Weetabix (@weetabix) February 9, 2021
We have had a few comments from members of the public asking how we are going to respond to this incident.— Northants Police (@NorthantsPolice) February 9, 2021
It is clearly a crime without a doubt but we won't be visiting their headquarters in Burton Latimer just yet as the Crimes Against Breakfast Act doesn't exist...
