And we’re so here for it. Earlier today, Weetabix shared this monstrosity of a tweet:
Why should bread have all the fun, when there’s Weetabix? Serving up @HeinzUK Beanz on bix for breakfast with a twist. #ItHasToBeHeinz #HaveYouHadYourWeetabix pic.twitter.com/R0xq4Plbd0— Weetabix (@weetabix) February 9, 2021
It suggested that baked beans may be a suitable thing to put on top of breakfast cereal. We want to take this opportunity to clarify that we are reporting this statement – not condoning it or suggesting it should be something you try at home – no matter how much Lockdown is getting to you!
If you weren’t so disgusted that you slammed your computer shut and went out for a brisk walk to clear your head, you would have seen some of the hilarious replies from other UK brands. We have compiled them below for your convenience.
Nandos just wanted to check in…
You okay hun? DM’s are open if you need to talk 💖— Nando’s (@NandosUK) February 9, 2021
The RSPCA had welfare concerns…
What the Shih Tzu is this 🙀 Obviously we adore our Heinz 57s – and we love chow-chowing down on Weetabix – but this looks like pretty woof to us 🤢 You must be barking mad!— RSPCA (England & Wales) (@RSPCA_official) February 9, 2021
As did the NHS. Our health workers deserve better than this, Weetabix, what were you thinking?!
That tweet should come with a health warning— NHS (@NHSuk) February 9, 2021
Police have responded to the incident, but were apparently unable to find evidence of any crime. Come on, there is photographic evidence right there in the tweet!
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…
Iceland tried to have the tweet removed, which must be why mums go there…

But full marks have to be given to Sainsbury’s who reference the viral Handforth Parish Council meeting that has also taken the internet by storm:
Beans have no authority here, no authority AT ALL— Sainsbury’s (@sainsburys) February 9, 2021
Not to be defeated, Heinz plays along in our favourite interaction of the thread!
*Removes Sainsbury’s from chat*— Heinz (@HeinzUK) February 9, 2021
And it continued…
Sainsbury’s, we’ve been through this. You know what you’re talking about. Beanz Meanz Weetabix.— Heinz (@HeinzUK) February 9, 2021
Genuinely not sure if this is the Flat Earth society making fun of themselves, or whether… I mean… has this pushed them over the edge…?
This sounds like a great idea. Thanks for sharing!— Flat Earth Society (@FlatEarthOrg) February 9, 2021
Sky tried to help, but it was too late…
*unplugs Sky broadband to save the rest of the nation from seeing this*— Sky TV (@skytv) February 9, 2021
And even the government got involved:

No intelligence 🕵️♀️
As yet there have been no reports of injuries as a result of this reckless breakfast combination, but we will keep you updated. Stay safe Nibblers, and don’t do this.
