Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

We’re big advocates of Baileys here at Twisted (or any creme liqueur for that matter) but even we admit that tipping it on your cereal in the morning could be a step too far…

As bonkers as it sounds, the trend has reared its head online in the run-up to the holiday season, and some people are actually into the idea.

Granted, like with many TikTok trends, those trying the combination are mostly doing so ironically.

But predictably, it has caused a stir online, nonetheless…

Shared on the video app by account @chefabbys, a clip showed someone pouring milk and Baileys over Cornflakes, and giving them a good stir.

“Will you try this?,” they asked…and then chaos ensued.

“Why do you want us to end our day when it’s … the morning?,” someone wrote.

Whilst another said: “I’m already drunk [from] watching this.”

“This is a crime,” a third said.

As a fourth concurred, rather bluntly: “No.”

For all the criticism, there were also a lot of people who could get behind the idea of a boozy brekky. Anything goes at Christmas, ey?

“I knew I wasn’t the only one,” said one TikTok user who was already an avid Baileys cereal fan.

As another wrote: “It’s evening somewhere…”

As much as we can appreciate enjoying everything in excess over the holidays, we have to admit that we’d be napping on the sofa at 11am if this was how we started our day.

In other Baileys news, did you know you can now get baubles filled with the stuff?

Each bauble has Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur inside it, so you can pluck one of the 5cl bottles off a branch and neck it back whenever you wish.

Available from online alcohol retailer, The Bottle Club, the mini Baileys bottles make incredible Christmas presents, stocking fillers or Secret Santa gifts, too.

You can read more about those here.
