British foods are one of those topics you know are always going to stir up emotions. Come for a Brit’s Sunday roast and there will be hell to pay, and don’t even think about commenting on the Full English breakfast.

So, you can imagine how riled the internet got when someone started a Twitter thread asking people to share their most controversial British food opinions.

If you are easily offended, we suggest looking away now…

What British food opinion would get you into this situation?,” wrote user, Hamza Jahanzeb, alongside a snap of Flynn Rider from Disney film Tangled, with a bunch of knives pointing at him. 

Without further ado, here’s what the people had to say:

Hating on Baked Beans

One of the most popular responses was coming for the humble baked bean.

“Baked Beans are disgusting and contaminate any food they come into contact with,” wrote one user. Excuse me? The fry up? The jacket potato? Does this person mean to tell us they wouldn’t mess with beans on toast?! 

Not only did this tweet receive tons of responses agreeing with them, it also bagged a disconcerting 218 ‘likes’. Our blood pressure is rising already.

Sunday Roast Slander

“Sunday roast is the blandest, most boring crap ever,” chimed in another Twitter user, offering their two cents.

“Who hurt you?,” responded one wounded Brit in response.

Whilst another was similarly upset at the claim, writing: “Blocked and reported!”

But as upset some people were, there were more than a few Twitter users who echoed the anti roast sentiments.

Check out a few of them below:

All we can conclude is that a lotta these people can’t cook…

Coming for Colin the Caterpillar

There a few British figures we, personally, care about more than Marks and Spencer’s Colin the Caterpillar, so this one cut deep.

“Colin the Caterpillar is dry and claggy,” wrote one person on Twitter. Gasp.

Okay, we’ll concede, it definitely isn’t the best cake we’ve ever eaten, but his face. Colin the Caterpillar is a national treasure and we won’t hear any different.

Criticising the fry-up

The Full English might be one of the culinary offerings that Brits hold dearest, but not all of us, apparently. 

“A full English is not worth the effort or washing up. A sausage sandwich is a better option,” wrote one person.

Others agreed, too.

“English breakfasts are mid, beans on toast alone is far superior,” wrote somebody else.

As another said: “Full English Breakfasts are disgusting and I cannot comprehend why anyone would want to eat such a massive meal to start their day.”

Let us be greedy in peace, goddamn it.

Even tea comes under the spotlight

You’d think the one thing that would be sacred would be a cuppa tea, right? Who doesn’t love a warm, comforting brew?

Well, believe it or not, this guy.

“Tea is overrated,” a Twitter user wrote – and they had an army of supporters behind them, too.

We don’t know about you, but this whole Twitter thread was a distressing read.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to eat some beans on toast…
