The wholegrain wheat breakfast cereal that is Weetabix has been a staple member of many people’s morning routine for some time now, and although the brand has grown and adapted with many different forms of the cereal being created, the latest idea has baffled and disgusted many people who clearly believe it is completely wrong.
We’ve had many different branches from the original Weetabix product such as Weetabix Minis, Oatibix and Weetabix Protein, with these as well as flavour additions such as chocolate and fruit and nut have proved a big hit with the customers, unlike the recent innovative idea from the brand – Weetabix with ham and eggs!
Yes, the new idea entitled ‘Benedict’s Eggs’ is apparently the British answer to the popular US dish Eggs Benedict, but instead of the muffin accompanying the ham, eggs and hollandaise sauce, Weetabix have taken it upon themselves to use their traditional breakfast product as the healthy base for the dish.
Understandably the news did not go down well on social media, with posts on Twitter regarding the news including, “An egg on a Weetabix? Unfathomable wrongness. I may have to go and lie down” and “That’s… That’s just wrong in so many ways”, and it was only a matter of time before the company responded to the negative feedback.
Thankfully, Weetabix recognised this severe error of judgement and claimed that it seemed like a good idea at the time when the team were brainstorming ideas, and even responded to a Twitter user asking if they could put this behind them and continue to make breakfast work with the traditional milk.
So eventually everything was fine after the initial shock and disgust of the public, and the breakfast giant was able to laugh at itself for the error, so now we can all move on from this using milk rather than ham and eggs!
