The Funny Reason 'Beans' Is Trending On Twitter

Beans are an incredibly versatile and healthy food option that can be easily added to your diet. According to Healthline, beans don't get as much love as they should. Did you know that they can be a good source of protein, especially for vegetarians? What's more, they're known to be really good for health and have numerous benefits, such as keeping your cholesterol levels in check and lowering blood sugar levels.

Another major advantage? There are loads of yummy varieties to choose from, such as chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, soybeans, pinto beans, navy beans, and more. One Redditor expressed their appreciation for beans in a short love letter: "They're such delicious little packages of protein and carbs. I got a bunch from the grocery store, and I kinda want to do a bean tasting? Like, try each kind and see if I can tell the difference, flavor-wise." So much dedication! 

Well, Twitter users are currently speaking at length about this superfood. They have an unusual reason for it, though. Here's the full low-down.

It's related to the traditional English breakfast

Well, seems like some folks didn't know that a traditional English breakfast is made up of ingredients such as bacon, sausages, eggs, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, toast, marmalade, fried onions, and more. According to The Spruce Eats, the dish is sometimes referred to as a "fry-up" because so many components in an English breakfast are, well, fried. There can also be some additions based on where you are in the U.K., and you can expect to find some tasty picks like baked beans, black pudding, fried bread, and more.

The addition of baked beans is a revelation for some people on Twitter for sure. One Twitter user asked others, "Who's tryna eat baked beans and tomatoes at 8 a.m?" Meanwhile, another person wrote, "You put beans in my breakfast and the queen not gonna be the only one in the hospital." Oops. These tweets were responses to a photo that was put up on Twitter, giving people a glimpse into English and American breakfast options. Someone replied, "Everything other than the baked beans looks delicious." Uh-oh.
