And they have the cheek to criticise our breakfast combinations? Now this is war.
You’ve heard it a million times over – it’s the most important meal of the day. Whether you agree with that statement or not, the word breakfast is a term that literally means to ‘break your fast’ from a night of not eating whilst you’re asleep, so basically, science says it is and we’re not up for arguing.
For a legion of breakfast lovers across the world, choosing what to fill your empty belly with can be a real tricky decision and this is why typical breakfast foods tend to differ from country to culture.
Take America and the UK for example.
Now, Americans have always had something to say about the quintessentially British fry-up, haven’t they? For some reason, there’s just something about the combination of bacon, sausages, fried eggs, baked beans, mushrooms, tomatoes and black pudding that doesn’t sit right with them.
Although, when you learn of what sorts of things they’re piling on a plate at 8am, maybe it’s us that has more of a reason to be concerned?
When Twitter user @4TheCulture took to social media to poll US followers asking “who’s house are yall stopping by for breakfast?” with four pictures of typical American breakfast plates assigned to family members, it was actually a follow-up mention tweet by @ashindestad that, for better or for worse, really got people talking.
And there we have it, it was only a matter of time, but the 2020 ‘across the pond’ breakfast war has well and truly started.
We’ve really only touched the surface on this debate. Honestly, you could be reading for days and we have a feeling it’s going to be bubbling with back-and-forths for much, much longer, so if you fancy having a gander at the rest of the replies just to rile you up that little bit more, then head on over to Twitter here.
Well, when all that’s said and done then, there’s only thing left to cover – who’s side are you on?
Please don’t make us regret asking that Manchester.
