There’s nothing like a debate about food to get people riled up and Alison Hammond spoke for many when she shared her outrage over Weetabix being ranked as a biscuit.

Yes, a biscuit! The popular breakfast cereal option was included in a controversial sweet treat ranking shared by Macmillan Cancer Support in the UK this week.

And although it can’t be denied that Weetabix is shaped like a biscuit, when it was placed alongside icons like chocolate digestives and shortbread many people weren’t having it.

The debate made it all the way to This Morning with Alison taking up the torch and sharing her outrage over the ranking.

While chatting with co-host Dermot O’Leary and guest Gyles Brandreth, Alison laughed through her shock as she declared: ‘That’s not normal… it’s dry like cream crackers!’

Dermot also teased that he was feeling a little guilty as he’d been giving his 14-month-old son Weetabix for breakfast and now he’s discovering it’s a biscuit.

We’ve rated the nation’s most loved biscuits, so you don’t have to… 🍪#MacmillanCoffeeMorning

LBC radio host Nick Ferrari, who was also a guest, then shared his thoughts, joking: ‘It’s total Coco-Pops if you ask me. It’s utter nonsense, of course it’s a cereal, and by the way, the only way I can eat them is completely doused in milk – they’re very, very dry.’

Many This Morning viewers agreed with Alison Hammond’s biscuit outrage, saying they were also amused and shocked on Twitter.

One person wrote: ‘You won’t find me dunking any Weetabix in my brew #ThisMorning

And another tweeted: ‘Weetabix is 1000% a cereal.’

You won’t find me dunking any weetabix in my brew 🙄🤪 #ThisMorning

But others did point out that Weetabix ‘have always called their product a biscuit. It’s printed on their boxes!’

All debate aside, it really doesn’t matter what biscuits you’re eating when the purpose behind it is for a good cause.

Macmillan’s ranking was all linked to their annual Coffee Morning event where people are encouraged to get together, eat some snacks and raise money for cancer services.
