A baked beans cake is leaving Facebook users queasy this week and for good reason.

The cake, which features bacon flowers with UK Weetabix and Heinz Beanz, is definitely a non-traditional choice.

"This makes my throat feel all gaggy," one Facebook user wrote.

"Separately? Yum," another wrote. "Even the bacon/beans combo. Great! Topped on a cheesecake? I love cheesecake and I鈥檓 all for trying new mashups but this trio as a combo?"

"What a waste of cheesecake!" someone else added.

"Your daily reminder that England is just the Alabama of Europe," someone joked.

"I don't see the problem, you get both sweet and savoury!" another said.

"This makes me uncomfortable in so many ways," someone added.

"I can smell this photo and it's making me nauseous," one joked.

Others called it "disturbing" and said it made them "queasy", however, some realised it was in reference to the viral tweets between Weetabix and Heinz.

It all started when Weetabix shared a photo of two Weetabix covered in Heinz baked beans with the caption, "Why should bread have all the fun, when there's Weetabix? Serving up @HeinzUK Beanz on bix for breakfast with a twist. #ItHasToBeHeinz #HaveYouHadYourWeetabix."

Numerous brands began responding to the Tweet, horrified by the combination.

"Us: Pineapple on pizza is the most controversial food ever," Dominos Pizza UK wrote. "Weetabix: Hold my spoon."

Weetabix responded, "We're almost scared to ask what the verdict on pineapple on Weetabix may be..."

Other brands quickly began chiming in. Photo: Twitter

The NHS replied, "That tweet should come with a health warning."

"You okay hun? DM's are open if you need to talk," Nandos wrote with KFC replying, "Let鈥檚 set aside our differences to prosecute this under the Geneva Convention."

KFC also wrote, "Alexa how do I delete someone else鈥檚 tweet," with Krispy Kreme UK quipping, "Seeing as all rules are out the window... fancy a gravy-filled doughnut?"

"Trust us, this is not a Match," Tinder joked, but Weetabix responded, "We'd swipe right..."

Heinz then Tweeted, "Dear @Weetabix, it's bean a bit of a whirlwind romance with a few brands (馃檮) questioning what we have. Shall we make it official? #WeetaBeanzWedding."

Pleesecake then stepped up and made the offending wedding cake, they shared the photo writing, "@HeinzUK @weetabix to the happy couple, we wish you a lifetime of happiness, don鈥檛 listen to the haters, we think you are made for each other. #WeetaBeanzWedding #onewindywedding."
