Why The Hell Is Everyone Getting Angry About Bay Leaves In Their Burritos?

Spice up your life.

For those of you who have clicked this article in a desperate attempt to find out what a bay leaf is, first of all you are abhorrently lazy and secondly, it’s an aromatic leaf added to recipes to enhance the flavour of certain meals. It’s essentially a spice, which is why Chipotle chuck it into a bunch of their tacos and burritos. After all, Mexican food without spices would be entirely shit.


A bunch of clueless food lovers in the US have been tweeting the brand, enraged after finding a simple bay leaf in each of their delicious meals. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so fucking tragic. Take a look – shoutout to the guy who ended up changing his username to “bay leaf white boy” after backlash from Twitter trolls.

Obviously the response from bay leaf lovers and those accustomed to the innards of a spice rack were howling. Many former Chipotle employees took to the internet to assure their peers that all was good.

Not really sure what everyone is getting worked up about to be honest, it could be a lot worse. After all, this Ghanian woman found a human penis in her soup and we’re pretty certain that stuff isn’t chucked in for flavour.
