Beans mean crimez! Police urge shops not to sell baked beans to children over concerns over new TikTok trend of pouring them over people’s homes

  • Retailers urge not to sell baked beans to children due to internet trend
  • TikTok users started emptying cans of beans over people’s homes for videos
  • West Yorkshire Police have now urged shop workers to stay informed










Retailers yesterday were urged not to sell baked beans to children in case they were poured over people’s homes as part of an online trend.

TikTok users started emptying cans of beans and posting ‘beaning’ photos online.

Videos posted under the hashtag #beanbandits show the orange gloop smeared across driveways, doorsteps and even cars.

West Yorkshire Police have called on store staff to be informed.

PCSO Michelle Owens said beaning involved “youths throwing the contents of a can of beans over property, similar to the trend of throwing eggs at property.”

She added: ‘If you work in a retail store, keep in mind that young people buy large quantities of cans of beans.

“If you have children living at home, be aware if you see them taking cans of beans from the family home.”

Surrey police appealed last month after the village of Wonersh was terrorized by bean bandits.

One photo shows four empty cans thrown away at a doorstep strewn with tiny orange beans.

Another shows a gray car with an orange stain caused by sauce dripping down the driver’s window.
