A ‘burnt toast’ scale has been devised and it’s sparked a fierce dispute online


The question “how burnt should you have your toast” is a very thorny one.

Toast is one of life’s most diverse comfort foods.

You can jazz it up with Marmite or cheese if you’re feeling savoury. Nutella and jam are good when you’re after something sweeter.

As for the bread itself, how burnt do you have yours?

Apparently, people feel more strongly than we first realised about this. So much so, a fierce debate has blown up online about how burnt your toast should be.
