NEW YORK, July 2 — The Internet has been turning green literally after The New York Times posted a Tweet suggesting that we should all add green peas to our guacamole for texture, sweetness, and because they help keep the guacamole from browning.
In what may possibly be the greatest debate in the history of guacamole, America’s mass mob of “guac-a-holics” went on a rampage, with even President Barack Obama weighing in on the heated debate.
A recipe for “Green Pea Guacamole” — adapted from New York’s ABC Cocina restaurant and tweeted out by the New York Times — calls for a radical notion: “Add green peas to your guacamole. Trust us,” the newspaper told its 17.7 million followers.
Once word of the recipe spread on Twitter, folks could not help but share their thoughts on the idea. Suddenly, even political rivals Obama and Jeb Bush found some common ground: Peas in guacamole is plain unnatural.
“Respect the nyt, but not buying peas in guac. onions, garlic, hot peppers. classic,” President Obama wrote in a Twitter post.
And to think it all began with an innocent suggestion to give peas a chance.

It's things like this that make me incapable of trust (and therefore incapable of love). https://t.co/KuRkRTzMyY— Isaac Fitzgerald (@IsaacFitzgerald) July 1, 2015
