Red Lobster Selling Cheddar Bay Biscuit Gift Boxes For The Holidays

One of the best things about Red Lobster is their warm, cheesy Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Of course, with the current pandemic going on, getting into a restaurant to get free batches of these isn’t an option for everyone.

You do get two biscuits per entree when ordering takeout or delivery, and you can also order extra, but they do come at a price. Red Lobster is trying to give those biscuits some extra holiday cheer by turning them into a gift box.

Normally, according to Food & Wine, getting a set of Cheddar Bay Biscuits delivered or to-go costs $2.79 for six or $5.29 for a dozen. The chain’s new Biscuit Gift Box deal increases the cost for six by a dollar, but adds a special gift box packaging to the order.

They’re meant to be something to gift to others, or just to yourself if you’re craving extra helpings of the biscuits.

Red Lobster will have these for sale on their website starting on November 16th, but they are a limited-edition batch. Once the boxes are sold out, the biscuits will still be available at their normal price.

If you are able to dine in, the biscuits are still free and unlimited.

Red Lobster Debuts Lobster And Waffles Made From Their Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Red Lobster is whipping up a seafood-inspired take on chicken and waffles. Instead of chicken, they’ve opted for deep-fried lobster to pair with their waffles, made with the chain’s cult-favorite Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix.

The new Lobster and Waffles dish features buttermilk fried Maine lobster tail perched atop a Cheddar Bay Biscuit waffle and drizzled with maple syrup. It’s a bit of an upscale take on chicken and waffles because of the lobster, but the combo of sweet, savory, salty, and cheesy sounds promising.

The fact that Red Lobster is doing buttermilk-fried lobster tails is dope, but really, we’re all here for the “Chedda Bae” waffles. Anyone who’s visited the chain is in the know on how craveable the biscuits are. And utilizing the mix to transform them, whether it be into bundt cakes or waffles, is always gonna turn heads and get Red Lobster fanatics excited.

Red Lobster’s unique seafood spin on the classic chicken and waffles will hit restaurants starting March 26th. The menu price will vary by market, but averages out to roughly $19.99. It’ll be on the menu nationwide for a limited time and while supplies last during this round of Lobsterfest.

We Need To Try This Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Bundt Cake ASAP

Anyone who goes to Red Lobster knows that the Cheddar Bay Biscuits are bae. For the true obsessives, there’s even a baking mix to whip them up at home for yourself. One person took the biscuits a step further, though, and made their own Cheddar Bay Biscuit Bundt Cake that’ll make you stop and say “Oh SHIT, why didn’t I think of that?!”

Redditor superflossman posted a picture of their savory biscuit cake to the shittyfoodporn subreddit, and folks there have been loving it so far in the comments.

The bundt cake apparently took 2 bags of the Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix to make, which translates to about 20 biscuits or over 4400 calories. Superflossman mentioned in the comments that it “tasted like heaven,” and people ate it so fast that they weren’t able to get any pictures of slices. It’s probably a little crumbly on the inside since it’s a biscuit, but that wouldn’t stop it from tasting like euphoria.

After seeing this, we definitely want to make a Cheddar Bay Biscuit bundt cake for ourselves. Our only difference would maybe be to put something saucy in the middle to go with the slices of cake. A lobster bisque or chowder queso, perhaps?
