Okay, this is another totally self-indulgent post. And the food in question may or may not be from a fast food chain restaurant. Please don’t judge, just hear me out. My grandparents, who used to live in New Jersey, re-situated themselves in North Carolina a few years ago. Sweet Daddy Bones and I fly down to see them whenever we can, but every so often we decide it would be more fun to take a road trip, and we drive. We tell people it’s because we want to spend quality time together, but if we’re being honest, we see each other plenty. We do it for the biscuits. You see, these buttery love pillows ARE only found at chain, but it’s a southern chain, so in my mind– totally fair blogging game. And if we’re ALL being honest with ourselves, sometimes fast food just gets it right. The mom-and-pop down the street is using their hundred year old recipe, they’re not spending thousands of hours and dollars coming up with the exact formula of fats and chemicals to make a perfect product. It’s SCIENCE, people! So please believe me when I say these are the best gosh darn biscuits I have ever tasted. Just imagine exactly how you would want the perfect biscuit to taste– that’s what they taste like. They literally melt in your mouth. I can’t go into too much detail, because my keyboard will get waterlogged. (And yes, the fried chicken and mac and cheese are yummy, but Popeyes and KFC are just as good.) While we’re all still being truthful, there are exactly four of these hot-spots on our journey. We always stop at at least two… Sometimes three. But to be fair, it was Bo time.
Think you know where I found this booty?
Yes! Noelle was right about this one! I got this buttery, fluffy biscuit at Bojangles’!
Bojangles’ is mostly a southern chain, with one in Reading, PA, and a few scattered throughout Maryland (I just found out about this, and am very excited). You can check out locations here. If you ever happen to find yourself passing one on the road- trust me, and stop for a biscuit, and if you’re feeling adventurous, a Chicken Supreme. They’re basically the absolute best chicken fingers in the world. Your stomach will thank you.
