For the love of biscuits, Popeyes offers heart shaped biscuits

Can you resist Popeyes biscuits? In honor of National Biscuit Day, those craveable biscuits are heart shaped gifts of buttery goodness.

Do you need an excuse to have a Popeyes biscuit today? Since May 14 is National Biscuit Day, this food holiday is perfect excuse to have not one, but maybe a couple of those buttery bites of goodness. To celebrate this special food holiday, Popeyes is transformed those biscuits into heart-shaped presents to their fans.

According to the popular southern fried chicken chain, last year the brand sold “more than 292 million” biscuits last year. That number equates to about 12 biscuits every second. Who knew so many people were chowing down on biscuits?

There is no denying that these buttery biscuits are extremely tasty. Whether enjoyed on their own, with a drizzle of honey or as part of a fried chicken sandwich, they are a must order. Personally, I’ve order a couple extra biscuits to have on hand for breakfast the next morning. With a little extra butter and jam, it is a delicious way to start the day.

To celebrate that love of biscuits, for one day only, May 14, Popeyes will be serving heart shaped biscuits. These special biscuits will be available for one day only at participating locations in Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York. They will be served with all regular meals, combo and platters. They are available only while supplies last.

Amy Alarcon, Head Chef of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen said, “With our buttermilk biscuits at the heart of our menu, it only made sense to celebrate with heart shaped biscuits on National Biscuit Day.”

The promotion is a fun one and it makes for a great Instagrammable moment. Just looking at these pictures makes me wish for more heart-shaped biscuits on the menu. Just think of the fun for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and other celebrations.

Maybe if fans sell out these heart-shaped biscuits quickly, they can express their love of shaped biscuits for future promotions. With 292 million biscuits sold a year, those biscuit fans have a big voice. Who knows, shaped biscuits might just become a new food trend.
