Biscuit Showdown: Who Has The Best Biscuits?!

The debate on which fast food restaurant has the best biscuit is almost as old as the “who has the best fries” debate. So we have decided to end the debate once and for all.

The front runners for the title are Popeyes, KFC, Church’s chicken and Red Lobster. All have been lauded as having the best biscuit at one time or another, but what’s beneath the taste? What can of ramications does have towards your body? And which one is healthier.

On a Yahoo Poll from 2014, nearly 75% of participants preferred Popeye’s biscuits to the others. Yet, in a poll of college students from 18-25, by Nation Poll, 53% preferred Red Lobster to all the others.

So I guess taste really depends on what you like in a biscuit: sweet, salt content, density and fluffyness. So we take a look at the nutritional aspects of each biscuit to see which one is the healthiest. Take a look below:
