CHARLOTTE -- Bojangles', a Charlotte-based restaurant known for its ‘Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits,’ didn’t top the list for tasty fast-food biscuits, according to a recent poll.
Bojangles’ biscuits are near the bottom on the batch for blind-test tasters, according to The Washington Post's poll. On a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being “bad,” the restaurant was given a 2.25 based on the biscuit's texture, taste and appearance.
Here is what was said about the bread:
“Good crisp on the outside. Good salt levels. Not very light and fluffy. There’s a little crispness and contrast between the outer and interior textures. Very salty, not very flaky. Meh. Not a good biscuit! Kind of a burned taste, but it looks perfectly golden! So many carbs, so little flavor. It’s crying out for jam, jelly, anything to distract from the bland-yet-fluffy body. I can taste leavening in this; it tastes like baking soda.”
In response, the company released a statement saying, "Our incredible fans often tell us how much they crave Bojangles’ delicious buttermilk biscuits. However, we realize made-from-scratch biscuits aren’t for everyone. We genuinely thank the Washington Post for including us, and we invite these taste-testers back to Bojangles’ anytime."
Senator Thom Tillis even tweeted his opinion about the doughy debacle, recommending the food tasters get their tastebuds checked out since Bojangles' has the best fast food biscuits.
McDonald’s topped the list receiving a score of 3.25 out of 5.
