Throughout Red Lobster's 46-year history, one menu item has stood out as the indisputable favorite. It inspires weird YouTube videos. It spawns hundreds of DIY recipes from amateur chefs. It's so popular, Red Lobster serves 1.1mill of these things every single day. We're speaking, obviously, about the Rock Island Stuffed Tilapia. Okay, fine, the Cheddar Bay Biscuit.
When word broke that Darden Restaurants was selling off Red Lobster in a $2.1bill deal, people immediately feared the worst for their beloved biscuits. It's still unclear where they'll land, but while the higher Cheddar Bay authorities sort out their fate, we decided to look back on the folklore surrounding this pride of the breadbasket. Disappointingly, there were no pirates involved.
