8. The Cheddar Bay Biscuits replaced some unpopular hushpuppies
Nowadays, people go to Red Lobster just for the biscuits, but prior to 1988, they didn't even exist. Hushpuppies were the initial bread basket staple, until corporate culinary whiz Kurt Hankins started experimenting with a Texas toast-style French bread. His new creations netted fans pretty quickly, and were a full-blown institution by the mid-'90s. May they live on in our hearts, memes, and stomachs for another 26 years.
