They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and it is certainly true in the case of Bojangles' BoBerry biscuit.
Bojangles' is a Southern chicken and biscuit fast food chain, not unlike Popeyes, Church's, or Kentucky Fried Chicken, with the exception that:
1) Bojangles' is, um, better.
2) Bojangles' becomes very scarce above the Mason Dixon line -- there are none in Delaware, and one lone Pennsylvania location in Reading.
3) None of those other cuz's have the BoBerry!What is a BoBerry biscuit? A large fluffy biscuit studded with BoBerries (not a real fruit, or real food, for that matter), topped with a slightly salty brush of butter, and drizzled with a sweet glaze. It's sooooo good! I'm salivating just looking at the pictures.
I was lucky enough to snag these babies at the Charlotte Douglas airport on a recent trip. They come two to an order, and, surprisingly, are not that horrendously fattening at only 220 calories and 10 grams of fat each . Certainly not a diet food, but compare one BoBerry to one Cinnabun at 730 calories and 24 grams of fat, and you've got a classic Eat This, Not That.BoBerry biscuits play prominently in my high school days, and perhaps that's why I have such fond memories of what some may consider fast food junk. Evenings of cruising all over town and to friends' houses seemed to always start at Bojangles' for a BoBerry pick up.
The most memorable BoBerry experience was the time I decided not to split an order with a friend, and ate two by myself then proceeded into a roller coaster theme park (oh, Carowinds, so many memories) to return to the parking lot about an hour later to moan and groan. Lesson learned: eat just one!
If sweet's not yo' thang, Bojangles' has awesome, thick-cut, seasoned fries. Who's up for a car trip to Reading?
