Travels in the South

12 Oct

Welcome my friends to another issue of Travels in the South.  Today, I want to talk about biscuits, which I’m told look a lot like scones.  Maybe the difference is a little sweetness.  The majority of our American biscuits do not have sugar while scones have a bit.  But here in America in the south, we have found a biscuit that gives you a little of both – we at the Hotel Thompson call them biscones – snorts with piggy laughter.  Of course, that is not their real name.

Let me introduce you to a Boberry Biscuit from a local restaurant here called Bojangles.  Bojangles is known for their chicken (go figure with mom and her chicken passion, right?)  But they also have these sweet babies.  It’s a regular biscuit made with blueberries and then highlighted with cream cheese.  Can you say sinfully good?  You can buy them in packs of 1, 2 or 6.  Nana buys them 6 at a time and freezes them.  She shows great restraint while this piggy can’t say the same.  Yes they are that delicious.

Have you tried one of these bad boys yet?  If so, what did you think about them?  Do tell my friends.

    I have avoided Bojangles. The last thing I need is another food addiction.

    Nothing quite like a great biscuit (or scone) in my books❣️ Not familiar with Bojangles but a nearby breakfast place has the best buttermilk biscuits I’ve ever had. I have to limit my visits otherwise I’d have the same shape! 😉

    Hmmm, looks really delicious. If I had my pockets full of money, I would fly there just for tasting those biscuits and buying a big box with me.

    it is funny you mention biscuits – I don’t normally like the amercian ones finding them dry and heavy but while we were in Alabama we went to a pokey little diner for breakfast (it was the only place in town) the breakfast itself was greasy and yucky – but of my goodness – the biscuits were to die for – light fluffy and full of butter – there were the best I have had here in the USA

      Oh yes. Some of the *best* dives have awesome biscuits. We have tried them from all over the place. Some good – some would pass as rocks on the highway – LOL. These bo-berry biscuits are sweet, tender and so delicious. I do believe we got my mom hooked on them. Shame on us, right? June
      P.S. Glad you were safe during the storm. We thought of ya’ll so very much.
