  1. I feel like Popeye’s is just taking whatever bread-like foods they have in the back, crumbling them up into breadcrumbs and then releasing it as their “new item”

    1. Popeyes to Red Lobster: I see your shrimp with a side of Cheddar Bay Biscuits and raise you…

  2. Ketchup isn’t spicier than the Ghost Pepper Jelly. It tastes good, but it’s not spicy AT ALL.

  3. Popeyes Jersey City actually gave me 3 tiny shrimp and 2 chicken tenders a regular biscuit and my sude was the only correct item. I don’t know what they are doing besides false advertising.

    1. There are two different combos: one is a combo with just the shrimp, the other has chicken and shrimp. It’s not false advertising, just a mix-up at your store.

  4. Atlanta, GA – Camp Creek
    No cheddar biscuit; only cheddar regular shrimp (not butterflied). False advertising?

  5. Tried it today. The shrimp had a thick batter, but it was fried to perfection…crunchy outside, tender shrimp inside. While I didn’t taste cheddar, the batter did have a pleasant herb flavor which complemented the shrimp – the ghost pepper jelly rounded it out. Speaking of which, the ghost pepper jelly, despite it’s name, was not spicy at all, but very tasty, especially when used on Popeye’s killer biscuit. I’d definitely order this again.

  6. As usual Popeyes always leaves your box missing something tried the cheddar biscuit with butterfly shrimp today. Must have to pay extra for the ghost peeper dipping jelly. I would have liked to try it next time I’ll offer to pay extra to get the advertised condiment.

    1. It’s cheddar biscuit butterfly shrimp, that means that the shrimp is battered in the cheddar biscuit not that you’re getting a cheddar biscuit with the combo.
