If you need something to brighten your day, this is it: Buttermilk Biscuit Shrimp is returning to Popeyes in a combo meal for just six bucks. This legendary menu item is a delicious spin on the original fried shrimp from Popeyes. It’s made by dipping shrimp into buttermilk biscuit batter and frying it to golden perfection.
If you order the combo meal, you’ll receive eight pieces of Popeyes Buttermilk Biscuit Shrimp, one side (Cajun Fries, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Red Beans and Rice, Coleslaw, Cajun Rice, or Green Beans), a biscuit, and dipping sauce. Running at $6 a meal, this promotion is only available for a limited time at participating Popeyes locations.
The menu item originally joined the Popeyes lineup in 2014 and has become one of the most popular menu items to date, alongside the famous chicken sandwich, of course. To add to the excitement, Popeyes has released hilarious videos to promote the combo meal, featuring customers singing about their love of the Buttermilk Biscuit Shrimp. Here’s a look at one of our favorites.
Popeyes also just announced the return of another wildly popular throwback item, the Red Velvet Cake Cups. This Valentine’s-Day-inspired dessert features a base of red velvet cake with vanilla frosting and red sugar sprinkles. Perhaps, you can cleanse your palette with a Red Velvet Cake Cup after enjoying a Buttermilk Biscuit Shrimp Combo meal.
