If you love biscuits, this is a special day.
For National Buttermilk Biscuit Day, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is selling limited-edition heart-shaped biscuits in four cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and New York.
The special “Love That” biscuits will be available in all regular meals, combos and platters while supplies last at participating locations in those markets.
Biscuits are a staple at Popeyes; the fast-food chicken chain has sold more than 292 million of them to date, the company says.
“For more than 40 years, our biscuits have been celebrated as a very beloved menu item,” says the fast-food chicken chain’s head chef Amy Alarcon in a statement. “With our buttermilk biscuits at the heart of our menu, it only made sense to celebrate with heart shaped biscuits on National Buttermilk Biscuit Day.”
If you have a hankering for a biscuit and your local Popeyes doesn’t have them, many local restaurants are celebrating, too. Just check the hashtags #NationalButtermilkBiscuitDay or #ButtermilkBiscuitDay on Twitter.

Seafood chain Red Lobster is celebrating, too, by giving free delivery through Grubhub until Thursday, and six free Cheddar Bay Biscuits with your order. You can also tweet @RedLobster using hashtag #CBBSweepstakes between now and June 4 about why you like the restaurant’s biscuits to win a Cheddar Bay Biscuit Fanny Pack.
If you prefer your biscuits on the sweeter side, competitor Kentucky Fried Chicken recently added a new limited-time menu item, Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits, four of which come free when you order a 10-piece meal.
And if the idea of Popeyes just made you hungry for chicken, the chain recently added Cajun Sparkle Boneless Wings & Tots to its menu. For a limited time, you can get a seven-piece or 10-piece order (with a biscuit and drink), prepared with the seasoning – a blend of garlic, onion, and red and black pepper.
