Some marketing genius at Darden (Red Lobster's parent company) realized they could take the mix that they ship to the restaurants, and package it for home use.

The first thing I had to do was go get some of the genuine article. Did you know you can go to Red Lobster and just buy biscuits by the half-dozen to go? Until I wrote this article, the thought never occurred to me. At $2 for a half-dozen, it's a decent deal for a quick snack on the road. At least, as long as you don't mind your car smelling like garlic butter.
