Here’s the kind of news that will make Carolinians sit up and pay attention:
Biscuitville, the N.C.-based drive-through biscuit chain, is joining up with Palmetto Cheese, the pimento cheese maker that started on Pawleys Island in South Carolina, to add a chicken and pimento cheese biscuit. Palmetto Cheese is known for its coarse-textured pimento cheese that has a cult following in pimento cheese circles.
Specifically: The Spicy Chicken and Jalapeno Pimento Cheese Biscuit. It will be a spicy chicken biscuit layered with Palmetto’s jalapeno pimento cheese.
While Biscuitville has a number of locations in the central part of North Carolina, the closest to Charlotte is in on U.S. 74 in Indian Trail, so you may have to save it as a road trip treat. It has announced plans to add more locations in the area, although dates aren’t known.
