It's Strawberry Season at Hardee's
Jun 17, 2008
New Strawberry Biscuit is a Great Way to Start the Day
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – June 17, 2008 – Summer just got a little sweeter with the addition of the new Strawberry Biscuits on Hardee's breakfast menu. The marriage of one of summer's most popular fruits with Hardee's signature Made from Scratch™ biscuits helps make the season that much more enjoyable.
"After our Blueberry Biscuits proved to be so popular with our customers last year, we began working on other fruit-filled biscuits to have ready for this summer and the Strawberry Biscuit was the runaway favorite," said Brad Haley, executive vice-president of marketing. "To this day, we have guests begging us to bring back the Blueberry Biscuits, but the new Strawberry Biscuit, with sliced strawberries in strawberry syrup ladled onto a Made from Scratch buttermilk biscuit and drizzled with icing, should satisfy their cravings. And, if they need even more of a strawberry fix, they can order one of our latest Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake™ flavors, the Strawberry Banana Smoothie, for lunch or dinner."
The Strawberry Biscuit is sold individually, or in 2- or 6-pack boxes for $0.99, $1.59 and $3.59, respectively. It can also be purchased in a small combo, featuring hash rounds and a small coffee, juice or drink for $2.59.
