Both contain zero trans-fats. Have you actually eaten them?

And excess sodium is only an issue if you have an existing hypertension problem.

Yes, and last I checked they contained 1.5g each. New nutrition table specifically omits to measure trans fats, but its 8g Fat/ 3g Saturated Fat per biscuit.

Don't even get me started on how wrong the sodium argument is.

That statement is so misleading. Consuming too much sodium has a negative effect on your body. Especially if you do a lot of weight lifting, you ought to avoid too much sodium intake.

Popeye's has 0 trans fats in their biscuits . . . and as near as I can tell, they haven't since 2006.

Red Lobster only says the following in their FAQ about the subject: "Q: I am trying to avoid trans-fats and hydrogenated oils. Do any of your menu items contain trans-fats? A: Our cooking oils are all trans-fat free." - So I don't know if that answers the question.

Although I've never eaten at a Red Lobster and I don't recall if I've ever eaten a Popeye's biscuit.

My Ride: What else?
Although I've never had RL's biscuits, I didn't think the Popeye's biscuits were that memorable. I do like their Red Beans and rice though
