ALDI fans raved about the store-bought cheese biscuits, but shoppers were left with the same complaint.
Shoppers have claimed the cheesy treats, which have been likened to Red Lobster’s famous side dish, are undersized.
A pack of eight frozen Mama Cozzi cheddar, chive, and garlic cookies can be purchased in stores across the United States.
The cookies take just eight minutes to bake and are topped off with a buttery garlic spread.
Fans have said they taste just like a serving of Red Lobster’s Warm Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
But one buyer was disappointed with their size.
They said: “(My) biggest disappointment is how small they are. It takes two, maybe three biscuits to turn a Red Lobster into one.”
Meanwhile, a Red Lobster staffer has revealed that the cheesy dish is unlimited for diners who eat there.
Diners are encouraged to ask their waiter for extra cookies when they head into the restaurant, according to a series of ordering hacks shared on food and drink site Delish.
But the cheesy side dishes are unlimited only for restaurant-dining customers, according to WXXQ.
There is a limit of two cookies per order for those ordering takeaway or delivery.
A restaurant spokesman told WXXQ, “Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits are actually unlimited for our dine-in guests.
“Of course, due to the nature of takeaway and delivery orders, there is a limit to how many we pack in the bag, which is two per appetizer with the option to add more to your order for a small fee.”
And a Redditor claiming to work at Red Lobster has appeared to reveal the cookies’ recipe.
According to the worker, fans only need Bisquick, water, shredded cheddar cheese, butter and spices if they want to make their own batch.
Red Lobster is known for its cookies, but apparently the seafood restaurant served silent puppies at every meal up until the 1990s.
A restaurant spokesman told PopSugar that Cheddar Bay biscuits “were launched in 1992 under the name ‘freshly baked hot cheese garlic bread,’ and the current name was coined in 1997.”
And a staffer revealed that the endless shrimp dish is among the requests the servers hate the most.
They vented on Reddit: “The problem with Endless Shrimp is that the ticket times get so long that it’s almost damn impossible to turn the tables with high enough volume to make good money.
“It’s a promotion most employees loathe.”
In October, Red Lobster launched unlimited shrimp for a limited time.
