Biscuits and Syrup!

Biscuits Name Official Biscuit and Syrup Partners

MONTGOMERY - Buy me some peanuts, Cracker Jack and biscuits and syrup.

Montgomery Biscuits fans will be able to scarf down their team's edible namesake and soak up some syrup while they soak in a ballgame at the club's new, $26 Million downtown ballpark. The news comes thanks to partnerships with Mary B's Biscuits and Alaga Syrup, announced today.

It is believed that the team will be the only professional sports franchise offering biscuits and syrup alongside hot dogs and other traditional ballpark fare.

"We're very proud of our partnerships with Mary B's Biscuits and with Alaga Syrup," said team Co-Owner Sherrie Myers. "Not only because of the relationship, but because we're happy to be able to offer our fans the best biscuits and syrup available anywhere. Besides, how could you go to a Biscuits game and not have a great biscuit? Because it's so closely tied to our team identity, we had to offer first-rate products."

Mary B's Biscuits, manufactured by Hom/Ade Foods, Inc. of Bagdad, Fla., are the no. 1 fresh-baked frozen biscuits on the market. The product debuted in 1998, and from a humble start is available in nearly 9,000 retail locations, including Wal-Mart stores nationwide. The company has a biscuit-making plant in Montgomery.

"We know a winner when we see one," said Hom/Ade Chairman Howard H. Burris. "When we heard about the Biscuits playing ball in our region, we knew we had to become the team's official biscuit. Fans of biscuits across the country have come to love Mary B's Biscuits and now fans of the Montgomery Biscuits will be able to enjoy the same product in the ballpark that they enjoy fresh out of their own oven."

Alaga, a trademark of Whitfield Foods, Inc., has been the premier brand of syrup and hot sauce in the South for decades. Based in Montgomery, Whitfield Foods has been operating for nearly 100 years.

"Whitfield Foods' sponsorship of the Montgomery Biscuits is a natural for many reasons, especially the fact that biscuits and Alaga Syrup have been a longtime Southern staple." said President and CEO Les Massey. "We see our sponsorship as not only support of the Biscuits, but also of the community and revitalization of historic downtown Montgomery, a history that Alaga Syrup has been a part of since 1906."

The Biscuits and syrup will be served at a specially-designed portable concessions cart, branded with both Mary B's and Whitfield Foods logos.

In addition to serving them at concession stands, the Biscuits will also be firing Mary B's Biscuits between innings to fans in the stands from a specially-designed biscuit launcher. Both products will be featured on "Whitfield Foods Syrup Soppin' Sundays," in which contestants will scramble to see who can sop up the most Alaga Syrup with Mary B's Biscuits.

Many other unique food options and southern specialties, such as barbecue pork and boiled peanuts, will be available at the concession stands at Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium.

    Try mixing brown sugar and butter into a thick syrup and spread that on a hot biscuit. WOW!! "Sugar Biscuits" have always been a favorite around our house.

    I had never tried biscuits and syrup until moving to Georgia a little over twenty years ago. Po Folks - now Folks - served biscuits with their meals and had a pitcher of syrup on the table. After seeing others pouring syrup on their biscuit and eating it pancake style, I tried it. In 1983 I would order their Po Plate, which was a choice of four vegetables, and have a biscuit with syrup for dessert. For $2.25, that was a fantastic meal. I believe the same meal is now about triple the 1983 price, and the syrup is no longer offered.

    My boss and his wife introduced me to King Syrup. It is sort of like a syrup and honey mixture. I baked some Pillsbury Homestyle Biscuits the other morning and had them with King syrup. That was good eating.

    Fresh baked biscuits hot from the oven, a little bit of butter and maple syrup. Can't be beat.

    How about a sausage biscuit coverd with the molasses or honey or syrup?-that combo is also quite good--or sausage biscuit with grape jelly!

    My boss brings his breakfast to work every morning which is usually a
    bacon and egg or country ham and egg biscuit from Hardees. He always has several packages of strawberry jam and after each bite off of his buscuit, he spreads the uneaten part with strawberry jam.

    I like apple butter and bacon biscuits.

    I love a good biscuit. Plain, with toppings, fresh and hot, cold and leftover, whatever...

    Some of my favorite toppings for biscuits are honey, apple butter, and chocolate syrup. Not together (although I might need to try that someday), but separately.

    Open a fresh hot biscuit on a plate, throw on a little butter, and drizzle on some chocolate syrup. Good eatin'!

    I've also been known to use biscuits as mini buns for hamburgers. Kind of a twist on the concept of White Castle's sliders.

    Oh yeah! A sausage biscuit with grape (or strawberry) jelly. I second that.

    When I was really young, my father taught me to mix maple syrup/honey with peanut butter, and then he spread it on a biscuit. Gosh, good stuff. I haven't had sorghum in ages but remember the taste oh so well....

    I have a friend who puts peanut butter and maple syrup on her waffles. She raves about it but I can't bring myself to try it. I put chocolate syrup on mine and she looks at me like I'm out of my mind.

    Was just wondering ( not that Im likely ever to get to taste them anyway, but Im curious ) if anyone has sampled the products listed in the initial posting and has opinions on em ? I like the idea of a regional baseball team park serving real regional food as well as the generic national stuff. It would be like London football teams here serving jellied eels :)
