When most people think of White Castle, it's because of its small, square hamburgers, not seafood. But as Lent approaches, and many diners may be looking for seafood choices, the chain is bringing back its Seafood Crab Cake Sliders and Shrimp Nibblers.
Secrets Fast Food Chains Don't Want You to Know
The Seafood Crab Cake Slider is topped with a zesty creole sauce and served on the chain's signature slider bun. The Shrimp Nibblers are made with butterfly shrimp and served with a choice of four dipping sauces, including cocktail, ranch, tartar or "zesty zing." The items are available at most White Castle restaurants for a limited time, White Castle told The Daily Meal in an email.
"At White Castle, we've been innovators since 1921, when we started the first fast-food chain," Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle, said in a statement. "Last year, we were again a leader by being the first to offer a seafood crab cake sandwich at all restaurants, and now we're excited to bring this tasty seafood sandwich back along with our popular Shrimp Nibblers."
The items aren't brand-new. Shrimp Nibblers debuted in 2013, while the Seafood Crab Cake Slider debuted nationwide in 2017 after being tested in Louisville in 2016. And they're also not expensive. The Seafood Crab Cake Slider is priced at $1.29, while the Shrimp Nibblers come in three sizes - small for $3.79, medium for $5.99 and a sack for $8.99. Whether or not you'll reel in these seafood items, here are 9 things you didn't know about White Castle.
