If you've ever whipped up a salad for a family dinner, or perhaps even a soup dish, then you likely didn't just serve soup or salad. There were probably some other dishes on the table, right? Maybe you served some crackers with the soup, or maybe you had some chicken with your salad, but in general, you had some kind of accompaniment with meals. 

For many people, these side foods take the form of a carb, like a breadstick or a biscuit. It's hard to get enough of bread: It's warm, fresh, and delicious. Bojangles, Popeyes, and even Red Lobster are known for the incredible biscuits that they carry.

However, you don't need to go to a restaurant or fast food place to have incredible biscuits: You can make them in the comfort of your own home. The Pillsbury brand is known for its wonderful breakfast sweets, crescent rolls, and other take-and-bake dough products, and it has many biscuits on its product list. So many, in fact, that you may find yourself shaking your head at the decision of which kind of biscuit to buy.

But even if you randomly grab a pack of these biscuits when you're out grocery shopping, we recommend figuring out which biscuits are best worth your buck because some good biscuits alone can elevate a meal tenfold.

12. Southern Homestyle Honey Butter Biscuits

When you're looking for a good biscuit, you want something that is soft, crispy, and full of a buttery, delicious flavor. Unfortunately, that's not what you will find with Pillsbury's Grands! Southern Homestyle Honey Butter Biscuits

This biscuit is supposed to have a fluffy, baked homemade taste of honey butter, so you'd think that it would taste pretty great. Unfortunately, however, that is anything but the case. While a little bit of sweetness is a good thing when it comes to baking, too much can ruin food, which is what happened with these honey-flavored biscuits.

Each pack of Honey Butter Biscuits has eight big biscuits, so if you do get these, you could at least feed a large family with them. However, they are incredibly sweet, especially in terms of the aftertaste (as per Pillsbury Reviews). 

This isn't the worst thing, and you could easily use it for a breakfast sandwich if that alone was the problem, but you can also get a batch that has incredibly visible chunks of honey butter in them, which isn't fun at all. If you're making a sweeter sandwich, or need something super sweet to offset an overly savory meal, maybe this could work, but more often than not, we'd suggest a different flavor of biscuit.

11. Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits

These biscuits don't taste awful, but they really don't have any attributes that make them stand out too much, either. The Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits ride heavily on that buttermilk flavor, but other than that, there's not really much to say about them. 

Like the other Pillsbury biscuits, you can easily pop these into an oven, bake them for a few minutes, then serve them with a pasta or salad dish. However, the same can be said in regards to just about all of the Pillsbury biscuits, so that really isn't saying too much about these biscuits. 

There are definitely a number of people who enjoy these biscuits, which makes sense, as there's no real reason Pillsbury would sell them otherwise (via Amazon). However, this variety definitely isn't the best Pilsbury has to offer. Multiple people prefer other Pillsbury biscuit flavors over this one, claiming that it is less flavorful than the others. 

When you want a good biscuit, you want the best and not something that is mediocre. However, that doesn't mean these biscuits are bad. If you got these from a store, you'd likely enjoy them, just not as much as some of the other flavors that Pillsbury offers. 

10. Chocolate Chip Sweet Biscuits with Icing

Not all biscuits are meant for lunch or dinner, and not all biscuits are savory. This Pillsbury product isn't just sweet, but it's chocolatey, as well. The Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Sweet Biscuits are smaller than the typical biscuits that come in cans, but they pack just as much flavor as the other Pillsbury products. Each biscuit has chocolate chips throughout, and it comes with a sweet icing to go along with it.

These sweet biscuits would definitely be more of a dessert or pastry to have in the morning with some coffee. They aren't your typical biscuit, however, and while they are good, they also aren't the best.

As much as one would want to claim these biscuits as the best, they're honestly just okay. They don't really have a lot of flavor on their own, according to reviews on the product site, and they heavily rely on the sweetness of the icing for the sugary flavor you'd expect from them. 

The chocolate chips have also been noted as not being large enough to bring any real flavor to the sweet as a whole, which means that the icing is what's really carrying this product, and the icing that accompanies these biscuits can also be found on the blueberry variation of this sweet as well as the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls.

9. Flaky Layers Sweet Hawaiian Biscuits

Hawaiian rolls are an incredible side to pair with a soup or use for some sliders. Unlike some other biscuits, which rely heavily on a buttery, somewhat salty flavor, a good Hawaiian roll is rather sweet, thanks to some of the ingredients used to make them. 

Pillsbury does have a lot of sweet pastry and cinnamon take-and-bake products among its other goods, so it would be fairly simple for it to offer a sweeter biscuit, as well, which it does. The Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers Sweet Hawaiian Biscuits are a more tropical take on the Pillsbury Biscuits, but a fairly decent one, nevertheless.

For the most part, these biscuits taste pretty great, and they are a good bread to use for a sandwich or side (via Amazon). They can't compare to the King's Hawaiian Bread that we are all familiar with seeing in stores, and they could certainly stand to be on the slightly sweeter side, but Pillsbury's take on the flavor is mostly spot on.

There are admittedly those who feel that the rolls have a bad aftertaste due to how much sucralose is used within each bun, but other than that, these biscuits have a great, flaky, and layered texture, along with a solid taste that is decent for a meal.

8. Blueberry Sweet Biscuits with Icing

When you think of a fruit-flavored breakfast item, what's the first thing that comes to mind? For many, it's a blueberry muffin or perhaps a blueberry-flavored donut from Krispy Kreme. Even if these biscuits aren't what you expect, there's no denying the fantastic taste of a blueberry pastry, and even Pillsbury knows this.

The Blueberry Sweet Biscuits with Icing that Pillsbury sells is delicious proof of this, and boy, do these biscuits deliver. If you're a fan of all things blueberry and like your breakfasts and desserts a little sweeter than most, then there's a good chance you'll love these biscuits, too.

Unlike the chocolate-flavored sweet biscuits that you can get from Pillsbury, the blueberry ones are pretty great. The blueberry flavor isn't the heaviest, and it tastes fairly artificial, but it's there, and it doesn't taste bad at all (via Amazon). It also pairs very well with the sweet icing, and it doesn't overly rely on that icing to be a sweet, enjoyable treat. 

They aren't as big as the Grands! biscuits that Pillsbury sells, and they aren't as flaky, so be mindful of that, but they are still great for anyone with a sweet tooth. For any blueberry dessert lovers out there, these biscuits will hit the spot.

7. Southern Homestyle Original Biscuits

Who doesn't love Southern-style food? Fried chicken, peach cobbler, or a delicious Frito pie: These are all fantastic recipes to bake and prepare wherever you are in the country. 

Biscuits are another staple of Southern cuisine and are a big part of many Southern-style or fried chicken-based fast food restaurants, like Popeyes and KFC. The Pillsbury brand also carries Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Original Biscuits, which, upon first glance, seem as though they could perfectly replicate the taste and feeling of a home-cooked Southern-style biscuit, and for the most part, these biscuits succeed in doing so.

Many people love these biscuits, appreciating not only their taste but the ease of popping them in and out of the oven so that they can be enjoyed hot (via Amazon). They're great to pair with gravy or some other dish, and though they don't have the wonderful flaky nature of some of the other Pillsbury biscuits, many reviewers on the Pillsbury website love this product. 

These biscuits are almost perfect, and they have a lovely, buttery, filling flavor. If you want to liven them up a bit, some recommend adding honey butter to the biscuits to give them a bit more flavor, though there are other Pillsbury biscuits that contain a dose of added flavor. 

6. Southern Homestyle Southern Recipe Biscuits

There's something unique about Southern-style food that just makes it taste incredible. It's got a homey, familiar taste, and many of the recipes that fall under the "Southern food" label definitely scream "comfort food," like ambrosia salad or biscuits and gravy. Since biscuits can be found in many of these recipes and foods, the Pillsbury brand carries a lot of Southern-style biscuits; so many that it's easy to mix them up, and you might not even notice the difference between some of them.

The Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Southern Recipe Biscuits taste pretty good. These biscuits have a crisp, crunchy outside that's satisfying to bite into, along with a fluffy, flavorful inside that's delightful to taste. In fact, these biscuits are so satisfying that some reviewers claim that they didn't eat for half of the rest of the day after consuming them. 

They aren't as popular as some of the other Pillsbury biscuits that you can find on store shelves, and for the most part, you might not notice the difference between this biscuit flavor and most of the other Southern-style Pillsbury products. Regardless, this is still a great addition to the biscuit lineup that you will likely find very tasty.

5. Southern Homestyle Butter Tastin' Biscuits

The Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Butter Tastin' Biscuits are another Southern-style variety offered by Pillsbury. Each packet has eight biscuits, and this Southern-style biscuit flavor is probably the best that the brand carries. You could put these in an oven to cook them or even pop them in an air fryer and find yourself with a tasty, enticing plate of buttery biscuits. 

These biscuits do make up some of Pillsbury's better products in terms of consistency and texture. They aren't flaky, but even without the flakiness of biscuits, the Southern Homestyle Butter biscuit flavor is still up there at the top.

These biscuits are incredibly easy to find compared to other Pillsbury biscuits, and they are sold on many shopping sites. They are also easier to differentiate since they have a yellow label, as opposed to a red or light blue one.

These biscuits are incredible, whether you are using these for breakfast, dinner, or even as a hearty snack. They have a fluffy, buttery taste, and they are also quick and easy to prepare (via Walmart).

The Southern Homestyle Butter flavored bread makes up some of the best Pillsbury biscuits out there. The butter is what really carries these biscuits, so expect nothing less from them the next time you buy this product.

4. Flaky Layers Original Biscuits

The Pillsbury brand excels at flaky, layered biscuits. Bake one of these, and you'll find layers upon layers of flaky, flavorful biscuits filled with a soft, fluffy interior. Pillsbury carries several flavors with flaky layers, most of which are entirely delicious and are among the best that Pillsbury has to offer. 

However, we can't forget about the original flaky layers, which started it all for the flaky biscuits. The Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers Original Biscuits are not to be messed with since they are something that should always be welcome on a dining room table to enjoy.

The people who have tried them out love these biscuits. They claim that these are incredibly filling and fresh, and once you pop them out of the round can, and bake them up, you'll be met with some of the best Pillsbury biscuits you've ever had (via Amazon). 

Reviews on the Pillsbury website state that they love the buttery, flaky nature of the product. Some people say that these even taste like the biscuits their parents used to make them as children. We could easily see these being used for a sandwich, side, snack, or pretty much anything else. 

3. Flaky Layers Honey Butter Biscuits

Ah, honey butterPillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Honey Butter Biscuits are certainly not among the best, not because they're awful, but because they simply cannot compare to the other flavors that the brand sells. 

When done right, honey butter can be amazing, and when paired with the fantastic flakiness that features in many of the other Pillsbury products, you've got yourself the ingredients to make a pretty fantastic biscuit.

Pillsbury masterfully makes a sweet, well-balanced honey-flavored delight known as the Flaky Layers Honey Butter Biscuits. They're incredibly fluffy, and the layers they contain makes them all the more appetizing. Where this biscuit succeeds and Southern Homestyle Honey Butter Biscuits fail are in terms of the honey butter flavoring. 

Where the other biscuits taste overly sweet, this biscuit flavor is a lot more balanced, and many people enjoy the sweet, honey flavor that each biscuit carries (via Pillsbury). Overall, these sweet biscuits are a great thing to add to a meal or use in whatever recipes you might wish to combine them with. 

2. Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits

There are a number of buttermilk-flavored biscuits out there, although none of them live up to the standard that the Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits have set. These buttery biscuits are sold in cans, ready to be popped out, set on a cooking sheet, and baked, like most of the other biscuits that Pillsbury carries. 

While the Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits have a bit more of a buttery taste than other biscuits, they pair fantastically with some jam or gravy slathered on top or in between the layers. However, no matter how you have these biscuits, they are a wonderful addition to any meal.

These are definitely some of Pillsbury's more popular products, as the reviews on both their website and Amazon range within the 1000s and higher. Most of those reviews praise them for their taste and flaky nature

They are a little sweet, as most buttermilk-flavored things are, but not in a way that takes away from the biscuits in any way. If you ever saw these in a store and didn't have any dinner plans beforehand, purchasing a can of these biscuits would make an incredible accompaniment to whatever you end up eating. 

1. Flaky Layers Butter Tastin' Biscuits

The Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers Butter Tastin' Biscuits are the absolute best of the best, so why shouldn't we love this biscuit product? In these, we have it all: An extra buttery flavor, flaky, peel-apart layers, and an incredible taste overall.

Remember how much we liked the Southern Homestyle Butter Tastin' Biscuits? Well, take everything good about them, then add on the fact that these are part of the "Flaky Layers" biscuit variety that Pillsbury sells. If perfection took the form of a store-bought refrigerated biscuit, then these are it. 

We can't emphasize enough just how incredible these biscuits are. They're a true comfort food, and they carry an unforgettable flavor within each bite. Some reviews describe them as being as close to handmade perfection as a store-bought biscuit can get (via Amazon). 

Other reviewers back the greatness of this product, writing that they enjoy adding honey or jelly between the layers, adding to the already great taste of these biscuits. The next time you're at a Target, Aldi's, or even a Walmart, and you happen to see these biscuits in their refrigerated food section, you might want to get some because if you want to rescue a meal, these biscuits will work every time.
