Red Lobster® Celebrates The Return Of Endless Shrimp®
ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Endless Shrimp is back at Red Lobster for a limited time. This year, shrimp lovers have a variety of options to choose from, including NEW! Pineapple Habanero Coconut Bites, featuring a balance of sweet and spicy flavors, and back by popular demand Teriyaki Grilled Shrimp, as well as two new craft beer cocktails – the Seaside Shandy and Angry Lobster.
At Red Lobster, Endless Shrimp is the number one guest-requested event, and for good reason. Eighty-two percent of American adults eat shrimp, according to a survey conducted by Harris Poll® on behalf of Red Lobster of over 2,000 adults. The survey found that over half (53 percent) of shrimp-eating American adults say they can never eat just one, and nearly half (47 percent) say they like a variety of sauces and flavors with their shrimp. With Endless Shrimp, guests can have as much shrimp as they want, any way they want.
This year's Endless Shrimp selections include:
- NEW! Pineapple Habanero Coconut Bites
- Teriyaki Grilled Shrimp
- Hand-Breaded Shrimp
- Garlic Shrimp Scampi
- Shrimp Linguini Alfredo
Red Lobster is also introducing guests to two new craft beer cocktails, the Seaside Shandy and the Angry Lobster. The Seaside Shandy features Shock Top® Belgian White Ale, Cointreau and fresh citrus juices, while the Angry Lobster features Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider, tropical fruit juices and Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey. Both new cocktails are served in a beer can-shaped commemorative glass with the Red Lobster logo. Glasses are sold with the purchase of a cocktail or can be purchased separately.
"Endless Shrimp is the ultimate event for shrimp lovers, giving them the freedom to explore exciting combinations of new and classic dishes that can't be found anywhere else," said Mark Gilley, SVP of Marketing & Consumer Insights at Red Lobster. "Last year, guests came in again and again to enjoy Endless Shrimp, and we're excited to welcome them back to share their endless reasons to celebrate with friends and family this year."
During Endless Shrimp, guests are invited to share their reasons for loving Endless Shrimp on social media using #EndlessReasonsContest and be entered to win daily prizes throughout the event.
