It's a quick, easy, and delicious way to solve the problem. The IDK Meal first made its debut in 2021. It is now available for those who order online or via the app.

The addition comes after they added a new biscuit to its menu in select locations. Customers noticed the chain is selling a new Strawberry Biscuit.
