The White Castle quick service restaurant chain has returned Shrimp Nibblers to its menu for a limited time. The bite-sized butterfly shrimp, prepared with a crispy, golden coating, will be available at outlets in the United States through April 17.

“Our Shrimp Nibblers are so good they reel in more fans every time we offer them,” said Lynn Blashford, chief marketing officer for White Castle. “They’re definitely a perennial favorite with our customers.”

White Castle first introduced Shrimp Nibblers systemwide in 2015. Since then, the brand has brought the popular seafood item back annually during the Lenten season – which runs from March 2-April 14 this year – when many followers of the Christian faith seek non-meat meal options. Sold in small, medium and sack sizes, the product complements the chain’s other year-round seafood menu items, including its Panko Fish Slider and Fish Nibblers. The Panko Fish Slider features flaky, wild-caught Alaska pollock coated with seasoned panko breading and topped with cheese. The Fish Nibblers are also made from Alaska pollock that’s coated in a savory breading, but like the Shrimp Nibblers, they’re prepared as bite-sized pieces that are easy to eat.

While it’s seafood season at White Castle, meat eaters are also being lured with a special deal for its signature burger. The price for a 10-sack of Original Sliders, featuring square beef patties steam grilled on a bed of onions, has been reduced to $6.99 in most markets and $7.99 in New York, New Jersey and Chicago (not available in Arizona or Florida). This offer is good through April 17.

America’s first fast food hamburger chain, has been in business for 101 years. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, the family-owned business started serving the Original Slider in 1921. Today, the company owns and operates more than 350 restaurants and offers frozen Sliders in retail packs sold to shoppers in supermarkets and other grocery stores.
