"As long as they're warm and edible" may be sufficient for some people but not others.

Telling other people what they ought to want to eat is rarely useful. Telling people who have a strong preference for a particular flavor and/or texture that they shouldn't have such preferences isn't likely to be useful either.

I've neither eaten a proper sampling of various cooks' southern biscuits, nor eaten the ones made from the can, so I can't comment on the degree of similarity in that particular case. I will say that I've eaten some very good homemade white rolls, and they were, to my taste, nothing like the ones made from a can. Others' tastebuds and sense of texture may of course vary.

The canned biscuits are only like homemade biscuits in that they are both roughly the same shape. I've eaten a lot of each, they just aren't very similar in texture or taste.

Your problem is you were raised to expect something better than enriched cardboard when biting into a biscuit. You’ve got to simplify, man.

And of course in this instance I use the word "man" in the hipsteresque, gender-neutral sense.

The late comedian, Lewis Grizzard, used to call canned biscuits "whomp biscuits" because of the way g-you opened them.
