The last few months have been times of adjustment and change for most food chains. To face the crisis they have not only had to modify their sales and delivery methods but in many cases, they have introduced new items to their menus to make operations easier or attract new customers.
Even though Popeyes' fried chicken sandwich may be the first thing we think of when the fast-food chain is mentioned, it was praised for its Voodoo Tenders and deep-fried dessert lineup long before this was the trend.
Popeyes is now unleashing chocolate-stuffed beignets doused in powdered sugar, to keep up with its built-up reputation for sweet things.
According to the outlet, the beignets are available in several size options: three for $1.99, six for $3.99, or a dozen for $7.49.
The deep-fried New Orleans staple has already landed around the Boston area, and it's set to join menus nationwide "eventually.”
"As a brand from New Orleans we are always looking to bring new dishes and desserts from our hometown to the menu, but at this time the beignets are only available at select restaurants," a rep for Popeyes told Thrillist when asked for comment on the menu debut.
