One year after Popeyes launched its viral fried chicken sandwich, the fried chicken chain rolls out another new item, this time in the dessert category.
Popeyes is now adding chocolate-stuffed beignets that are fried to order and dusted with powdered sugar, Foodbeast reports.
Currently, the chain is only testing the item at select locations. Reportedly, the beignets have been tracked down on menus at Popeyes restaurants in Massachusetts, Foodbeast says.
Popeyes confirmed to the outlet that the chocolate-stuffed beignets “will eventually get a nationwide release.” So, look out for this New Orleans staple in drive-thrus soon.
“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 representative for Popeyes told Foodbeast.
So far, there’s no word on exactly when the new item will roll out to other locations nationwide.
