Popeye’s Set to Release Chocolate-Filled Beignets! Popeye’s looking to gain the same momentum of its famous chicken sandwich for something a little sweeter. They have debuted chocolate-filled beignets to their menu! While still in just select areas, the dessert will be heading to a nationwide scale “eventually.” The beignet is a nod to Popeye’s New Orleans roots, with the brand saying, “As a brand from New Orleans we are always looking to bring new dishes.” The filled, fried dough treat will reportedly come in three, six, and 12-piece options and is expected to hit nationwide restaurants in the near future. Do you think Popeye’s needs to add more New Orleans-type food to its menu? Will you be enjoying the chocolate-filled beignet?
