Popeyes is bringing more Louisiana flair to the menu with new Chocolate Beignets

Popeyes is known for its Louisiana style cuisine. When thinking of the popular fast food chain, most people mostly think first of either the fried chicken or the now-famous chicken sandwich. But what about dessert? According to Chew Boom, Popeyes is launching Chocolate Beignets nationwide to fill the need for sweets.

I have never had the fortune to travel to New Orleans for some authentic Creole or Cajun cuisine. More importantly, I have never been able to go to Cafe du Monde for some of their famous beignets. I don’t think the Popeyes beignets will be the next best thing, but they will be better than no beignets at all.

Popeyes has the gift of a Hershey’s chocolate filling for its new beignets

Beignets are similar to donuts and can even be called the French style of the donut. Like most beignets, Popeyes is frying its beignets and covering them with tons of powdered sugar. If this wasn’t enough, the beignets are also filled with a chocolate filling made from Hershey’s cocoa. Each individual beignets is just bursting with Hershey’s chocolate.

Popeyes is launching the Chocolate Beignets after testing them in select markets earlier this year. Thankfully we all get the chance to eat the sweet treat. They come in three-piece, six-piece, and 12 piece sizes. Prices range from $1.99 to $7.49. So you get beignets at a great deal. The beignets are fried to order. This means you will have a piping hot and gooey chocolate filling.

As an added offer, Popeyes is also taking care of those of us who get messy from the powdered sugar. Beignet Camo hoodies are available at ThatLookFromPopeyes.com.

For $35 a hoodie, you can intentionally have the powdered sugar look. This way if you get sloppy with the beignets as everyone does, you are all covered.
