It was three months ago that we at Guilty Eats happily reported that Popeyes, best known the last couple of years for their Chicken Sandwich, had decided to bring back one of their other very popular menu items.
After being gone for years, the chicken-focused fast food chain revealed that they were bringing back their Ghost Pepper Wings, albeit for a very limited engagement. It was part of a larger campaign that they were using to promote their app and ordering online.
Many fans feared that once the promotion was over, that would be it. The Ghost Pepper Wings would be gone once again, never to return. However, it looks like folks shouldn’t have worried if the report from the chickens over at Chewboom is to be believed.
Ghost Pepper Wings are once again back at Popeyes for a limited time.
Popeyes has announced that Ghost pepper Wings are back for a limited time. For those that don’t remember, the wings are made from bone-in chicken wings that have been marinated in a ghost pepper spice blend for 12 hours. Then they are battered and breaded in a Southern style coating and deep fried.
Additionally, Popeyes has added a new Mango Lemonade to the menu, also for a limited time. It is available chilled or frozen and includes a mango fruit flavor and is made with cane sugar.
And as if that wasn’t enough, they have also revealed that the Popeyes Foundation will be having its first Spring Fundraiser. From now until June 4, anyone who makes a donation to help communities in a time of need will receive a coupon for a free apple pie.
So you get the return of Ghost Pepper Wings, a new Mango Lemonade and a chance to get a free apple pie just for helping others. Sounds like you have absolutely no reason to head out for some chicken.
