As if we need another reason to indulge this fall, Popeyes has just added two new menu items that will cure any sweet tooth. The new Chocolate Beignets and Raspberry Cheesecake Fried Pie will be joining the staple Cinnamon Apple Pie on the menu and are available at participating locations for a limited time.
The Chocolate Beignets are inspired by Popeyes’ roots. Beignets are a classic French pastry served all over New Orleans, the city where Popeyes got its start. The outer dough of a beignet is fried, and there’s a creamy filling inside. Beignets are most-famously known for being covered in powdered sugar, making them extra sweet. Popeyes’ Chocolate Beignets mimic the classic ones and are stuffed with a rich chocolate sauce. You can order these treats in three, six, and 12-packs at a price of around $1.99, $3.99, and $7.49.
The second dessert added to the Popeyes lineup is the Raspberry Cheesecake Fried Pie – another indulgent treat you can enjoy for the next few weeks. Forget the slices – this pie is reminiscent of a turnover pie, filled with raspberry pie flavoring, graham cracker crumbs, and cheesecake. Aside from the flakey fried crust, the best part is that it’s only a buck!
Whether you’re rounding out your fried chicken dinner with an order of Beignets, or you’re ordering the Raspberry Cheesecake Fried Pie solo, you can’t go wrong with either of these new menu items.
In fact, Popeyes has always experimented with unique and delicious desserts, like their mini red velvet cake cups. What’s your favorite Popeyes dessert?
