Popeyes to launch beignets nationwide for limited time as it doubles down on dessert
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is adding chocolate beignets to its menu nationwide to lure consumers to its restaurants during the holiday season. The only permanent dessert on its menu is the cinnamon apple pie, but Popeyes also sells limited-time dessert offerings, which are sometimes only available regionally. Starting Monday, the beignets, which are a deep-fried pastry that Popeyes stuffed with Hershey's chocolate, are available for a limited time in three-, six- and 12-packs. The dessert is a famous staple of New Orleans, where Popeyes was founded, although the chain now is headquartered in Miami. But he said it's unlikely to surpass the success of its chicken sandwich, which was added to menus nationwide more than a year ago.cnbc.com
