And a hilarious solution to the inevitable powdery mess.

Popeyes is all about chicken, sure, but it’s not only about chicken. A little more than a year after the Great Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Rush of 2019, the fast food chain is set to make waves, nationwide, again with a new menu item: Popeyes Chocolate Beignets.

In a sweet nod to its New Orleans roots, Popeyes is adding — alas, for a limited time — a decadent new dessert item, Chocolate Beignets, to its menus across the U.S., following an apparently successful quiet test period in several markets in October.

Stuffed with melted Hershey’s chocolate and generously dusted (you might even say heaped) with powdered sugar, the new Chocolate Beignets will be available at all Popeyes locations starting Monday, December 14, for a limited time. You’ll be able to get three French Quarter-style, chocolate-filled squares of fried dough for $1.99, six for $3.99 and 12 for $7.49.

Because beignets are notorious (and perhaps, by some, beloved) for shedding powdered sugar all over shirts with every bite, Popeyes is also offering a solution for messy — which is to say all — eaters of its new confection. Limited-edition “Beignet Camo” hoodies — a black hooded sweatshirt with splatters of sugar-camouflaging white — will be available at Popeyes’ online merch store.

The hoodies cost $35, which, depending on how many times you rush to Popeyes to score some beignets while they’re available, you may be able to amortize in your favor on dry-cleaning or laundry bills.
