Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen
Update, December 14, 2020: Back in October, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen announced they were testing out a Louisiana classic: chocolate beignets. The rich and powdered sugar-covered treats were initially only available in test locations in the Boston area, but due to their success, the beignets is now coming to Popeyes restaurants nationwide.
The beignets are fried dough filled with Hershey’s chocolate that are then covered in immense amounts of powdered sugar. The treats can be purchased in three different sizes including a three-piece for $1.99, a six-piece for $3.99, and a 12-piece for $7.49. As always, these prices could vary a bit depending on location.
To really top off the good news, Popeyes is also selling a sweatshirt in honor of the launch. The “Beignet Camo” crewneck is black and features a white splatter design on it so when you inevitably get covered in powdered sugar with every bite, no one will know.

Better make a trip to Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen — and, this time, not for a chicken sandwich. The fast food spot is testing out chocolate beignets, so you can enjoy the tough-to-track-down treat whenever that sweet craving hits.
The warm treat consists of fried dough that is stuffed with a chocolate center and dusted with powdered sugar. You can get them in three sizes: three chocolate beignets for $1.99, six for $3.99, and 12 for $7.49. Chewboom first posted about the news, but FOODBEAST received confirmation from the chain that it’s actually happening.
“As a brand from New Orleans we are always looking to bring new dishes and desserts from our hometown to the menu, but at this time the beignets are only available at select restaurants,” Popeyes told FOODBEAST.
Don’t start freaking out just yet that the chocolate beignets aren’t available near you. So far, they’ve only been spotted in the Boston area — however, Popeyes has confirmed that while they are limited now, they will eventually be hitting menus nationwide.
Now that we think about it, it’s surprising that Popeyes hasn’t offered this treat before. After all, beignets are a classic French Quarter dessert, and Popeyes is based in New Orleans. Better late than never, though, right?
