Popeyes Trial Breafast Features Grits, Bacon & Steak Biscuits

Popeyes for breakfast. Isn’t it music to your ears? During an “experiment” hosted at a single location in Mooresville, North Carolina, people got to enjoy some of the finer things in life during a two-day testing phase.

On May 16 and 17 from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., magic was born. According to the The Huffington Post, the single store offered: grits; bacon, sausage or chicken breakfast wraps; a country fried steak biscuit; a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit; a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit; a “Louisiana’s Best Chicken” biscuit; and a “Blackberry’n Cream Cheese Turnover.”

Damn those North Carolinians.


But this may not be the first time Popeyes dabbled in the breakfast game. In 2012, a store location in Maryville, Tennessee, gave out breakfast coupons (see pic above). Although, it just so happened to also be April 1, so it may have been a cruel, heartless joke.

Currently, the fried chicken powerhouse doesn’t offer breakfast nationwide, minus a few airport locations. And sadly, Alicia Thompson, Popeyes’s vice president of communications and public relations, confirmed to The Huffington Post that there are no immediate plans for national menu changes. “We are testing a breakfast menu in one market. We do not want to speculate as to future plans for the menu,” she said.

Why you gotta toy with us like that, Popeyes?

Maybe in the near future this dream will become a reality. One can only dream.
