Popeyes Collabs With Megan Thee Stallion For New ‘Hottie Sauce’

Two cultural icons in Popeyes and Grammy-winning rapper Megan Thee Stallion have linked up to produce a new Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce.

The Hottie Sauce is just as saucy as Megan, I’m sure, as it hosts a mix of honey, cider vinegar, and Aleppo pepper, for added spice. Starting October 19, Hottie Sauce will be featured in Popeyes Chicken Sandwiches and Nuggets in the US and 14 other countries around the world.

It’s noted that this will be the first time Popeyes will offer another iteration of their iconic Chicken Sandwich, which is a true flex that Megan Thee Stallion should pop her collar for.

Popeyes Is Bringing Back Cajun Style Turkey

The tradition of Thanksgiving turkey doesn’t deviate much into more creative endeavors — sure there’s the occasional fried turkey that damn near burns the entire joint down. But really, there’s not much variety when it comes to the centerpiece bird. However, Popeyes has a Cajun Style Turkey that’s been a lowkey hit for fans.

With much thanks to the good folks at Popeyes, they’re allowing for some variety and spice this Thanksgiving by bringing back their Cajun Style Turkey starting on October 18.

The Cajun Style Turkey is hand-rubbed and infused with zesty Louisiana-style seasonings and comes pre-cooked, so all you have to do is re-heat and serve. It will be available at participating US locations starting 10/18.

Stuffed carbs haven proven to be elite vessels for food. Empanadas, sandwiches, dumplings — all legends. Fried pie? It’s right up there with them. Knowing this, Popeyes is continuing that storied consistency with the debut of their new Blackberry Cheesecake Fried Pie.

The delicious situation breaks down like this: blackberry pie filling, graham cracker crumbs and cheesecake, all cozied up inside a deep-fried, turnover-style crust. Tremendous, really.

Go ahead and grab a Blackberry Cheesecake Fried Pie from any participating Popeyes locations nationwide for a limited time.

Popeyes Singapore Debuts New ‘Fizzy Pop’ Chicken

Popeyes locations in Singapore have debuted one of the most unique fried chicken meals you’ll ever have with the new Fizzy Pop Chicken.

Fizzy Pop Chicken starts with the brand’s signature fried chicken, then is topped with a new sweet, spicy and savory sauce made with a mix of tomatoes and chilies. The kick here is that it comes with a separate packet of fizzy seasoning to sprinkle on top of your saucy friend chicken.

The Fizzy Pop seasoning has a Pop Rocks-like effect, creating a dynamic experience in your mouth with each bite.

Popeyes’ New Nuggets Will Soon Be Available Nationwide

Popeyes already has some serious fried chicken cred under its belt as the reigning champ of the Fried Chicken Sandwich “wars” on top of some seriously good crispy poultry.

They’re looking to bolster their reputation as fast food’s top fried chicken by doing the classic nugget better than everyone else, and that iteration is getting served up nationwide soon.

Foodbeast first reported on the existence of these new nuggets in February 2021, and on July 27th, they will be available at all Popeyes locations nationwide. During tests, these chicken bites got some serious high marks on Twitter, akin to what drove the popularity behind Popeyes’ signature chicken sandwich.

In restaurants, you’ll be able to order between 4 and 36 pieces of the new nuggets, which use the same recipe as the chicken in the Popeyes sandwich. Folks that order using the Popeyes app can go even bigger and get 4 dozen nuggets at once.

Time will have to tell if Popeyes can strike lightning twice with these nuggets, but so far, the early signs are pretty promising.

Dubbed “Popeyes Rewards,” the new loyalty program from Popeyes looks to bless hungry patrons with exclusive offers like menu item deals, celebrations, merchandise, and member experiences.

Blackened Chicken Sandwiches Have Been Spotted On The Popeyes Menu

Popeyes broke the fast food industry last time they introduced a fried chicken sandwich, mainly because people kept commenting on how good it actually was.

The fried chicken specialists seem to have released another sandwich, but opted not to fry up the poultry this time around.

Instead, they’ve come up with a Blackened Chicken Sandwich (also available in spicy form) that’s popped up on the menu on their website. YouTuber Peep This Out!, who found the sandwich at a location in Southern California, also noted that ordering this non-fried sandwich had to be done through the Popeyes app.

The sandwich is available in classic and spicy form, both of which consist of a blackened chicken breast, pickles, mayo, and a brioche bun, making it similar in build to the viral Popeyes fried chicken sandwich.

Blackened chicken is chicken rubbed in a blend of spices that’s then cooked over high heat. It’s not fried, which gives Popeyes a possible better-for-you version of their fried chicken staple.

At this point, it’s not clear yet how long the blackened sandwich has been out or where you can get it, but Chewboom is reporting that the sandwich is a limited time offer at participating locations.

Foodbeast has also reached out to Popeyes to get more info and we’ll keep you updated as we know more.

Other Fast Food Brands Are Roasting Taco Bell’s New Chicken Sandwich Taco

Taco Bell made a splash with their latest item in the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco this week, which was met with excitement for some and confusion from others — color me the latter as the “bun” or whatever the chicken held looked more like a bao. Turns out the news of The Bell throwing their hat in the chicken sandwich wars didn’t go unnoticed by some of the other big players in the scene, namely Zaxby’s and Popeyes Chicken.

The two popular fried chicken franchises wasted no time in taking their shots at Taco Bell’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco, with Zaxby’s firing off the following tweet:

Popeyes, noted for being one of the best fast food fried chicken chains in the country, let it be known that Superman’s cape shall not be tugged at:

Though Taco Bell usually nails it in terms of menu innovations, the curious application of a taco and sandwich together seemed like a misfire that was easy prey to the bigger birds on the block.
