The Popeyes chocolate-stuffed beignets discovered in Massachusetts back in September 2020 are officially launching nationwide.
Popeyes had initially confirmed an eventual nationwide release of these beignets to Foodbeast during their test release in September. Now, Instagram Stories from multiple influencers and models shared on the official Popeyes account confirm that the beignets are arriving nationwide.

Additional Instagram Stories from the influencers, as well as a release from Popeyes, confirm that the beignets will be dropping on Monday, December 14th for a limited time.
Similar to how they are served in New Orleans, these beignets consist of fried dough and are dusted in copious amounts of powdered sugar. Popeyes is adding an extra twist by stuffing the inside with oozy melted Hershey’s chocolate.

Popeyes is pairing the beignets with some new exclusive merch: a “Beignet Camo Hoodie.” While meant to emulate powdered sugar to cover up potential beignet messes, the speckles of white also look like snow. Could make for a fun general winter hoodie.
The hoodies are on sale for $35 each on a special website.
