Popeye's is testing out gold-coated chicken wings


Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen has been a fan favorite for quite some time -- and as the food chain celebrates the opening of its 3,000th restaurant, it is promoting a new item to thank its customers.

For a limited time only, patrons can get their fix of 24 Karat Champagne Wings. The celebratory wings, dipped in champagne-infused hand batter and tossed in edible 24 Karat gold flakes, are deliciously-unique in every single way.

“We are thrilled to open our 3,000th restaurant and have even more guests enjoying our incredible fried chicken,” said Alex Santoro, President of Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen. “We wanted to share this celebration with our fans, so our chefs cooked up something extra special for them. It’s a fun way for guests to celebrate this milestone right along with us.”

The 24-karat meal will be available October 4 in four select cities: Elizabeth, NJ, New York, NY, New Orleans, LA and Anaheim, CA. It includes six boneless wings, choice of side and a warm biscuit, as part of the Boneless Wings Bash.
