While everyone loves that chicken from Popeyes, the popular quick service restaurant has a new permanent menu item. Which of the five Popeyes chicken wing flavors will people order first?

When Popeyes adds a new menu item, it usually comes with much fanfare. Who doesn’t remember the long lines during the chicken sandwich launch? Anytime the food brand chooses to expand its menu, there is much care in that decision.

According to Sami Siddiqui, President of Popeyes North America, “At Popeyes, we like to challenge the status quo and are consistently redefining what’s expected from fast food brands. Ghost Pepper Wings were an overnight success, followed by the addition of Sweet ‘N Spicy wings, our best performing product since the infamous Chicken Sandwich. We know our guests want even more bold Louisiana-inspired wing flavors to choose from and are excited to see our new wings line-up take flight.”

What are the five Popeyes chicken wing flavors?

The five Popeyes chicken wing flavors becoming permanent menu items are new Honey BBQ Wings, new Roasted Garlic Parmesan, new Signature Hot, Ghost Pepper Wings, and Sweet ‘N Spicy Wings. The Ghost Pepper Wings and Sweet ‘N Spicy Wings have been featured previously. Ghost Pepper has been a hit with guests and will continue to be a favorite. The Sweet ‘N Spicy flavor is a little more approachable. Overall, both items have an audience.

Looking at the three new flavors, the Roaster Garlic Parmesan is an interesting choice. The flavor is butter forward, but it has a richness that sets it apart from the other offerings. Too bad there isn’t a fried chicken or boneless wing offering in this flavor. It would be delightful sandwiched between that buttermilk biscuit.

The Signature Hot is for guests who want heat but may not need to have a side of ranch at the ready. Even though the Cajun spice is predominant, the hint of sweetness makes it quite enjoyable. It is like a slow burn that is just the right level.

Overall, Popeyes made smart choices with the flavor variety. Sweet, heat, and tangy are all covered. In a way, the quick service restaurant is giving some other fast causal restaurants a run for their money.

Check with local Popeyes restaurants for pricing and availability. $5.99 for a 6-piece order is the suggested price.

To kick off the menu launch, Popeyes if offering a free 6-piece order with a minimum $10 purchase. Use digital codes, STOPWINGS, NOTTHATWILD, OPENSUNDAY and ONLY1WINGSFLVR, to unlock the offer.
