Popeyes may have just taken Cajun Rice off of its menu, but it appears to be exploring the comeback of a different item: Chicken Nuggets.
Multiple reports of the bite-sized morsels have sprung up in several states across the Midwest and East Coast. These include Texas, Connecticut, Arkansas, and Ohio.
YouTuber Daym Drops was even able to get a hold of them a while back, with a video of the nuggets surfacing as early as December. That means that Popeyes has been playing with these new nuggets for a while, possibly starting them out as a limited test then expanding them more regionally.
Foodbeast has reached out to Popeyes to learn more about what is going on with these new chicken nuggets. UPDATE: Popeyes has confirmed to Foodbeast that the nuggets are being tested as a new entree in select locations.
