To celebrate the opening of their 3,000th store, Popeyes announced a Boneless Wing Bash meal which includes chicken wings dipped in champagne and coated in a 24-karat gold batter. The deal is available today only at four locations.
If you live in the New York City, you can purchase this exclusive item on 75 Lexington Avenue. The other places are 621 Canal Street in New Orleans, 1005 North Magnolia in Anaheim, California, and their 3,000th store at 868 C E Grand Street in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The restaurant chain has indicated that an overwhelmingly positive reception towards the wings could lead to them bringing the dish back in additional stores.
For now, the intention behind this exclusive offer was to include Popeyes’ customers on this momentous occasion. "We wanted to share this celebration with our fans, so our chefs cooked up something extra special for them," Popeyes president Alex Santoro said in a statement, per USA TODAY. "It’s a fun way for guests to celebrate this milestone right along with us."
The idea of offering 24-karat gold chicken wings isn’t a new concept if you’re familiar with The Ainsworth. However, at $45 for ten wings, the New York City-based restaurant is a far more costly option than the ones you can get at one of the select Popeyes locations.
The 24-Karat Champagne Wings is part of a deal that features six boneless wings, choice of a side, and a biscuit for just $5.
