Popeyes 24K Fried Chicken Wings

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is offering a new limited-time only menu item to celebrate the opening of the corporation's 3000th restaurant franchise in the United States.

The new location, which opened in Elizabeth, New Jersey in August, is offering fried chicken wings dipped in 24K gold flake batter and champagne.

The golden boneless wings will be served as a side dish, and a biscuit for $5 while supplies last, according to USA Today.

The wings will are only available at 4 locations in America: New York City, New Orleans, Anaheim, CA, and the Elizabeth, NJ location.

"We wanted to share this celebration with our fans, so our chefs cooked up something extra special for them," said Popeyes president Alex Santoro in a statement. "It's a fun way for guests to celebrate this milestone right along with us," he added.

In case you're wondering, gold is safe to consume. Edible gold is available in flakes, gold leaf, and powder form, and has been served in champagne, cake, doughnuts and other foodstuffs for over a century. Eating gold is a preferred indulgence among the rich and famous who don't mind paying top dollar.

  • Judge Mental Will

    You know that actually sounds good ?

  • Soda

  • KcoolMuziq

  • monique

    I love boneless chicken. I don't caste what they say, I'm not consuming gold flakes just because the rich do. They said it was dangerous to eat too many eggs, avocados and now its okay to eat them daily. I'll pass, save it for the bvank.

  • SweetTEE

    So basically, those 4 locations pay $5 for some gold plated chicken while the other 2996 locations keep paying the same high ass price for the same basic nasty chicken? What kind of marketing is that?

  • dontgetblocked

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    The key to good azz fried chicken ...... for me is lemon pepper seasoning ....... two splashes (shakes) when you season that meat ...... chile season yo shyt ........ let it marinate about 30 min before you fry ...... buttermilk and 1 egg .... beat that up pour over yo seasoned chicken (Don't over saturate ya chicken) may have ya meat to dark ..... chile mix it good ... sit back in the fridge for about 20- 30 mins ... chile get that grease hot!!!! ....Season yo flour how the fugg you like ..... and drop that chicken in hot grease .... Chicken be ready (when yo chicken floats) golden brown ........ Be yo own popeyes ... Boom! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/85cba1e83c0a11739ffd5f452224b416ce3b31ecd7b60144f8501447c1c6387d.gif

    Because milk is NOT for human consumption. Period. It's filled with pus and blood. Rat milk is for rats. Dog milk is for dogs. Goat milk is for goats. Cow's milk is for humans????? Human's milk is provided to what animal to sustain healthy teeth and bones? Leave cow's milk alone!

  • Yoni7

    I HAAAAAAAAATTTTTEEEEEEEE Cane's! No flavor at all. No seasoning. Their fries are whack. That's that YT folks shit! OUR Cane's be empty as fukk. I think I only liked their lemonade. Do they even have spicy strips?

  • Musiclover

  • leapyearpisces

    i'll report back in about a week or so. :-)

  • xenaD

    Mmm fried food ? LoL cheat day hurry up

  • xenaD

    Whenever I fry chicken I use flour only! Never make a batter unless I’m frying a breast for a chicken sandwich... I don’t like “battered chicken”

  • Allihave2say

    but…the gold tho?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    okay! thanks Shug!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Popeyes always have my tummy to up

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This is not battered love ..... I cook crispy fried chicken ....

  • Wreckognize Game

    They act too stupid when they have specials at Popeyes down here. I don't trust them fools they will get lazy and give you regular chicken and spray paint it gold. NOPE. We drove up at 7pm for those ghost pepper wings, the chick said sorry all the wings are frozen

  • Reenaface

    The last time I had Popeyes back in 2010 it sent me to the hospital with painful gas that traveled from my left arm to my chest. I haven't eaten there since. That shit is potent!

  • xenaD

    O... I seen egg and buttermilk & flour sounded a little dredgy ??

  • Judge Mental Will

    i just ordered a jar off esty lol

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    If you use a lot of buttermilk maybe so ... you just need about a teaspoon in a half if you cook a 6 pack of chicken wings ..... I don't use much .... but it gets it crispy ....

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    and the egg helps make those wings a pretty golden color as well

  • the chosen one

    There will be A LOT of 24k gold turds floating around the cities sewage systems.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    The actual owners of this franchise are white.The founder learned how to fry chicken by hanging out with black people, in the housing complex he lived in. SMH!

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    they will get lazy and give you regular chicken and spray paint it gold

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    cant be that much gold in it if it's only 5 dollars

  • Logan Roberts

    Probably gold-plated ?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    You didn't miss out on ANYTHING. When they came out, I ordered some for my kids and I and let me tell you... They were really tiny, hardly any meat on them and they weren't spicy like we thought they would be. Their spicy chicken is spicier than them stupid ghost pepper wings they came out with. It was a waste of my money and I was HIGHLY pissed.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I prefer Church's chicken over Popeye's overly priced dry AF chicken.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Ice cream machine issue at MCDonald's is the measure of me and my issue with Popeyes when they say no spicy chicken I can give you mild. I really be pissed?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Man!! WHY is their ice cream machine always broke though?! I wonder if the employees always say that so that way they don't have to clean it every night.
