Popeyes Chicken Nuggets Return!

Daym Drops posted a video in December 2020 announcing that “Popeyes Chicken Nuggets ARE BACK!!” A couple of months later, Chew Boom released more information about Popeyes chicken nuggets testing in select markets around the U.S.

At the test locations, the nuggets were available in 8, 12, 24, 36, and 48 pieces. In the Daym Drops video, the menu only has 8 and 12-piece options.

I was going to say it’s been nine long years, but honestly, the Popeyes nuggets quietly disappeared from the menu in 2012. Like their super awesome chicken sandwich, the new nuggets with buttermilk breading will be launching nationally during the third week of July.

The Blackened Chicken Sandwich, which has also been tested, does not have a national rollout date…yet. In the meantime, have you tried the Popeyes blackened tenders yet? No?!? C’mon, don’t be a rookie!
