These are crazy delicious, if you missed these during the previous limited sale....

Ghost Pepper Wings Are Back At Popeyes For A Limited Time



Popeyes welcomes back Ghost Pepper Wings as the chain’s latest limited time offering.

The returning fan-favorites feature bone-in chicken wingettes and drumettes marinated in an “exotic blend of peppers” including a “dash” of ghost peppers – battered and breaded in a Southern style crispy coating and deep-fried until golden and crispy.

Ghost Pepper Wings are available in a variety of options, including 6-piece and 12-piece combos served with one regular side, a biscuit and drink, plus your choice of dipping sauce. Dinner options are also available minus the drink.

They’re also offering the Ultimate Wing Bundle, where you get 24-pieces of Ghost Pepper Wings served with your choice of 4 regular sides, 4 biscuits, 4 drinks and 4 dipping sauces for $29.99, although prices may vary by location.

I don't know, man. Breaded wings done right are really really tasty. It's got to be fresh though, and it's got to be cooked correctly. But when done right, when you get a nice crispy exterior, and shake some sauce on it, and serve right away.... gotdamn.....

Grilled naked wings are very good and better for you, relatively speaking. That’s what I get if I get wings. Unless I’m drunk enough at a bar with that serves fried breaded wings. God damn are those things good then, grease bomb and all.

Yup.

I don't even do traditional bone-in wings anymore. If they're not breaded and crispy, I like them smoked.

I've about given up on fast food. It's especially frustrating when I want to try something new and am trying to convince my family (who has a phobia of trying new things :-)) and that happens.

Twice in the last couple of months I've tried something by myself, had a great experience and as soon as I convince my family to try it, they whip up some shit on a shingle and my family says "never again".
This is about where I am at. The closest Popeyes to be is less than 2 miles away but it might as well be 50 it's that disgusting. It either dry or undercooked and rubbery. I refuse to drive more than 2 miles for most fast food so I avoid.

I've driven home late from work tired and rolled through a fast food drive-through to eat and get home to relax. It always seems to in in a big letdown. I always think to myself I could have just wated 30 more minutes and microwaved a couple of dogs and been happer and saved 7 bucks.

Oh hell yes. This is the way.

I am far from a pepper head but I can stand a little heat when I want to pay for my foolish ways the next day.

I tried those ghost pepper wings last go around and found them fairly mild but flavorful. I was out of town working though and anything tastes better that isn't a crappy burger and one of the fast food burger joints. I just won't consider them at my nearest to home popeyes as I know they will f them up.

this is where I am at too. All fast food chains are capable of producing good food but they are wildly inconsistent. those ghost wings sound good but I'm not gonna find out.


I would rather spend money on a sure thing.... wings from Slim Chickens, wings from Old Chicago... those are great. Zaxxbys serves good wings too. outside of those 3, I'm not going to risk it

They were a good buy. Crust was crispy, seasoning was on point and the taste was what you would expect of a Popeyes product but they were not as spicy as I imagined a "ghost pepper" labeled item would be. Only gripe is the the wings were tiny...but I guess non steroid chicken is a good thing.

Tiny bit off topic but I was in Eureka Springs once and happened upon a little dessert place that was advertising homemade habanero strawberry ice cream. I decided to try some. One of the best tasting scoops of ice cream I’ve ever eaten!

Yeah, who wants to risk fast food when you've got microwaved hot dogs? LOL

the fast food in the immediate area near my house is just pure garbage. I can actually smell the old grease from the nearby sonic and hardee's by my house lol.

only thing that is consistent / good is the Chipotle near me. we just got a wing stop, but I briefly browsed their prices online last weekend as I was interested in trying it...and seemed pretty over priced. I don't mind paying for food if it's good...but that's the problem in my area. it's all trash and not worth it.

nearest Popeyes is probably 15 minutes away and has always been good, sans a time here and there. It's just never on our radar due to the traffic chaos in the immediate area.

bonus, I have a Go Chicken Go probably 1/2 mile down the street.
