The insane popularity of Popeyes' record-breaking chicken sandwich has probably stolen some attention from other menu items. But we ought not forget, the chain's impressive lineup of dessert offerings -- like that heavenly Bourbon Fudge Pie -- have always been crowd pleasers. And now, Popeyes is introducing a new sweet treat in honor of Valentine's Day.
The Red Velvet Cake Cup, which, naturally, features a "rich and moist red velvet cake," is topped with vanilla frosting. Yes, an interesting departure from the usual cream cheese route, but if you're asking me, it's a welcomed one.
"This Valentine’s Day, Popeyes is offering a new seasonal dessert that is sure to become a fan favorite," a rep for Popeyes said, confirming the news to Thrillist. "Nothing says 'Valentine’s Day' like this sweet and festive specialty treat!"
The Red Velvet Cake will be available beginning February 14 for a limited time at a suggested price of $2.49.
