Popeyes Is Bringing Back This Beloved Discontinued

Popeyes fans hate seeing their favorite products go from the menu. During the Chicken Sandwich Wars of 2019, the immensely popular

chicken sandwich sold out for two months, sparking a social media commotion. One Tennessee man even sued the restaurant after leaving empty-handed.

Twitter grieved for months after one side was canceled two years later. Popeyes discontinued Cajun Rice, one of its most famous Cajun side

dishes, in February. Popeyes fans tweeted that the rice was the chain's best side dish and petitioned to bring it back.

Popeyes Cajun Rice contains minced pork, bell pepper, onion, garlic, celery, and cayenne pepper with Cajun and creole seasonings. It costs

$3.49 in most places. Biscuits, Coleslaw, Red Beans & Rice, Mashed Potatoes with Cajun Gravy, Homestyle Mac & Cheese, and Cajun Fries

Popeyes is providing five pieces of crispy chicken for $6.99 and a new dessert to celebrate the return of Cajun Rice (previously "Rice

Dressing"). The Strawberry Cheesecake Fried Pie will have a deep-fried exterior and creamy cheesecake and graham cracker filling. It will cost $1.99
