Move over, spicy chicken sandwiches, Popeyes has a new Thanksgiving turkey available that could make your Thanksgiving easier than ever.
If you’re the type that enjoys cooking on Thanksgiving, then you probably find it strange that anyone would buy a pre-cooked turkey from Popeyes of all places. But for people who need that extra bit of time, however, this could be a tasty lifesaver.
All you have to do to order the bird from Popeyes is call or visit your local restaurant and let them know you want a Thanksgiving turkey. The roughly 15-pound turkey is $39.99, and you can pre-order it well ahead of Thanksgiving Day.
If you’re the type of person who wants more time to watch the parade or spend time with family and less time cooking, then this is a great route for you to go.
You might have noticed that Popeyes has been in the headlines a lot recently with their chicken sandwich. The viral sensation caused quite a stir when it was released, and has been going toe-to-toe with rival chicken chain, Chick-Fil-A. So, is this Thanksgiving turkey thing trying to cash in on the brand’s sudden popularity?
No, not exactly. This isn’t the first year Popeyes has offered this Thanksgiving special: it’s been a big part of their holiday sales for the past several years. However, this year, the promotion may be more popular than ever. After all, the throngs of people lining up to buy the chicken sandwich likely all saw the posters for the Thanksgiving turkey!
According to taste testers, yes, the turkey is actually pretty good. The skin has a lot of Popeyes signature spices to give it a lot of zest. The meat is, apparently, quite flavorful and well-seasoned, making the normally bland-tasting turkey into a home for lots of big flavor.
Some have commented that it can be a touch dry, but this could owe to how you heat it back up at your home. One thing’s for certain, though: if you’re in the market for a big, spicy turkey for Thanksgiving, Popeyes has got you covered.
