Popeye's Celebrates Mardi Gras with a Genius New Promotion

In a revolutionary move to celebrate Mardi Gras, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen is paying homage to its founding city with an insane new product: a beaded necklace that carries fried chicken.

To celebrate this week, the Popeye’s location at Canal Street in New Orleans is distributing the necklaces to fried chicken fans stopping by. The festive beads are threaded through a paper Popeye’s box, allowing customers to take their chicken on-the-go, while enjoying all of the festivities the French Quarter has to offer.

Needless to say, Popeye’s is flipping the script by freeing up the hands of local Louisianians and pardi-ers visiting the city alike. With maximum convenience, consumers can hop around the streets, balancing hand grenades and catching beads from balconies; all while bringing along chicken golden fried in America’s favorite blend of secret spices. To put it bluntly, they’re giving the gift of fried chicken you can wear. What more could the people ask for?
