No one likes bad news but Popeyes sure did dish it out this week with their latest announcement. The popular chicken fast food chain will be removing two of its most beloved side items from their menu.
From now on, Popeyes customers will no longer be able to order Cajun Rice or Green Beans with their meals. But on the bright side, we are glad they are not removing that delicious chicken sandwich.
A company statement about the decision reads, “At Popeyes, we are always listening to feedback from our guests and looking for ways to improve our menu. So after thoughtful consideration, our Cajun Rice and Green Beans are no longer on the permanent menu. However, we still have a bunch of delicious sides.”
After the announcement, people took to Twitter to share their disappointment with the restaurant.
Wait a minute! Since when did @PopeyesChicken get rid of the Cajun rice?!!! Like wtf!— 😘 (@prettykilla) January 27, 2021
Why did Popeyes stop serving Cajun rice? We need to start a petition or something because this is too much…. 😭— 👑 Brianna Nicole 👑 (@MsBri256) January 29, 2021
