It looks like 2023 will be just as spicy as the last couple of years. You’ve probably seen practically every restaurant out there offer a spicy this or that – and Popeye’s January news confirms this will probably be back again the year.

After a three year absence according to the Food Network, the twelve hour marinated wings are back, five bucks will apparently score you an order. The wings are marinated in a ghost pepper spice blend then battered by hand, server with buttermilk ranch on the side in case they get a little too hot!

Joining them will be the return of the Blueberry Lemon Pie and a Strawberry Cheesecake cup – just inc are you need further help taming those fiery wings. Right now the brand are also offering dollar wing deals on orders through their app and website,
