The newest Popeyes chicken tenders are identified as sweet and crunchy for a reason—they are coated with shortbread cookies. The Sweet & Crunchy Chicken Tenders are now being sold for a limited time as a $5 menu item that comes with a side, a biscuit and a Smokin' Pepper Jam sauce.
Across the food and beverage industry, consumers are looking to find sweet, salty, spicy and savory flavor notes in unexpected places, offering a new way to enjoy a favorite treat. In the case of the Sweet & Crunchy Tenders, there are plenty of textures to be enjoyed, as well as both sweet and spicy flavors.
Previously, Popeyes has experimented with enhancing its chicken dishes with sweet flavors, such as it did with its Magnolia Blossom Chicken, which included the bold, vibrant taste of a citrus orange.
