Noting that beignets can be messy and the powdered sugar can go everywhere, Popeyes also is launching limited-edition“Beignet Camo” hoodies to “camouflage the inevitable mess.”

The black hoodies with white splatters that look like powdered sugar will be sold at ThatLookFromPopeyes.com for $35 plus taxes, shipping and handling.

Sami Siddiqui, president ofPopeyes Louisiana Kitchen for the Americas, told USA TODAY in a statement that the chain’s culinary team is “continuously innovating” to create new menu items and seasonal desserts throughout the year.

“Popeyes is a brand with Louisiana roots, and beignets were a natural fit for our next dessert offering,”Siddiqui said, adding apple pie is always on the menu.

The dessert is a famous staple of New Orleans, where Popeyes was founded, although the chain now is headquartered in Miami.
