The holidays will look a little different than usual during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but you probably still want to get your Thanksgiving turkey fix. Whether you’re cooking a solo feast for a virtual celebration or having a get-together with your household, Popeyes’ fan-favorite Cajun Style Turkey is a great option if you don’t want to spend all day tending to the bird. If you want to get a no-stress main dish, here’s how to order Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of Oct. 19, big family gatherings are still risky as Thanksgiving approaches. But rather than skipping dinner altogether, you could opt for a ready-made turkey, and this one from Popeyes is described as a delicious "hand-rubbed" turkey "infused with zesty Louisiana-style seasonings." Plus, it’s pre-cooked so all you need to do is purchase, heat, and serve. They started rolling out for preorder in mid-October, and they will be available at participating Popeyes locations nationwide.
Interested? Here's how to order Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey so you can make your Thanksgiving effortless:
1. Locate a Popeyes location near you.
The first step to ordering a Cajun Style Turkey is finding out if your local Popeyes has them available. You can call or visit the location to check on whether or not it will be carrying the limited-time offering.
2. Buy a turkey as soon as possible.
It's possible that a Popeyes near you already has Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkeys in store. If they do, you can purchase one right away and take it home. According to a Popeyes rep, these turkeys are set to weigh anywhere from 13 to 16 pounds when cooked, and prices will start at $39.99.
3. Preorder a turkey if your location hasn't stocked them yet.
If the Popeyes’ Cajun Style Turkey isn’t available to take home from your location yet, the chain suggests preordering it ASAP since they tend to sell out fast. If you have a local Popeyes location selling the birds, you can call or walk in to preorder your turkey. Then, you'll be able to pick up your turkey on a future date or schedule a specific date for pickup. You don’t need to pay upfront on the day you preorder if you’d rather wait to pay upon pickup.
This isn't the first Thanksgiving season that Popeyes has released its Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey for customers. It was first seen during Thanksgiving 2018, and it came back last year; thankfully it's back for another year of easy dinner prep.
When you go to pick up your Popeyes’ Cajun Style Turkey, make sure you remember to follow the coronavirus safety recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of Sept. 11. When you go out, wear a cloth face covering, practice social distancing where possible, and wash your hands after leaving the store and handling your to-go packaging.
If you think you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, which include fever, shortness of breath, and cough, call your doctor before going to get tested. If you’re anxious about the virus’s spread in your community, visit the CDC for up-to-date information and resources, or seek out mental health support.
