It's back, y'all!

Popeyes is celebrating its 50th anniversary by resurrecting the Cajun Rice side for a limited time.

The news comes after its gut-wrenching move to discontinue the beloved side last year, which reportedly resulted in thousands of tweets from customers demanding its return.

According to a news release, Popeyes "recognized the flurry of emotions it caused among disheartened fans." The Louisiana-based chicken chain knew it had to give them what they want: another taste of its flavorful spiced rice.

So, starting today, Popeyes is giving people what they want. Cajun Rice will return to menus across the country for a limited time only.

Popeyes is also marking its golden anniversary by giving customers a promotion that pays homage to the menu item that stared it all 50 years ago: five pieces of golden, crispy chicken for just $6.99.

But wait, there's more! Starting today, guests are also being treated to a sweet new dessert at restaurants. The Strawberry Cheesecake Fried Pie is a delicious strawberry fried pie filled with a creamy cheesecake and graham cracker filling.

Both the Cajun Rice and the Strawberry Cheesecake Fried Pie are now available in restaurants nationwide and for delivery through the Popeyes App or on Popeyes.com.
