    Popeyes Introduced A New "Girl Dinner" Meal, And I Love That It's Literally Just All Sides

    "Popeyes having a girl dinner section on their menu is hysterical bc this is exactly what I would order for dinner. Just sides and biscuits."

    If you've ever voluntarily skipped cooking and instead settled for a random assortment of leftovers or relied on cute snacks to get you through the night, then you have indulged in what has now been referred to as "girl dinner."

    Having originated on TikTok when user Olivia Maher dubbed a few pieces of bread, cheese, and grapes her "girl dinner," the trend was later popularized by user Karma Carr with a catchy tune, and now people are sharing images of their girl dinners left and right.

    Most recently, Popeyes decided to keep up with the trend by introducing their own version of a girl dinner meal, including mac and cheese, cajun fries, mashed potatoes, red beans and rice, coleslaw, and two biscuits.

    The meal option immediately went viral — mostly because people thought it was hilarious that the girl dinner only consisted of sides, which is right on theme.

    And a lot of people were low-key interested.

    Orders have already been placed.

    However, not everyone was impressed. One person reacted by tweeting, "Popeyes lost me with that girl dinner cuz who tf coming to Popeyes and leaving with no chicken?"

    Women LOVE chicken, many expressed.

    Like, they are nothing without a good wing.

    And besides the lack of meat, some balked at the idea of eating two Popeyes biscuits, which are admittedly delicious but also notoriously mouth-drying.

    All in all, I'd say the girl dinner option is pretty viable, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't include options I usually order a la carte anyway. Either way, though, KFC has 24 hours to respond with a corresponding "boy dinner."
