Popeyes recently delighted us with one of the best fish sandwiches in fast food, and there are now even more reasons to stop by the drive-thru. The chain is bringing back a popular deal on seafood that makes an appearance only once a year, as well as a fan-favorite seasonal dessert—and they're both available on menus right now.

The $5 Butterfly Shrimp Tackle Box is back at participating locations nationwide. This sweet deal consists of eight butterfly shrimp paired with your choice of one regular side, a biscuit, and dipping sauce. Some locations will even have a Butterfly Shrimp Surf 'n Turf Tackle Box, which gets you four shrimp and two chicken tenders for the same price.

To round out your Tackle Box, you can once again sink your sweet tooth into the Strawberry and Cream Cheese Pie. First introduced to the menu in 2013, this dessert has made a seasonal appearance every year since. A Strawberry and Cream Cheese Pie is basically the same deep-fried, turnover-style shell that the chain uses for its apple pie, except it's filled with layers of strawberry purée and real cream cheese.

Popeyes has been making tweaks to its menu all year, and we've reported on the 4 Major Menu Changes You'll See there. You also won't want to miss some of the chain's best secret menu items, which require a little bit of insider knowledge while ordering (but are so worth the trouble)!
