Shield your eyes, because these wings might blind you with their bling-bling.

To honor the grand opening of its 3,000th restaurant, fried chicken chain Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is bringing precious metal to the masses in the form of gold-covered, fried chicken wings.

The wings, which will be available in limited quantities on October 4th, are dunked in a champagne batter before being deep fried and tossed in 24-karat gold flakes.

Sound like they’re going to cost you an arm and a leg? Check your ears, because the six wings (plus a biscuit and choice of side dish) will only cost a recommended $5.

Unfortunately, the offer is only occurring at the following locations: 868 C E Grand Street in Elizabeth, NJ; 75 Lexington Ave in New York City; 621 Canal St in New Orleans; and 1005 North Magnolia Blvd in Anaheim, CA.

If you’re lucky enough, you might just get to be one of the few who has gold flowing through your digestive tract. Bon appétit!
