Popeyes Versus Chick-Fil-A

Over on Twitter, Popeyes shot down Chick-Fil-A’s chicken sandwich with a tweet that said: “…ya’ll good?”. The feud between Popeyes and Chick-Fil-A all started on August 19, 2019, when Chick-Fil-A shared a photo on twitter with the caption, “Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the love for the original”. Popeyes immediately came for Chick-Fil-A, as they just released their very own chicken sandwich in the 13th of the same month. However, the real question is: Which chicken sandwich is better?

With all of the buzz that the twitter feud started, Popeyes has gained a lot more recognition and people have been dying to try their new chicken sandwich. With all of this buzz around Popeyes, waiting in line to get a chicken sandwich “can take anywhere from one hour to several hours” senior, James Barker said. The workers sure are busy making all of the sandwiches and getting them out to a ton of people makes it hard to work fast enough.

However, once you finally get your hands on the sandwich, Nick Smith (12) said, “the sandwich is seasoned in such a unique way that Chick-Fil-A’s isn’t”. Making the wait ultimately worth it. The crispness of the chicken paired with the soft bun makes all of the buzz around the sandwich worth it. 

When asked who’s sandwich they preferred, junior Katy Williams said, “I’ve always been a huge fan of Chick-Fil-A and I think they’re chicken is really hard to beat, but Popeyes was something entirely new.” While it’s true that Chick-Fil-A has its own signature style of chicken, it’s no doubt that Popeyes blew it out of the water with this one. 

All in all, Chick-Fil-A and Popeyes both have their own signature chicken sandwiches that are amazing in their own ways. The two are entirely different, but the feud over on Twitter between the two fast-food restaurants was a good laugh!
