(WWBT) - The best chicken sandwich debate has heated up!
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen announced the release of their new chicken sandwich last week, sending the Internet into overdrive.
The sandwich features the chain’s New Orleans-style fried chicken on a brioche bun paired with pickles.
Customers have two options to choose from: Original and spicy. The original comes with classic mayo, while the spicy features a Cajun spread.
Many customers quickly compared the sandwich to Chick-fil-A’s Chicken Sandwich, which features a boneless chicken breast on a buttered bun with dill pickle chips.
Chick-fil-A subtly took to Twitter to solidify themselves as the self-proclaimed “original.”
Popeyes quickly responded to Chick-fil-A’s claim, sparking an all-out chicken sandwich social war between multiple chains.
Wendy’s, Zaxby’s, Shake Shack and several other fast-food restaurants joined the social media war.
Despite varying opinions on the best sandwich, the social media war is fun for all!
