Chick-fil-A or Popeye’s chicken sandwich???
The fast-food chain appears to be in a social media feud with Popeyes over their competing chicken sandwiches. Both sandwiches are similar and they both offer fried chicken and pickles.
Popeyes introduced its sandwich only recently, on Aug. 12. It features a buttermilk battered and hand-breaded chicken filet on a toasted brioche bun and is topped with pickles and either mayo or spicy Cajun spread.
The Chick-fil-A Chicken sandwich comes on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. The restaurant claims it’s the original chicken sandwich of its kind and dates back to the early 1960s.
With that in mind, Chick-fil-A tweeted out a message which, based on the timing, was seemingly directed at Popeyes. The tweet said, “Bun + Chicken _ Pickles = all the (love) for the original.”
Popeyes then responded to the tweet with a simple, “… y’all good?”
Fans on social media immediately began choosing sides, although it seemed that most were just amused by the possible beef between the two restaurants. Fans of Popeyes seemed to prefer the seasoning, while Chick-fil-A fans praised the restaurant’s famous sauce. Check out the tweets on our Instagram below:
