A lot of restaurants serve chicken sandwiches, especially the ones where the poultry is breaded and crispy.
Lately, this handheld goodness has become the subject of a Twitter war involving two fast-food giants: Popeyes and Chick-fil-A.
Popeyes is known mainly as a fried chicken restaurant that is a rival to Kentucky Fried Chicken, while Chick-fil-A is known for their chicken sandwiches that would put them on par with McDonald’s, Burger King, and Wendy’s.
Now, they are competiting with customers for a simple crispy chicken sandwich with the basic features: bun, pickles, sauce, and that big breaded chicken patty.
Popeyes just introduced its sandwich, and tweeted a picture of it:
Chick-fil-A would eventually tweet with what one would think would be a response to Popeyes, though it could just be a tribute to its original chicken sandwich.
Still, it has Twitter nation divided and choosing sides – #TeamPopeyes or #TeamChickFilA.
Users did take note of a potential chicken war, taking sides themselves.
Other restaurants got in on the fun as well:
So basically, Popeyes introduced a sandwich that has customers seeing a resemblance between that and Chick-fil-A’s original.
No word on whether or not the new menu item is here to stay, but Popeyes did respond to Chick-fil-A’s tweet with a simple question:
Safe to say, this war won’t be going away anytime soon.
