Food Wars: Winner, Winner, Kaleece’s Elusive Chicken Sandwich Dinner

Starting early August, recent social media has been causing a big inflation in Popeyes new chicken sandwich that was just added to their menu. The chicken sandwich started to sell very quickly once word got spread nationwide throughout all social media platforms, especially on Twitter. Then competition started to arise. The discussion on if Chick-fil-A or Popeyes has the better chicken sandwich became prominent.

 Social media took off and took over. People immediately started to compare the two and contradiction was started. So I decided to put all the controversy to the test myself. 

I personally have tried the spicy and regular chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-A multiple times before. Chick-fil-A’s waiting lines is normally about a fifteen minute wait. As opposed to there normal wait, I was able to go through the drive through within five minutes. It seems as though Chick-fil-A has lost some of their business from all the talk of Popeyes new sandwich.

 Chick-fil-A’s spicy chicken sandwich is a decently sized spicy patty with a soft circular bun. The chicken patty itself is what makes the sandwich spicy. I myself had to choose a sauce to eat along with the sandwich, in contrast to Popeyes whose sandwich already comes along with a spicy sauce on the sandwich.

 The sandwich alone was only about three dollars, which is not expensive at all. I enjoyed the chicken sandwich and loved the fast service I received. Their employers treat their customers with nothing but elite service. 

Although I wish the spicy sandwich came with a spicy sauce instead of patty. I very much enjoyed the fast and great customer service I received.  I would rate my overall experience a nine out of ten and will for sure be going back to Chick-fil-A for more chicken sandwiches.  

Popeyes has been trying to keep up with all the recent business they have been acquiring. They seem to be struggling with doing so and have stores that have been sold out for weeks now. People all across the United States are not taking this sellout well. There have been reports all across the news and social media stating and showing all the frustration this chicken sandwich has caused for Popeyes business. There have been multiple allegations of customers fighting with employees out of frustration due to the lack of supply of chicken sandwiches.

 Although Popeyes business is booming currently, lack of supply gives their company a bad reputation. 

There have been rumors discussing the possibility of discontinuation of the chicken sandwiches for a temporary time limit. I, as a customer that still has yet to try the sandwich, hope that the discontinuation does not happen. The sandwich is described as a big fluffy chicken sandwich on a buttery bun. The patty itself on the spicy sandwich is in fact not spicy, it is actually the sauce on the sandwich that gives the spicy flavor.

 The sandwich alone prices at about four dollars. So Popeyes sandwich is a little more expensive in comparison to Chick-fil-A’s. 

Due to popeyes lack of supply of the chicken sandwiches, I would say that Chick-fil-A is the definite winner. Chick-fil-A has outstanding customer service and has yet to run out of their chicken sandwiches. Their prices are also cheaper than Popeyes. Until I get the chance to finally try Popeyes chicken sandwich, Chick-fil-A will always be the winner in my mind.
