Sean Compared Popeyes Chicken Sandwich to Others and the Winner Was Clear
Confession: What I actually did was purchase a Chick Fil A sandwich and then take it into a Popeyes. I wanted to try both side by side. There's been so much hype surrounding the new sandwich from Popeyes, but how good could it be?
Well, turns out it's not good.. it's great. The Popeyes sandwich packs a lot more flavor, crunch, and size. That being said, it also packs a ton of grease. It's markedly greasier than the Chick Fil A sandwich.. so much so that I wouldn't recommend eating it on the go.
And by the way -- the PR team at Popeyes all deserve a raise. Through this social media hype over the last few weeks, it's estimated the chain received what amounts to $23.5 million in free advertising. It's so crazy that in some cities police are being brought in to direct traffic at Popeyes locations.
