The Spicy Chicken Sandwich at Popeye’s is Coming Back
The frenzy-causing chicken sandwich that even inspired a "sexy" Halloween costume will be back according to Popeye's.
The fast-food chain released its Spicy Chicken Sandwich this past summer and was an instant hit. People were lining up for hours just to try it and within a couple of weeks, they completely sold out of ingredients. Thankfully, though, Popeye's announced that the sandwich nobody could get enough of is back on the menu this Sunday... and for good this time.
Not only is November 3rd National Sandwich Day but Sundays is also when its rival Chick-fil-A is closed. Well played, Popeye's.
In a report from CNBC, Popeye's was selling about 1,000 sandwiches per day before they sold out.
According to the website, the sandwich is described as
A tender all-white meat chicken breast fillet, marinated in an authentic blend of Louisiana seasonings, then hand battered and breaded in our all new buttermilk coating. Served with crisp barrel cured pickles and Classic or Spicy Mayonnaise, served on a warm and toasted buttery brioche bun.
