  • Fans choose sides in the 'Chicken Sandwich War' of our time

Their spicy chicken sandwich has sold out at many locations, which has triggered brawls at many restaurants, and one angry customer climbed through a drive-in window after a location ran out of the sandwiches (see video below).

What sets this beauty apart from a Popeyes or Chick-fil-a sandwich-aside from, you know, the improved flavor you get from honest, organic, hard-earned meat-is that it's easy to get. Then Chick-fil-A saw Popeyes having its moment and came clucking in with some insecure heat about being "the original", which, honey, um, no. Reports are coming in that Popeyes has been selling out of the new sandwich at locations nationwide - a phenomenon that's becoming newsworthy in its own right. As The Takeout wrote, both Alex Holley of Philadelphia's Fox 29 and Daralene Jones of Orlando's WFTV tweeted photos of signs at Popeyes proclaiming that no more sandwiches were available. Meanwhile, Shake Shack threw some shade from the sidelines, offering a chicken sandwich "without the beef", and I don't even remember anyone asking her. And is Popeyes working to address the issue?

Over the past week, people have been going wild on social media about the sandwich, prompting the Chick Fil A vs. Popeyes debate.
