It’s a battle of the chicken sandwiches.
A week after Popeyes first nationwide chicken sandwich was released, the fast-food chain started a Twitter feud with chicken competitor Chick-fil-A.
On Monday, Chick-fil-A, which launched a new item of its own last week with its Mac & Cheese, tweeted: ” Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the (heart emoji) for the original.”
Popeyes retweeted the tweet and wrote “… y’all good?”
The Twitterverse was a flurry with some saying they preferred Popeyes’ new sandwich to Chick-fil-A’s, which is best known for its chicken sandwiches and has been voted as America’s favorite fast-food chain in surveys.
Boston Market got in on the Twitter shade too by tweeting about Chick-fil-A’s macaroni and cheese.
