It’s the question most of the internet has been debating the past week: Who has the better chicken sandwich, Chick-fil-A or Popeyes?
The fast-food chains that ruffled the first feathers in the great debate now face off in the championship round of our Chicken Sandwich Bracket.
The top seed Chick-fil-A easily took down KFC with more than 80% of the vote on Twitter. Meanwhile, chicken sandwich newcomer Popeyes vanquished Wendy’s, capturing 69% of the vote, to set up the final round we all expected.
This all started earlier this month, when Popeyes rolled out its first nationwide chicken sandwich, much to the delight of nearly all its customers.
So, who makes the best chicken sandwich? You can vote on our Twitter account, @usatodaymoney, to let your voice be heard.
Where it all started: Popeyes is launching a new fried chicken sandwich nationwide Aug. 12
Who’s the best?: Popeyes, Chick-fil-A and Wendy’s are clucking on social media
Let’s take a closer look at this matchup:
1. Chick-fil-A vs. 2. Popeyes
Breakdown: Popeyes’ chicken sandwich must be spectacular, because Twitter is filled with frustrated customers learning they’re sold out everywhere. And even if you do try to find out, good luck waiting out the lines.
But is it enough to topple chicken sandwich titan Chick-fil-A, which has been selling chicken sandwiches for 55 years?
