Why the Popeyes chicken sandwich?

Us Brits don’t quite understand the hysteria. Sure, it looks yummy but why this sandwich in particular?

We can trace this back to the summer of 2019. Famous chicken chain Popeyes released their chicken sandwich last August and the USA went crazy for it.

The Popeyes chicken sandwich sold out nationwide, with some branches out of stock until November of the same year.

The much sought after bite is comprised of a fried chicken breast, topped with pickles and either mayo or special cajun sauce, all squeezed together in a brioche bun.

Fair enough, it sounds delicious.
