Years after launching the Chicken Sandwich Wars with its very first chicken sandwich, Popeyes is once again trying to turn the tide. On Tuesday, the national chain unveiled the latest addition to its sandwich lineup. Following on from the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, fans of the chicken spot can now get the Blackened Chicken Sandwich, a grilled sandwich with Cajun and Creole spices.
“Our Chicken Sandwich changed the QSR industry in 2019 and since then we have continued to innovate within the category to give our guests what they want – even more Chicken Sandwich options,” said Sami Siddiqui, President of Popeyes North America. in a press release. “Following the immense success of the Chicken Sandwich, we wanted to reinvent the traditional grilled chicken sandwich category with our all-new take on a non-breaded option, the Popeyes Blackened Chicken Sandwich. We are excited to have guests try this delicious new offering, and because knowing our history as a trendsetter, we feel this could fuel some copycat Blackened Chicken Sandwiches down the line.”
As of now, the sandwich is only available for a limited time and costs $4.99. The item is also about to go viral, with many on social media getting their hands on the new sando all day Tuesday; keep scrolling to see what they say.
