The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Price has rushed to a premature end. And if you didn’t have the ability to get your hands on one when the mania was at its peak – perhaps you were waiting for the lines to die down? – well, sorry to say, you missed the delicious-fried-chicken boat. In the meantime, anyway.
“Y’all. We like that you simply love The Sandwich. Unfortunately we’re sold out (for the time being),” Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen announced on its official Twitter feed along with a video documenting the hype, the long lines and also the love wrought by the introduction of its new sandwich.
Given the excitement engendered from the sandwich, which had been introduced nationwide on August 12 and projected to become offered from the end of September, it’s small wonder it out of stock. Social media marketing went nuts for the sandwich. And also the conventional media portrayed it as nothing under a savior, the salve our country needs for its current troubles.
“The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Has Arrived in order to save America,” declared a headline inside the New Yorker.
“A simple sandwich is never just a basic sandwich,” wrote Devra First within the Boston Globe, noting that “African-American Twitter users” had been instrumental in creating the buzz across the sandwich. “It’s a mirror of culture. That one reflects how ours is shaped and disseminated, and who gets elided within the narrative about taste-making and influence.”
First added: “There are so few communal experiences we now have left. We aren’t a religious nation the way we once were. We aren’t all watching ‘Dallas’ together on CBS. But something as prosaic as being a chicken sandwich can still bring us together – inside our search for a thing that satisfies, inside our common desires. Many of us are hungry. Most of us face a hard road ahead.”
Yeah, that is kind of a great deal to load onto something as humble being a chicken sandwich. But if ever a chicken sandwich was worthy of such immoderate praise, the Popeyes chicken sandwich could it be.
I were able to get my on the job a few sandwiches (one “classic,” one “spicy”) earlier this week, standing in line using a diverse group of people (black, white, old and young) late one evening with a Popeyes on the busy Brooklyn corner.
The classic sandwich was, great. The spicy one seriously approached the divine – an ideal intersection of tender and crunchy, salt as well as heat, with a hint of sweet (the brioche) and a tang of sour (the pickle).
But fear not, all that you who missed out. Popeyes said within an announcement it was “working tirelessly” to get the sandwich back on menus pursuing the “extraordinary demand” that exhausted supplies. The chain encourages those who wish uxttmu be among the first to know when the chicken sandwich does return – once and for all, they say — to sign up for push notifications
