Popeyes and Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwiches.

Popeyes’ and Chick-Fil-A, are two large fast food chains facing off on the internet over their chicken sandwiches. It started when Popeyes responded with the menacing “y’all good?” comment on Chick-Fil-A’s tweet in which they said “Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the love for the original.” Shortly after Popeyes’ post, people were trying both sandwiches to decide — which is better.

When ordering food the first thing one notices is the presentation, if the food doesn’t look good one probably won’t eat it. In comparing Popeyes has a bigger sandwich. Their sandwich includes mayonnaise on the bun, but when finishing a sandwich one ends up eating an astounding 699 calories.

Chick-Fil-A on the other hand is less greasy. When adding up all the ingredients Chick-Fil-A’s sandwich comes in at a healthier 440 calories. 

When it comes to taste a Popeyes sandwich is far more flavorful but harder to eat because it is so large. The Popeyes sandwich even has a spicy version for all of the hot food lovers.

Chick-Fil-A’s sandwich is also very good but when biting into the chicken it feels like Popeyes is definitely superior. The need for a dressing is also very noticeable, even mayonnaise like in the Popeyes sandwich will help.

To settle the debate Popeyes took the victory over who has the better chicken sandwich, their cockiness proved them right and in the end one has to ask Chick-Fil-A “y’all good?”
