I guess Popeye's new chicken sandwich is now available nationwide. We've had it here in the STL for upwards of six months. We get a lot of fast food menu items early here, because this town has a disproportionate number of, shall we say, fast food enthusiasts.
I've only had it twice, but not for lack of trying. The last three times I tried to get one, I was told that they couldn't sell me one, because they were frozen. It happened to me a couple of times late in the evening, but I've also had it happen to me during the day.
One of the restaurants near me has also been very adamant about the fact that you can't pay with cash, only debit cards. One time I asked why, and the young hoodrat working the register said it was because they didn't have any change. I guess they won't be getting any change ever again?
The two times I was able to get them to take my $4, it was magnificent. Popeye's new chicken sandwich is ginormous, for what they charge for it. I guess it costs four times as much as a chicken sandwich at McDonald's, but it's damn near four times as much meat. Nullus.
Plus, it's not flavorless. It's spicy enough that a child might cry if you forced them to eat it, which should be the criteria for whether or not a fast food menu item can be called spicy (few things would qualify). In addition to whatever they put on the chicken, there's some sort of spicy mayonnaise substance that ratchets up the excitement factor several notches.
I might never eat another Popeye's chicken sandwich again, because I'm tired of their shit, but if you're the kind of suspect individual who doesn't eat burgers, you might want to have a look.
