The fried chicken sandwiches sold so quickly after they debuted on the mainland in August that Popeyes ran out, and started sales earlier this month. Today is the first time they have been sold in Hawaii.
The sandwiches cost $ 6 and come in two flavors, one with a spicy Cajun sauce and one without.
