Popeyes Chicken Sandwich: Chain announces official return date for sold out item
Have you heard the word? Popeye's highly anticipated (and ridiculous and sexy) chicken sandwich, which sold out just two weeks after its debut, is officially back in stores in early November.
3. November to be exact.
POPEYES TEASES & # 39; BRING YOUR BUN & # 39; CAMPAIGN, SUGGESTED CUSTOMERS MAKE YOUR OWN SANDWICHES
Popeyes & # 39; a press release confirming the news was as simple as the chicken sandwich itself, and contained just two words: "I'm back."
Franchise owners had their hands on the sandwich comeback last week, but the fast-food chain only confirmed the nationwide return in the press release on Monday. Popeyes also debuted with an ad for the sandwich's return aimed at the now-rival Chick-fil-A, and the unavailability of their chicken sandwiches on Sundays.
Sandwich, which most fast-foodies are very aware of. This item was released in August and sold out two weeks later. It was then removed from menus across the nation while fans waited for the chain to announce a return date.

During that time, the sandwich triggered a Twitter bull between Chick-fil ̵[ads1]1; A – which Popeyes appears to be pulling out, according to his new marketing campaign – as well as an intense "Chicken War" that eventually grew to involve Buffalo Wild Wings and Wendy's.

For those unfamiliar, sandwiches in the center of this controversy feature a breaded chicken fillet on a brioche bun, with pickles and either mayo or spicy Cajun spread.
And it may (perhaps) be yours that says November 3 – because if history tells us something, you may want to get there sooner rather than later.
