Popeyes vs. Chick-fil-A: Whose chicken sandwich is better?

I woke up this morning thinking about - and even smelling ... And now, it's got a new chicken sandwich. I mean thoughts ... on this Hump Day morning: Mashable and CNN.

Popeyes released a new chicken sandwich at the beginning of August, and while the new menu item was an instant hit, Chick-fil-A apparently felt that this town wasn't big enough for two chicken sandwiches, tweeting, "Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the ❤️ for the original".

Beloved fast-food fried-chicken chain Popeyes, founded in a New Orleans suburb, is known for its Cajun-seasoned chicken, sides like red beans and rice and mashed potatoes and gravy, and catchy jingle from musician Dr. John.

Popeyes quickly responded to Chick-fil-A's claim, sparking an all-out chicken sandwich social war between multiple chains. Also entering the feisty fryer: Boston Market and Shake Shack (a favorite spot, for many reasons, in my previous home of Las Vegas, baby).

Mashable goes so far as to even declare a victor (and calls out Chick-fil-A for its homophobia).
