Popeye and Chick-fil-A are suddenly and unexpectedly decorated with chicken feud.
The two franchises traditionally sell relatively different rates. Popeyes focuses on Cajun influenced chicken with a focus on fried chicken pieces, and Chick-fil-A is famous for sandwiches and bids. It changed last week when Popeyes launched a new chicken sandwich, available in classic and spicy versions.
Popeyes took the time to participate in a strangely fascinating Twitter exchange with rival Chick-fil-A, but the sandwich was so new that the company didn't add it to the menu on the website for at least a week.

As a dedicated Chick-fil-A fan, I tend to have lunch more than once a week, and I usually enjoy spicy chicken sandwiches or Chick-n-Strips.
But for convenience or despite a strange dislike of the name, I never passed the door. But when Irene Jiang of Business Insider talked about how much better a new sandwich would be compared to Chick-fil-A's old atmosphere, I had to taste it myself.
I took a different approach instead of comparing two sandwiches. I wanted to know what the overall dining experience at Popeyes is and how it compares to the familiar Chick-fil-A eating experience.
