We all remember when Popeyes broke the internet in 2019 and caused foodies to lose their minds over the original chicken sandwich. The hype led many locations to sell thousands of chicken sandwiches within the first night of its launch, while other Popeyes locations saw their share of violence over the popular menu item. And it appears hysteria may very well go into overdrive with the news of Popeyes' buffalo ranch chicken sandwich hitting the menu.
