$32 Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Order Made with Generic White Bread Leaves Customer Stunned
A Popeyes customer was shocked to see that employees made her chicken sandwich with white bread instead of its standard bun.
Remember when everyone and their mother was going nuts trying to get Popeyes' chicken sandwiches? So much so that workers were having mental breakdowns trying to fulfill all of the customer orders that wouldn't stop rolling into their stores and customers were freaking out about not being able to get one?
Well, the insanity around these sandwiches has subsided and they're no longer seen as some "gotta try before you die" food item: just a yummy sandwich that you could get in a drive-thru at a popular chain.
But one customer's Popeyes chicken sandwich experience was less than stellar as the location she visited must've ran out of the buns they usually sandwich the fried chicken breast in.
In case you've never seen what Popeyes' chicken sandwich is supposed to look like, here's what the brand usually sells to its customers:
Instagram user @vlivequis3 was shocked to see that her sandwich, upon removing it from her package, was made with two slices of white bread.
Here's what she ended up with instead of the aforementioned photo:
While this kind of concession could probably be understandable during the original hype of the menu item due to limited supplies of ingredients spurred on by the fervor of folks ransacking stores to get their hands on one, today, it seems like a bit of a tougher pill to swallow.
She writes in a text overlay of the video: "'I'm too hungry to even go back and get a refund .. 32 for this b---!!!"
The Instagram user says in the video: "Popeyes on f---- 31st...y'all got me...let me see the rest of these chicken sandwiches."
She looks into the Popeye's bag while holding the chicken sandwich between the two pieces of white bread. "They got me f----- up."
Different users on the platform had varying thoughts on her white bread chicken sandwich. There were some who didn't think it was that big of a deal: "Take it back?… the bread look soft… chicken fried right. I know that corner piece gone take you out"
Even @vilvequis3 seemed to resign herself to the idea that she was going to make the sandwich situation ultimately work out: "Betta throw some hot sauce on the Bad Boy & Call it a day"
There were some who thought that it actually ended up looking better than the original one that the franchise sells: "Why that look better then the original tho"
While someone else had a similar question: "Why that look good"
But there were others who worried about the structural integrity of the white bread sandwich: "That s--- about to be stuck to the roof of her mouth"
And there were others who thought that if they Popeyes was going to serve it up to her on some slices of bread that looked like they could be purchased at any deli or grocery store, the least that they could do is toast it up a bit: "Could’ve at least toasted the bread"
How would you feel if you went to get a chicken sandwich and someone slapped it on some Sunbeam bread instead of the bun it's supposed to come on? Would you mind? Or are you buying it just for the fat fried chicken piece in the middle anyway, so you wouldn't care?
