The war that consumed our Hot Chicken Summer has been re-ignited by Popeyes recent announcement of the return of their chicken sandwich.

As soon as Popeyes' new chicken sandwich hit stores on August 12, the internet was set ablaze with hilarious memes, videos, and other social media posts comparing the new sandwich to Chick-Fil-A's own staple menu item. But Popeyes' sandwich is finally making a comeback and they are serving it with a side of some serious shade!

See Popeyes New Video Announcing The Return Date Of Their Viral Chicken Sandwich:

Popeyes' chicken sandwich will return this Sunday (Nov 3)! With their announcement, they had no issue shading Chick-Fil-A over the fact that they aren't open on Sundays. Popeyes is definitely trying to remind Chick-Fil-A that they don't want no smoke when it comes to this ongoing chicken sandwich war.

Before Popeyes' chicken sandwich sold out in just two weeks, the two chicken chains went back and forth on social media and tried to prove who had the better sandwich. All while people across the nation scrambled to even find a Popeyes near them that had the sandwich in stock. We recently learned that Oprah Winfrey herself was one of those people!

We know we aren't the only ones anticipating Chick-Fil-A's scathing response! In the meantime, we (and Oprah) are hoping we can get our hands on that Popeyes chicken sandwich the second time around.
