Popeyes: Just make your own chicken sandwiches

There she

As the nationwide shortage of Popeyes' virally famous chicken sandwich continues, the fast-food chain has a novel suggestion to keep the masses fed amid this crisis: invite diners to make a hacked version of "The Sandwich" using Popeyes' chicken tenders. and their own buns.

'Sandwich assembly not included, ' Popeyes said in their Twitter video.

So head on out to a supermarket, then go get your chicken!

Unfortunately, Popeyes is not actually selling the proper fried chicken patty.

On Thursday, the company tweeted that customers can "bring their own bun" and try to replicate the absentee sandwich. It's basically The Sandwich! And you bring your own bun...

Consequently, Popeye's sandwich was so popular that they sold out of their inventory, which was supposed to last until the end of September, within two weeks. While it won't have any of the other fixings like mayo and pickles, it's still technically a chicken sandwich. Clearly the company is having fun with the fact that customers are anxiously waiting for the return of the sandwich.

While the tweet was most likely just a joke, it caused a lot of stir online with people who thought it was both amusing and patronizing, because all everyone wants is for the damn sandwich to be back on the menu already. "We, along with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible".
