2019 will forever go down in history as the year of the chicken sandwich. Popeyes blew away every other fast food chain with the debut of its delectable chicken sandwich, a product it started developing way back in 2016. The result was buttery, salty, pickle-filled perfection and the world of chicken sandwiches -- and social media -- was forever changed.
Fast forward to now -- only a few months later -- and everything chicken sandwich mania has settled down a bit. Popeyes' chicken sandwich is officially back without plans to exit the menu anytime soon, Chick-fil-A has agreed to stop funding anti-LGBTQ charities, and McDonald's is working on bringing a traditional chicken sandwich to its menu. All is well. To celebrate this time of prosperity, why not don a Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Ugly Christmas Sweater?
Popeyes' ugly Christmas sweater, which features the sensational sandwich, was created in a partnership with UglyChristmasSweater.com, according to a spokesperson for the chain. In addition to rows of the crunchy fried chicken sandwiches, the sweater is decorated with snowflakes and Christmas trees. It's both festive and hunger-inducing.
You can wrap up the year of the chicken sandwich in this cozy sweater by ordering one here for $44.96, or get it for that friend who waited two hours to eat the sandwich when it first launched -- and told everyone firmly that it was worth it.
