Popeye’s has caused quite a frenzy lately with their brand new chicken sandwiches that pretty much broke the internet.
It’s also been a meme lately, with the sandwich’s popularity causing some restaurants to become completely overwhelmed with orders.
It looks like the frenzy has finally reached a breaking point — the chain has literally sold out of sandwiches.
Don’t fret — the chain let its patrons know that they will be back with the sandwiches very soon.
“Y’all. We love that you love The Sandwich. Unfortunately we’re sold out (for now),” the tweet read.

The supplies are expected to last throughout the week, CNBC reports. However, the announcement was enough to send fans of the dish crazy. See what they had to say on Twitter about the news below.
Popeye’s: Guys we’re out of chicken sandwiches.
Chick-fil-A: It’s our pleasure to still serve you chicken sandwiches.
Burger King: We will literally give you a chicken sandwich for free.

As previously mentioned, Popeye’s has been in a hilarious Twitter war with nearly every fast-food chain in existence.
First, Popeye’s posted a tantalizing tweet describing the new sandwiches.
“Chicken. Brioche. Pickles. New. Sandwich. Popeyes. Nationwide. So. Good. Forgot. How. Speak. In. Complete. Sandwiches. I mean, sentences,” it read.

Then, Chick-fil-A seemed to subtweet Popeye’s, bragging about their “original” sandwich.

Popeye’s saw this, and couldn’t help but respond.

Then, Wendy’s got involved, bragging about their own sandwich.

Zaxby’s even retweeted some saying their sandwich was the best which was definitely a more subtle diss.
The Zaxbys chicken sandwich is underrated tho

Shake Shack also promoted their chicken sandwich “with no beef” to attempt to stay neutral in the war.

One of the most hilarious brand tweets is from Bojangle’s, who deleted their post bragging about their own chicken sandwich.
