TAMI WHO HAS THE BETTER CHICKEN SANDWICH? CHICK-FIL-A OR POPEYES? THAT QUESTION HAS STARTED A WAR ON SOCIAL MEDIA. SO WE GOT OUR VERY OWN KAREN HUA TO TEST THE TWO OUT. KAREN INTRO: IT’S THE BATTLE OF THE BEST CHICKEN SANDWICH. AND BAKERSFIELD HAS SOME STRONG OPINIONS. ELEESHA LEE: “I’M JUST TRYNA SEE WHAT THE HYPE IS ABOUT.” KAREN: WHEN POPEYES ROLLED OUT ITS NEW CHICKEN SANDWICH… IT STARTED A SOCIAL MEDIA FRENZY WITH CHICK-FIL-A. BOBBY KANG: “WE’RE GOING CRAZY.” KAREN: POPEYES IN BAKERSFIELD SOLD OUT WEDNESDAY – AND HAD TO RESTOCK. BOBBY KANG: “WE HAD PEOPLE COME IN AT 9:30 IN THE MORNING THEY WANTED TO TRY THE CHICKEN SANDWICH.” KAREN: BUN, CHICKEN, PICKLES, AND SAUCE… FIDEL ROMERO: “POPEYES RELEASED A NEW SANDWICH AND IT’S VERY SIMILAR TO OURS AND PEOPLE WANT TO TRY BOTH OF THEM NOW.” KAREN: BUT WHAT MAKES EACH SPECIAL? BOBBY KANG: “WE COOK IT FRESH AND TO ORDER.” FIDEL ROMERO: “WE COOK IT WITH LOVE.” KAREN: BOTH HAD LONG LINES DURING LUNCHTIME… SO WE WANTED TO TEST THEM OUT FOR OURSELVES. KAREN AT POPEYES: “CAN I PLEASE HAVE THREE CHICKEN SANDWICHES?” KAREN AT CHICK- FIL-A: “CAN I PLEASE GET THREE CLASS CHICKEN SANDWICHES?” KAREN: THE CHICK-FIL-A CLASSIC DID NOT DISAPPOINT. JESSE: “OKAY HERE WE GO.” ERICA: “CHEERS.” NICK: “I’M A BIG CHICK-FIL-A GUY SO TASTES GOOD TO ME, TEXTURE’S GREAT.” JOSE: “I LIKE THIS, VERY TRADITIONAL TASTE.” KAREN: COMPARED TO POPEYES… JESSE: “NEXT NUMBER TWO HERE WE GO” ERICA: “THESE LOOK JUICY AND MEATY.” OMAR: “LITTLE BIT THICKER AND MORE VOLUME TO IT.” JOSE: “WHAT BRINGS IT TOGETHER FOR ME IS THE BUN.” JESSE: “THIS IS CLOSE.” NICK: “I GOTTA GO POPEYES, A BIGGER PIECE OF CHICKEN.” ERICA: “THE BUN’S SWEETER TOO SO IT’S A GOOD COMBINATION OF SWEET AND SAVORY.” JESSE: “A LOT BETTER TASTE, MUCH CRISPIER SKIN, AND A FAR BETTER BUN.” KAREN: THE POPEYES SANDWICH TURNED EVEN THE MOST LOYAL CHICK-FIL-A FANS. JOSH IRWIN: “USUALLY I’LL JUST GO TO CHICK-FIL-A BUT IF THEY CHICKEN’S GOOD, THEN I’LL STICK WITH THIS ONE.” ERICA TORRES: “I’M A FAN OF CHICK-FIL-A, BUT POPEYES I THINK WAS BETTER.” ELEESHA LEE: “CHICK-FIL-A IS IN THE SAUCES, BUT POPEYES, THEIR CHICKEN IS SEASONED AND IT’S JUST LIKE MMM.” KAREN HUA, 17 NEWS. TAMI MEANTIME, WENDY’S JOINS THE FIGHT AFTER POPEYE’S COMMENTED ON CHICK-FIL-A’S POST. WENDY’S TOOK A TURN TOUTING ITS VERSION AS THE BEST. POPEYE’S WAS QUICK TO FIRE BACK — TWEETING WENDY’S MUST BE THIRSTY AFTER EATING A BISCUIT FROM THE LOUISIANA KITCHEN. IN TRUE WENDY’S FASHION — THE CHAIN HAD A QUICK WITTED RESPONSE, DOUBLING DOWN WITH A JAB — CALLING POPEYE’S FOOD AS DRY AS ITS JOKES. JIM: A DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR
