Popeyes Ends the ‘Chicken Wars’ By Buying 1 Million of Its Competitors’ Nuggets

News of Popeyes debuting their own chicken nuggets spread like wildfire earlier this month, with many speculating that they would be the bite-sized equivalent of the chain’s now legendary chicken sandwich. And such speculation leading to excitement is valid, considering that Popeyes’ chicken sandwich was the catalyst to the much hyped Chicken Wars, also know as the Chicken Sandwich Wars.

In a brilliant stroke of petty and to promote the new chicken nuggets, Popeyes has purchased the equivalent of one million nuggets from competitors like Chick-fil-A, Burger King, Wendy’s, and McDonald’s through their Popeyes Foundation, and will be donating their nuggets to Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana.

Fans can get in on the petty party too, with Popeyes pledging to match up to $25,000 in donations from the Popeyes Foundation website.
