    Popeyes Locations Are Actually Running Out Of Chicken Sandwiches And People Are Kind Of Panicking

    "We are sold out of chicken sandwiches."

    In case you hadn't heard, Popeyes recently released a chicken sandwich. And in the very short time it's been around, there's been A LOT of hype.

    Twitter: @PopeyesChicken

    The announcement came on Aug. 12, fwiw.

    And now people are actually having trouble finding the new chicken sandwich at their nearest Popeyes locations — like, people have literally been calling to ask if they're in stock...

    Attn Los Angeles Twitter 🚨⚠️ I just got off the phone with Popeyes and the la brea/centinela location will debut the sammich on Monday (8/19) and all of the stores should have it by September. You're welcome 🙃

    ...and relying on word of mouth, too:

    Hey, Los Angeles!! According to @Charleszyy - @PopeyesChicken in north hollywood 11011 Victory Blvd has the chicken sandwich!!

    It's now gotten to the point where many Popeyes locations are having to put up signs to let people know they have actually sold out of chicken sandwiches:
