    12 Wild And Hilarious Reactions To Popeyes's New "Bring Your Own Bun" Policy

    This is wild.

    Remember those Popeyes chicken sandwiches that everyone went crazy for, which eventually caused the restaurant to run out of buns nationwide?

    Well, this week, the fast food chain came up with a solution for the crisis by announcing its BYOB (also known as "Bring Your Own Bun") policy:

    Try our new BYOB! It’s basically The Sandwich! Only no mayo. Or pickles. And you bring your own bun… Really it’s just three tenders…

    Seriously, as the advertisement states, all you have to do is bring your own buns (and pickles, and mayo), order the tenders, and voilà: you'll have your very own Popeyes chicken sandwich 🥳!

    Well, not everyone was excited about this. Particularly those who felt like the solution was just a temporary fix to their cravings for the real thing:

    @PopeyesChicken Just bring the damn sandwich💔. This hurt my feelings

    The responses were wild, to say the least:

    @PopeyesChicken y’all so ugly and musty

    This person went straight for the jugular:

    @PopeyesChicken U think this is funny? Cus I think a 36% revenue decrease in the last week is funny too

    Meanwhile, others were ready to take their cash to Popeyes's competitor, Chick-fil-A:

    @PopeyesChicken Chick fila never runs out of sandwiches

    But, not all hope was lost! This user predicted customers would actually bring their own buns to experience the delicious chicken sandwich:

    @PopeyesChicken Everyone in line waiting for their chicken

    One guy even asked for specific details to get his DIY Popeyes sandwich just right:

    @PopeyesChicken Can you specify the #mayo brand, type of #pickles, and #bun you use on the sandwich so we can get as close as possible? Thank you.

    Another user pointed out that the advertisement was likely a joke, and not a real thing Popeyes would implement in stores:

    @PopeyesChicken Y’all know they’re trolling y’all ? They ain’t serious 😂😂

    We see you, Popeyes.

    @brownblaze Can’t blame us for trying? Right? Ok, we get it…

    So what do you think? Are you down to BYOB or are you willing to hold out for the original sandwiches when they inevitably return? Tell us in the comments!
