SAN ANTONIO - With all the buzz over Popeyes new chicken sandwich, people have been flocking to the chicken chain to try it. But with all the hype, people are reporting that Popeyes' supply isn't ready to meet the demand.
Twitter is atwitter over reports of Popeyes' restaurants running out of the sandwiches.
Popeyes launched the new sandwich more than a week ago, but the frenzy was fueled this week by a social media showdown between Popeyes and fast food rivals Chick-fil-A and Wendy's over who makes the best chicken sandwich.
The debate has fueled sales, which is typically a good thing, but not if you can't keep up.
Here are some of the top tweets about the sandwich shortage:
