With the HUGE success of Popeye's Chicken Sandwich and the likes of the Chicken Sandwich Giant Chick-fil-a, McDonald's has thrown it's hat in to the ring (again). On Sunday, the Golden Arches sent out a tweet that put the internet into a frenzy.

One twitter user responded to the tweet with astonishment and got this response back,

Not one, but TWO chicken sandwiches. Okay, the Deluxe is pretty much the same as the original, but still TWO SANDWICHES! McDonalds already serves chicken, in the likes of their Chicken McNuggets, McChicken Sandwich, and their Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich so what makes this one different? Well, the difference is this new sandwich is meant to be a "premium" sandwich that rivals both Popeye's and Chick-fil-a.

From 2005-2015 McDonald's did serve a Southern Style Chicken Sandwich, which at the time was meant to challenge Chick-fil-a. One thing people may notice right away is the little insulated bag that the new McDonald's sandwich is served in, thats right it looks oddly similar right?

Are you excited to give this new Sandwich a try?
