  1. I tried redstick chicken once almost by mistake. Now, it is the only Popeye’s I will eat. It is so obviously superior to any other fried chicken that it is ridiculous.
    Please bring this chicken into your regular menu.

  2. This was only supposed to be available until April 26th but i got it on May 21st for the first time and it became my new favorite chicken. Went back on the 24th and was told they bo longer have it. They only had it for a month! Just great. Now i can’t get it. Guess it’s back to popcorn chicken at KFC!
