We have big news coming out of the front lines of the chicken sandwich wars. Burger King has taken a major shot at Chick-Fil-A. 

Burger King has taken to Twitter to call out Chick-Fil-A amid the ongoing chicken sandwich wars. On Thursday, the fast-food chain paid tribute to Pride month, but not without a bit of shade. 

“The #ChKing says LGBTQ+ rights! during #pride month (even on Sundays), your chicken sandwich craving can do good! we are making a donation* to @HRC for every Ch’King sold.”

As a Christian-based company, Chick-Fil-A remained closed on Sundays. According to their website, the day off was implemented to give employees a chance to rest, spend time with family and friends, or set aside one day to worship if they so choose. 

Burger King followed up the tweet, noting that their contender for the chicken sandwich wars is also giving back to the community. 

“*6/3-6/30 with every Ch’King sold, BK will contribute 40₵ to the Human Rights Campaign (Max. donation $250k).”

Chicken Sandwich Wars Continue

Recently, more competitors have joined the fight to be named the chicken sandwich wars champion. 

Chick-Fil-A upped their sauce game with a new cheese sauce. Yes, you read that correctly. Now available on the secret menu is a creamy blend of Swiss and Parmesan. You can use the sauce for dipping your waffle fries, chicken nuggets, Chick-n-Strips, or just to put straight on your sandwich.

This is a judgment-free zone. Heck, put a (paper) straw (save the turtles) in the cheesy delight!

Furthermore, Chili’s has also thrown their hat into the ring with a new chicken sandwich. It features a piece of chicken that is “delectable, hand-battered, hand-breaded, and made-to-perfection.” It is also covered in a secret sauce that is “so craveably addictive your taste buds are going to beg for more.”

That is quite the promise.

Other notable con-(chicken)-tenders include Popeyes, KFC, a Pringles and Wendy’s collaboration (we are also unsure about this one), McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Arby’s, and Zaxby’s. 

According to two chicken sandwich specialists, (how can I acquire this title?) John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman of Michigan, are set out to crown one the winner of the cluck war. 

They named their top three choices as Chick-Fil-A, Popeyes, and Burger King, with the King reigning supreme. 

What do you think of the ranking? Or are you like us, and you grub at whatever is closest? Who has time for lines anyway?
