Are You Eating the Best Chicken Sandwich?
Our interns tried, and rated, five sandwiches—find out which one tops them all
Last summer saw the launch of an immensely popular sandwich that would take the world by storm. Popeyes locations across the country, including the now defunct Kenmore restaurant, were selling out of its new savory fried chicken sandwich for weeks following its release. Now that the hype has died down, three BU Today interns have taken on the challenge of rating various chicken sandwiches around Boston and on campus. Their mission? To find which fast food chicken sandwich really deserves the accolades.
Our interns (Jacob, Rusty, and Nathan) assessed the essential elements to any great chicken sandwich: the chicken, the bun, and the toppings, and rated each from 1 to 5, with 15 being a perfect score. Once each sandwich had been meticulously tasted and savored, the interns’ individual ratings were averaged to provide an accurate, definitive judgment of the chicken sandwich hierarchy.
