Chicken sandwich wars are serious business. Chick-fil-A and Popeyes—and soon even Taco Bell—have offered crispy chicken sandwiches that rival any offerings of the gods—according to fans—and McDonald’s is trying to curry favor among these hardcore chicken sandwich enthusiasts. To kickstart this effort, the fast food chain debuted two new items: the Crispy Chicken Sandwich and the Deluxe Crispy Chicken Sandwich. They are being tested until January 26, 2020, in Texas and Tennessee.
The two new menu items, according to Elite Daily, feature a fried chicken filet served on a buttery potato roll and topped with butter and crinkle-cut pickles. The only difference between the two is that the Deluxe version is topped with tomatoes, lettuce, and mayo.
How do these sandwiches stack up against others? Consumers took to social media to express their reactions. One Twitter user said, “The mayo and lettuce perfectly accentuates the well-seasoned chicken. The taste is great although a spicy version would have been even better. I’d go for another one.”
