Popeyes is jumping on emotional support bandwagon with its new ‘Emotional Support Chicken’

Just in time for the busy holiday travel season, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is offering flyers its own brand of comfort and reassurance in the air with the launch of its “Emotional Support Chicken.”

Starting Tuesday and for a limited time, travelers passing through Terminal C of Philadelphia International Airport can purchase the high-flying fowl – a fried chicken meal in a specially designed, chicken-themed carrier box, perfect for taking onto the next flight.

“We know holiday travel can be frustrating, and there’s no better way to ease stress than with a box of delicious Popeyes fried chicken and a good laugh,” said Hope Diaz, the company’s chief marketing officer, in a statement.

At $8.49, the Emotional Support Chicken tenders meal is the same price as its earth-bound kin.
