Popeyes “Emotional Support Chicken” To Aid Holiday Travelers

Yahoo Lifestlye / Twitter

Traveling during the holidays can be stressful. From packing to making your flight on time to having the same flight you just sprinted to the gate for get delayed – it can all start to build up. Luckily, Popeyes has you covered.

Traveling Is Stressful

During the holidays the stress of traveling is tripled. You’re most likely going to spend hours in massive crowds only to be jammed on the plane in between a loudly chewing guy and an overly energetic kid.


Support Animals Are Being Banned

Many people opt to bring their support animals on planes to help them cope with the stress of flying. This can help but for anyone who has ever traveled with an animal you know it can sometimes add to the craziness. And unfortunately, many airlines are looking at banning your pooch from riding along with you…

So Popeyes Made Support Chickens

Which is why Popeyes has come out with their Emotional Support Chicken basket to help get you from point A to point B without losing your mind. The basket looks exactly like a chicken and while it might not cluck and peck like a real one – it is sure to provide a much-needed laugh during these crazy times.

The packaging is absolutely adorable and if just looking at it doesn’t get a chuckle out of you, the text explaining how to use the Emotional Support Chicken will.

It reads, “This chicken provides comfort and nourishment during stressful air travel. Unlike other chicken, it is marinated in real Louisiana spices for 12 hours and must be permitted to fly without restriction. Do not leave unattended, as Popeyes is not responsible for lost or stolen chicken.”

Where Do I Sign Up?

The three-piece tenders combo is a limited supply, hot-ticket item. To get in on all the deliciously hysterical fun, you need to head to Philadephia and check out the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Terminal C. Between the delicious chicken you’ll be consuming and the ridiculous packaging all your friends will envy – it might just be worth a detour.

Delayed? Overpacked? Tired? Stressed? Cuddle up to an #EmotionalSupportChicken at Popeyes. (Available in the Philadelphia airport by Gate C31.)
