Popeyes' Major New Sandwich Is Now Back On the Menu

Last year, Popeyes surprised and delighted fans with a sandwich tailor-made for the Lenten season, which, according to many, was just as much of a masterpiece as the iconic chicken sandwich. Luckily, the Flounder Fish Sandwich is now back for round two at nationwide locations.

It's made with a flakey flounder filet spiced in Cajun seasoning and fried, then served atop a buttery brioche bun with barrel-cured pickles and tartar sauce. And this time around, you can get it in either Classic or Spicy versions.

"After seeing the response to our Chicken Sandwich in 2019, we are excited to deliver yet another delicious sandwich to our fans that is sure to reset industry standards," said Popeyes president Sami Siddiqui when the item launched last year. "At Popeyes, we don't take shortcuts on quality and strive to ensure our ingredients are the best of the best."

And based on the rave reviews from customers and food critics alike, Popeyes seems to have created another category killer. According to one writer who conducted a taste test of fast-food fish sandwiches, the Cajun-spiced creation from Popeyes is "the rare fish sandwich that actually tastes like something."

Similar sentiments were heard in a new promotional video, which the chain created in collaboration with social media personality New York Nico. In it, New Yorkers can be heard expressing skepticism about the authenticity of fish in fast-food fish sandwiches. Once they try the Flounder Fish Sandwich, however, the general consensus seems to be that the fish quality is superior and the sandwich is a cut above the rest (sorry, Filet-O-Fish.)

The sandwich is again selling at a recommended price of $4.49, and can be found at Popeyes locations nationwide. For Popeyes Rewards Members, the deal gets even better—every purchase of the sandwich will give them a bonus of 150 points.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
