The Popeye's chicken nuggets, 8 out of every 10 people in Acadiana had no idea the fast food chain served them. How do we know? We asked. So for a hot minute, forget about the diva chicken sandwich and embrace the 8, 12, 24 or 36-piece amazing chicken nuggets box set that will turn your volume up to 10.

Unless you've been under a rock, you know about Popeye's chicken sandwich. But, as we found out recently, not a ton of people know about Popeye's chicken nuggets.

Anytime I find something amazing, extremely good service I received someplace, a great deal that saves the KTDY audience money, etc. I like to share my experience with our community on the radio. It doesn't matter if the product or service comes from a sponsor of the CJ and Ellen in the Morning show or not.

I recently discovered chicken nuggets from Popeye's and I can't say enough about them. Forget everything you know about the fast-food chicken nugget.

For those of you old enough to remember when Tony Roberts owned the Yellow Bowl restaurant back in the 70s and 80s, remember the batter on the fried shrimp? The batter was so delicious. As a kid, Mr. Roberts would come to sit at the table with my parents and me just to watch me eat the fried shrimp. He once told me he had never seen someone my age (about 8 years old) eat so many shrimp at one time.

The reason I tell you the story about the Yellow Bowl's fried shrimp back in the day is because the batter on the  Popeye's chicken nuggets comes really close to that of the Yellow Bowl's over 40 years ago.

I am so impressed with Popeye's chicken nuggets that I have asked our company, Townsquare Media, to reach out to Popeye's so that I might become the local spokesperson for Popeye's nuggets. That's how serious I am about these chunks of real chicken deliciousness. -"CJ" from CJ and Ellen in the Morning

Townsquare Media websites have produced stories about the infamous Popeye's Chicken sandwich, the demise of a popular Popeye's buffet at one Lafayette location and our content creators have written numerous articles about Popeye's rival chicken sandwiches but we've never mentioned the nuggets. Maybe that's because, like most of you reading this, we didn't know about them.
