Popeyes Selling 'Emotional Support' Chicken Meal Boxes In Philadelphia Airport Terminal

December 20, 2018


This is a shot of one of the limited edition Emotional Support Chicken boxes available from the Popeyes in terminal C of the Philadelphia International Airport. Some more info while I go grab myself some emotional support donuts and chocolate milk:

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.

Man, I don't know what it is with people who work at donut shops these days, but I haven't had a decently filled donut in years. It's like they only give you a single drop of filling because they know you can't see how much is in there when you buy it. They're laughing behind our backs! I remember when I was a kid donuts were practically exploding with filling. "This is about fried chicken, GW." Try to bring it on a flight and eat it next to me and we're both getting kicked off.

Thanks to ilana, who agrees you shouldn't bring delicious smelling food on a flight unless you have enough to share with everyone. It's common decency.

    This is a legit thing in Calgary, AB.

    Have you ever been on the bus when someone walks on with fried chicken? There's no escaping the smell - and you're able to open windows.

    And then there are the inevitable fried chicken farts if the flight is long enough.

    This is just one of those situations where a bad idea can still be great marketing.

    Pick some up when you come into town this season...

    Nice marketing. I'll take Popeye's over KFC, but it's always pretty dry and there are almost always better regional options.
