Emotional support chicken, Popeyes holiday travel stress reducer


Popeyes wants to make holiday travel a little easier and less stressful. Hopefully, the emotional support chicken can make your next trip better.

Popeyes understands that travel can be stressful, especially during the holidays. From travel delays to overcrowded planes, it can be difficult. For some people, emotional support animals can offer relief to the travel. With all the new rules and regulations about emotional support animals, the stress around travel is even more. Now, there is a solution that compiles with TSA, emotional support chicken.

The Popeyes Emotional Support Chicken is meant to bring a little levity to the holiday travel stress. Available Philadelphia International Airport, Terminal C, the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen offers a special fried chicken meal. Packed in a special carrier, the meal is a three pieces tender combo. The offer is available while supplies last.

"“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, CMO of POPEYES® Louisiana Kitchen. “We appreciate how comforting emotional support animals are and wanted to create our own version. The good news is that our emotional support chicken is permitted to fly without any restrictions – one less worry for busy travelers!”"

This launch is meant to be fun. It isn’t designed to offend anyone or make light of emotional support animals. The idea is for everyone to have a good laugh and break up the stress that is often high during this time of the year.

Now, there could be a downside to this emotional support chicken. Taking the carrier on the plane could get some looks from fellow passengers. Those looks might be jealously. The delicious aroma of fried chicken could make fellow passengers hungry.

In the true holiday spirit, wouldn’t it be nice if you bought an extra emotional support chicken to share with a fellow traveler. Isn’t that part of the emotional support that everyone could use during holiday travel? A warm smile, a helping hand and a lot of patience can go a long way to reduce all the travel stress.
