Of course, its return coincides with National Sandwich Day, and company officials said the sandwich is back for good, USA Today reported.

The war is showing no signs of ending, with McDonald's jumping into the fray next year with a new chicken sandwich, Market Watch reported before Monday's announcement by Popeyes.
