(WWJ) -- The long wait is over -- the famous Popeyes chicken sandwich is back.

Popeyes' fried chicken sandwich set social media on fire this summer and sparked a great debate with Chick-Fil-A and other fast food chains over who had the best sandwich.

But much to the chagrin of Popeyes fans and those just dying to try the sandwich, Popeyes announced in late August it had run out of its chicken sandwich supply. Many people didn't even get a chance to try the sandwich back in the summer, as long lines deterred some from going out, and then the supply ran dry in a hurry.

Two months later, the sandwich makes its glorious return. The chicken chain had announced in October the sandwich would be back on Nov. 3.

It's not clear whether the sandwich will be back permanently or if there's again a limited supply this time around.
