*CLOSED* Country Bob's Review & Giveaway (2 winners)

I recently received 2 bottles of Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce. I received it on the day that the big snow storm hit; however, I was on my way out the door whenever it showed up. I decided a few seconds wouldn’t hurt anything, so I opened one of the bottles to taste it. You know what I mean... the finger taste. Pour a bit on your finger – make sure that you like it. Mmmm. It’s delicious; definitely passed the finger test! Then I had to leave, had to make it to town AND beat the snow storm back home. The whole way down the mountain, I was trying to figure out exactly what was in the bottle, because ahhh, it sure was delicious!

A Little Bit About The Company: In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table.
It was actually October of 1982 when Country Bob, Inc. became the company, which remains today. Bob Edson,Terry Edson, Al Malekovic and Reed Malekovic formed a corporation with equal ownership. Since that time Country Bob's distribution has magnified regionally in all directions from our corporate office located in Centralia, Illinois. Even with the tremendous growth we have not forgotten where we came from, continuing in our relentless pursuit of product excellence.

As if that were not enough, check out who their CEO is:
It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company; however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and He is an Awesome Boss!
Fully faith-based! Awesome, right? Yes! Not too many companies will put “God” on their websites or anything else, in fear that they may lose customers due to it mentioning faith; however, I believe that in doing what Country Bob’s has done, they’ll receive even more customers.
Speaking of customers... what do customers buy from Country Bob’s? There are six categories in which people can shop:
»All Purpose Sauce
»Spicy All Purpose Sauce
»Barbeque Sauce
»Seasoning Salt
»Cookbook and Gift Packs
»Country Bob’s Apparel
Now, onto the cooking, I love anything fried (pretty much). It’s just the way I am. So, we fried up some chicken tenders (yummm!) and poured some of the sauce into a small dipping bowl. Oh my goodness!! You wouldn’t believe how great it tasted! Although I had already done the “finger test”, I was still overwhelmed by how delicious this stuff really is. In all honesty, when I first heard of Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce, I assumed that it would taste something like your typical barbeque sauce…Wrong! It’s like the perfect blend of everything that a sauce should have.
Believe it or not, I was able to save enough of the bottle that I’d already opened so that my parents could try it. Now, my dad is a chef, nothing famous and he isn’t working for any restaurants or anything, but trust me…He’s the cook. I let him taste it, and he loved it. Now, let me remind you that this man could sometimes make Simon Cowell from American Idol look like a sweetheart. (Not because he’s rude or anything, but he has a certain taste for certain things). I'd say that my dad is a mixture between Simon and the judges from Chopped. (Don’t get me wrong, I love my Daddy… but he can be a pain.) He (my Dad's) the type of cook that can be handed the perfect tasting sauce and yet still find something that could make it better. At any rate, my Dad loved the sauce. He wants my second bottle of the All Purpose Sauce, so I did the only thing that any daughter would do whenever she had something so wonderful…I hid it. (Don’t worry, I gave him SOME).
