The day after I emailed them about our blog, one of the owners of Country Bob's emailed me back. Wow! Not only was it fast, but there wasn't a middle man. Not to say it's wrong to have a PR person or another member of your team handle bloggers, but I loved the personal touch of having one of the owners be the one to respond to me. That's not the only personal touch you find in this company. The product itself is personal. A recipe that was made by Country Bob and given away to family and friends for 9 years before he thought to sell it. To me, that's an amazing story, because it sounds like something you or I could do! That makes this product all the more special, that it was originally something made for friends and family members and it just evolved into such a popular sauce all over the country!
Another great thing about this company is that I actually got an email with a tracking number for my review package! I love tracking numbers. It's more expensive to ship with them, but when you get one, you can figure out the exact day that you'll get it so you know you'll be around to receive it! My mail person always puts packages for me on my doorstep, and I am always worried about packages getting taken (even though it has never happened, and I've gotten lots of packages here), so knowing when the country bob's was going to be here made it so I don't peek my head outside every hour from 1PM to 5PM every day. On top of that, the bottles were packed really really well. I'm pretty sure I could have jumped up and down on the box and the bottles wouldn't have broken! They also sent a business card and a brochure with the bottles, which I love, because then you have all the information you need right at your fingertips!
Now that you've heard a bit about the company, you're probably curious about the product itself! Well, I tested it on a number of things. I dipped chicken fingers in it, I put it on breaded chuck patty sandwiches, I had it in hamburgers, and just today I drizzled it on garlic onion baked chicken breast! Some college students are great at cooking, but I am not one of them. Country Bob's made it so that I can dress up just about anything with just one sauce. That's great, because when I move into my apartment in the fall, I'll just need a bottle of country bob's instead of a bottle of BBQ, Worcestershire, and various other sauces. I can use this sauce on just about anything, even fish!
And if I were to run out of ideas on stuff to use Country Bob's on, they have a recipes page that makes it easy to find something new to use it on! It would also be great for thinking of new ideas to make in my apartment. I love this sauce, and I know you will, too!
