“Cast Your Bread Upon the Waters”
When you think of the word Chicken Log your thoughts may carry you down to the Deep South. And that’s exactly where you’ll find a charming Southern Lady named Cindy Fulghum with her quick smile, warm and friendly demeanor, and strong, determined spirit. She resides in a house built in 1878 in the rolling hills of Georgia. It was here that she was inspired to enter her “Chicken Log Recipe” (the name she had always called it for over 35 years) in a famous yearly contest called the Flavor of Georgia sponsored through the University of Georgia and the Governor’s Ag Day Program.
Ecclesiastes 11:1 was her confirmation after praying and finding a set of notes she had taken on a sermon about a year before and placed in her Bible. Cindy explains, “I had not really paid much attention to those notes and the scripture just stood out to me to read, so I looked it up and it said to ‘Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shalt find it after many days.’ I felt God was inspiring this so I wanted to give it all I had.”
So she entered the contest. Not only did she become one of the 26 Finalists out of 126 participants, but she won the Flavor of Georgia’s coveted People’s Choice Award for 2012. And she hasn’t stopped since. It was her sign to market this delicious product. That is where that determined spirit comes into play. “I have stayed true to my word. Only the finest ingredients would go into my product and only the best company would make my product. We have accomplished that.”
And with those promises backing her efforts, she expresses her hopes for the product: “I am proud to bring this product from my table to your table. I hope you will remember to use the Chicken Log at all your family gatherings, church socials, tailgating parties, showers, weddings, and as a wonderful snack to have on hand.”
From my table to yours,
Cindy R. Fulghum
