Regional or fictional??

Is it weird that I live in Georgia and have heard of the regional Nashville Chicken but have never heard a peep about the regional specialty called Georgia Gold? Been here all my life.

Perhaps they will eventually have a chicken dish for each of our 50 states.

Forget the chicken, I like Billy Zane.

I liked him in The Phantom.
His character in Titanic was not believable - a villainous brute from Pittsburgh.
Everybody knows that Pittsburgh produces only nice people, never villainous brutes!

Maybe Georgia Gold is more a takeoff on the mustard sauce culture than an actual chicken dish?

Mr. Zane was mentioned in the article.
IMHO, Norm MacDonald was the best 'new' Colonel.
 

 
Swerving back to topic ...
I hope KFC brings out some BBQ chicken with Alabama white sauce.

That white sauce bbq chicken would be interesting for sure. I didn't dislike their Nashville version even though it paled in comparison to the real deal.

I just can't stand Norm.
 
KFC did something to change their Nashville Hot and it wasn't bad the last time I had it.
 
Not sure I'd like honey mustard on anything other than strips. 
 
I wonder if Go for the Gold is trademarked.  It would be perfect.

Correct me if I'm wrong (usually), but isn't Mustard Sauce more closely associated with South Carolina than Georgia?

You're correct but as I understand it mustard sauce isn't limited to only South Carolina; it spills over into NE Georgia as well.  I wouldn't be surprised if someone in KFC's marketing department prefers the sound of "Georgia Gold" to "Carolina Gold".

I would guess that they couldn't use Carolina Gold, as that is trademarked for rice of that name.

What do you mean was? He's still around, and in tomorrow morning's paper I expect to see him taking care of an evil ninja. But I never heard of this Zane person, either. In fact, the only Zane I've ever heard of is Zane Grey. Great fisherman. I don't know what he did for a living.

I believe he was peddler of words, mostly revolving around the Old West, and such.  Didn't know he fished too.

I think you're thinking of Zane Grey

Georgia's mustard sauces are distinct and different from South Carolina's mustard sauces.  I've written about this many times at Marie, Let's Eat!, but I don't have enough of a readership for it to take hold.  Chicken Comer-style mustard, for example, can be found in several places in the central west and around Atlanta's western suburbs, but it's utterly unlike anything you can find in SC.  (It was actually originated in Phenix City AL, but I have not found any Alabama business that serves it anymore.)
 
A little more on the subject here: https://marieletseat.com/...glasville-ga-take-two/
 
That said, no, I've never heard of Georgia mustard fried chicken either!

I'll bet you thought Ted Williams was just a baseball player. I'll even bet you thought Bobby Knight was just a basketball coach. As with Mr. Gray, Williams and Knight are well known as fishermen (in the case of Williams, was).

That makes sense, as when he was coaching Knight was always carping about something!
