KFC thanks man who participated in '11 Herbs and Spices' social media stunt

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- KFC steps up to the plate, and says thank you to one of the eleven herbs and spices who took part in the company's recent social media stunt that went viral.

The company slashed its Twitter followers from 35,000 down to just six "Herbs" and the Spice Girls, which represented the ingredients in its secret recipe.

WDRB recently tracked down one of the "Herbs," Herb Scribner in Salt Lake City.

Scribner shared a picture of a personalized trophy he received for playing along, and a letter thanking him for re-tweeting, commenting and liking throughout the wild ride.

The letter was signed 'Yours in chicken and social media, Colonel Harland Sanders."

And last but not least, Scribner also received 11 $11 gift cards.

KFC also created a plaque to commemorate the stunt which will go in the Louisville vault along with that secret recipe.
