Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has rolled out its new springtime menu systemwide, featuring several all-day items and a new sweet tea drink, and giving two previous limited-time offers permanent placement.
At breakfast, 599-unit Cracker Barrel now offers Multigrain Pancake Breakfast for $7.49, with three pancakes, two eggs, and a choice of bacon, smoked-sausage patties or turkey-sausage patties. The Six Grain n’ Granola Pancake Breakfast, available with two eggs and choice of breakfast meat for $7.79, features three pancakes made with six-grain batter, honey-oat granola mix and almonds.
Fresh blackberries and blueberries in low-fat vanilla yogurt and honey-oat granola are part of Cracker Barrel’s new Wholesome Mornin’ Sampler, which costs $6.99. The meal is served with a blueberry-raspberry muffin, two eggs and a choice of breakfast meat.
The chain also introduced its latest beverage, Sweet Southern Peach Iced Tea, which Bill Kintzler, Cracker Barrel’s corporate chef, said has “just a hint of sweetness and a very appealing aroma.”
The Grilled Reuben Platter and the North Atlantic Haddock, which previously had run as popular limited-time offers, now are offered as permanent selections, Cracker Barrel said. The haddock is served with a choice of three vegetables and buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins for $9.79.
Shrimp figures prominently on the spring menu, which feature the Country Shrimp n’ Scratch-Made Grits for $8.99 and the Shrimp Po’ Boy for $8.49.
The Grilled Chicken n’ Strawberry Salad, meanwhile, combines marinated grilled chicken tenderloin with fresh greens and spring mix and tops with fresh strawberries, feta cheese, chopped pineapple and sunflower seeds. The salad comes with a pepper vinaigrette dressing on the side and sells for $8.49.
“Springtime is the perfect time to introduce refreshing flavor combinations, along with a few surprises,” Kintzler said. “Fresh berries add a welcome twist to salads, and shrimp paired with homemade grits make a delightful departure from the ordinary.”
Cracker Barrel is based in Lebanon, Tenn., and operates in 42 states.
