Cracker Barrel Offers Up New Comfort Food Menu for Fall
Step aside Starbucks, because your monopoly on signature fall menu items is about to have some serious competition.
Cracker Barrel is introducing a new line of fall favorites sure to please all the comfort food lovers out there. According to Delish, the restaurant chain announced the new menu additions this month just in time for our descent into cooler weather.
Cracker Barrel will be featuring homemade style Chicken Pot Pie as well as carrot cake made with coconut, pineapple, walnuts, cinnamon, and vanilla, topped with cream cheese icing and chopped pecans. Hungry yet?
But wait..there's more. How about a Pumpkin Pie Latte? Deliciously made with coffee and pumpkin pie flavors and it's topped with whipped cream, a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice, and a vanilla thin stick. The calories are totally worth it on this one, and it's severed hot or cold.
If you're looking for something warm and toasty, and pumpkin just isn't your cup of tea, maybe peach is. The restaurant chain is adding a peach tea to their menu for fall as well.
Since Cracker Barrel is a favorite family spot, the chain has made sure to add some new tasty items for the kiddos too. Little diners will be able to enjoy Mini Confetti Pancakes, Lil' Barrel Cheeseburgers, a Dirt Cup (a highly underrated dessert, IMO), and a Milk n’ Cookies Straw. Yes, a straw that is actually yummy when added to your glass of milk.
Coming off months of uncertainty, the chain is looking to bring some "comfort" to their customers. .“Cracker Barrel has always been known as a place where families come together to connect,” said Cracker Barrel Vice President of Culinary and Menu Strategy Cammie Spillyards-Schaefer. “As we move into this next season and continue to navigate uncertain times, we hope that our new menu additions offer families new ways to connect and enjoy the craveable, homestyle cooking they've always loved here at Cracker Barrel – whether they’re dining with us in our Old Country Store or in the comfort of their home.”
So, who's ready to eat? Summer has been fun with cookouts and grilling, but fall is looking pretty scrumptious already.
