Cracker Barrel has been around since 1969, the first store opened right here where we live, in Lebanon, TN. One of the biggest reasons that I believe Cracker Barrel has been so successful is their consistency and dedication to keeping things simple just like they were back in 1969. Many of the menu items have been around forever, my favorite Chicken & Dumplings are the same as they were the first time I tried them and my husband knows that the first place he ever tried turnip greens as a little boy is still the best place to go today for a bowl of his favorite greens. My husband has lived in the Nashville area all his life and remembers visiting the first store with his grandparents many times just down the road off highway 109 from his Uncle’s cattle farm. How many restaurants can you say that you have visited over the years that have not changed up their menu to try and reinvent themselves and you end up not liking the change? I can only think of a couple and Cracker Barrel is one of them. While Cracker Barrel does remain consistent with their atmosphere and food, there are a few times throughout the year that they introduce us to something special and one of those is their spooky Halloween items.
If you visit your local Crack Barrel today there is a good chance that you will see a spooky display like the one pictured above. There are some really unique items here that you will not find at other stores, we love the Day of the Dead themed items and here you will find shirts, coffee mugs, tumblers, books and more.
The Sugar Skull Tumbler is huge and holds 32 oz. of your favorite beverage and features a festive Dia de los Muertos design that is just gorgeous against the stainless steel backdrop. For the Halloween Feast place the Stoneware Bride and Groom Salt & Pepper Shaker set on the table and they will be sure to strike up a conversation. If you are a fan of dark stories then The Essential Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe is for you. Poe was one of the the writers that defined the horror genre and this book features an exceptionally generous selection of Poe’s short stories. It includes his famed masterpieces, such as “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Purloined Letter,” featuring Poe’s great detective, Dupin; his insightful studies of madness “The Black Cat” and “The Tell-Tale Heart”.
Head over to your local Cracker Barrel today and grab some Chicken & Dumplings or Chicken Fried Chicken and be sure to browse their store for this spooky selection of Halloween Goodies. If there is not a store near you or you are pressed for time the Halloween Collection is also available at CrackerBarrel.com.
