6 Reasons to Stop at Cracker Barrel
Cracker Barrel is a great place to pick up some of your favorite travel snacks! Ever since visiting the Jelly Belly Warehouse in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin and the Jelly Belly Factory in California, we have been huge fans of Jelly Belly Belly Flops! Did you know that you can buy these in the Cracker Barrel Stores?
Another Kentucky favorite that we love to drink when we are traveling is Ale-8-One! You can’t buy it in most stores around the country, but Cracker Barrel carries the bottles! (Plus you can purchase many of your other favorite specialty sodas, too!)
Did you see that you can take a tour of the Ale-8-One Bottling Plant in Winchester, Kentucky?
One summer we were on an intense road trip logging hundreds of miles. We had eaten at all the local restaurants, sampled the specialty treats but we were really missing southern-style biscuits and gravy! We may have been two thousand miles from home, but we knew we could count on Cracker Barrel to gives us the taste of home we were craving!
And of course, Cracker Barrel always helps make road trips a little more relaxing! Unless of course, your family is as competitive as ours is. Then you know that waiting for your food is a bit intense!
Whether you are looking for sweatshirts, ponchos, tea towels or gift books, Cracker Barrel has you covered. As the season’s change, so does the selection. You can find something for everyone – even if that someone is yourself!
End of Season Clearance Sales
Don’t forget to look for end of season clearance and discounts as well. Cracker Barrel is constantly rotating the themes, patterns and seasonal items which means you can find some great deals!
