Tasty Tuesday: Cracker Barrel Giveaway ($100 Gift Basket)

Feb7

Want some help with the groceries this month?
Enter to win a $50 Walmart gift card as well.

The thought of taking the night off from cooking dinner sounds so wonderfully appealing right now.

Nine times out of ten, if my husband asks me where I want to go out to eat, it’s Cracker Barrel. I’ve shared my devotion to that restaurant here on my blog many times, and my love of them runs deep. The memories that our family has from our years of eating there always causes me to smile and sigh.

You see, I am not a fancy, gourmet type, eat out kind of girl.  Just give me a choice of down home goodness any day and I am so very content. Match that with the fact that I can browse the gift shop, play checkers and sit by the big roaring fire while I wait, and I am more than happy.

I don’t really know why we even look at a menu anymore. Five out of the seven of us chose the same entree each time. Peach pancakes, Uncle Hershel’s Breakfast, Grilled Chicken Tenderloin and lots of Hash-brown Casserole can always be found around our table.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it, and I bet looking at my pictures causes you to do the same.

One of my fortunate readers is going to win a $100  Cracker Barrel Gift Basket filled with some of their favorite products. Do you see the above basket? Yes, I already received one and you are going to get the same thing. It’s so fun!

Since it’s Tasty Tuesday, and I know many of you love kitchen products, not only will you receive fun food items, but you will also receive one of their Cast Iron pans. I’m slowly purchasing a variety of  sizes for my Cast Iron collection because theirs nothing better than a loved and fully seasoned skillet.

If you don’t live close to a Cracker Barrel, most of these items are on sale online. A  fun new fact that I didn’t know is that you can visit any Cracker Barrel location and handpick items from the store to fill a basket with games, sweet treats or goodies. They’ll wrap and decorate the custom-made basket or bundle at no additional cost, and that really makes a great gift.

One Winner will receive this $100 Gift Basket from Cracker Barrel:

Lodge Logic Skillet
Cracker Barrel Pancake Mix
Cracker Barrel Natural Syrup
Cracker Barrel Coffee
Rocking Chair Mug
Cracker Barrel Spiced Apple Butter
Cracker Barrel Fried Apples
Jumbo 3-in-1 Jumbo Checkers
Traditional Peg Game
Cracker Barrel Peanut Brittle
Moon Pies
GooGoo Supreme
Cracker Barrel Pecan Log
Cracker Barrel Praline Fudge
Bob’s mint sticks
Thin sticks

You have four chances to win, but only one entry is necessary to win.

1) When was the first time you ever went to the Cracker Barrel? If you haven’t, what fun foods, candy or Cast-iron Cookware would you like to try from their site?

Comments

  1. I LOVE all things Cracker Barrel! I remember going into the city and eating there for the first time with my Grandma on my Dad’s side. Everytime I go there now, which is very rare, I think of her! What great memories!

    What a fun giveaway! Thanks for hosting TT! :)

  2. I like you on Facebook

    I’ve been following for a few weeks now – keep the great posts coming and thank you for your efforts – Love the Cracker Barrel giveaway too so I did all the steps to enter

  4. I am subscribed to your blog via rss feed.

  5. I first went to Cracker Barrel with my family many years ago. The chicken and dumplings were a revelation and something I try to this day to replicate. ;)

  6. I LOVE Cracker Barrel! We happen to have one less than 10 minutes from our house- I love to stop in and browse their gift store from time to time. They always have the neatest things!

    The first time I ever went to a Cracker Barrel was actually for a 1st Day of School Breakfast with my homeschooled children. It’s a yearly event- and since we don’t eat out often, something we really look forward to. We started out visiting a different restaurant each year, but that kind of changed after we tried Cracker Barrel. They’ve been our restaurant of choice for the past five years now. :) My husband and children love the potato casserole and fruit topped pancakes and I love the muffins!

  7. The first time I went to Cracker Barrel was June 1996, in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was also my first time in MB, since Iowans have pretty much no idea where it is, although I’ve since discovered that it is the law to visit if you live in KY or WV, where it’s simply referred to as “The Beach.” I had the great fortune of discovering hash brown casserole that day and have ordered it (and recreated it) many times at home since.

  8. For the first time, I went to Cracker Barrel on a family vacation when I was a little girl. It is still a favorite of mine to this day.

  9. I can’t remember the first time I went to a Cracker Barrel, we used to go sometimes on our family road trips so I’m sure I was a little kid at the time. I used to always get their grilled cheese from the kids menu!

  10. I subscribe through a reader.

  11. The first time I ever went was in Indiana when I was pregnant with my 3rd baby. :)

  12. I first went to Cracker Barrell shortly after they opened in my hometown when I was a little girl. Since then, the tradition has carried on with my husband and son going pretty faithfully as that, to, is our restaurant of choice. When moving across country, we only ate at CBs, as my husband calls it. When out west, it was the only place to go for sweet tea, grits, or chicken and dumplings, I still go for those now.

  13. I follow your blog faithfully.

  14. … and I like your FB page now. :)

  15. My hubby took me to Cracker Barrel when we were dating. We stop for a late breakfast/lunch every time we travel.

  16. I used to go with my family growing up, so I’d say its been a favorite since I was around 10 or so!

  17. I’ve never been to Cracker Barrel! My sil takes her kids there for lunch at the end of each school year for the last day of school.

  44. I’ve never been to Cracker Barrel (live in California), but I would love to try the Cast-Iron Lodge Logic 8″ Skillet.

  45. Love Cracker Barrel, would love to try their cast iron pan…don’t have one! :)

  46. The first time was on a road trip to North Carolina with my husband and then-toddler. We’d heard it was a good place to stop along the road, and we heard right! My son was entertained, we were well-fed, and have stopped many times since.

  47. I was a tween or young teen the first time I went to Cracker Barrel. The store is the *best* travel aid ever. A ring pop or push pop from the CB store will keep the kids quiet and entertained for an hour on a long trip (although I do wish there were versions made w/ cane sugar and without the artificial dyes etc).

It is tradition whenever we go to the outlet mall in Jeffersonville, Oh to stop at Cracker Barrell on our way there.

    The first time I ever went to Cracker Barrel was when my younger sister and I were on a road trip with our grandparents while my older sister went with my mom on a school trip. We stopped at a Cracker Barrel somewhere in Missouri and I remember thinking this was the coolest place ever! You can play games while you eat, checkers by the fire, and there was an awesome store filled with trinkets and old-time candies! I thought “aw, we need to make this trip again so we can come here!” Well, in my eleven-year old knowledge, I didn’t know that there were plenty Cracker Barrels back in Oklahoma. Now as a grown-up, I thoroughly enjoy stopping in with family and friends and having a heaping helping of apple butter, mmmmm!

  284. I can’t remember my first visit to Cracker Barrel – I’ve been there so many times! I am addicted to their peanut brittle. My aunt and uncle gave us a huge tub of it for Christmas, and we practically inhaled it!

  285. I can’t remember the first time I went to Cracker Barrel but I do know I love it and I do know that my favorites things there is any breakfast or meat loaf yum yum!

  286. Love the comfort food and homey feel of our Cracker Barrel! We always try to get a table by the big woodburning fireplace this time of year, and the kids play the peg game on the table while we wait to be served. My favorite thing to order is the grilled chicken tenderloin salad. Mmmm!

    Believe it or not the first time I went to Cracker Barrel it had just opened the first in our area. I was with my 6 week old daughter alyssa and my friend Frank. It was my first time out with the baby and had an overwhelming amount of people stop to say how beautiful she was. When we asked the waitress for our bill she said that someone had paid our bill. I was in awe I asked her if she could tell me whom so I could atleast thank them and she said he had already left. He had told her he was away from his family on business and was homesick, he said we had a lovely family and just felt the urge to do something nice. It warmed my heart and made me think how blessed I was to have such a joyous beautiful daughter. She is 6 now and is still such a joy.
    On another note I love the Cracker Barrell and all the home cooked food. I do also love to wander the gift shop and be reminded of when I was younger. I filled my daughters stocking with candy and little beanie babies from there. I would love love love to win. Thank you for the opportunity.

  348. LOVE love love “Crackle Barrel” (as my 4 year old calls it). It is pretty much the only place we eat on road trips. Great comfort food, big porch, and shopping… what’s not to love? Even our 10 year old, whom we brought home from China 11 months ago and initially hated all American food except hot dogs, quickly learned to love CB. She gets so excited when we go; her favorite meal is the spicy grilled catfish. And she eats the entire 2 pcs of fish, 3 veggies meal. She has astonished many waitresses when they see her clean her plate.

    Anyway– I’d love to get some of their cast-iron for my own collection. That, and DH is very fond of their apple butter. Thanks for sharing this giveaway!!

For a year and a half my husband and I lived at Ocean Creek Resort in Myrtle Beach. There was a Cracker Barrel right next door!

  379. Since they have so many delicious dishes on their menu, I always get the Cracker Barrel Sampler. This way I get a little bit of everything!
    My favorite thing that I always buy at the general store is Dionis cucumber mint lip balm. It is made with goats milk and it is the BEST!!!!

  400. there was not a cracker barrel in our town when i was young. we took a trip to branson and ate at one there. since, they’re built a restaurant in our town and we eat there on occasion. it brings back memories and comfort every time i eat there

  401. I LOVE CRACKER BARREL! My friend and I go there regularly, and I was telling him that I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal there. The food is always good, and I love their general store – it’s the only place I know where I can get my Black Jack gum! By the way, those Lodge Logic preseasoned cast iron skillets are top rated – it’s especially neat that they have a custom pan with the Cracker Barrel logo.

  414. We had a cracker barrel right down the street from the house I grew up in, hard to pass it by everyday and not stop in…which we did frequently. Loved the big, roaring fire and all the comfort food. And shopping in the store while waiting.

We lived ina town about halfway between two Cracker Barrel locations and I recall more than one 45 minute drive down the interstate to eat at a Cracker Barrel. When one finally opened in my hometown just as I graduated from High school, i got a job in the gift shop that lasted through my entire ungraduate career.

    I remember our first stop at Cracker Barrel was when we were en route to visit my mom’s side of the family in Alabama. We were driving from central Il. and stopped just south of Nashville. We had seen them advertised but had never stopped. That then became the place we would stop everytime after that. Dad would never stop for a bathroom break but boy if you mentioned you were hungry and there was a Cracker Barrel up the road he would stop. He’s gone now but that is something I will always remember and share with my kids.

  493. I grew up going to Cracker Barrel. We were a family of six that often had a grandparent or cousin or another family member living with us so our typical table was for at least eight and it was one of the few sit down places with prices affordable enough for my dad to take us out to eat to. Now my husband, kids, and I love eating there. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

    I first went to Cracker Barrel as a nine year old girl with my grandparents. At the time, we didn’t have a Cracker Barrel where we lived in Kansas. However, my grandparents would take a trip to the family farm in Kentucky once or twice a year. And there were several CB restaurants along the way!! When I was 9 they took my brother and I along with them. I think we ate at CB 5 or 6 times that trip! :) SO fun! I thought it was a magical place as a young girl….and I still love to stop there when we get a chance!

  576. I “think” the first time I went to Cracker Barrel, dh and I were traveling with 5 of our kids when they were all 5 and under to visit family in Florida. We always drove all night to get at least half of the trip done while the kids slept. WE were looking for a place to get the kids out of the car and eat for breakfast. We feel in love with it at that point.

  577. My first time at Cracker Barrel was with my Mom. I got the apple pancakes and felt so special getting that cute little bottle of syrup. In fact, I still do! Hashbrown Casserole is a necessary side dish. Thank you!

I don’t even remember what I ate, but I remember my Grandma ordering with a fake southern accent, and thinking how cool it was seeing her corn in the foil & getting real southern food. My brother and I played the peg game the whole time! Now, we go to Cracker Barrel for my birthday every year because we all love it so much. The chef salad is delish!:)

We love the food and the people that work there!

  646. I love Cracker Barrel for the same reasons you gave. I am not sure when the first time I went was, but I think it was when they built a new one in Battle Creek, MI. (In the mid/late ’80′s)? Often went to breakfast with a group of people I worked with. If I am really hungry I order the “sunrise sampler”, otherwise it’s the “old timers.” Best place to get breakfast out!! Never seem to get there on the day they have sweet potato cassarole or the chicken pot pie. I pick up Christmas ornaments there for gifts when they are on clearance in January.

    We didn’t have any Cracker Barrel restaurants in Cincinnati when I was growing up, but I remember first going to one when we drove to Florida for vacation one year. Now I visit them whenever I visit my parents (they live in Florida now).

  678. Carolyn Gulley says:

    I can’t remember the first time I ate at Cracker Barrel but it must have been 30 yrs ago. The one thing I do know is that it is one of my favorite places. There is a joke in our family when asked how long it would take me to go from point A to point B that it depends on how many Cracker Barrels there are between because I will probably stop at every one. I love everything on the menu and like to shop and prefer their restrooms over any.

I’ve only been there once since then, but that’s mainly because there wasn’t one near us when we lived in California. My husband and I went for a date last year, and I decided to try some collard greens. They were so good!

  743. The first time I went to Cracker Barrel I was an adult. It was so cute to see the rocking chairs on the patio. When we went inside I was disappointed that we didn’t have to wait longer for a table because I didn’t get enough time to look at everything in the store!! So much fun stuff!

  744. Followed on Twitter and tweeted!

  746. On vacation with my husband. Now, whenever we are on a road trip we search for a Cracker Barrel where we can stop, take a break and have a yummy lunch together! Wish there were more on the East Coast- they are such a treat!

  747. It’s hard for me to remember the very first time I went to Cracker Barrel but I remember that it used to be a tradition for us to always eat there whenever the family was taking a road trip. In fact, we still do it that way :) It never matters whether we’re having lunch or dinner, we always know it’s going to be good and there will be time for a little shopping when the table’s all cleared!

    I don’t even remember the first time I went to Cracker Barrel – it was probably on the way to Disney or Ohio with my parents and younger brother! It was a family tradition to get breakfast at the beginning of a trip or dinner on the way home. Now my husband and I take our children to Cracker Barrel, but we don’t have to wait for a trip anymore. There is a Cracker Barrel less than 5 miles from our house! It is quickly becoming a Sunday breakfast tradition!

    I’ve never been there… but my in-laws did almost miss the birth of my first child b/c they stopped to eat breakfast there. They were so shocked when my husband called and said they better hurry up. I guess my progress was a bit faster than most first-time moms.

    Also… I’d love to try the Lodge Logic 10 1/4” Skillet
