LEBANON, Tenn. -- April 1, 2013

Longer days and warmer weather offer a welcome change of seasons and signal
the arrival of the best of the crop at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store^®.
From April 1 through June 2, fresh picked items are popping up on the menu and
throughout the store.

“Spring’s bounty brings a renewed sense of adventure to the menu from the new
Multi-Berry Pancake Breakfast to the seemingly endless choices of Country
Dinner Plate main dishes, sides and vegetables,” said Cracker Barrel Chef Bill
Kintzler. “There’s a Grilled Chicken n’ Strawberry Salad, Buttermilk Oven
Fried Chicken Breast, and the fun-to-try and share anytime, new Cinnamon Pecan
Crumble Skillet, served warm in a skillet.”

Beyond the blueberries and strawberries, guests can pick out a little red,
white and blue to bring home too. The new Made in America collection features
dozens of patriotic themed items, all made in America. Items include scarves,
jewelry, coasters, tumblers, bunting, flag kits, books, stationery, children’s
rockers, games, cookware, a USA version of the beloved sock monkey and more.
Spring also signals the start of special occasions from Mother’s Day to
weddings, so Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s custom gift baskets and
bundles make great picks too.
