Winter’s remedy is as close as the nearest Cracker Barrel Old County Store. Guests can warm up by a cracklin’ fire with a hearty helping of classic and brand new comfort foods from Jan. 16 through Feb. 29.

“The combination of sweet potatoes, brown sugar, and cinnamon is traditional and very comforting,” says Cracker Barrel Chef Bill Kintzler. “When we put them together in Sweet Potato Pancakes, we flipped over the flavor and hope our guests will flip over them too.

“So, Sweet Potato Pancakes are on our winter menu and we’ve even added Sweet Potato Pancake mix to our branded food line available in our retail store, so guests can bring the goodness home.”

Guests can bring a little country home with Cracker Barrel’s new rooster-inspired home décor, too. From bowls to watering cans, the rooster collection starts spreading cheer throughout the house quietly at sun up.

For those who enjoy Cracker Barrel’s $5.99 Weekday Lunch Specials, the Country House Salad with choice of baked potato or soup has a new option. The potato can be topped with broccoli and cheese sauce or loaded with shredded Colby cheese and crumbled bacon, butter, and sour cream for an additional $1.49.
