Food Cracker Barrel Launches Three New Menu Items Designed to Delight Southerners
Dunkin' Donuts Is Removing 10 Items From Its Menu
Dunkin' is taking the whole #NewYearNewYou goal pretty seriously in 2018. According to Boston.com, starting yesterday in select markets, the chain removed several items from its menu. Though change can be jarring for loyal customers, it's not exactly a surprise. Last year saw several alterations to both Dunkin's menu and its brand. Back in March the chain announced it would be replacing it's classic Frozen Coffee Coolatta with the Frozen Dunkin' Coffee. Not long after that, we learned that the name of the company might also be changing.
Born in Lebanon, Tennessee in 1969, and perfecting it's down-home craft ever since, it's no surprise thatknows what Southerners crave. With their latest menu arrivals for spring 2018, it's clear they've once again knocked it out of the park.
Available nationwide March 19th for $8.99 each, the comfort food maestros will be launching three seasonal "Southern Bowls" that riff on traditional favorites. First, there's the Fried Chicken Benedict bowl (pictured above) with fried chicken, two over-easy eggs smothered in pimento cheese sauce, and garnished with parsley on a split buttermilk biscuit. The bowl will also include their new sweet pepper n' red skin hash.

Next, the Ham n' Maple Bacon Bowl combines maple-pepper bacon with hickory-smoked country ham, alongside sugar-cured ham with sticky-sweet maple onion jam slathered on top. In addition to the sweet pepper n' red skin hash. This meal also comes with two scrambled eggs sprinkled with Colby cheese, and two buttermilk biscuits.
Things Southerners Do While We Wait for a Table at Cracker Barrel
We had a sneaking suspicion that many of us intentionally choose the busiest hours at Cracker Barrel just so we’ll have and excuse to do lots more than peruse the list of country sides. So we polled our Facebook Brain Trust, and sure enough—y’all aren’t there just for the chicken and dumplings. Here’s what we’re all doing while we wait for our turn at Uncle Herschel’s Favorite: Contemplate whether this is the trip to Cracker Barrel during which I’ll finally spring for one of the rocking chairs for sale on the front porch because they’re pretty perfect, and surely there’s a place at home where I can use one.
Last but certainly not least is the Sausage, Grits Cakes n' Green Tomato Gravy Bowl. This mouthwatering dish starts with a layer of the new hash under sausage patties and two scrambled eggs with shredded Colby cheese. The pièce de résistance? Two deep-fried stone-ground pimento cheese grits cakes, clearly designed to stay in your dreams for many, many nights to come. To complete the meal, rich, green tomato gravy with fresh parsley is ladled over the top. Of course, it's also served up with those signature buttermilk biscuits.
"At Cracker Barrel, we remain committed to our traditional roots in homestyle cooking, while also appreciating the evolving tastes, preferences and dining habits of our guests," said Cammie Spillyards-Schaefer, vice president of culinary for Cracker Barrel in a company press release. "Our new Southern Bowls pair classic Southern staples with bolder flavors and seasonings to create new offerings of craveable comfort food with a Southern twist."
Since these limited-time offers are only available atthrough May 6th, make sure you plan a few visits to get this tantalizing trio in your life pronto.
