Mother’s Day Giveaway 2012 – Cracker Barrel Gift Basket Full of Goodies for Mom

It’s funny that this is a Mother’s Day post because my dad absolutely LOVES Cracker Barrel. Any birthday, anniversary, or special occasion that he gets to pick where we all go out to eat —  Cracker Barrel it is.

That’s not to say that my mom doesn’t enjoy Cracker Barrel, because she does. She loves their home cooked food. It’s nice for her to get a break from cooking all those meals. And their store just has so many cute things! I know that I really enjoy going there because it always smells wonderful and the food is so delicious.

Cracker Barrel is all about celebrating the moms and grandma’s out there this Mother’s Day! They have events both in store and online. You really need to check them out.

    Oh, how I love Cracker Barrel. It’s the only restaurant where I actually secretly hope there might be a line-up so I have an excuse to browse in their store first! What a great give-away!

    The Cracker Barrel is my very favorite restaurant and store, even though we don’t have any in California. I have been to ones out of state many times and always stock up on their pecan logs, candies and little toys!

    I love that their “kids meals” are for kids of all ages. Sometimes a smaller portion is just what I want and I don’t like when restauraunts force you to order something much larger and more expensive.

  6. Michelle Small says

    I love the over-all atmosphere at Cracker Barrel. Love that you can sit outside and play checkers or relax in a rocker after a meal. And can not ever walk out of Cracker Barrel with out making a purchase of some good old fashioned goodies.

  7. Cheryl Rahkonen says

    Well my favorite thing about Cracker Barrel is the food, of course – oh, how I love their biscuits. Also the atmosphere is fantastic – a great place to eat and shop.

    The only Cracker Barrel near us is on the way to the outlet mall, so my favorite thing is that we get to go shopping when we eat there. :)

    I MISS Cracker Barrel! We do not have one up here on the PNW and every time I go back East, I just have to go there. I love the little gift shop, the home town feel, the wrap around porches at the restaurants. *sigh* I want their apples now.

    I really enjoy the food. But I like the country store atmosphere and the products. I love browsing while waiting for a table.

    My favorite thing about Cracker Barrel is how family-friendly they are! Parents can actually enjoy dining out with their families without stressing out. And shopping is just as much fun as the eating! 😀
