Cracker Barrel and plant-based meat isn’t the dream combination the company was perhaps hoping for, reports FOX NEWS.
When the American chain of restaurants and gift stores posted about it on its Facebook Page, they got 8,000 comments with some notable backlash from customers.
“Discover new meat frontiers,” read the post. “Experience the out of this world Flavor of Impossible Sausage Made From Plants next time you Build Your Own Breakfast.”
However, one Facebook user wrote: “Send them back to Gates,” in a reference to Bill Gates, who’s pro-synthetic meats.
“We don’t eat in an old country store for woke burgers.”
Added another: “I just lost respect for a once great Tennessee company.”
However, one person said regular meat will still be on the menu and that those against plant-based meat wouldn’t be forced to eat it.
“It’s amazing the snowflakes here getting triggered by a meat alternative showing up on a menu,” the person wrote. “Y’all can still order regular meat, you know that right?”
Cracker Barrel issued a statement Thursday to FOX Business saying it appreciated “the love our fans have for our all-day breakfast menu.”
“At Cracker Barrel, we’re always exploring opportunities to expand how our guests experience breakfast and provide choices to satisfy every taste bud – whether people want to stick with traditional favorites like bacon and sausage or are hungry for a new, plant-based option like Impossible Sausage.”
