LEBANON, Tenn.  (RestaurantNewsRelease.com)  As the days get shorter and the weather turns cooler, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® is cozying up to sweet and savory flavors straight from the harvest to the table. From August 30 through October 24, stop in at Cracker Barrel for their fall-inspired favorites.

“Fall is that time of year when families come back together around the table for some good comfort food,” said Cracker Barrel Chef Bill Kitzler. “Our Harvest Fest offerings give our guests that warm feeling of savory home cooking paired with the sweet seasonal tastes of apples and cider for a true fall flavor experience.”

For a fresh start to your day, their Wholesome Mornin’ Sampler is sure to please. It starts with low-fat vanilla yogurt blended with cinnamon-spiced apples and topped with a honey oat granola mix.
