Cracker Barrel is known for its rocking chairs, and on-the-road breakfasts during vacation. The restaurant chain recently made some changes to their menu.

Although nothing was changed or removed from the things that people love, CBS News Philadelphia reportsThe company’s addition of meat options caused controversy among its fans. Cracker Barrel introduced Impossible Foods sausage to social media Monday, causing a flood of complaints.

“I just lost respect for a once great Tennessee company,”According to CBS Philly, one commenter wrote. “Not going to happen! Cracker Barrel used to be so good, we looked forward to eating in them but not anymore,”Another was added without common sense. Others kept it simple and said that the decision was wrong and that faux meat doesn’t taste good.

Keep in mind that the regular sausage will still be available and that you don’t need to order the Impossible meat unless it is requested. Others have contributed positive thoughts. “I’m a big meat eater but impossible burgers and sausage are sooooo good!! I couldn’t even tell the difference. I think it’s great for people who can’t eat meat for whatever reason!!”A fan wrote. “I also hate the idea of a menu having options that I specifically don’t want to eat! Restaurants should limit their options to exactly my specifications and nothing more! How dare they cater to anybody other than myself!”Another wrote.

Cracker Barrel is one of the latest restaurants to offer Impossible meats. Other restaurants have chosen Beyond Meat as their choice for plant-based proteins. This follows the moves of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Burger King, which offer plant-based options.

“[Cracker Barrel is] 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, nutritious plant-based option like Impossible Sausage,” In a statement, the company said.They also responded via an Instagram post to the outrage.

This kind of stink didn’t come from anyone when Egg Beaters were introduced to the menu. Is turkey bacon considered to be supporting terrorism?
