    Dear Cracker Barrel Customer:

    When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we've done.

    You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren't shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong.

    We listened.

    Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores.

    And, we apologize for offending you.

    We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different.

    We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family.

    Or maybe they realized they were too hasty to get rid of the cracker.

    I have a novel idea!
    Why didn't CB, simply ignore all the brouhaha since, afaik, they were never involved anyway?
    Their business is selling food & "stuff", why get into the business of meddling in another's "offenses"???

    Good question. Why on earth would any company put themselves in the middle of this mess? Ain't nobody even been thinking about CB selling those products till they said something.

    I hope this person is fired. If your marketing expert is this far off base from knowing the customer base they ought not have a job.

    ??? Why wouldn't they have a significant LGBT crowd? The LGBT folks like to eat too.:laugh: The place is about Southern cooking. EVERYBODY of EVERY sexual persuasion goes to CB.

    I'm in Georgia so if the food is good, they surely do.

    Nothing but silliness to think LGBT folks aren't eating at Cracker Barrel. They cater to travelers who want good food. LGBT folks travel too. :laugh:

    You were wrong because neither one of you knows who is eating at Cracker Barrel.:smilewinkgrin: So no need to try and cover your tracks now.

    Ummm….I'm pretty sure we do now.

    Speaking of covering up your tracks, are you going to man-up and admit you "got took" with that pope story ?
