Cracker Barrel announced that it would begin serving “impossible sausage,” a plant-based pork substitute, via Facebook on August 1st according to Fox 9 KMSP.
The meat substitute is currently an option in the “build your own breakfast” menu, per the Facebook post.
Cracker Barrel’s choice to include a meat substitute coincides with other chains, like McDonald’s, pulling their meat substitute products, per Fox 9 KMSP.
The restaurant’s Facebook post received a conservative backlash.
One Facebook user commented, “I just lost respect for a once great Tennessee company.”
Another customer said, “Are you kidding me? Who do you think your customer base is? I still order the double meat breakfast and it’s not even on the menu anymore.”
The second customer seemed to refer to the well-known correlation between Cracker Barrel restaurants and conservatives.
People living close to a Cracker Barrel are more conservative, whereas people living near a Whole Foods are more liberal, according to studies, per editor of The Cook Report, Amy Walter.
Indeed, according to Monmouth College, Amy Walter said that “Whole Foods vs. Cracker Barrel is the dividing line,” Walters argued, “It’s a good way to encapsulate politics in this country.”
The switch to vegetarian options signals a betrayal in the culture war for some conservatives.
Other right-wingers have become more and more concerned about how the proposed dietary solutions to “global warming” could degrade the dignity of man.
The recent trend of offering meat substitutes, and the implied vegetarianism, are not the most problematic dietary changes proposed by climate radicals.
Another, more disturbing trend is proposing that humans eat literal bugs.as proposed by the World Economic Forum. The BBC also advocates for eating bugs;, in one story, the British outlet asks “Could Grasshopper Really Replace Beef,” it reports that “Lab-grown meat and insects ‘good for planet and health,’” in another, and refers to insects as “A neglected protein-rich ‘superfood,’” in yet another article. The BBC is not the only media outlet plugging for man to eat bugs; last year CNN ran a story titled, “The food that can feed, and maybe save, the planet: Bugs.”
