Celebrate National Buttermilk Biscuit Day with Free Biscuits from the Experts at Cracker BarrelMay 14 is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day and what better way to celebrate than with free biscuits* from the experts: Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. In honor of this national holiday, Cracker Barrel is encouraging guests to visit their local store to enjoy its craveable, handmade biscuits. Inspired by simple ingredients and authentic preparations, each buttermilk biscuit is carefully hand crafted, using custom-designed rolling pins and biscuit cutters. With nearly 55 years of experience serving millions of biscuits to guests across the country, Cracker Barrel has mastered the craveable, flakey yet fluffy buttermilk biscuit recipe.

To further establish its biscuit expertise, Cracker Barrel conducted a nationwide survey to uncover the different ways people like their biscuits. In a survey of more than 5,000 adults throughout the United States, Cracker Barrel found that most states preferred butter (60%) or gravy (28%) as a biscuit topping, but Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky and Maryland prefer their biscuits come with bacon, sausage, eggs or jelly/jam.

In addition, the National Buttermilk Biscuit survey found that:

  • 2 out of 5 Americans say biscuits go well with a meal at any time of the day. That means, whether you are craving Biscuits n’ Gravy for breakfast or County Fried Steak with a side of biscuits for dinner, Cracker Barrel has you covered with its Buttermilk Biscuits, available all day.
  • Nearly half of respondents say they like their biscuit toppings to be both sweet and savory.

Made with the same high-quality ingredients, each Cracker Barrel store has a dedicated biscuit oven that produces a fresh batch of warm biscuits every day, perfectly flakey in texture and thickness and perfect all types of toppings.
  • The results also showed that 50% of respondents say homemade buttermilk biscuits are intimidating to make from scratch.
