Cracker Barrel Ambassadors

Bloggers Indulge in Some Gold Medal Snacking

You don't have to be a professional cheese judge... to know world champion cheddar when you taste it.

BlogHer and Cracker Barrel cheese have partnered up this spring and summer to drive awareness of the Cracker Barrel cheese e-book. The book is the embodiment of cheese culture and everything that comes with it, scheduled to launch October 2013. In March 2013, the BlogHer bloggers came together in Chicago for the official brand immersion where they experienced the Cracker Barrel brand story, a gastronomic tour of Chicago and finally, a Spring Awakening brunch, which included a food styling session, cheese pairing activities and additional interactive elements.
