Does it hold true for your egg style choice?

Every year, Cracker Barrel sells approximately 83,000 rockers. That may sound like a lot, but that figure has nothing on the beloved chain's eggscape: Cracker Barrel slings and sizzles around 160 million eggs annually.

So out of these millions and millions of yolks and whites, what determines how a guest places his or her order? One Cracker Barrel employee has a convincing hypothesis. "What we’ve always found, and I find so interesting as a chef, is however your mom cooked your eggs when you were growing up is typically how you like to eat them for the rest of your life," said Cammie Spillyards-Schaefer, Cracker Barrel's Vice President of Culinary and Menu Strategy, to TODAY Food.

Did you delight in fluffy piles of scrambled eggs as a little one? Were you an endless advocate Bubbe's soft-boiled mash? It could very well influence your order at the ole country store.
