After outrage, Cracker Barrel to sell 'Duck Dynasty' items again
Country store and restaurant Cracker Barrel filled display stands once more with "Duck Dynasty" merchandise on Sunday, only two days after removing the products in the wake of a cast member's anti-gay comments and his subsequent suspension from the A&E show.

"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," a letter from Cracker Barrel posted on its website said.

Cracker Barrel announced on Friday in a Facebook post that stores stopped selling "Duck Dynasty" paraphernalia "which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation."

Cracker Barrel never stopped selling Duck Commander merchandise, which is also affiliated with the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty. "We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores," the post specified.

Duck Dynasty merchandise is A&E branded, while Duck Commander products — including "Miss Kay's Duck Commander Kitchen Cookbook" and a "Duck Commander Devotional Book" — aren't produced by the television network. Both franchises offer mugs, t-shirts and hats and the like.

Judge blocks Cracker Barrel from grocery shelf
Grocery sales are part of Cracker Barrel's strategy to expand its brand beyond its 600-plus restaurants and stores. The chain has signed a licensing agreement with John Morrell & Co. for ham, bacon and other meats.

But food giant Kraft Foods (KRFT) is suing to block the move, saying it would infringe on Kraft's trademarked Cracker Barrel brand cheese and confuse consumers.

In his eight-page ruling, Gettleman agreed and said Kraft had a strong case.

"The court finds that Kraft is likely to prevail on the merits of its trademark infringement and unfair competition claims," the order said. "Kraft need only show a 'better than negligible' chance of success on the merits, and has more than sufficiently carried this burden."

Gettleman said Kraft's trademark was "indisputably strong" because it has been in use since 1957, more than a decade before the first Cracker Barrel restaurant opened in 1969, and generates more than $130 million in annual sales.


"We are convinced the marketplace understands and recognizes the differences in the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store brand and Kraft's Cracker Barrel cheese. We are not selling cheese or any cheese-related products."
