Cracker Barrel's Facebook page doesn't usually get much fanfare

but that changed when the company said

this week that it was adding plant sausage patties to the restaurant chain's menu

Suddenly, customers flocked to the page, with some calling the decision

"pottery" and "garbage" and promising never to return.

As of Thursday morning, the Facebook post had attracted more than 7,000 comments

compared to the typical 100 or more reactions for Cracker Barrel's specific post.
