Cracker Barrel is the latest restaurant to jump on the plant-based protein train, and its customers are not happy about it one bit.

The Facebook post announcing the addition was met with some negative reaction and accusations that the restaurant was turning “woke.”

One person commented on the post, “You just lost the customer base, congratulations on being woke and going broke.”  Another added, “Don’t you ever try to push that cr** in my direction. Stick to the basics that made your franchise a success.”

However, another sarcastically responded, "I also hate the idea of a menu having options that I specifically don't want to eat! Restaurants should limit their options to exactly my specifications and nothing more! How dare they cater to anybody other than myself!"

The Impossible Sausage is now available on the restaurant’s Build Your Own Breakfast menu, according to the company's Facebook post.

Meanwhile, debate continues to be strong in the post's comment section.
