Chains expand robust morning menu with a classic American flavor for fall

CARPINTERIA, Calif. – October 9, 2013 – The leaves of the maple tree will soon be ablaze in seasonal colors, and the cooler weather is the perfect time to enjoy the flavors of the tree’s syrup at breakfast. With hundreds of years of delicious history, maple epitomizes fall … and America. After early settlers to the New World learned of maple syrup from Native Americans in the 17th century, they had to work long hours just to harvest one sweet taste. Starting today, Carl’s Jr. customers can experience that same maple goodness far more easily. And starting Monday, Oct. 14, Hardee’s customers get their chance. Both brands are introducing the new Maple Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit, infusing the flavors of maple and sausage for a sweet and savory breakfast combination epic enough for the history books.

Made with three maple sausage links, a slice of American cheese and egg, all piled inside a famous Hardee’s Made from Scratch Biscuit™, it is a culinary ode to fall.

“The combination of sweet and savory tastes has been part of a great breakfast at least since maple syrup became commercially available to the mass public at affordable prices in the early 20th century,” said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer for CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc., the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. “Our new Maple Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit continues that tradition by combining the sweetness of maple with the savoryness of breakfast sausage. Pile that with cheese and egg inside one of our famous Made from Scratch buttermilk biscuits and it’s not surprising that it was a hit with our guests when we tested it earlier this year. While the fall season may be the time people start to think more about maple syrup, this biscuit would be great any time of year.”

The Maple Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit is available at participating Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations for $2.69 as an entrée and $4.39 as a small combo. Prices may vary by location.

Beer ranks at #13 across our country’s beer consumption across all states which upsets their livers mostly:).  With most of the locals preferring a bottle of Templeton Rye among other brands, they also love a good glass of wine or two, with Iowa citizens celebrating their fondness for these two drinks in festivals such as Clear Lake Harvest Festival scheduled this fall.

Beer and wine have definitely stood out among other choice of drinks, and you can see how much it has been embedded in our history as seen in the infographic: http://financesonline.com/beer-vs-wine/.

The infographic is also rich with other wine and beer related facts, figures and trivia that every enthusiast of these drinks will find interesting, or even surprising:

  • Did you know that no one enjoys wine more than the folks in the Vatican City? They are considered to be the world’s biggest consumers of wine with 365 bottles a year per capita (which makes exactly one bottle a day!).
  • Those who favor wine will be thrilled to learn that California wines dominate the list of top wine brands in 2012
  • Beer fans can always boast the immense popularity of their favorite beverage as they discover that beer sells nearly 8,000 times more than wine and some archaeologists claim it may have even contributed to making our entire civilization possible!

Loebsack Statement on Vote on Nutrition Section of the Farm Bill PDF Print E-mail

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after the House voted on the separate nutrition section of the farm bill. Breaking with decades of precedence, House Republicans separated the agriculture and nutrition portions of the farm bill, which threatens its chance at being signed into law. The nutrition-only section put before the House today contained $40 billion in cuts to nutrition assistance programs. The splitting of the two sections was opposed by hundreds of agriculture groups, including the Iowa Farm Bureau.

“As someone raised by a single mother who relied in part on food stamps to put food on the table, I know first-hand that the cuts included in this legislation would have a draconian impact on many families who are still trying to recover. We cannot pull the rug out from under working families, children, seniors and veterans.

“Now that the latest political theater directed by the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party is over, it is long past time for Speaker Boehner to get serious about getting a farm bill done and go to conference with the Senate. I strongly opposed splitting the agriculture and nutrition sections of the farm bill because it threatens the chances of getting a farm bill signed into law. Our farmers, rural communities and economy are depending on a commonsense, practical farm bill. The farm bill helps keep our economy strong and creates jobs far beyond the farm. We must pass the farm bill without further delay.”

Loebsack has consistently fought to move a farm bill forward that can be signed into law. In July, he joined the Iowa delegation, and was one of only 24 Democrats to support the complete House version of the farm bill, which was voted down. He also introduced in the House the bipartisan Senate farm bill which was supported by both Senators Harkin and Grassley.
