The Solar Eclipse is happening and I need a snack! I spent a few hours driving around town on Friday looking for “Eclipse” stuff for today.

I went to twitter and mentioned how I was in search for them. I was tweeted by a friend, Lindsay Berry to go to Cracker Barrel and get them there. I made my way to the closest one before they closed! I was on a mission to get them.
