Web Exclusive: Cracker Barrel soon available at a grocery store near you?

Posted: Updated:

(CBS/CNN) - Cracker Barrel may soon start dishing up its southern comfort food at a grocery store near you.  The Tennessee based chain has reached an agreement to sell some of its food products at other retail outlets.  Things like ham, bacon, lunch meat, glazes and jerky will be sold under the Cracker Barrel name.  Cracker Barrel already produces products like pancake and corn muffin mixes, cobbler filling and syrup, but those items are only available at cracker barrel stores and on its web site. No word on when the new products will hit store shelves.

If you're a fan of the Blackberry, get ready because it is getting a makeover.  The company will unveil an upgraded smartphone Wednesday.  Research in Motion says the new Blackberry 10 system will offer a speedy browser and the ability to keep work and personal identities separate on the same phone.  The Blackberry has lost ground in recent years to apple's iPhone and Google's Android-driven devices.

Barnes and Noble will continue to downsize.  The book store will close about 20 stores a year over the next decade.  There are currently about 700 stores in the U.S.  The nation's largest bookstore has been facing tough competition from online retailers and discounters.

It is official.  The maker of Little Debbie is going to buy Drake's cakes. McKee foods offered Hostess 27 and a half million dollars for the brands that include Devil Dogs, Funny Bones and Yodels.  A judge still has to approve the sale.  A buyer for Twinkies and other Hostess Cakes is expected to be announced soon.
