Bob Evans and Ivar's Celebrate Obscure Food Holidays

In honor of National Banana Bread Day, visit any Bob Evans Restaurants in Detroit, Michigan, or Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Monday, Feb. 23 between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. and receive two free slices of Bob Evans homemade Banana Nut Bread with the purchase of any carryout beverage, while supplies last.

The next day, Feb. 24, Ivar’s will celebrate National Clam Chowder Day with a Buy-One-Get-One-Free Cup of Clam Chowder offer at all Ivar’s Restaurants (excluding stadiums).

Bob Evans Banana Nut Bread has been a popular menu item since it was introduced nearly eight years ago. Today, Bob Evans Banana Nut bread is loved by customers who order it for breakfast, as their bread choice with an entrée or salad, or purchase as a whole loaf to enjoy at home. A loaf of Bob Evans Banana Nut Bread is $4.99.

In 2008, Ivar’s produced so much chowder (more than 2.5 million one-cup servings in 2008 alone) that if you stacked 8-ounce cups one atop another, you could reach the summit of Mt. Rainier 153 times, or the tip of the Space Needle 3,593 times. In addition, Ivar’s Chowder has won many accolades including the 2008 People’s Choice Award at the Seattle Maritime Festival’s 12th Annual Chowder Cook-off.
