Would make an exception to my no food-as-props/restaurant proposals ban for this:
Posts from the ‘I Do(nut)’ Category
“Visit your nearest Carl’s Jr. and propose your Valentine with an Onion Ring in a quirky way.”
I think I’d want more than 20% off for this.
There’s likely a lame bae pun in this, but I’m just going to give the facts: Green Bay Packer James Jones proposed to his now-wife using Cheddar Bay Biscuits as a romantic foil, as one should.
I would’ve preferred the ring to be inserted into one of the baked goods rather than just placed in the basket. And now you know my preferences, if anyone was getting an idea or anything.
Staged or not (I kind of think not), being driven to non-joyful tears by an engagement ring in a McDonald’s chicken sandwich is the only rational reaction I’ve ever seen to such an uncalled for food-based proposal.

We can all agree this would be more romantic if the ring was oozing out of a molten chocolate cake (heck, even the new cinnamon version), right?

No word on whether kelp, rhubarb, pine or ramps were involved in the proposal. If it were up to me, I would've had the ring slipped onto a duck neck.
I’ve been patiently waiting for this day to come, the ultimate I Do(nut) moment.
For example, there was the man who wanted to present his
fiancée an engagement ring inside a cronut. Unfortunately, they'd sold out by
the time he reached the front of the line. "He came back the next
day," Mr. Ansel marveled. "He was first in line. He delayed his
proposal because he wanted to get a cronut." [WSJ via Eater NY]

Sometimes I like to feign horror (ok, I'm not pretending) over that special breed of public proposal: the good ol' ring in the food surprise. But I love this crazy, semi-related twist. Finding a pearl in Carrabba's mussels and using it as an anniversary ring gem? Perfect.
