Know anyone who is thinking of popping the question on Valentine's Day? If you do...or it is you...you should find the closest Cracker Barrel and do it there. Throw rose petals on the table, eat a few biscuits, and stick that ring in a piece of strawberry cheesecake because 5 people who propose there are scoring big!
You Could Score More Than A Spouse If You Propose at a Cracker Barrel
My family is a little bit obsessed with Cracker Barrel. My inlaws used to live in Rockford, Illinois and every trip we made to see them from Rochester, Minnesota meant a pitstop at the Wisconsin Dells' Cracker Barrel. My daughter even told us once that the only colleges she would consider would be ones that were located in a town with a Cracker Barrel. #TrueStory
I heard this morning that Cracker Barrel was doing something special for people who were ready to pop the question so I did some digging and finally found the info on their website.
For those searching for the perfect place to surprise their partner with a proposal, look no further. The “I Said ‘Yes’ at Cracker Barrel Valentine’s Day Contest” will award five lucky couples who “pop the question” at any Cracker Barrel location nationwide with free Cracker Barrel for a year. From Feb. 10-16, couples who post their proposal video at Cracker Barrel and include a caption on why they decided to propose at the iconic restaurant will be entered for a chance to win*. - Cracker Barrel website
