Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love, and that means a lot of romance is on the menu. Candlelit dinners are being planned, flowers are being ordered, and, for some couples, someone may just be popping the question.

A proposal is one of the most meaningful moments in a couple’s time together. When that big question is asked, it should be at a spot that is especially important to that couple — like where they met or where they shared their first date. If that spot happens to be Cracker Barrel for you (or a couple you know!), you may be in for a lucky engagement gift — especially if you love the chain’s Southern fare enough to eat a whole lot of it while planning your wedding.

Cracker Barrel is ushering in Valentine’s Day with a contest geared towards exactly those couples who see the chain as their own special place. The  “I Said ‘Yes’ at Cracker Barrel” contest will award five newly engaged couples free Cracker Barrel for a year. But there’s a catch: The engagement has to happen at Cracker Barrel!

To enter the contest, make sure to involve a friend or friendly server who can capture the proposal on video between Friday, February 10 and Thursday, February 16 at a Cracker Barrel. Then, take that romantic video and post it to Instagram, being sure to mention @crackerbarrel, and the tag #ISaidYesAtCrackerBarrel and #Contest, explaining why that is where the big moment occurred. 

For couples not ready to take that big step, Cracker Barrel is also offering a promotion with slightly less romantic pressure. Those eating at the chain between February 10 and 14 will get a free dessert with select entrées.

Need some desserts to have at home to celebrate the big engagement? This single-serve cookie cheesecake will make you fall in love with each other all over again.
