    As long as it wasn’t in anything super gross.. like something that could get stuck in the setting, I think i wouldn’t even care what it was in!

    @petalpetal:  Not sure I’d be okay with it in a McChicken like in the photo but hidden in a homecooked meal would be lovely.  My FI hid my ring on a closed lily blossom in a bouquet of all-white flowers.  He knew I’d open up the bouquet and lay all the flowers out on the kitchen table to be rearranged.

    My fiance proposed by outting the ring in a little trinket box that looks like a French macaron that was in a box of real macarons, so it was kind of in food but not really.

    i loved it, I love baking and baked goods so it was perfect, I didn’t even realise the box wasn’t a real macaron at first, he said he had just gotten me the macarons as a little present.

    I would say yes in any case but I would prefer a food-less proposal. A proposal over dinner where he pulls the ring from his pocket, sure. I remember one of the Bees got proposed to with a Kinder Surprise egg and her FI hid the ring into the plastic container where they put the toy and I thought that was a fantastic proposal! But I’m not that enthusiastic about the ring actually touching the food. Luckily my SO hates the idea as well.

     @petalpetal:  

    Sorry the picture is so massive and sideways, don’t know how to fix it.

    Also the ring is just a cheap fake one he bought to propose with because he knew I would want to have a say in what my real one looks like.

    @MsMeow:  That’s awesome, I love kinder surprises! How did he get the ring in the little container, did he sneakily do it after she had eaten the chocolate?

    @petalpetal:  Not only is a McChicken just nasty but it takes zero effort to run through the drive thru then jam a ring into a bun.  For me, no matter how elaborate or simple the proposal, it should be from the heart and should require some effort on his behalf.  At least a homecooked meal takes time, planning and effort and really shows you how much he appreciates you.
