Granted, your idea (or, more importantly, your Valentine's idea) of a romantic Valentine's Day meal probably doesn't include the words Burger King--however, in Israel, they're hoping a Valentine's Day promotion will change your mind.

There are 3 Rockford/Loves Park-area Burger Kings (according to a quick Google search); 1138 East State Street, 1804 East Riverside Blvd, and 909 West Riverside Blvd. After placing a few calls this morning, I quickly determined that none of the BKs around here are planning on following Burger King Israel's lead in offering "adult meals complete with an adult toy."

No, you didn't read that last bit incorrectly.

From USA Today:

Burger King locations in Israel are offering “Adult Meals” from 6 p.m. until close on Valentine’s Day. The meals come fully-equipped with two Whoppers, two French fries, two beers and an “adult toy.” The only catch? You must be 18 or older to purchase the meal.

You may be asking what kind of adult toy is included with the "Adult Meals?"

The adult toy options appear to be a feather duster, head massager, or a blindfold, according to a YouTube video posted by the ad agency Leo Burnett Israel.


So there you have it. Here in the Rockford area, unless you're willing to pony up for some airfare to Israel, it looks like you'll just have to say it with flowers, chocolate, or a dinner out that doesn't offer an adult toy option on the dessert menu.
