(Newser) – If you're more interested in being memorable than romantic, and happen to have a significant other that you'd like to spend the rest of your life with, you may want to propose to her ... at Pizza Hut. Because for a mere $10,010, the Hut promises to show you and your would-be fiancee a good time, Eater reports. Included in the package: limo service, a ruby engagement ring, flowers, a personal fireworks display, a photographer, a videographer, and the piece de resistance: a $10 Pizza Hut "Dinner Box" with a medium pizza, breadsticks, and 10 cinnamon sticks with sweet icing cup. (Because what bride-to-be doesn't want to celebrate her proposal by inhaling a pound of sugary dough?)

"If we're able to fit pizza, breadsticks, and dessert into one box for only $10, why stop there?" Pizza Hut's CMO asked rhetorically in a press release about the package. "Our customers want the best of everything, from their food to memorable life experiences. So we decided to make one of those experiences—the marriage proposal—second-to-none and offer it at right alongside the new $10 Dinner Box." But hurry: Only 10 of these dream evenings are available, and they'll only be sold until Valentine's Day.
