McDonald’s and Burger King Wish You a Happy and Groovy Valentine’s Day!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day once again, which means love is in the air. Well, love and greasy fried crap. So to celebrate Fast Food Love, American Style, let’s check out this gallery of Valentine’s Day cards from McDonald’s and Burger King. Up first is a set from the McDonaldland gang, circa 1973/74.

Second place to a clown? Ouch!

If I were you, I’d do what the scary purple mass tells you.

“Give me that Filet-O-Fish or I’ll run you through!”
Vintage McDonald's Officer Big Mac Valentine's Day card, circa 1973/74
Fact: Office Big Mac’s heart also comes with special sauce.

For an even groovier Valentine’s Day experience let’s take a left turn to the Burger King Kingdom, where the visage of the Burger King beams at us from this set of postcards. These were produced in 1972 and feature a clean-shaven, decidedly un-scary King.
