Unless you're lactose intolerant, is there even a concept of 'too much cheese?' A Michigan grocery store is ready to challenge that by putting a 4500-pound block of cheddar up for sale.
Horrock's Market in Battle Creek posted an image of the huge cheddar cheese that may just give you the Mickey sweats if you eat too much of it.
That's a lot of cheeseburgers. We did the math on this year-old aged medium sharp cheddar and found that with 4500 pounds at $5.99 a pound, that's $26,955 if you want to wheel the entire wheel out of Horrock's.
Jim in the comments nails it:
Hello, MSUFCU? I would like to take out a $27,000 loan?
OK, now hear me out. I want to buy 4,500 lbs of cheese. Don't ask me why...
