Woman Gifted 26lb Wheel of Cheese on a Date and People Say He's a Keeper

Men have been known to present their dates with bouquets of flowers, chocolates and even jewellery but one guy decided to buck the trend and opt for some cheese instead.

But it wasn't your run-of-the-mill block of cheddar, after one woman was bemused to receive an entire truckle of cheese weighing a whopping 26 pounds (lbs).

A woman, called Elizabeth, revealed her little sister had been out on a date with a farmer, and returned home with a giant wheel of cheese as a souvenir.

Elizabeth shared a photo of her sibling posing with her gift on Twitter, alongside a snap of the food wrapped in yellow packaging, which was so big she needed to carry it home in a cardboard box.

She wrote: "My little sister went on a date with a young farmer tonight. He decided to gift her a 12kg wheel of cheese...?"

Elizabeth later added: "Really based westcountry moment tb."

Her tweet racked up hundreds of thousands of likes, as people instantly made dairy-based puns, while insisting the man was a "keeper".

Maukita tweeted: "Please tell me this farmer gave her a note with the cheese that read "that was a nice 1st date, we should fondue it again!"

While Paul quipped: "Sounds like a grate gruyere. Really gouda of him to give her that, he must have been fondue of her. But seriously, that sounds brielliant. She'll never be provolone again with that much cheese. Just make sure he has her parmesan before he sends any more."

And Rosebud joked: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to diss a Brie?"

Cardoso simply stated: "He's a keeper!"

Elizabeth also got in on the cheese-based gags, later adding after her post went viral: "100k likes on the cheese tweet, my greatest acheesement."

And a few people pointed out the value of the giant wheel of cheese.

Nicola Palmer revealed: "A 12kg wheel of cheese !! Marry him, Marry him NOW !! You know how much that costs ?? £500+. I'm pretty sure he likes you."

Doing some more research, The Hallow ten added: "From What I can find... Might be wrong... and Depends on country and What type of cheese... But on average 12 kilo worth of cheese, is about... 108$ That is NOT cheap."

While the exact type of cheese wasn't confirmed, a similar 26lb wheel of Dutch maasdam is currently on sale for $239.88.

Elizabeth jokingly shared a shot of a page from a "Spells, Charms and Incantations" book, which includes the line: "You may fascinate a woman by giving her a piece of cheese."

She captioned it: "It really works."
