A massive cheese wheel was
wheeled out for customers at a store in
Wisconsin yesterday.


The wheel weighed a whopping
34-hundred-36 pounds.


It was made to help celebrate the
business' seventh anniversary.


Workers spent much of the day
carving it into bite-sized pieces so
everyone could get a taste of the big
cheese.
