Calling all cheese lovers!

If you're a fan of fromage, you can thank Costco for making your fantasies come true. That's because you can now buy an enormous 72-pound Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese wheel. Yes, that's cheese that weighs as much as a person.

Can't imagine what you'd do with 72 pounds of cheese? We have some thoughts.

You can eat it all by yourself. (We don't advise that.) You can set it up as a delicious and super classy décor piece at home, or you can throw a massive party and invite the whole neighborhood over for some cheese. Just make sure they BYOB wine. This wheel will feed a lot of people.

You're probably thinking this can't be real, but it is. Costco Deals Online posted a photo of the cheese wheel on Instagram, and there's confirmation on Costco's website listing its details and cost.

The wheel of Parm has been aged 24 months and was imported from Italy, so it's pretty legit and luxurious. The only bummer? It's also $900 dollars, and supplies are limited. If you want in on this cheese biz, you'd better act now.

There are some positive reviews from cheese-loving Costco shoppers:

"We purchased this so we could have a flaming wheel of cheese for Christmas Eve dinner. It worked perfectly. We still have at least 60 lbs. left. So I guess we'll be having some more parties!"

"Bought this as a surprise for my son's wedding reception (he is a fiend for the stuff). With the help of YouTube instructions and the proper tools and his good buddy, he and his brother cracked open the Parm in front of family and friends, to great applause and cheers."

And one man who was a bit confused totally enjoyed it anyway:

"Got this as a gift. What the heck am I supposed to do with all this cheese!?"
