After 257 sandwiches, boyfriend pops the question!
UNDATED (Derek Drake) -- A couple who went viral several months ago is making headlines again.
Stephanie Smith, a reporter for the NYPost's "Page Six" made her boyfriend, Eric Schulte, a turkey sandwich in June 2012. After he tasted it, he joked, "Honey, you're 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!"
She pledged to make him 300 sandwiches and he vowed to pop the question!
So she blogged her entire quest to woo him with bread and meat creations. The blog sparked a broad debate on gender relations with some calling Schulte's "joke" as chauvinistic, but the couple insisted it was just for fun, noting they often did much of the meal prep together.
But last week, while vacationing in Barbados, she was working on sandwich number 257 when Schulte surprised her with a proposal!
Of course she documented the whole thing on her blog, and again for the NYPost.
What do you think of their sandwich journey? Was it chauvinistic or a unique relationship building tool that lead to a happy ending? Let us know on our Facebook page!
