300 Sandwich Couple Engaged After 256

They finally got engaged -- the 300 sandwich couple, that is. And it only took 256 sandwiches.

Stephanie Smith gained Internet fame -- and criticism -- last fall after a story in the New York Post revealed Smith as the woman behind the blog 300Sandwiches and her quest for an engagement ring from her bread-and-meat loving boyfriend.

At the time, critics called the story and the blog a gimmick for a book or movie deal.

The two were engaged in Barbados, according to a post on her blog on Tuesday.

So what was in number #256? It was called ”Kite Surf Fuel”: arepas with cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, tomato and onion. She made it shortly after arriving in Barbados to meet her boyfriend-now-fiancee Eric Schulte. Her blog said she was "working" on sandwich 257 -- the Fishkiller Fish Cutter when he proposed.

Smith's mission began in 2012 when, after preparing a turkey-and-swiss for Eric Schulte, he devoured it and told Smith, "Honey, you're 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!"

So will Smith continue the blog now that Schulte put a ring on it?

It remains unclear, but Smith better update the bio section of her blog.

"I will learn how to cook amazing food, we will learn more about each other, and hopefully my boyfriend will make good on his promise."

Next up? Perhaps 300 Baby Purees.
