SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – The newest super-size product at Costco? Giant lobster claws!
By the sizes of these claws, you’re going to need tubs on tubs of butter to accommodate.
Photos of the giant claws have been shared recently on Instagram.
On Monday, Instagram user @julesfood shared a photo of a 3-pound claw, tagging a Costco in Newport Beach.
“I’ve seen a few big claws at Costco before, but this one’s crazy!” she said. “We just had to get it. It might be 1/2 it’s weight in shell, but worth it already. The family’s had their fun photo ops, now it’s going on the grill … I hope we have enough butter.”
Ginormous “3 lb” LOBSTER CLAW !!!… Have you EVER ?!… This thing is unreal ! I mean, come on. I’ve seen a few big claws at Costco before, but this one’s crazy ! We just had to get it.

According to FoodBeast, the claws reportedly vary in size and weigh around 2 to 7 pounds.
The shoppers sharing photos have been mainly from California, the publication said.
Instagram user @wine_country_foodies shared a photo from a Costco in Cotati showing a 4.7-pound package for $46.95 or $9.99 a pound.
This isn’t the first time Costco is offering shoppers a giant-sized product.
We also told you a few months back about those sold-out buckets of Chef’s Banquet Macaroni and Cheese Storage Bucket.
Last we checked, those large buckets are back in stock!
