Costco is selling massive lobster claws at some of their branches in California and for cheap, combining two things Asians everywhere can appreciate — seafood and a good deal.
Certain Costco branches are selling lobster claws that are larger than a grown man’s hands, according to FoodBeast.
While the claws vary in size, they tend to weigh about 2 to 7 pounds. Images posted on Instagram show claws weighing over 4 pounds selling for less than $50, a good deal considering market price for lobster runs from $12-$15 a pound.

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. 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 can’t promise an inside pic, they’re too anxious to eat this monster. I hope we have enough butter ?!… (check stories) . . . #lobster #lobsterclaw #shellfish #seafood #gobigorgohome #foodfinds #lobsters #butter #familydinner
It is not clear if the massive claws are being offered at other branches of Costco, but most of the posts on social media have been geotagged in California.
Nobody seems to know when Costcos in California started selling these huge claws.
Users on Reddit, however, mentioned that similar posts go as far back as around January 2019.
