Seafood lovers on Instagram and Reddit are freaking out over photos showing gigantic lobster claws, and those posting the pictures say they bought them at Costco stores.
This thing is unreal! one Instagram user wrote this week, sharing a couple of photos of a massive claw in Southern Californias Newport Beach. I mean, come on. Ive seen a few big claws at Costco before, but this ones crazy! We just had to get it.
Another Instagram user, sharing more pictures, said the gargantuan claw size makes me wonder how big the tail is. Photos of those Kirkland-branded claws show them selling for around $45 each at a Costco in mid-February.
The claws come in a range of weights but generally are between 2 and 7 pounds, INSIDER reports. Most of the lobster claw sightings at Costco stores have been in California, according to the publication.
Forget the claws. Gimme a huge tail.
Typical Costco merchandise. Huge quantity. ( I wonder who was the first person to even think of eating such a thing? )
Yeah man! I want t he tail from the beast that produced that claw...and a couple of pounds of butter.
Jonathan Swift ‘He was a bold man that first ate an oyster.’ ...................
Meat in the flippers on the end of the tail are IMO the sweetest on the crustacean.
What would a blizzard forecast be without a run to Costco for the 30-pack of toilet paper?
I can’t be the only one, but I find lobster absolutely tasteless. As in, water has more flavor & taste.
Amazed watching family members chow down on it like it’s the best food they ever ingested.
Too big for typical lobster trap...
If you put enough garlic butter on a turd......................
I don’t think that’s real...................
Where do those come from? Fukashima Bay?
SF Bay? Lots of ‘food’?...................
True. It gets deep-dipped in butter from what I’ve seen.
That is not a lobster claw. That is a Kraken’s claw.
IT’s really the butter and garlic they are tasting, they could eat a sponge with it just as tasty...............
Kraken don’t have claws.................
With that armor?
