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.
I love lobster. I wish I had so much lobster that when told thats for dinner I could say.....lobster again? Sigh.
I dont like fish, like shrimp and crab, but love lobster. I have a couple of nice tails in the freezer now that my neighbor in the marina gave me. He had a great lobster season this year.
Used a ‘Crab-Killer’ bullet....................
(Note to young FReepers: this was the Internet in the olden days before Facebook came along to screw it up).
Several family members of mine feel as you do....to each their own:)
Do not let those tails stay frozen more than a month or so!........They will be inedible! What a a waste!..............oh, the huge manatee!..................
ha! yes, good one....
Dude! Something is WRONG with you!

“We’re going to need a bigger pot”
Yes...I’m the odd man out when the family gets seafood. Thankfully, I enjoy clams & fish so I’m not a lost cause.
Beto would want to know where are the lobster turds so he can feed his wife ...
“Amazed watching family members chow down on it like its the best food they ever ingested.”
Lobster is a butter delivery system.
I also love lobster. Being in Nebraska.... well, we almost never have it. We went to Plymouth, MA a few years ago, and having landed late and got lost in Boston, ended up looking for a good lobster meal after 8:30 p.m. The first place we went, kind of a bar/tavern, didn’t have lobster. The second place.... A very nice restaurant, almost empty on a Sunday night, had AMAZING lobster dinners. We really enjoyed that!
Went to a seafood buffet just north of Williamsburg, VA last September. They had crab legs, but not so much for lobsters. Still got our money’s worth, I expect.
I always say that crab, lobster and shrimp are just an excuse to eat butter.
I had that problem when I lived in Hawaii. Wife would come home from the commissary and complain there was no room in the fridge and freezer because of "all this damn lobster!"
My favorite (after lobster, I suppose) is nice, meaty clams, breaded and fried, with tartar sauce. Next up would be some lovely scallops broiled in garlic butter.
“If you put enough garlic butter on a turd”

Why did I read that as “Seahawks fans”?
