Lobster is the superior shellfish — the star of surf and turf and the ideal accompaniment to a cup of melted butter. So of course, when some people noticed that Costco started selling giant 7-pound lobster claws, they immediately took it to Instagram.
According to Business Insider, Costco's claws actually range from 2 to 7 pounds in size and are reportedly being sold in California. Instagram user @julesfood came across a 3-pound claw at a Costco near Newport Beach.
To compare, an average sized dinner lobster is 1 to 1.5 pounds. Lobsters tend to get bigger as they age, hence why it's generally rare to find them at this size. And if the claw is this big, imagine how big the whole lobster was!
