If there were ever a reason to run - not walk - to Costco, it’s because stores are selling a gigantic 3-pound lobster claw. No, not a 3-pound lobster. A 3-pound lobster claw. Which raises the question: How much does the whole lobster weigh?

To put this in perspective, an entire lobster weighs anywhere from 1 pound to 4 pounds, with an average Maine lobster coming in at 1.25 to 1.5 pounds. That’s the whole lobster. This claw available at Costco is 3 pounds all on its own. Just let that sink in.

Instagram user @julesfood posted a story on the lobster claw and said that it was already cooked, so she warmed it up on the grill. She noted that it was “very difficult to get out of the thick shell,” but “it still had nice lobster flavor” regardless of being a bit tougher than regular lobster claws. At the time she bought it, the giant lobster claw was on sale for $9.99 per pound. She weighed the empty shell and it was about 1.5 pounds, making half of those 3 pounds meat and the other half shell.

The next time you want to treat yourself to a nice dinner, make Costco your first choice and pick up a claw (and invite me over, please).
