Giant tubs of macaroni and cheese may have met their match.

There's a new super-size product at Costco – giant lobster claws.

Shoppers have been sharing photos of the massive crustaceans on Instagram, some shown with Costco's Kirkland brand on the label.

According to FoodBeast , the claws reportedly vary in size and weigh around 2 to 7 pounds. The shoppers sharing photos have been mainly from California, FoodBeast reported.

On Monday, Instagram user @julesfood shared a photo of a 3-pound claw, which tagged Newport Beach, California.

"I’ve seen a few big claws at Costco before, but this one’s crazy!" the post said. "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 hope we have enough butter."

Costco did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Instagram user @wine_country_foodies shared a photo Feb. 7 with a 4.7-pound package for $46.95 or $9.99 a pound.

On its website, Costco sells a six-count of live Maine lobsters weighing 1.25 pounds each for $129.99.

Costco is known for selling super-sized products.

In January, the wholesaler sold out of Chef’s Banquet Macaroni and Cheese Storage Bucket, a 27-pound bucket with 180 servings of the comfort food.

On Wednesday, the product was available and selling for $89.99.

It also has a 20-year shelf life and comes with six 30 serving zip-sealed pouches of Cheddar Sauce Mix and six 30 serving zip-sealed pouches of Elbow Macaroni Pasta.
