Update: Costco King Crab Price Increase
Quick update on a Costco King Crab price increase…as of May 2022 the current crab legs price in-store continues to be 42.99, that’s an increase of $3/lb from the latest price update we posted for New Year’s Eve 2022. The individual packages of crab legs hover around 2lbs each (or about $80 give or taken ten bucks).
We reported the Wild Cooked Red King Crab pricing in both November and December of 2021, and Costco was then charging $39.99 per pound. That represents an increase of $3 per pound. The price went to $42.99 per lb for crab legs at Costco in March of this year.
The price of Wild Caught Red King Crab Legs at Costco is still a great price in our opinion, and makes a great special celebratory meal idea for a number of the upcoming holidays and such:
- Mother’s Day Brunch
- Father’s Day Dinner
- Memorial Day
- Easter Dinner
King Crab Legs also fit well within low carb, keto, gluten free diets. As a low carbohydrate and lean protein, crab legs pack a lot of punch in the delicious department!
