Just a quick Thanksgiving Holiday 2021 update on the Alaskan Red King Crab at Costco- wanted to let you know that crab legs are now available defrosted in small and large quantities in the meat department refrigerated cases. Looking to order crab legs from Costco? Click here.
2021 King Crab Legs at Costco – Thanksgiving
Small bundles of the wild caught, cooked Alaskan Red King Crab at Costco are $39.99 and most packages of crab legs were right around 3-3.5 lbs or about $130-$140 dollars each.
Full size 10lb boxes of the wild caught, cooked Alaskan Red King Crab Legs at Costco are Costco Item Number 39273 and are sold both defrosted (alongside the small bundles of King Crab Legs mentioned above) and frozen alongside the other frozen shellfish including scallops, shrimp, dungeness crab legs, langostino (and sometimes lobster when in season). These king crab legs are $1 per pound less at $38.99, or about $390 per box.
Please Note: We did not see the 10lb boxes labeled for a defrost date. Typically, Costco sells them the same day as they are defrosted, but please ask someone in the meat department before you buy them! Nothing will ruin your crab leg dinner for the holidays like stinky spoiled shellfish! Please refer to the full post about buying crab legs defrosted versus frozen…we have lots of opinions on this topic.
10 pounds of King Crab Legs will feed a lot of people, and we’re happy to see that it’s not leaving a ton of money on the table to grab smaller bundles.
