The product is the Kirkland Signature Black Label Nuts, which costs $47.99 per tub. According to a photo shared on Reddit, the container appears to include a mix of cashews, pistachios, and walnuts. Each tub weighs a whopping 4.5 pounds.

"If I see [it], I will definitely buy," commented one user, who went on to add that the ultra high-end nuts are different from the more affordable versions at Costco.

Another shopper offered useful insight on the higher price point: "The spec on these nuts are very specific. [It's] different than what is normally sold. For instance, the cashews used for this item make up 1% of crops in the whole world. They must meet a certain size and quality."

Speaking of cashews, one user added that the ones in the Kirkland Signature Black Label Nut mix are particularly big.
