If there's one thing Costco is known for, it's the discounts. But every now and then, the retailer drops an expensive product that makes shoppers do a double take. For example, the warehouse recently added high-end nuts to its shelves, and people are curious as heck.

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.
If you're hosting a New Year's Eve gathering this year, it's worth checking out if your local Costco has these nuts in stock. We could see them working well as party snacks or in a charcuterie board.
Similarly, if you're a nut aficionado, you'll probably enjoy this product. Be sure to call your Costco warehouse to see if it's available; its item number is 1473000.
