Costco Unveils Colossal 1.3kg Chocolate Christmas Stocking
Getting your home ready for Christmas can be a pretty exciting process.
Whether you enjoy putting up or decorating the tree, wrapping presents or getting your Xmas lunch ready, there's loads of stuff that can get you in the mood.
Some families (even if their kids are all grown up) like to hang stockings and fill them with gifts or sweets to have a bit of fun.
But pretty much every stocking in Australia will pale in comparison to the one being sold by Costco.
The wholesale retailer has unveiled its 1.3 kilogram 'Giant Christmas Stocking' and it is absolutely monster in size.
It contains more than 100 chocolates and sweets, including Cadbury Dairy Milk, Mars, Kitkat, Milky Way, Lindt balls, Hershey's white chocolate wrapped in the festive plastic parcel and Trolli lollies.
According to the Daily Mail, the stocking contains a whopping 16,032 calories (67,290kj), so you definitely shouldn't eat this on your own, otherwise you'd be suffering from some serious sugar overload.
If you'd bought all the chocolates individually, no doubt you spend a pineapple or two, however this bad boy will only set you back $29.99.
Unsurprisingly, it's caused a bit of a stir, with some people worried that it shouldn't be marketed with children.
Sharon Witt told FEMAIL: "This is just ridiculous. I think it's over the top and inappropriate particularly when it's targeted at children.
"The only way this would be acceptable is if it was a gift that was meant to be shared with the entire extended family."
No doubt Costco will be flogging the stocking right up until Christmas to give people something else to hang over the fireplace this year. Just be careful about scoffing it all in one go because that would do some damage on your body.
