The wholesale retailer Costco is known for its super-cheap pizzas and hot dogs, but there’s much more to the store than its famed food court.

As a bulk retailer, it sells giant amounts of just about everything, and sometimes the portions can get a bit ridiculous. Whether you’re looking for candy, pantry staples, or even furniture, the selection is almost guaranteed to be supersized.

Read on to see some of the most gigantic portions you can get at Costco.
