Shortage over? That would be great! I'm celebrating by making a new batch of Falernum tonight. I, also, discovered 5-pound bags of limes at Costco on Sunday.

That's awesome. Probably the best price I've seen so far anytime anywhere.

I made Mai Tais over the weekend. My limes at this time were kinda small and more tart than what I like. But it worked. And I'm sure we'll be getting consistently more of the normal size limes as the situation continues to get back to normal.

I'm at work right now - wish I could be sipping a nice cold Mai Tai.

Wow,

In Mesa AZ, bought limes today at a Safeway Supermarket, 4 for a buck.
Sign said they were from Mexico. They were larger than I have seen in a while.

Somebody is making money.

Better than a conflicted lime, is it not?

Both of my local WalMarts were out of lemons this week... the next citrus shortage?

Limes are cheap again, but the quality is very poor, imo. I would gladly pay a dollar a lime for better quality at the moment. Pain in the ass trying to adjust my Mai Tai recipe for the limes we've been getting. As a result, I've been drinking a lot of Hurricanes instead.

And the limes I'm getting now seem more tart than in the past. But maybe it's just me? I'm finding myself upping the "sweet" a bit more to compensate.
