Limes seem to be back in good supply. I just took this photo in my local Save-A-Lot bargain grocery store - 10 nice Persian limes for a buck:

Yeah, I just noticed here in Texas they're $10/1 at my local supermarket as well. Yay! I actually ended up buying humongoloid ones from the Asian market though. They were 6/$1 but produce 1.5 oz or more per lime. So wonderful. You may have noticed in the "what are you drinking now" thread I've been imbibing quite a bit more frequently than usual.

And I thought 4 for a buck was a good deal at my local San Diego CA Ralphs! (lowest price there in a while). San Diego TC folks, where is the best lime deal you have seen? Mahalo!

Up in the Dallas area, I've been able to get 15/$1, recently, at various Mexican-style supermarkets. A few weeks back, it was 25/$1 - I actually got tired of counting. I'm a little choosey - you want the thin-skinned, juicy ones - so it's not just the first 25 I could grab. But by 18, I was tempted to just say, Eh, good enough. But I stuck it out to number 25!
Now, it's lemons that are pricey - 3/$1 or more.

In San Diego, Stumps on Voltaire in Point Loma had them 9 for $1, but I think they dropped it to 6 for $1 now. I will post when I see another great deal.

That's a lot of limes Limbo Lizard! What is up with the price of lemons? I need them to make authentic Mr. Bali Hai cocktails (thanks to the Bum sharing the recipe).
