Thanks Humuhumu, but I don't have but two choices here.... it's either a Publix or a Winn-Dixie and I check both of them out today and they were both priced the same. I'll just have to wait it out until the information and supply hits this area.

Uggh...my big box supermarket here still have them for .97 cents each. I'll be shopping around in the meantime. Good to hear that prices are returning to normal in some corners of the continent.

GentleHangman:

Not sure where in Stuart you live, but there is a Save-A-Lot at the crossroads of Monterey and Kanter (or Colorado....not sure where it changes names), they might be cheaper there.

limes are never a great buy in the grocery stores here anyhow- 4 for a dollar at best when they're on sale...

You're correct howlinowl, the limes were a cheaper at the Save-A-Lot . . . 3/$1.99. Nothing here in Florida happens as quickly as it does in California . . . we're always on a 'delayed reaction'. No matter, I'm well-stocked with Organic Lime juice so I'll survive.

Yeah, I still have a bottle of lime juice left, so I haven't checked here in SW Port St. Lucie. I do have a Wally Stupid Center (Walmart) and a Bravo within driving distance. Wally's produce leaves quite a bit to be desired (gotten rotten pinapples, apples.....don't ask about the papaya...picked one up and it let loose a swarm of fruit flies. Bravo's usually better quality and many times beats Wally's prices. Publix and Winn-Dixie quality is first rate, but at a premium price.
