The chink in the armor of $8.99 clementines appeared Monday at Costco in Hackensack, where 5 pounds of the Spanish citrus cost only $5.99.
Clementines started appearing a few weeks ago, but they were selling for $8.99 at Stop & Shop, H Mart and other stores.
Clementines from Morocco and other countries have shown up in the past, but the ones from Spain are consistently the best. They're easy to peel and sweet.
Will the price go any lower? Last year, ShopRite offered them for $4.99 with a store card. Stay tuned.
