Has anyone seen any Mandarin oranges in the Danforth- Victoria Park area in Toronto this season? I would, of course, prefer Japanese Mandarin orance, having being used to them in my childhood in Western Canada, but those are virtually impossible to get in Toronto. But I normally can find Chinese Manadarins. But this year they seem to be in very short supply. I was able to find 3 boxes at Valumart at Danforth and Woodbine yesterday, but that will only last me a week.
Is there a Loblaws in your area? I've been to two different Loblaws in the past week where they had 5lb boxes of Chinese Mandarins for sale, so I'd assume it's a corporate-wide buying decision.
I grew up in BC, and Clementines will just never make it Christmas for me. Fortunately, I'm headed home next week, where I anticipate many, many mandarins to make the season bright.
