Still on the subject of those seedless miniature tangerines from Spain, it seems we’ve got a little price war going on in Westport. 
Both Shaw’s (Friday) and Stop & Shop (today) just lowered their price of a 5-lb box to $4.99.  Ready to counter, Stew Leonard?
Here’s an even more interesting tidbit: the grocer at Stop & Shop confided to me that he’s paying $6.50 for the carton he selling this week for $4.99.  It’s what’s known as a “loss leader.”
So go for it.
