I'd use clementines.

Oh, my darlin', Clementines! I'll give it a try. Oddly, I can buy everything from patio furniture to fine wines in my mega grocery store but no kumquats, which are in season. Hmmm. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for helping answer this, Amanda! Really appreciate it. Clementines should be fine - but won't be quite the same as kumquats since they have a tart/sweet combo with the pulp/skin. Would love to hear how the clementines work for you! I know kumquats can be hard to fine at times :-(
