For me, the magic of a great piece of key lime pie comes from the juxtaposition of real, lip smacking tartness of the limes and the thick, creamy texture of the filling.
I consider myself somewhat of a key lime pie connoisseur. Unfortunately, I have tried many an unsatisfying slice of the stuff.
Sometimes, the texture is just wrong. Key lime pie should be dense and thick, not fluffy. Sometimes it is just too sweet. The tartness of the limes should be the centerpiece of the dessert, what really makes it stand out from the crowd.
I have never in my life had a more satisfying slice of heaven than the key lime pie that I ate from the Florida Key Lime Pie Company.
The vibrant flavor of fresh key lime juice challenged my tastebuds as I put the first bite in my mouth. Next impressions, satisfyingly creamy texture, followed by the pleasant taste and mouth feel of a nice, buttery graham cracker crust.
It all melded in my mouth into one big bite of Florida sunshine. It has been a long time since I ate a dessert that made me smile. This one did.
The Florida Key Lime Pie Company has a retail store located in the historic village of Cocoa Beach Florida . It is also served in a number of restaurants in the area and if you aren’t going to be in the area any time soon, you can have it shipped right to your door!
