Triple shot Friday – Key Lime Pie Talk (part 2)

This is a follow-up to last month’s Key Lime Pie Talk post (HERE).

I threw together a mini video of our “key lime package” that came in the mail – and synced it to Chesney’s “Key Lime Pie” song.

I actually made it as a family scrapbook video with a shorter version to share here. Special thanks to my son, C.3, for taking some of the pics and for helping to open things up.

 

 

Also, for triple shot Friday this week, here are ratings and tidbits about 3 different brands with “Key Lime” desserts (and please note we are NOT paid to review any products – this is just opinion for fun),

ONE: Key Lime Pie Co. (website is HERE)

side note – slight issue I have with this pie is that the card says award winning recipe – yet in the show it says they changed this recipe to use an original that was more natural – so it seems “wrong” to reference “award winning” if this was a for a recipe that was tossed.

TWO: Edwards Key Lime from the Grocer’s freezer…

  1. Mmm. Loves me my key lime pie. However, I don’t think I would like chocolate covered, frozen key lime pie bars. And I’ve had The Cheesecake Factory’s key lime pie cheesecake and am not a big fan. It’s too rich, too thick, too heavy. I may just have to order me up one of those pies from the Key West Key Lime Pie Company.

    1. well said Doobs – “too rich, too thick, too heavy” – and a few bites of that dense and tasty richness goes a long way – with some nice black coffee….. m.

      and if you do order some from the Key Lime Pie company, (to have delivered by your “mail-man – mail-woman- mail carrier clerk person…” ha!) well they do not have the same package deal that we got last month. I am SO disappointed to see that the “profit deal” now only comes with ONE pie and 8 bars – they switched out the second pie for a black t-shirt with a P-3 on it!!

      The former “profit deal” we got was awesome – it was TWO pies and 8 bars – and while it was a spring splurge for sure – well it was still a packed box and had enough to share. (i.e. My son’s friend was here on the second day we enjoyed this – and he was like “That’s really from Key West??? – My grandmom lives there…” and then he shyly asked- “Is their enough for me to have a piece?” – and I gladly said, “Absolutely….” – and there was enough – and that was because of the two pies –

      So really???? – switching out an entire pie for a “black” t-shirt (to then advertise for them?) well this has me baffled – if anything -leave the two pies and take out those “ingredient laden frozen bar things” (that feel like popsicles) and give us a Florida themed item that more people would want – but with older kids and years of stuff coming and going – the very LAST thing I would want coming through the front door is a T-Shirt- (((especially with a logo….also, it is likely cheap cotton with an ill fitting neck – and for the cheap cots of a t-shirt – it should be thrown in free and not replacing a pie…)))

      so if you do order one – keep checking on the changing deals – 🙂

    1. yes, I guess if you use persian limes you are making “lime Pie” – and it is citrus-y and nice, but has to be yellowish key lime so thane that unique tanginess…. and I am sure as you know, when you have the real thing you notice the difference….. but plain lime pie is good too….

    1. Thanks Sue – and I thought I sent some with that bread – I will need to check on it – ha! and I think key lime pie is more “athlete” friendly too – has some antioxidants with those calories, not too much fat – and not too heavy for sport.
