The Key Lime Pie Reviews: Key Lime Pie Factory

The Key Lime Pie Factory is the very place, according to the plaque next to the entrance, where the iconic dessert was first conceived in 1856. By American standards, this is positively prehistoric. If questioned, the proprietors would probably insist that it had been made with dinosaur milk by pilgrims donning starched aprons and white bonnets, outcast from the Olde Worlde for their…erm… pieous beliefs.

The verdict?

As you can see, this is one fine-looking Key lime pie. Akin to a catwalk model of the 90’s everything’s in perfect proportion – crust, filling, cream topping. Consistency and texture are just how they ought to be. Couldn’t fault it, try as I might. Hmmm…. if pushed at gun point, I’d whisper through clenched teeth that, perhaps, it was a teensy weensy itsy bitsy too tart for me…

My rating: 4.5 out of 5.

    I can get on board with this pie. Nearly naked except for a dainty, modest covering of whipped cream.
    With all these key lime pie talk, I’m getting a hankering for Steve’s Key Lime here in Brooklyn. I’ll have to go soon.

    now do you know what I like about your reviews? Well four “S’s” come to mind – They are simple and short – but also worded with seasoned experience. And filled with your unique style – with your play on words –

    “it was a teensy weensy itsy bitsy too tart…”

    but really love the succinctness most –
