These days, the term “key lime” seems to refer to a style more than it does an actual ingredient. As key lime purists, we plan on developing this site to help others like us sift through the morass of fake key lime goods, whether they be pies, drinks, cakes or candies. We intend to expose the frauds and reward the diligent purists.
This is a perfect example. Not one drop of key lime juice whatsoever, in fact the word “lime” doesn’t even appear in the list of ingredients.
We’re hoping to develop a grading system where we can assign a grade based on a number of criteria but first and foremost is that you can know whether a product tagged “key lime” actually contains key lime juice.
