"Hi all, I’m in from out of town and read in one thred that Publix has some of the best Key Lime pie in Orlando. I was wondering if it freezes well? Thinking about grabbing a couple before I head fly home and would love if I could freeze one to save for future. Thanks for any advice."
They come from the freezer, so yes. But your expected travel time may result in it being defrosted anyways.
Publix key lime pie is ok, not that great if you have had the real thing from the Florida Keys. Key lime is very tart and piquant. The Publix version is very sweet and has a more bland taste.
Buy some Kermit's Key Lime Juice while you're here and bring that back. Make your own, it's very easy.
If you want a great local Key Lime Pie, check out Sister Honey’s near the downtown area. The second best I’ve ever had, and everything else they make is just as good.
You can specifically ask the bakery to save one in the freezer for you. It'll last a little longer than the ones that have come out of the cooler, but the toppings probably won't stay fresh when you take it out to eat.
Have you tried it? I love key lime pie but Edward's makes a decent one. It's a matter of taste, but I don't think Publix's key lime pie is worth the trouble lol.
Do you have any other good ideas for this? Just share here!
