  1. I love key lime pie, and would love this ice cream! I agree that ice cream can be enjoyed year round... even during a "lovely" cold Canadian winter. ;-)

  2. I love the green speckles in this ice cream! We do eat ice cream year round at our house too!

  3. Oh I bet it's to die for. Isn't that caramel topping? I mix caramel with whipped cream to top my key lime pie. It's not overpowering but really compliments the tartness of the key limes. Great Site!
