Edy's Key Lime Pie Yogurt Blend

The great thing about today's review is that I had totally forgotten about this product. Part of me thinks I've seen it on a rare occasion (aka years ago), another part of me thinks I've never seen it. Maybe it's more popular in your area, maybe you see it all the time, but for me in my area, this pint of green "live culture frozen dessert" just seemed too unique to pass up.

Edy's / Dreyer's Slow Churned Key Lime Pie Yogurt Blend
(graham swirl in key lime pie flavored live culture frozen dessert)

Light green color.... always hard to photograph

I was going to hold off the first scooping for a breakfast sundae, but I'm too excited. Something clicked with last year's B&J Key Lime Pie flavor and I want to visit that particular flavor town again.

I take one bite and am overwhelmed with potent flavor. The style of these blends is amplifying that tartness of the key lime. It's not a straight tart, like eating the fruit, but it's a doozy of the flavor. I gotta get my bearings before grabbing another bite.

I aim for the tasty graham swirl and it does it's best to balance things out, but it's not enough. If you dig potent key lime yogurt and whatnot, you'll like this just fine, but for me... well, I need more graham swirl, and unfortunately it seems to be in only part of the container. Oh, and for the record, the texture is just fine, though the strength of this one might be distracting me.


On Second Scoop: I only had a small bowl the night before, but even then, this is not a flavor you quickly forget. In the morning, I tried to balance things out with a generous portion of graham cracker crumbs and a pile of whip cream that easily surpassed the 1 to 1 ratio. Oh, there were a few white chocolate chips too. They all helped, but the key lime pie froyo continues to dominate. 

Verdict?  very potent
Buy Again?  not bad, but too much for me

The Key Lime flavor is often pretty powerful. But I do love the Ciao Bella key lime graham squares. I buy them in bulk at BJ's. They are so light and refreshing....much better than this froyo

Agreed, but there are respectable and tamer alternatives like you mention (B&J version also tasty). This one is a bit of a beast!
