There’s a bit of a tradition here at Poor Couple’s Food Guide where, the week after Easter we go to the local drug store and buy a massive amount of the Russell Stover eggs for super cheap on clearance. We usually eat about 4 and then have the rest in a bag for most of the year. You’d think we’d have learned our lesson by now, but it hasn’t happened yet. This year however, a flavor jumped out at me and I couldn’t wait until after Easter to try it – key lime. The package caught my attention because I am a large fan of lime flavored things. I’ve lamented before the fact that green apple has been taking over lime as the go-to green flavor, so anytime I see something that’s still lime, I’m game.
Lime is probably one of my favorite citrus flavors. It’s so refreshing and also smells wonderful. I’m very upset that green apple has become the go-to flavor for green candies and the like, pushing lime out of the way. I also enjoy lime in smoothies. They definitely need to be combined with another fruit though, because otherwise you’ll just end up with a limeade drink. This time I decided to try mixing lime with another green fruit – kiwi. While a good start, I will definitely be experimenting with other lime smoothies in the future as well.
