Key West Key Lime Pie Co. makes Food Network list

Staff writer

The editors of Food Network Magazine went on a two-fold mission.

They first wanted to first find 50 food gifts from all 50 states. But each gift had to have a two-fold purpose. They had to appeal to people who’d never tasted the food item, but also be a taste of home for those who’d moved out of state.

Florida’s gift is the $38.95 traditional Key lime pie from Key West Key Lime Pie Co. New York’s is a dozen black and white cookies ($45) from William Greenberg Desserts in New York City. From Illinois, it’s a $59 hot dog 10-pack including wieners, buns, condiments and celery salt from Portillo’s in Chicago.

All of the gifts can be found in the latest holiday issue of the magazine.
