Key Lime for the Win!

— • — • —

I stumbled upon this on Jezebel by way of NYMag. (If you haven't heard, I like to pretend I'm a New Yorker and read constantly. Anywho...) I don't really care about March Madness. I WANT TO. I want to so badly. I want to go to a bar and yell and get super into the game but I just...can't. I get bored. Yaaawn. Beer can only keep me entertained for so long (I know, right?). But anyway, on Friday, I came across the article on NYMag speaking about a new kind of "bracketology" of the Cake Vs. Pie variety. SAY WHAT???

Hmm, cake vs pie. Now that's something I could get into! Normally, I choose cake. I love cake. Obviously. What do I sell? Gimme a C! Gimme a U! Gimme a P! Gimme a CAKE!!! And fruit pies are NOT my thing. They're alright, but I wouldn't choose it. Cream pies and goo pies? That's a different story. I love pumpkin pie. Some kind of chocolate goo pie? Peanut butter pie? Key lime pie?? Heck yeah, I'd hit that. Little did I expect this to happen though:

KEY LIME FOR THE WIN!!!! Holy cow! I love funfetti. I love red velvet (especially my own & Sprinkles'—most others fall short) but WOW... KEY LIME. FOR. THE. WIN. I didn't see that coming at all. You know why? Key lime pie, to me, can transcend traditional pie expectations. The creamy texture, the burst of exquisite flavor, the buttery graham crust, but most importantly the possibility for sophisticated gourmet alterations—it's just beyond a normal pie in my opinion. Now, one could argue that ANY pie could achieve similar heights but here on this blog, Key Lime reigns.

So I'm for pie. Who knew? Even if I had to switch it up, peanut butter pie would be my champ. I have an undying love for peanut butter, but that's a whole other blog post.

What are you thoughts? What's your bracket? Most importantly, WHO IS YOUR CHAMP?
