My first real interaction with key lime pie came from Red Lobster of all places when it was the restaurant of choice for childhood birthdays. Later in grad school, I became hooked when I would travel out to Montauk Point at the tip of Long Island to the beachside crab shacks and clam bars and follow each meal with a Red Stripe and a slice of key lime pie. Ever since, when the sun is beaming and the breeze is warm and salty, I begin instinctively to seek out a beachfront bar and my favorite tart key lime treat.
530 Edibles’ Key Lime Bar is a re-imagining of the pie I’ve come to love, with a sweet cracker crust and sour lime cake, topped with a generous dusting of powdered sugar. Not unlike the dessert I often crave, 530 Edibles has added their own pucker lipped twist, making for an incredibly tasty experience.
The first thing you notice about the Key Lime Bar is its hue. With a color like this, it would be a perfect substitute for a non-alcoholic St. Patty’s celebration. Each bite of this generously sized edible was melt-in-mouth moist and soft. Best if stored in the fridge, our sample kept through Cannabis Cup weekend in the trunk of a car, for over a week in the office, and then through a photo session under the lights, and was still in great shape when I finally had a chance to eat it. With size enough to split into 2 or more doses or to share, I ate it over a single serving for breakfast, and it was altogether filling.
Testing in at 70 mg of THC, these edibles give off a fun little high. Giggly and goofy, it still has dreamy elements with no lack of haze. Like my favorite thatch-roofed shore side bars, it is sunny and inviting, but if you stay too long, you might end up asleep on the dunes.
Available from 530 Collective, Shasta Lake, or Strictly OG in LA.
