Lies

Should not be labeled “Key Lime Juice” because it doesn’t have Key Limes in it. The actual labeling on the product is correct: “Key West Lime Juice”, meaning lime juice from Key West. But if you are looking for juice that comes from Key Limes, this is not it. Change the description!

The “ONLY” Key Lime Juice

I have tried many different brands of Key Lime Juice and this is the only one with the real flavor of limes grown on the Florida Keys.

Key Lime

We lived in Miami in the 80’s and this was on the store shelves there but I could never get it when I traveled somewhere else. Now it is!

Do not use plain old lime juice when a recipe calls for Key Lime, it is not the same. Nellie & Joe’s is the best.

Here’s the best recipe ever for Key Lime Pie:

2 egg yolks, beaten
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice

Pour into a graham cracker crust
The recipe doesn’t even call for baking it. The lime juice thickens the milk and eggs. But I do bake it for about 10-15 minutes at 350º just to be sure.

KEY LIME JUICE

This is the very best Key Lime Juice in the world. I make lots of
key lime pies and this juice is tart and wonderful.

the one & only – the best!

For real authentic key lime pie, this is the only one to use. Your pies will be out of this world!

Boring

My husband and I visit the Florida Keys quite often. We always make sure that we treat ourselves to some wonderful Key Lime Pie. In the past we have always brought home fresh Key lime fruit from some market in Key West. Due to flight regulations and restrictions, we were unable to bring it home this past December. So I decided to purchase some online and this is how we found this brand and used it. It was a real disappointment.The juice tasted like any ordinary lemon juice and lacked that floral bitter tang that Key Limes are famous for.I don’t know how this brand can call themselves the famous and original.The juice is from concentrate and who knows what kind of process it went through but it definitely lacked freshness and I will never buy it again.

great taste

I purchased this lime juice a few years ago on a trip to Florida. Goes great with everything, especially in a bloody mary.

Excellent lime juice

Bought a bottle while in Key West and it lasted in the fridge for one year before I used it all up…. excellent product at a fantastic price

GREAT STUFF FOOD / DRINKS / PIE

There is simply no comparison between Nellie & Joe’s and other lime juices available in stores or even most fresh lime juice.

Great addition to BBQ marinades and dressings. However, my favorite use is in a margarita – add 50 % – 80% lime juice to tequila and Contreau to taste, on the rocks and do not shake. Use with care. Much less sugar than the traditional margarita and may be a little sour for some; but, it quickly becomes an acquired taste.

The Nellie and Joes site has lots of recipes for sauces, marinades and such.

Note that the Amazon vendor appears to have the prices switched on the products.

Great Thirst Quencher!!!

This has a very soft pleasant taste, not bitter at all. I like to put about a capful in a large glass of water. Once in a while I add sugar, but usually not. This is exactly what I need to make my water taste good. And the citrus is refreshing to satisfy thirst. This is good stuff.

Family favorite

We buy a bottle of this monthly. I urge anyone who keeps bottles longer to try it other recipes.
We use it for limeade, baking, in whipped frostings for vanilla cakes, and my family’s favorite use of it is when I make honey lime chicken. I’ll bake or sauté a couple chicken breasts with onions, garlic, salt, pepper and parsley until almost done, then cover them in a honey-lime juice mix using this lime juice and a local produced honey and finish cooking the chicken. The excess juice gets spooned over vegetables, and everyone in my family really loves it when I make chicken this way.
Very recommended. It has a bright, clean lime taste, and adds a wonderful flavor to punches, limeade, shrimp, chicken and works wonderfully in salad dressings.

the bottle says ‘key west lime juice’, NOT ‘key lime juice’

the title of this product is misleading, because you are NOT buying 100% key lime juice, but some possible blend of juices.

Great for Martini’s

We ordered this to make Key Lime Pie Martini’s and it is excellent! I have found other recipes that call for Key Lime juice and am relieved to always have something on hand now. We orderd 3 bottles and will order more when this supply is gone.

several reviews are obviously confused…

The name of the fruit, key lime, simply designates a specific type of lime. There are 2 types of limes commonly available in the US. Persian limes, which are the “standard” larger types of limes that you find in most grocery stores and key limes, which are much smaller, generally very round, and often have a lighter skin color. Because of the smaller size, key limes require a larger number of to yield much juice. While they are often recognized as being grown in florida, key limes are also grown in texas as well as california. You can certainly juice your own key limes in order to make a fantastic key lime pie, but having the pre made product available here definitely save time and effort. I make 20-30 key lime pies every year. I have tried using both fresh limes and this bottled lime juice. There is ultimately no significant difference between the 2.

Easy Lime

Great lime juice. Authentic flavor. Stores well. This product offers a lot of flexibility where real lime juice is required.

Best Key Lime Pie ever

This lime juice is not easy to find in the supermarket outside of Florida. The recipe on the bottle makes the perfect Key Lime Pie & is a family favorite.
TanaEast Waterford, PA

very nice lime juice.

For the price I think this is a great deal. We buy those little green lime looking ones all the time and this is going to last a while! Very good lime flavor and have no complaints at all about it.
KimberyClarkston, MI

Crucial for homemade Key Lime Pie.

One of the advantages of living in Florida is that this stuff is cheap, and
available just about everywhere for under $3.

I see some complaints….OK well then tell me where you find REAL Key Lime
juice commercially? Awright, now that we’ve solved that issue, this is a pretty
versatile lime juice that works well in marinades, drinks and even Bloody Marys.
But the icebox pies this stuff makes is just addictive.

Always in stock at my house!

Every time I make a key lime pie I use Nellie and Joe’s lime juice. People RAVE about it every single time. I’ve been asked to BBQs and asked to bring two pies. Both pies were gone before other desserts were even touched. I tried this product one winter in New England when fresh key limes were simply not available (for less than $50 special order)- so to have found this was a pleasant surprise. Make the recipe on the bottle- use a pre-made graham cracker crust if you must or make your own, which is so much better and easy enough to do, then top with homemade whipped cream. People will LOVE it! I live in California now and can easily get key limes but still use Nellie and Joes for pies because it’s so easy. Enjoy!

NELLIE & JOES KEY LIME JUICE

MY BEST BUD, GEORGE AND I SHARE RECIPES. GEORGE LIVES IN JACKSONVILLE FLORIDAY AND I LIVE IN RAYLEIGH, ENGLAND. GEORGE IS A FINE COOK, SO I LISTEN TO HIM AND WHEN I SAMPLED HIS KEY LIME PIE, WHEN OVER AT HIS HOME, IT WAS JUST GREAT. HIS ADVICE WAS,YOU MUST AND THERE IS NO OPTION,YOUMUST USE NELLIE & JOES KEY LIME JUICE. HE TOLD ME THAT YOU CAN ONLY GET THE KEY LIMES IN SOUTH FLORIDA.THE SECOND IMPORTANT THING IS TO LET IT STAY IN THE FRIDGE FOR AT LEAST A DAY TO LET THAT LIME FLAVOUR EVOLVE.THE LONGER THE BETTER.

I COULD NOT FIND THE JUICE IN ENGLAND SO I EMAILED NELLIE & JOES WEB SITE, BUT THEY NEVER GOT BACK TO ME, SO I JUST SEARCHED THE WEB UNTIL I FOUND A COMPANY, IN THE US WHO WOULD SEND ME SOME. IT ARRIVED AND I COOKED.

HERE IN THE UK WE CANNOT BUY WHAT YOU CALL A ” CRUST” WELL NOT THAT I CAN FIND ANY. GEORGE BUYS A NICE THIN CRUST THAT HE CAN MAKE THE PIE IN. I USED DIGESTIVE BISCUITS,TO MAKE MY OWN CRUST, WHICH MY 4 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER ISABEL AND I CRUSHED AND MIXED IN THE MIXER WITH BUTTER AND SOME CINAMON. THE CINAMON WAS MY IDEA.

WE HAD THE MOST SUPER DOOPER KEY LIME PIE, WHICH ISABEL DOES NOT LIKE, AS THE LIME IS NOT TO HER TASTE. YES FOLKS YOU MUST USE THE NELLIE & JEO`S LIME JUICE, EVEN IF THEY WILL NOT SELL IT TO ME.

THANKS FOR LISTENING AND I WILL GET BACK TO LOOKING AT THE RAIN.

REGARDS

BIG BRUVER, THATS WHAT MY 4 YEAR OLD KEEPS CALLING ME SO HENCE THE NAME

Really like Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key West Lime Juice, Original

In reponse to other negative reviews, I have used and really like Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key West Lime Juice, Original. It is a lot better than Plain Lime Juice made with only Persian Limes.

I contacted Nellie & Joe’s at keylimejuice com. Following is the response I received:

Hello,

The original is made with both Key Limes and Persian Limes. IT is the juice preferred by the largest bakers, such as Sara Lee, Edwards, Heinz Corporation.
