67. Terry's Famous Key Lime Pie from Bob Roth's New River Groves
The "World Famous" designator is generally as meaningless as calling oneself an expert: Says who?
While we can't speak to the real-world measure of fame afforded to Terry's Famous pies, it's fair to say they enjoy a steady following.
Their classic version of Florida's official state pie
is tart and creamy with a crumbly graham crust. Though the whipped topping -- instead of meringue -- may make some purists balk, it's hard to argue that this isn't one delicious slice of Sunshine State nostalgia.
Part of the appeal of a Terry's pie is taking a Saturday afternoon trip out to Davie to the old-Florida roadside fruit stand
to pick one up. Slurp down a delicious fruit shake and grab a bag of oranges while you're at it: Just don't forget the pie.
