@KeyLimePieFrozen Key Lime Pie On a Stick: The Swingle Hope July 25, 2015 Brooklyn, Daily, Dessert, Featured, Late Night Snacks, Lunch, NYC Store, Reviews You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Had a Swingle, the brainchild of Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies in Red Hook. I walked through the outdoor Smith Street Market in Brooklyn Heights on Sunday and came upon a small stall selling only two things: Mini Key Lime Pies and Swingles. There is nothing like walking around an outdoor market, on a nice day, munching on the most filling and delectable popsicle of your life, aka the Swingle. If the Swingle is a mystery to you then prepare to be enlightened. The Swingle: A frozen, mini key lime pie, dipped in dark chocolate, on a stick. While the name is bizarre and the creation quite inventive, the end product is something out of your wildest food fantasies. Strangely and aesthetically pleasing, the Swingle is straight from a post on one of those foodie instagrams that you live vicariously through while eating a pb&j alone at work. And it could all be yours for six American dollars! A photo posted by Stephanie ??? (@yumcrispypata) on Jul 4, 2015 at 10:20am PDT A photo posted by Stephanie ???

Head to Red Hook or find one of their retail locations throughout the City. Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies originated in a tiny hole in the wall on the industrial Pier 41 in Red Hook. For better or for worse, it’s still there. While their headquarters may be a bit out of the way for some folks, if you frequent block parties, outdoor markets, or certain retail locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, you might be lucky enough to come across these famous treats. The Swingle, however, is maddeningly inaccessible, although I believe this could be part of its magic. The Key Lime Pies are tart and crisp and never soggy. The crust is crushed graham cracker which perfectly counter-balances the spicy tartness of the filling. These hand-held delights are prefect for an afternoon snack or to finish off a meal. The Swingle is just one of these pies but frozen and dipped in chocolate. When frozen, these babies do not lose their crunchiness or their freshness, and the bittersweet dark chocolate coating is decadent and not too overwhelming. On a hot day a Swingle will be sure to cool you down and satisfy your sweet tooth all in one!
