KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - A Key West man has won a Key lime pie-eating contest on the island where the tart, creamy dessert originated.

Steve Carr devoured a 9-inch pie smothered in whipped cream in 1 minute, 18 seconds Saturday, immersing his bearded face in it and emerging messy but victorious.

The Mile High Key Lime Pie Eatin’ Contest, highlighting the annual Key Lime Festival, required entrants to consume the pastry without using their hands.

Key lime pie was designated Florida’s official pie in 2006 by the state legislature. Ingredients are condensed milk, egg yolks and the juice of tiny yellow Key limes, typically with a graham cracker crust and whipped cream or meringue topping.
