Kroger Lime Bavarian

When I was a kid in the early 70's, we shopped at a Kroger store in suburban 
Cincinnati. In their deli case, they had a lime dessert called Lime 
Bavarian. It was pale green and topped with toasted coconut. It was light, 
almost like it was made with cool whip. As far as I can remember, there 
wasn't any thing in it like pineapple or any other fruit. They had it cut 
into large rectangles and put on a Styrofoam tray with plastic wrap over it. 
My mom would only buy it for us if we were good, so we didn't get it very 
often. They also had a pink version, but we always got the lime.  I have 
never seen a recipe for it,  ever. I've seen recipes for things with that 
name, but they never seem quite right. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Hello Gena,

I found Kroger's "lime bavarian" mentioned in Kroger's newspaper ads only. No recipe and no mention other than in those old ads.

I found several "lime bavarian" recipes, but most contain fruit such as passion fruit, pineapple, or pears. Some are called desserts and some are called salads. Most are made with lime Jello. I did not find one that was topped with coconut.

The ones that I found that had no fruit are these:

Wow, that was quick. I suppose it's kind of a cross between the second one and the last one. I'm going to try the second one, 
minus the first step. There were no "jello cubes" in it---just light airy green fluff.

Dear Uncle,
Ever run across recipes for the making of Vita Brits and/or Weet Bix?
Thanks for checking!


Hello Chris,

Sorry, no. Plenty of recipes using them, but none to make them. Commercial product.

Ugh!  I haven't found a real good recipe out of these links, but I found something I'll be working to extract

My great grandfather was the owner of Judice's bakery in New Orleans. I have 
searched for info for years. My mom and uncle were the last generation to 
grow up with the bakery. My great grandfather sold it when he retired. I 
clicked on the Judice's Bakery link and nothing came up. Do you have info on 
the bakery or any of its products?


Hello Nicole,

The only items on my site that mention Judice's Bakery are these:



There is a newspaper ad from Judice's Bakery here: New Orleans Past

On the right edge of this photo is a "Bakery" sign - That's Judice's Bakery. Louis Libraries

These are all that I have or can find.
