Several threads have talked about key limes and where to find them. Here in the Northwest, Fred Meyer stores carry both fresh keys and bottled key lime juice. A 1 lb. bag of keys (from Mexico) is under $2. (I squeezed about 5 ounces of juice out of that.) The limes are not quite as big as ping pong balls, so it takes a little while to juice 'em! (Are all key limes that small?)

A 16 oz. bottle of "Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice" is under $3. (A little sodium benzoate for preservative, otherwise all juice.)

I found keys to be more "tangy" than regular limes. I made a couple of daquiris to compare (2 oz white rum/1 oz lime/1-2 oz sugar syrup). I preferred the tangier key lime version, but I won't go out of my way to use keys unless a recipe calls for it.

Fred Meyer's owned by Kroger, so it's possible you can get keys at your local Kroger-owned store.
