Gov. Ron DeSantis's office has taken a side in the Key Lime Pie vs. Strawberry Shortcake food fight in the Florida Legislature.

Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nunez has taken sides with the citrus treat, posting a video supporting a local Florida Keys business, Blond Giraffe, and its key lime delicacies.

"Key Lime pie on a stick, chocolate covered. You can’t get chocolate-covered shortcake," said Lt. G0v. Nunez.

Sorry, Sen. Danny Burgess (R).

Sen. Burgess has been pushing his "Berry good SB 1006 "  measure in the Florida Senate, and it appears as if his efforts are paying off, and looks as if it will make it to a floor vote. The House has one more committee meeting to get past before it goes down to a floor vote in that chamber.

If both chambers vote to make Strawberry Shortcake the official dessert of Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis would be in a position to veto the measure, and with  Lt. Gov. Nunez already taking sides, it appears as if Key Lime pie will survive the Florida legislature.

Florida lawmakers like Rep. Anthony Sabatini have been scratching their heads about how with all the other legislative measures to address, why would they be debating on changing the state's official dessert.
