I am so Dole-Whipped

Just got back from Disney World and boy is my imagination tired! There is a lot to say about the World of Disney and its four glorious theme parks, efficient shuttle buses and perfect business model of marking up prices. While I will get into the gritty details eventually, I have to mention the best, most delicious, most not-to-be-missed part of the park, the snack stand in Adventureland where you can purchase a pineapple float. Just before you hit the Toblerone-loving Family Robinson, you’ll spot it.
Heaven, thy name is Dole Whip Pineapple Soft Serve! A treat so delicious and mysterious, it even has it’s own Wikipedia page! A treat so desired that it is even sold in bulk on ebay! It’s not even regular soft-serve, it’s a non-dairy, soft, whipped sorbet that is culled gently with sweet Orlando breezes and soothing Disney Cast Member whispers from the prison of the soft serve machine, only to delicately balance atop a lagoon of pineapple juice. I’m a fake-pineapple-flava lovah. Love the clear Gummy Bears. Love tropical popsicles. Love Aloha Pineapple Jell-o. All of which are available in my local grocery store. But alas Dole Whip, the treat that Disney-related message boards refer to as “a wonderful tropical delight” and “the shiznit” can only be found at Disney Parks and at the Dole plantation in Hawaii.


Until we meet again, Dole Whip, we’ll always have that spot right between the Enchanted Tiki Room and The Jungle Cruise.

    You can purchase Pineapple Dole Whip (the REAL thing) at this website:


    It can be made really well in a home ice cream maker (one with a built-in compressor works best).

    Wow! Thanks Mitty! I think I have found my purpose in life. To buy a machine with a built-in compressor and bring the joys of Adventureland to everyone I know.
