Many of you may have found me originally because you were searching for the holy grail of Disney, the perfect Dole Whip recipe. But I keep seeing on social media, that many people don’t realize you can totally get pineapple Dole Whips outside of Disney parks! Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with this updated list.
Creamy, fruity, delicious, and refreshing, it’s the deserving favorite of many a park-goer. For the longest time, it really was only available in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and at the Dole Plantation in Hawaii.
However, a few years ago I shared that official “Dole Pineapple Soft Serve” had been spotted at Menchie’s. In doing more research, I found that many locations nationwide serve the delightful, authentic pineapple goodness – along with other nearly as good (if not as emotionally charged) Dole soft serve flavors.
Please, do yourselves a favor. Look up the nearest Menchie’s or Orange Leaf and give them a call – weekly if you must – to find out when they’re mixing Dole Pineapple Soft Serve. You can even add fresh strawberries and whipped cream to it (my favorite combination) or smuggle in some juice to make a float, if you’re feeling adventurous.
Not fortunate enough to live near these gems? Skip the food science and sales pitch on this post if you’d like, and scroll down to the list of locations recently known to be serving The World’s Best Ice Creamy Treat, and see if one of these locations is convenient to you. Your definition of “convenient” may vary, of course, but I’d say a real Dole Whip is worth a few hour drive, at least…
So spill it. How many of you are planning a trip to your nearest frozen yogurt joint as soon as possible, or have already called them to find Dole Whips outside of Disney World or Disneyland?!
