Whipping Good Time

What's bright yellow, expensive, and an essential part of Disneyland? No, I'm not talking about the submarines, but Dole Whips!


Dole Whips come in a float form (left) or in the classic cup (right). nostkim8805 on flickr.com, 2007.

For those not in the (pineapple-y) loop, Dole Whips are frozen desserts sold at Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room. They're also available as a float, which is basically the same thing with more pineapple juice.

Why are these cups of frozen yogurt so popular, anyway? Part of the reason is probably due to the intense heat at Disneyland. Eating a cold Dole Whip helps relieve the beating sun, if only for a moment.

Have you ever caved in and bought a Dole Whip? What did you think, and how would you compare them to churros, another Disneyland food staple?

I had a Dole whip for my first time in December, it wasn't hot outside, but the park was packed with holiday visitors so it was the least crowded place to get a snack.

YUMMY! I had the frozen whip in a cup and it was very tasty and refreshing!
