That’s right: Getting your hands on the sweet, pineapple flavor of a classic Dole Whip is about to get a whole lot easier!
Sure, Mickey ice cream bars are great – but there’s truly no Disney treat like the Dole Whip. The iconic yellow-hued frozen treat is exactly what you need on warm theme park days, and its swirl is just as inviting as its sweet-but-tart flavor. And though plenty of Disney fans have tried to recreate the Dole Whip at home, there’s really nothing that measures up to this Walt Disney World and Disneyland staple.
However, that could be changing! Dole, the pineapple giant behind Disney’s famed frozen treat, just announced that it’s about to get even easier to enjoy a Dole Whip at home.
The Dole Whip is Headed to Local Grocery Stores
Just days ahead of Natural Products Expo West, a huge food event that takes place in Anaheim each March, Dole announced that the Dole Whip is about to become more accessible. While you previously could try this treat only at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and the Dole Pineapple Plantation on Oahu, it’s now going to be available everywhere.
In a press release, Dole revealed that, as part of a larger company rebrand, three flavors of Dole Whip will be coming to grocery stores soon.
The arrival of the beloved Disney Dole Whip in grocery stores across America will include the original pineapple flavor you know and love, plus mango and strawberry.
These flavors will keep the original dairy-free Dole Whip formula, which was first launched at Walt Disney World in 1984 and then made its way to Disneyland in 1986. It was specifically launched for the hot summer days at Walt Disney World, with a special formula that’s designed to survive the Florida temps without melting. Now, you’ll be able to enjoy a cool Dole Whip in your favorite flavor or combination of flavors whether it’s hot or cold out!
Keep an Eye Out for Dole Whip at Your Favorite Stores
While the exact product launch date is still TBD, it won’t be long before you can find the Dole Whip in grocery stores near you. Dole will be presenting its entire new lineup of products during Expo West, which means a sneak peek will roll out in early March.
Once Dole does make the new at-home Dole Whip available, you’ll be able to find it in the freezer section at stores everywhere – although we can’t say the magic of snacking on this treat at home will be quite as special as doing so at your favorite Disney theme park!
