We’re big fans of the Dole Whip, one of the classic snacks that many people can’t live without when they head to a Disney theme park!
This creamy, chilly treat usually comes in a pineapple flavor, but you can also get the orange flavor at some Disney dole whip locations, along with chocolate and vanilla soft serve ice cream. And guests have the option of combining the sweet/tart treat with pineapple juice to make a float!
What if We Invented a New Flavor!
While I’m sure that many of us love the classic pineapple flavor, we got to thinking…what flavor would you invent if you had the chance? Currently the company who makes the dole whip mix offers vanilla, chocolate, orange, strawberry, raspberry, mango, and pineapple.
Do you think Disney should serve more of these flavors? Or are there other flavors you’d add to the list in your “fantasy land?”
My pick would be a red-velvet-and-cream-cheese-frosting flavored Dole Whip…or a lemon-curd-and-blueberry flavored Dole Whip! But I also love some of the ideas from the Disney Food Blog facebook fans below — especially the tequila-based ones!
Take a look at what was suggested by our readers, then let us know YOUR picks in the comments section below! Maybe we’ll invent a whole new dessert!
We got quite a few responses when we posted this question over on Facebook! Here are a few of our favorites…
Our Facebook fans gave the most votes to a mango or coconut version of the Dole Whip. Watermelon and pina colada were definitely the runners up.
There were lots of other fruity Dole Whips being conjured up in the imaginations of our Facebook followers. Banana, cherry, strawberry, passion fruit, peach, and raspberry.
Others wanted a twist of flavors such as mango-pineapple (Lee K.), pineapple-coconut (Sandra V.), mango-peach (Shirley H.), strawberry-banana (Shawn B.), coconut-passion fruit (George H.), and watermelon-guava (Sandy B.).
We found the alcohol-based flavors intriguing. We applaud Paul C. for his tequila suggestion! We can definitely see stopping by La Cava for one of these concoctions “on tap”.
A Pina Colada Dole Whip was another flavor regarded highly by our Facebook friends. Joseph S. just wants to see an “80 proof+” version. Another vote went towards Amaretto.
Since the Magic Kingdom is still a dry theme park, these adult Dole Whips could be served at the Polynesian Resort. Captain Cook’s already has that self-serve machine! And the setting would still go well with Melissa V.’s suggestion for Coconut Rum for a “pirates themed treat”.
Sweet and Savory Flavors
Some of the suggestions went the sweet and savory route with a shout-out for bacon, pumpkin, V8 juice, and coffee. Chris T. chimed in with “I’m so down with bacon flavored Dole Whips”!
Finally, two Facebook friends sum up our quest with their own thought-provoking questions. Mary M. asks “why mess with perfection?” and Ron H. states “Never…can you improve on a classic?”
Now it’s your turn! Invent more flavors that will have us dreaming about a refreshing and new Dole Whip treat! Let us know your ideas for new desserts in the comments section below!
