Hi from Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom, where we’re trying the NEW Hei Hei Cone!
Inspired, of course, by Hei Hei from Moana, this new tribute-in-a-treat gives a nod to the rooster through its colors and garnishes to create yet another Instagram-worthy snack with character!
The Hei Hei Cone starts with a blue cone.
It’s filled with Dole Whip — the famous pineapple soft-serve, of course, and the specialty of Aloha Isle. BUT! It’s also filled with a new flavor of Dole Whip here at Aloha Isle: Raspberry!
It’s finished with sugar-piece “eyes” and a sour candy “comb.” Why, HELLO, Hei Hei!
The sour ribbon adds an extra bit of pucker to this already tart treat. There is no additional flavor, by the way, to the blue cone. It’s just your typical ice cream cone. But that’s ok because there is so much fruity flavor packed within that cone that you’re not missing out on anything extra! The raspberry is a truly delicious flavor addition topping all that already-beloved pineapple Dole Whip.
While we’re on that subject… you’ll notice on the menu that the Raspberry Dole Whip is NOT listed as a purchase on its own in a cup or float. You’ll only see it with the Hei Hei Cone.
And, in fact, you won’t even see the raspberry Dole Whip machine, as it’s kept in the back.
In speaking with a Cast Member (who had also inquired with her manager), the Raspberry Dole Whip is ONLY sold in the Hei Hei Cone… for now. We emphasize the “for now” because we got the impression that a change to this status might be on the way. (Though we want to emphasize “might,” as well 😉 ).
Note that the Hei Hei Cone is noted as a “limited-time offering” (according to the Disney World online menu). So get to Aloha Isle as soon as you can to say “Aloha!” to this new treat, just in case!
You’ll find Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland. Take a Food Tour of the whole land in our DFB YouTube Video!
