Friday Feast: Dole Whip Dreaming
|July 19, 2013||Posted by Running at Disney under Disney Dining, Friday Feast|
Have you heard that it’s HOT here in the Northeast?? No?? I think everyone is complaining about this heatwave we’re having, but honestly I’ll take this any day over the winter…remember Nemo??
However, this heat has had me wanting something cool and delicious. So of course my mind turns to Dole Whips! Now I’m a relative newbie when it comes to Dole Whips. I only had my first one a few years ago. It was my friend Don, a self-proclaimed Dole Whip addict, who convinced me that I had to try one.
So back in 2010, Don took me to Aloha Isle during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and I tried my first Dole Whip. I actually opted for the Swirl with vanilla ice cream and it was amazingly delicious. The fun thing about trying this during the Halloween party was that the vanilla ice cream was green!
Since then, it has been a must stop for a sweet treat while in the Magic Kingdom. I’ve stuck with the Swirl as my go-to flavor since it’s not as “pineappley” as the straight up Dole Whip.
One of my favorite variations of the Dole Whip debuted this year at Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival – Dole Whip with Spiced Rum! Of course I had to try this! While it was delicious, it was basically just a Dole Whip and the rum didn’t add or detract anything from it. Would I get it again? Um…yes!
Sigh…I wish I had any one of these variations in my hand right now while the temps are 100 degrees outside.
Do you like Dole Whips? What is your favorite kind…Original, Float, Swirl, Spiced Rum?
