Previously only available at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and Walt Disney World in Florida, Dole Whip can also be found at a variety of places, including Dodger Stadium.
The popular treat was created in 1984 by the Dole Food Company and made available exclusively to Disney in partnership with Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. That happened after Dole took over as the Tiki Room’s sponsor, replacing United Airlines in 1976.
Prior to the creation of Dole Whip, the snack bar outside of the Tiki Room only included pineapple juice and fruit spears, but the soft serve became an instant classic upon its release and a staple for many park-goers.
Los Angeles Dodgers fans, or anyone looking to buy Dole Whip without a Disneyland ticket, can experience the treat by purchasing it from Elysian Park Grill located on the top deck of Dodger Stadium near section 2.
Dole Whip at Dodger Stadium is sold for $7.99 and comes in a souvenir Dodgers helmet. The color of the helmet varies, with black, blue and pink being offered.
Dodger Stadium also serves both the pineapple and strawberry flavors of the soft serve. Beyond Chavez Ravine and Disneyland the company itself produces a variety of other flavors as well, including cherry, orange and watermelon.
The price at Dodger Stadium more expensive than the Disneyland cost of $6.49, and even more than the Dole Whip float that includes pineapple juice and costs $7.29.
While it is more expensive to purchase, the Dodger Stadium Dole Whip is comparable to the Disneyland Dole Whip in flavor and texture, and it also comes with the helmet that can be taken home as a souvenir.
Dole Whip is made with real fruit and no artificial ingredients and has pineapple blended with honey before being frozen to make a creamy, ice cream-like dessert.
Unlike ice cream, however, Dole Whip is dairy free, doesn’t have processed sugars, and also is gluten free and Non-GMO, making it something many people can enjoy as a vegan-friendly product. Unfortunately for those allergic to tree nuts, it does include coconut.
Disneyland Dole Whip DIY recipe
During the COVID-19 pandemic while Disneyland was closed down, the theme park released instructions on how to make Dole Whip at home.
The recipe calls for one big scoop of ice cream (which should be dairy free if you are looking to make it like the original Dole Whip), four ounces of pineapple juice and two cups of frozen pineapple.
All the ingredients are then added to a blender for blending until it’s smooth. It can then be served with a recommended swirl design.
