Dole Whip (also known as Dole Soft Serve) is a soft serve frozen dessert created by Dole Food Company in 1986. It comes in six fruit flavors: pineapple (which in this flavor is also known generically as pineapple whip), strawberry, mango, orange, lemon and raspberry. Dole Whip is well-known at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. They serve it by itself and with Dole pineapple juice called a Dole Whip float. It has achieved a cult following among Disney park-goers.
Although known to many to be a Disney treat, it is widely available in the United States, and is also distributed internationally.
The popular dessert, served in a cup or in a glass of pineapple juice as a float topped with a maraschino cherry and Polynesian paper umbrella, is a benefit of Disneyland's long-standing relation with Dole Foods, corporate sponsors of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.
Dole Whip begins as Dole Soft Serve dry soft serve mix. It is mixed with water in a mixing bucket and poured in a commercial soft serve machine. The product is dairy-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, and fat-free. In 1997, Kent Precision Foods Group stepped in to license the Dole Whip.
