Dole has announced that it will finally make their famed Whip treat available in the freezer section of grocery stores this spring.
The treat once exclusively available at Disney parks, will soon be available for customers to enjoy in their very own homes as the warm season arrives.
Consumers will be able to purchase pineapple, mango and strawberry flavors of the dairy-free dessert.
Dole also announced the introduction of other grocery store products including smoothie bowls and pineapple juice drinks.
Tasting Table reports:
Dole Whip is one of 11 new packaged products the fruit giant announced it will be bringing to stores this year. The official announcement took place at the Natural Products Expo West, which is being held this week just down the street from Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
Dole Whip has been an essential part of Disney World and Disneyland since it made its debut in Florida in 1984. Originally, these treats were only sold in Adventureland at both U.S. parks, near the Dole-sponsored Enchanted Tiki Room attractions, and at the Dole Plantation in Hawaii, where it came in three flavors: orange, strawberry, and, of course, the iconic pineapple.
As demand grew for the tropical-tasting dessert over the years, Disney and Dole expanded its availability across parks and resorts and rolled out additional flavors, including mango, watermelon, lemon, lime, cherry, and raspberry, though flavor availability tends to rotate throughout the year at different locations, with pineapple being the mainstay. According to Dole, the versions of the fan-favorite treat coming to grocery stores are similar to the original trio of flavors with pineapple and strawberry heading to the freezer section along with mango, which is taking the place of orange.
Dole said it’s new offerings are “driven by consumer desire for wholesome food options that deliver on taste.”
Dole said it is “launching new innovations across every category – Snacking, Beverages, Ingredients and Frozen Treats – and entering new categories like Functional Supplements and Probiotic Sodas under a new brand.”
The new products include (according to Dole):
Snacks: Bringing healthier snacking options to adults and kids alike, Dole will roll out Dole Good Crunch, sustainably produced dehydrated pineapple and banana bites that pack a crunch and provide nutrition benefits; as well as Dole Wiggles Fruit Juice Gels, a wholesome and nutritious take on the classic treat crafted with 100% fruit juice.
Beverages: Building on Dole’s rich heritage in 100% Pineapple Juice and consumer desire for beverages with less sugar, Dole will introduce Dole® Light Pineapple Juice Drink, with just 40 calories per can and 60% less sugar and calories than regular 100% pineapple juice. Dole is also rolling out Dole® Pineapple Mango Juice, a tropical, sweet blend of pineapple and mango. And to support gut health, the soon-to-launch Dole® Digestive Bliss Fruit Juice Drink is 50% fruit juice, boosted with plant-based macronutrients.
Frozen Indulgences: Dole Whip®, a tropical frozen treat, will soon be available in three delicious flavors (pineapple, mango, and strawberry) in the freezer aisle at your local grocery store.
Frozen Snacks: Dole Boosted Blends Smoothies are being relaunched, delivering added protein, energy, and cognitive benefits. As well as new Dole Smoothie Bowls with exotic fruits like mango and mangosteen, and strawberry and aronia, plus the relaunch of Dole® Acai Bowls.
The Secret Nature of Fruit® Chews and Probiotic Sodas, a new brand of functional fruit-powered vitamin chews and probiotic sodas.
