Who Doesn’t Love Dole Whip?
Weirdos, that’s who.
This pineapple soft serve ice cream treat has become one of the most popular snack items by Walt Disney World veterans.
In Case You Haven’t Had The Pleasure Yet…
Dole Whip is soft, creamy and refreshing, and you can get it as pineapple-only, pineapple/vanilla swirl, or vanilla only. You can have it on its own, or as a float with Dole pineapple juice, and now, you can even get it as a topping for Pineapple Upside Down Cake. It’s most often found at Aloha Isle, in Adventureland, at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. But you can also find it at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, or with alcohol at Epcot or Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Where In Toronto?!
I was strolling through Toronto’s historic Kensington Market. This is one of my favourite places in the city for food shopping (and eating). If you love Asian food, you’re just a block away from Spadina Avenue with some of the best Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean restaurants in Toronto. In Kensington, there are some amazing places to eat lunch, especially if you like Latin American food (check out the Chilean staple, Jumbo Empanadas).
I noticed a spot that served Mexican food, specializing in Ceviche, called Seven Lives – Tacos y Mariscos. Being a huge fan of seafood, I decided to pop my head in and check it out. It looked fantastic, and I made a mental note to eat there next time I was in the area (I had just finished a Dim Sum lunch at nearby Rol San).
I was about to leave, when I noticed a sign for Dole Pineapple Soft Serve. That’s right, DOLE WHIP!!! They didn’t have the pineapple juice float option, but I got a cup of it and you know what? It was amazing!! The taste and texture were perfect – I felt like I was sitting in Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.
As I was eating it, I noticed a shaker of Tajin Mexican Seasoning and sprinkled some on top, and it went REALLY well together!
Enjoy your Toronto Dole Whip at Seven Lives, located at 69 Kensington Avenue in Toronto (just west of Spadina, between Dundas and College).
