Wow, I can't imagine anyone not liking Dole Whip! I adore it. And of course if you don't like pineapple PLEASE don't waste your time on it. Gosh!(as Napoleon Dynamite would say). Dole Whip to my knowlegde is dairy free. So, there should be no cheesy flavor whatsoever. I am really sorry you had a bad Whip. Whenever I am in line I overhear people around me wondering what to order. I always try to convince them to get the Dole Whip. Mmmmm. It is really like soft serve pineapple sherbet.
Now I want one :-((((
