    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    I tried my first one last weekend, and it was pretty decent, not sure it's worth ALL of the hype, but it was tasty.

    and sprinkles!

    Tasty - yes

    Great combo for the show - yes

    Worthy of worship - not even close

    Brave for starting this thread - yes


    If they sold it at Rite Aid instead of DK and the Tiki Room, you'd never hear about it. I did have one on the last visit, though...

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    It depends on how much you rate them.

    If perhaps you rate then too much, then they are overrated.

    However, at times people can rate them too little. In such a case they are underrated.

    It's hard to rate them perfectly. There is just such a huge scale of rating that it's nearly impossible to get the perfect rate on the first or even second time.

    Just for the record, the correct rating for a Dole Whip is exactly 876.4736212. Anything over that is overrated and anything under that is underrated.

    Don't confuse overpriced (which some would argue that in some way almost everything at DL is overpriced) with overrated.

    There's no accounting for taste.

    I do think the world is a better place with them.

    Sense of humor check: If someone ran over your foot with a stroller, and the transgression were attributed to the stroller pusher trying to eat a Dole Whip while pushing the stroller, would you

    A) Forgive them, they couldn't help it, they were in the throws of a DW induced mania, to which you could relate, then you show them the correct way to stroller push and eat a DW
    B) Slap the stroller pusher and take their DW in compensation
    C) Forgive them, they couldn't help it, anybody tasteless enough to buy one of those frozen pee-colored globs of goo must be incapable of taking responsibility for their own actions
    D) Slap the stroller pusher, throw their DW in a nearby waste receptacle, and tell them the legend of the Fantasia ice cream .......

    I think you're on to something there. Especially since I got creamed by a stroller the last time...they should have bought me one in compensation.

    What I've yet to figure out is how to eat one without getting a dole whip headache. Any ideas?

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    overpriced( what at disney isnt?) but not overated. however i do know of one person at least who has suggested a little rum in the pineapple juice wouldn't be too bad. I had my first one when I was 13 and always loved them. I was just sad that you couldn't get them in iowa somewhere. SO when I moved south to florida I was grateful WDW was nearby. I still don't get them on a regular basis, but I do love them and so do the kids. actually my daughter was the one who suggested the rum.

    They are best on a hot day, but I'd consider yesterday a fairly cool day (I'd even say it was cold in the evening).

    Are Dole Whips overrated?

    Hmmmm... I'm afraid to answer that question. The Tiki Gods are usually angered by "all the celebrating," it's best not to tempt fate and give an answer that wouldn't look favorably on the mighty Dole Gods and Goddesses.

    What is overrated, anyway? There are only two places in the world where the Whip can be found: Anaheim, CA and the Dole Plantation in Hawaii. If anything's overrated, it's the Orville Popcorn. I love it, but man, even Albertson's has it on their shelves.

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    I like them but I don't think they're great.
    I certainly wouldn't pass one up!!
    And I don't like the float too much.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
