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.

    This is too funny!

    But seriously, Dole Whips are great. Thumbs up to all those who agree that they are not overrated, just overpriced!

    They are overrated. I had one for the first time a few weeks ago. It was good, but nothing special. I saw alot of people with the floats. Maybe those are better.

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    I find the dole whips taste good.
    You get a lot for your money
    They are nice and cold on a warm day.

    Are they better than anything else in the park….. no

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    I think they're good. They're definitely an accustomed taste, it took me a couple of them to really love them (same with Hommus and Carrie Underwood), but I really like them. The first time I had one, I was just like, "Whoa! What is THAT?"

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    i have a theory that there are churro lovers & dole whip lovers. of course, people may like both, but there is only one DL snack that they would fight to the death over. (ok, maybe not to the death, but cursing & hair pulling may ensue if one or the other afore mentioned snack was rumored to vanish.)

    in any case, i am a churro lover. dole whips, IMO, are WAY over-rated. don't even get me started on dole whip floats

    Tasty? Yes. The best thing in the park? No.

    I say overrated. I'd rather have the fresh pineapple spear.

    Re: Are dole whips overrated?

    I don't think they are overrated. I like them because:

    1) On a hot day, they are extremely refreshing.

    2) They compliment the show. The Tiki room is always better with a Dole-Whip!

    3) I like eating things at Disneyland I can't on the outside. Dole-whips make me think of Disneyland as Fantasia Ice Cream used to.

    3) I like eating things that taste good but aren't that awful for you. I am always concerned about the churros because of the massive amounts of sugar and starch. Dole Whips are not health food but feel more natural.

    I absolutely agree with the both of you!

    Those floats are disgusting! The ice cream is great, but the juice is so bitter! I hate the contrast personally.

    As for the pineapple spears... I LOVE THEM! But I wish they didn't hurt your tongue so much...

    I love the Dole Whips it is one of the few things I "must" have on every trip to the park. But I know it's not for everyone though and thats cool too. Overrated though .....No.

    I agree that there's something better about them in WDW. I don't know if it's the pineapple juice or a difference in the ice cream-type stuff. I always get the float and WDW's tastes very creamy and sweet, whereas DL's tastes much less creamy and more like they use a sorbet or something. Too much Dole, not enough whip.
