With announcements revolving around Disneyland’s Magic Key pass and Genie app, we’re seriously craving some Dole whip (and maybe a churro or two). Here are six spots to get your fill of that creamy, cold pineapple goodness right here in the Valley.
All four Valley locations of Koibito Poké (including the newly opened Gainey Village location) dish up Dole whip in 5-oz. portions. Best of all, those with a craving for something cool can even have it delivered.
At its three East Valley locations (Gilbert and two in Mesa), Soda Rush serves up Dole whip, with or without the addition of pineapple juice. Hot tip: pick up some cinnamon rolls to heat up for weekend brunch while getting your Dole whip fix.
Gilbert’s Twisted Sugar is known for its delicious gourmet cookies, but its Dole whip smoothies are the true star of the menu. In addition to pineapple, sippers can savor mango, raspberry, strawberry, lemonade, orange and pina colada flavors.
Dole whip–but make it grown-up. Lylo Swim Club at Rise Uptown in Phoenix offers a Dole whip for the 21-and-older set. It features El Dorado 5 Year and Dark Hamilton demerara rums over the classic pineapple soft serve, and is made even more tempting by being served poolside.
Whether in a float, a sundae (with toppings like fresh fruit or sprinkles) or served traditionally, the Dole whip at Kamana’Wana Hawaiian Treats in Phoenix is the next-best thing to being at theme park. Of note, Kamana’Wana is currently only open for take-out.
Though it’s not offered every week on its rotating menu of flavors, Crumbl recently introduced a Pineapple Whip cookie, comprising a chilled pineapple sugar cookie made with real Dole whip and topped with Dole whipped cream, that you’ll want on your radar.
