CJ - the same place that sells the Dole Whip mix sells the Citrus Swirl, too.
Funny. Guess we won't be hearing from him for a while. Think Homer, "Mmmmm Dole Whips.

THEY SELL CITURS SWIRL MIX? Thanks to that info Barry, you are now my official best trip report ever person. Now I just have to go back and look through the posts to see how to get it. Never paid attention because they where talking about Dole Whips.

Perhaps I spoke just a bit too soon. They sell the Orange and the Vanilla. You'll have to swirl them yourself. Time to put DD to work.

That brings back memories. I did a beer can Christmas tree one year in college. I saved all my empties (cause that's the best part) and stacked them together, with a tree trunk of cans as well. Then, when friends came over (and brought theirs), I saved them and made the tree wider and wider, including the pull tops for ornaments.

Thanks for the pictures. I have a lot of Disney picks I took a decade ago I still need to scan in. Although, they won't quite look as great as these. The times do change.

Congrats on quitting. I liked the smokeless tobacco "dip" the best. Kodiak Wintergreen was my favorite. I got hooked when working for UPS outside on the ramp. Somehow, they tend to frown on smoking around jet fuel. But, as long as I didn't get tobacco spit on the packages, I could use it while working. It has been about 10 years for me now, and I still will push gum and other food in the bottom lip. But, I have paid for it with the weight. Now, where's that Dole Whip.

Congratulations. It wasn't a leap year. Was it a full moon? This is one of the post-superbowl MVP questions - "Hey, your wife just said you were right! What are you going to do now?" I'm going to Disney World!!!

OK, you are Lucy to my Charlie Brown? "They have Citrus Swirl. Come on, go for it. OOPS." You are now not my official best trip repot ever person. Oh and tell the Missus you are not right. I am kidding (somewhat). Great trip report and thanks for the link. I am now challenged and must make this work. Of course when I am done, the kitchen will look like a Dairy Queen.

Now off to watch Butler beat the snot out of Duke. Based on that prediction, if you are a betting person call Vegas immediately and put the house on Duke. I had Syracuse and Kentucky in the final.

Then I let that chill for about an Hour...seemed like a year or better.

Then I got out the "freezing bowl" from our Freezer. and assembled the Machine...then I poured in 1 Qt into the bowl and watched the magic...and watched some more...this is like trying to watch a pot start to boil. Finally afte about 15 Minutes it started to resemble some sort of frozen texture...I let it run for anoter 10 minutes or so. and finally could not stand it anymore.

We are Float people...So I had filled 4 glasses with about 1 inch of Pinapple Juice...then put the Dole Whip in. My Mixture was a little runny...but it tasted just right....may have to tweak the mix a little on next try...or wait a little longer.

you beat me to trying it,I still have to order the dole whip mix(never got around to it).I was afraid the machine would not freeze it enough,I posted many pages ago wasn't sure how the mix would do.I know when I make regular soft serve in it 2 percent milk does not work ( need the heavy cream).Not sure if the machine is "commercial" enough for the water base mix like dole.However it does look like yours was taking shape maybe a tweak in the mix will do it.
You can be my test man I will give you some time to tweak the mix before I place my order.I am on my third batch of soft serve this season lol goes fast here.Keep us posted on your next attempt

They stopped shortly before I left, so I flipped on the radio and heard which counties were in the path of the storm. Drove on to my next errands and continued home. By the time I got home after getting the oil changed, getting a hair cut and placing the order for balloons for my DD's b-day party tomorrow - the rain had stopped and a beautiful rainbow was filling the sky.

You're going to keep it in the van for 3 seasons? Dude, do you always store your Disney stuff in the van between trips? Do you not drive it anywhere but Disney? Or do you just like to haul the Disney stuff around with you whereever you go for the "pre-vacation smell"?

I love nasty storms.I videoed hurricane Charlie from my room in the Contemporary few yr back .Last yr I was sitting out back in a storm just taking in the lighting and nasty skies but ended up having to go in cause the kids were worried about me and started to cry,cause they didn't want me to get hit by lightning.Can say I have never been in the path of a tornado,I have seen one and seen results of one but never in path of one.
