The first time I had a Dole Float (the combination of juice and the Dole Whip) I asked my SIL if she liked pineapple. She said yes and we got a couple. My brother & I who both love pineapple couldn't get enough. My SIL had a few bites and then said, I guess I'm not really a big pineapple fan after all. LOL The Dole Whip reminds me of pineapple sherbert with less of a dairy flavor and no pineapple chunks. It's certainly not really bad frozen yogurt. The juice, I'm not sure if it's from a can or not but it tasted fine to me. It could have been colder but the flavor was what I expected. Anyone who has ever cut up a fresh pineapple (I have one on my counter waiting to be cut right now) knows it's a sticky sweet mess of goodness. I'd say if you're curious about the Dole Whip and not a big pineapple fan, stick to the Dole Whip. The Dole Float is for those who want to OD on pineapple.
