OP, no harm in trying one! I love them, DH can take them or leave them (which means, when I ask him if he wants one while I'm ordering he says "no", but still eats half of mine ). I will advise that while I loved the Dole Whip, I agree that the Dole Float took me to the moon and back Something very similar happened to me. I had read all about the Dole Whips here on the board, so our first trip after that I marched right up and asked for a Dole Whip. She said, "a what?" And because I hadn't learned my lesson, the next day I went to AI and asked if you could get a Dole Whip with a vanilla swirl. The lady looked all kinds of confused (different lady) and said, "you mean you want a vanilla ice cream?" So now I know...don't say Dole Whip, don't say Dole Float, say "Pineapple _____." I have noticed multiple times people joining in on an "I love Dole Whip" thread agreeing how great they are, how much they love their Vanilla Dole Whip....and they don't mean a pineapple-vanilla swirl. I often wonder if they ever realized most people are specifically talking about the pineapple version, so on reading here and elsewhere about the "great Dole Whips" made a point to stop in for one...and not knowing, just ordered what they always do (vanilla/chocolate).
