Costco Dole Whip Review

If you’re looking for an alternative to ice cream and love pineapple, you might want to consider checking out Dole Whip. It’s a frozen dessert that’s dairy-free, sweetened with honey and made with real pineapple. It definitely has a fun, tropical vibe. I’ve read that it’s a popular treat at Disney parks.

Location in Store

We bought this while in Kona, Hawaii and it was located in the freezer aisle at Costco, near the other frozen desserts. The item number is 1735986.

The Dole Whip comes in sealed individual cups.

Some other frozen delights I recommend from Costco are the Melona Bars, Helados Mexico Ice Cream Bars and the Kirkland Signature Super Premium Vanilla Ice Cream.

I found these a little disappointing to be honest. If you’re trying to eat healthy or limit your calories or dairy intake, you’d probably enjoy them but the first thing I noticed is that they’re not very sweet.

There’s a strong natural pineapple flavor that’s slightly tart. The texture is smooth but it leaves a bit of an odd residue/film on the roof of your mouth after each bite. The Dole Whip isn’t as creamy as I expected, possibly from the lack of dairy. Overall, I just wasn’t in love with these and after having one didn’t feel the urge to have anymore.

It isn’t as creamy or flavorful as I hoped.


The box comes with eight small cups of dole whip and costs $11.99 USD which isn’t necessarily cheap but the whole box is probably less than you’d pay for a Dole Whip at Disney!

No artificial ingredients.


The Dole Whip comes in individual cups with a pull off top and the best before date is about nine months from when I purchased them. They need to be kept frozen but make sure you let them thaw for at least ten minutes before you eat them because they come out of the freezer rock hard.

The perfect size for a small dessert.

These are great for someone following a dairy-free, processed sugar free diet. My whole family tried them and only one of us really liked them. The rest of us thought they were just okay.

One individual cup contains 110 calories, five grams of fat, zero milligrams of sodium, 13 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fiber, 11 grams of sugar and less than a gram of protein.

The calories, fat, carbs and sugar are definitely less than if you were to have an equal amount of regular ice cream.

Nutrition facts.


The ingredients list is short and sweet with pineapple puree being the main ingredient. Instead of dairy there’s coconut cream and it’s sweetened with honey. I’m a big fan of the ingredients list and appreciate that Costco carries some healthier, plant-based, dairy-free sweet options!

The Dole Whip is gluten-free and vegan but contains tree nuts (Coconut).

Give it a try!

These aren’t bad, they’re just not amazing. They’re low in calories, fat and sugar compared to regular ice cream so if you set your expectations accordingly you may enjoy them as a bit of a healthier treat! I’d rather just have ice cream.

  1. Sounds like the kind of thing I’d like to try but I really doubt they’ll be available in southern Ontario!
