If you ever managed to wrangle a trip to Disneyland back when international travel was a thing, chances are you're well acquainted with Dole Whip. The pineapple-flavoured dairy-free soft serve has long been a staple treat for visitors to the famed theme parks, with the dessert becoming as much a symbol of Disneyland as Mickey Mouse's ears and that wild Space Mountain ride. But, this August, you won't need a plane ticket or a Disneyland pass to get your mitts on one of these classic creations — because Dole Whip is headed to the Redcliffe Markets.

The much-loved soft serve is making its first-ever Brisbane appearance, too, thanks to Aloha Twist. The latter is slinging the sweet treat officially from Sunday, August 29 — but if you happened to venture north for a spot of browsing and buying over the past weekend, you might've spotted its blue van onsite on Sunday, August 22.

Pineapple is the OG and best-known Dole Whip flavour, first launched by the Dole Food company back in Hawaii in the 80s. And, it's the main variety that Aloha Twist is focusing on. That said, you'll also be able to tuck into mango, raspberry, strawberry, watermelon, cherry, orange, lemon and lime flavours, too, with the pineapple version always on offer and the rest of the range on rotation.

Head along to the official launch and you might also nab a voucher for a free Dole Whip, if you need any extra motivation to give it a try. And, if it all sounds a bit familiar, that's because Dole Whip food trucks hit up the Sydney Royal Easter Show earlier in the year and proved rather popular; however, this is Brisbane's first taste of the beloved dessert.

Find Aloha Twist at the Redcliffe Markets, Redcliffe Parade, Redcliffe, from Sunday, August 29.
