I’ve been eye-ing Dole Dippers ever since I started seeing coupons for them in my Sunday Indianapolis Star. It took me awhile to pick them up so when I finally did, I wanted to try all three:
- Banana with Almonds
If you aren’t familiar with Dole Dippers, they are frozen dark chocolate covered pieces of fruit. Look for them in your grocery store’s frozen section (click to search your area). Be sure to let them thaw at least 10 minutes before eating them.
Each box of the Dole Dippers has pre-portioned packets of four pieces. I would say each piece is probably two to three bites.
The first one I tried was banana. While I love bananas, this frozen dessert wasn’t my favorite. Part of it was flavor and the other part was texture, perhaps it was just because it was frozen. There was something funky about it all to me, but that doesn’t mean you won’t love it. If you’re interested in these be sure to try both strawberry and banana.
Once I realized I didn’t like the banana dipper as much, I didn’t even try the version with almonds. I’m sure I will at some point. The almonds will probably enhance the flavor for the better.
That being said, the strawberry dipper was my favorite. I really thought the dark chocolate and strawberry combination was perfect and I’m not even a huge fan of dark chocolate. I honestly didn’t even realize the Dole Dippers were dark chocolate until I bought them.
Another reason why I will continue to buy the strawberries is the calorie count. They only have 60 calories per pack. The others have higher calorie counts. Below is a comparison of the nutritional facts on all three boxes. If you try them, let me know what you think!
