Dole’s Pineapple pop is a healthy popsicle made of 100% pineapple juice. The popsicles are not your traditional type. They have creative packaging where you can squeeze to control how much popsicle comes out of the package. I found this at the T & T Supermarket at Metrotown.
Good Packaging Design
I believe this is a Korean exclusive product. The packaging has some Korean on them. It is very clear about 100% pineapple juice. The graphics on the packaging are attractive.
Good Graphics For Instruction
The side of the packaging shows the two ways of consuming this product. They are clearly identified as Shake, Freeze, and Cut if you want frozen dessert. Or you can do Ice, Pour, and Enjoy if you want to have this as pineapple juice. I do think this packaging very well designed to serve as popsicle better. It has earned its right to be popsicles.
Innovative Serving Mechanism
Unlike most popsicles, Dole’s pineapple pop is not on a stick. They are packaged in an irregular shaped juice box.
Following Designed Instruction
I didn’t really know what to do except for the instruction to cut along the hidden line. So I did what I already know by following it.
I tried pushing on the two ends at the top without much luck. So the only thing left to do is to squeeze the bottom. As I squeeze, the shape of the juice box changes. As the pineapple pop comes out, the container follows. I ate two popsicle pops just to see if I can figure out how this works.
Pure Juice Has Texture Differences
I pushed the whole popsicle out and saw some texture differences. The icy part is very refreshing. The yellow part contains fine particles of pineapples. They are not completely frozen like ice. The feedback to the teeth is satisfying with texture differences. The size is perfect for a snack.
604 Food Critic Assessment
For $8 per 8 in one package, this is $1 a pop (definitely pun intended). 100% pineapple juice make this a healthy snack for all ages. Next time I find these, I’m definitely going to stock up. I assume a lot of people will have the same thinking as me. This awesome popsicle is probably going to be hard to find.
