Escape anytime with Dole Golden Selection® pineapple


Ahhh, the sweet nectar of a Dole Golden Selection® pineapple! Close your eyes and let it transport you to a tropical paradise - with its succulent flavor and juicy texture, it's like having an instant mini-vacation every time you indulge. Whether you're looking for something special for your next family gathering, or want a healthy and sweet after school snack, Dole’s new Golden Selections are a great way to refresh and recharge. Not only do they taste amazing, but there are so many ways to enjoy them—the possibilities are endless! Read on as we explore why everyone should be adding Dole’s Golden Selection® Pineapple into their lives today.


1.  Eat it fresh

One of the best ways to enjoy Dole's Golden Selection® pineapple is to eat it fresh. The sweet, juicy fruit is a perfect snack or addition to any meal, plain and simple. Just cut off the top of the pineapple, slice it into pieces, and enjoy.


2.  Eat it Raw

Take pineapple slices to the next level with our pineapple carpaccio.  Delicate, thin slices of pineapple leave no place for the sweetness to hide. Taste every hint of the aromatic juice paired with peppery arugula, toasted pine nuts and the brightness of white balsamic.  It’s impressive, deceptively simple and lets


3.  Make a smoothie

Another great way to enjoy Golden Selection is to make a smoothie. Simply add some pineapple chunks, yogurt, milk of choice and ice to a blender and blend until smooth. You can also add other fruits or vegetables to your smoothie for an extra boost of nutrition.  But thanks to this variety’s unique sweetness, you won’t need to add any sugar!  Try our Pineapple-Turmeric Smoothie if you’re in need of a recipe!


4. Grill it

Lastly, have Golden Selection pineapple on the grill. First cut the pineapple into rounds or spears, brush with some olive oil, and grill for a few minutes until slightly browned. You can then add to compliment a main dish or enjoy as a dessert on its own!  For a sweet twist on an appetizer check out our Grilled Pineapple Fries


These limited availability pineapples are monitored constantly for quality by our expert growers, ripened to perfection while still on the plant and picked with precise timing at their peak in our Costa Rica farms. In fact, only 6% of our crop makes the cut to be called Golden Selection®.  So when you see one available at your local retailer, we hope you’ll snag it and enjoy the flavor as much as we do!
