100 Favorite OC Dishes, #62: Pineapple Float at Jollibee

I assumed that Jollibee's Pineapple Float wouldn't be any good since most of it comes out of one of those recirculating beverage dispensers that I always equate with artificial flavors and colors. But I was wrong. It's delicious. Excellent, even.

To make it, an employee scoops ice cubes into a cup, pulls a lever on that dispenser to fill it near to the brim with the chain's pineapple punch. Then, he pulls another lever to plop a squiggle of vanilla soft serve on top of that. Finally, to finish, he adds a few spoonfuls of chopped up canned pineapple.

If you think it sounds like it would be a wretched combination, you'd be as wrong as I was. It is, in fact, refreshing, but also ice-creamy, and not as sickly sweet as I initially imagined. And unlike Dole Whip, which I've always thought had an artificial aftertaste, Jollibee's pineapple float finishes clean—the perfect summertime refreshment.
