Whipp'd LA swirls six flavors of Dole Whip into cups for a dairy-, gluten-, and fat-free treat that can only be found in West Hollywood, at the Disney resorts, and at Dole Plantation in Hawaii. Whipp'd LA is also one of the only establishments that serves Blue Bell ice cream in the state of California, rotating 40 flavors including Homemade Vanilla, Banana Pudding, and Southern Blackberry Cobbler. Customers can pick from 5-ounce, 8-ounce, 16-ounce, or 32-ounce towers of Dole Whip flavors such as Foot Stompin Strawberry to fuel dispirited toes or choose Pulsating Pineapple, which once lurked under the floorboards in Edgar Allan Poe’s room. An array of more than 25 toppings can dapple Venturous Vanilla, Wild & Deep Chocolate, or Big Hairy Raspberry to diversify cups' flavor bouquets next to Whipp'd's new addition, hawaiian shave ice.
Eight tart and creamy flavors await a deluge of self-serve fruit, nut, and candy toppings behind the all-pink façade of Booya’s Frozen Yogurt. The hands of celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and Usher have taken turns grasping the shop’s self-serve pumps, which emit a constant stream of frozen treats. After compiling a creamy peak of yogurt, customers can pile on heaping spoonfuls of sprinkles, chocolate chips, and other desserts seeking refuge from the crowded calorie counts of ice cream. Though flavors rotate daily, machines regularly stock fat-free, gluten-free, and kosher varieties to ensure that customers of all dietary needs can break through the sweet-treat status quo.
