We have awesome news! Thanks to The Pineapple Shack, the cult classic Dole Whip dessert no longer requires a trip to Disney World - you can find it locally roaming the streets of Tampa!
The Pineapple Shack has hit the area courtesy of Rae and Chris Bridges. The couple began toying with the idea of starting a food truck, wanting to serve something cool and refreshing that would bring a smile to the faces of their fellow Floridians. Ice cream fit the bill on all counts, but it wasn't until a trip to Hawaii that they stumbled upon their true inspiration. One taste of Dole Whip and they were hooked! Rae explains the transition from vacation to business; "We thought, why not bring the flavor of the islands here for everyone to savor and enjoy? That's when the wheels started to turn. For the non Dole Whip devotees, the treat is a creamy Hawaiian pineapple soft serve, however diehard fans claim that oversimplified description lacks some of the magic represented in the treat itself. Dole Whip can be ordered by itself, or as the base of Pineapple Shack's signature items such as the Aloha Colada Whip and Dole Whip Shortcake. In addition to Dole Whip treats, The Pineapple Shack offers a variety of local handcrafted ice cream, and delicious dipped cones such as toasted coconut, chocolate, birthday cake, etc. Sundaes and other unique sweet treats are also available.
The pineapple on their truck doesn't just represent the main flavor of their signature ingredient, but has been a symbol of hospitality for many generations. "We carry on this tradition at The Pineapple Shack Island Creamery with the warmth, charm and style of the islands. We love traveling to new places for events and meeting new people from all walks of life. One of our favorite things is watching a customer's reaction when trying one of our delicious treats for the first time."Follow The Pineapple Shack to see where you can catch them next - and be sure to try the famous Dole Whip for yourself! The Pineapple Shack will be present at the following upcoming events:April 7th - Riverview Food Truck Rally13050 Summerfield Blvd Riverview, FL 33579 from 5-9pm April 13th - Lakeland Food Truck Rally Munn Park 6-9pm

We wanted to take a moment and introduce our Food Truck Fans to one of the newer members of the Tampa Bay Food Trucks family: The Poutine Truck!Owners Sherron Coletti and her husband Shaun Lacroix hail from New England and Quebec, and after tiring of the brutal northern winters, hatched a dream of moving down south to open a food truck. Sherron explained, “the dream was mostly for our retirement years, but it’s a good thing we didn’t wait as it’s a lot of work!”In June of 2016 Sherron’s second father passed away leaving her mom solo in Florida. While it was a difficult and life-altering decision, this event proved as a great catalyst and they grabbed the chance to make a major life change. With the support of their family, Sherron and Shaun paired her kitchen skills and his mechanical experience with welding, motors, and equipment repairs to open their truck. Their skill sets have expanded even further as a result of this venture “my husband is a people person....what I found out though is he is also a good cook! My mom is actively involved in the business as well. She helps prep and sets up for events and will be helping with the bookkeeping.”A true family business, there was some discussion over what type of food they should serve. In consulting with Tampa Bay Food Trucks, Sherron originally pitched the idea of doing kebabs, but mentioned the truck would need to be outfitted with a small fryer to make Poutine, one of their favorite foods, for certain events. Pronounced “puts in”, CEO Michael Blasco said “Poutine is absolutely what you need to do!” Until Sherron and her family rolled into town, Poutine was missing from the expansive roster of food trucks in Tampa Bay. “My husband was so excited as this is the food from his country. My daughter considers it a food group.”For those unfamiliar, Poutine is a Canadian brown gravy, fresh curd cheese and french fries. You can create different variations with different toppings, keeping the fries and cheese curds as your base. Shaun makes the gravy daily from scratch (no canned or powdered mixes here!) The cheese is shipped in fresh weekly, with a two week shelf life to ensure maximum freshness while the fries are fried once to precook and then fried a second time to order. The truck currently features four types of Poutine, with a goal of featuring a weekly special very soon.
“We are huge foodies and lovers of Pinterest, which keeps the ideas flowing. We are excited to be open for business and it’s really giving us a chance to get to know the Tampa area and meet new people.”
