Marvel + Dole Inspired Recipes
Dole has had many partnerships with films to help encourage families to eat healthier, as well as use pop culture to inspire exciting new recipes using Dole products. Last year, they made some fantastic Dole recipes pulling inspiration from Beauty and the Beast, Cars 3, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
This year, Dole is “Powering the Hero Within” by partnering with and Marvel to create special Avengers: Infinity War Dole branded produce, such as pineapple, and bananas with Avengers stickers, along with recipes inspired by the Avengers. You can find all the Marvel inspired Dole recipes by visiting their site Dole.com/Marvel. You can also see a couple of my favorite recipes of theirs below:
