Early into the pandemic, our kitchen experiments knew no bounds. One of them clicked, and that is the unique and satisfying combination of the mellow sweetness of the ube and the creamy tang of cheese that left us wondering: where has this been all our lives?!
It’s been more than a year since we saw the ube cheese pandesal basically become food as staple as the pandesal itself, but apparently, we’re still not over our pandemic-induced invention. How do we know? Well, they’re a little late to the party, but Jollibee has finally jumped on the ube-cheese hype train and it’s bringing all of us along for one more ride around the track with their new Ube Cheese Pie!
The latest addition to the langhap-sarap menu takes everything that made the ube-cheese phenomenon great and stuffs a hearty amount of it inside their signature crispy pie crust to achieve a “sweet & cheesy goodness” that only Jollibee can do.
After playing with what sweet or savory foodstuffs they can fill their trademark pies with, Jollibee has given us another potential crowd-favorite that joins other pandemic novelties like last summer’s Ube Macapuno and Buko pies.
The new dessert pie will go on sale for a limited time only, so your sweet tooth might want to set a date soon! The new pie variant goes for PhP35 a piece and is also available in a Pies-To-Go trio for PhP100. Hungry customers can sample this novelty by ordering through dine-in, take-out, and drive-thru, by ordering through the Jollibee mobile application, or online via JollibeeDelivery.com, or by calling Jollibee’s #87000 delivery hotline. The Ube Cheese Pie will be made available through GrabFood and Foodpanda as well.
