Remember last year, when we all thought the pandemic was going to last two months tops, and we were all into ube pandesal and dalgona coffee?
Jollibee remembers those innocent days early in plague times, and today the ‘Bee announced a surprise new addition to their menu: ube cheese pie.
“We’re bringing the ube cheese craze back but with a crispy twist! Enjoy sweet & cheesy goodness in our signature crispy pie crust with the NEW Ube Cheese Pie!” Bestfriend Jollibee tweeted this morning, putting an end to two days of mystery after the official Jollibee Instagram account first hinted about the new flavor.
(We love, btw, Pia Wurtzbach’s enthusiastic—but ultimately mistaken—guesses.)
