Some might be surprised, but those familiar with Ube [OO-beh]—the name purple yams are known by in the Philippines—know that it’s a very popular flavor in jams, cakes, candies…and ice cream! It’s sweet & nutty-tasting, with hints of an almost coconut-like flavor; some liken it to a cross between vanilla & pistachio. We use real ube purée, and you can rest easy knowing that its purple hue is from naturally derived ingredients, like grape extract & beet juice.

You know what else is naturally derived? The pure joy you’ll experience as you devour your first scoop. We’re selling pints of this limited-edition indulgence for $2.99 each.
