What we love about it

We got to try the Ube Frozen Brazo in a Can and what we love about it is that it isn't your typical frozen brazo de mercedes where ice cream is usually used. This one has a layer of ube ice cream and a thick layer of real ube custard that adds creamy textures and a hint of earthiness to each bite. 

Much to our surprise, this isn't cloyingly sweet, so don't be surprised if you keep scooping spoonful after spoonful after spoonful-basically, it can get addicting. The meringue is fluffy and melts in the mouth, and the combination of ube custard on top of the ube ice cream will surely make any self-confessed ube fan jumping for joy.


Where you can get it's Ube Frozen Brazo Cake is available for P550/6x2-inch cake, while the Ube Brazo Cupcakes are available for P300/box of four. You can place your order by filling up their official order form found on their official Instagram page.
