Here’s the scoop on this popular ice cream from TJ’s!

Trader Joe’s Ube Ice Cream is back for a limited time only! This popular ice cream is unique for its uncommon ingredients (purple yams, beet juice and grape extract!), its naturally purple hue, and its sweet and earthy taste.

Ube (pronounced OO-beh) is a purple yam from the Philippines known for their rich color and mellow flavor. They’re a popular ingredient in jams, cakes, and candies and even ice cream!

Stetson (our fearless taste-tester and a notorious ice cream-lover) grabbed some Ube Ice Cream from Trader Joe’s to give it a try. Here’s what he had to say…

“This ice cream was very light and easy to scoop out. It had a vanilla/almond flavor that tastes really good in my opinion.”

This limited-edition flavor is currently available at Trader Joe’s for $2.99 per pint while supplies last. Keep your eyes open on your next grocery run and try some while you can!

    Yup it’s so good but oddly does cause me to bloat and feel gassy afterwards

    It’s Pronounced Oobe (purple yam) Ice cream :). Popular favorite of many in the Philippines.

    Trader Joe’s also has ube mochi pancake and waffle mix. I just got some of that and the ice cream. I read that the mix is much better for waffles than pancakes.
