Last-minute Christmas gift idea: Ube desserts made with Good Shepherd’s crowd favorite ube

By Brooke Villanueva Published Dec 23, 2022 11:33 am

Need a last-minute gift idea for your friends with a sweet tooth? Here’s something that could brighten up their day as you give back. 

Good Shepherd’s ube jam has long been a crowd favorite and it’s a no-brainer why. This creamy offering has just the right amount of sweetness with nutty hints that keep it exciting. It’s good when it’s paired with bread or even enjoyed as is—what more if it’s used for cake and crinkles? 

If you’re still on the hunt for gifts for your ube-loving friends, you might want to drop by the Rockwell bazaar today, Dec. 23 to get your hands on Good Shepherd’s thrilling collaboration with Everything Nice Café. Included in the lineup is an Instagram-worthy ube cake available in two sizes—small tub (good for 1-2 pax) for P280 and big tub (good for 10-12 pax) for P1,200—with indulgent layers of chiffon, cream, and the famous halaya.

For those who love cookies, they also have ube crinkles priced between P220 (10 pieces) and P400 (24 pieces). It offers the same satisfaction from the usual crinkles with its crack from the outside and chewiness on the inside, except that this one spotlights the much-loved rich, fudgy ube in every bite.

Every purchase of these ube offerings will support the Good Shepherd Convent as the Christmas spirit is very much alive. "It's a time for giving that's why we thought of doing a joint CSR project that would help the children with cancer in Baguio and the 105 scholars of Good Shepherd," Robbie Pantaleon, the Baguio-based cafe's president and general manager told PhilSTAR L!fe.

The ube lineup is also available in Baguio (SM Baguio and Camp John Hay) as well as Alabang (South Supermarket). You may also order it online with a two-day lead time.
