    Passionfruit? Grape? Honey Lavender? Nope!  Purple Ice Cream has to be none other than the UBE flavor of the Philippines!

    Pinagong is a type of Filipino bread from Sariaya, a town in Quezon province.

    The name supposedly comes from the word pagong, meaning “turtle” — the shape is slightly reminiscent of the reptile. And the bread is crunchy on the outside, soft in the inside.
