Jollibee’s seasonal Tuna Pie is back just in time for the start of the Lent. In case you didn’t notice, the fast-food giant brings back their famous Tuna Pie before the season of reflection and preparation for Easter begins. I think I was in college when this pie was released. Growing up in a strict Catholic family, I would observe fasting and abstinence. This simply means we do not eat red meat on all Fridays. Since I was studying at that time, Jollibee Tuna Pie became my go-to meal when I get hungry.
Jollibee once again surprised us with some new pie variants – BREAKFAST PIES to be exact. They currently offer Cheesy Bacon Pie and Cheesy Corned Beef Pie priced at Php 49/each. I wasn’t able to get my hands on these during its launch yesterday (November 4) because it was a crazy day. Jollibee had a promo where they gave away free pies from 9 AM to 9:30 AM. Since it’s only available at breakfast and there were several people, I decided to avail it the next day.
Buko pie is a two-crust pie filled with sliced buko in custard. This pie originated from Los Baños, Laguna. But if you can’t visit Laguna or don’t have a Colette’s Buko Pie at Pasalubong nearby, the closest you can get is Jollibee’s newest pie variant.
