In an announcement that made my day, Uber is experimenting with on-demand ice cream service this Friday. This new feature is in honor of National Ice Cream Month and will be available across the US in Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington DC.
Ice cream lovers can request ice cream by selecting the cone option in the Uber app and setting the desired delivery location. An ice cream truck will quickly deliver a minimum of 5 ice creams for $12, with an option to order more. The type of ice cream will depend on the nature of the local trucks, but considering it is ice cream we are talking about here, the likelihood of being disappointed is slim, although your waistline may no longer be.
