Ummm, yes and please.

You may have heard of Uber, the ride-on-demand service available in many cities including Philadelphia. Today, they are launching Uber Ice Cream, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: you summon an ice cream truck to you, on your whim.

The inside scoop:

  • Ice cream trucks will be on the road from 11 AM to 5 PM on Friday, July 19th
  • Demand for ice cream trucks will be very high and availability very limited. It may take multiple tries to find an available truck. Please be patient! We’ll be working all day to deliver as much ice cream as possible.
  • No cash required! Your ice creams will be charged directly to your Uber account.

From the sounds of it, the ice cream on-demand service will be in extremely high demand today– temperature 702 degrees. It’s $25 for five people (minimum), so this will be best suited for small offices or Delmon Young. Simply download the Uber app on your iPhone or Android to summon a truck full of tasty treats.

Take that, Tsarnaev:
