Here’s the scoop: #UberIceCream is back

Chances are you can’t have a water gun fight inside your office, and running through the rain likely won’t go over well with your boss. Don’t sweat it — you can still feel like a kid again with #UberIceCream.

While global in nature, UberIceCream in Kuala Lumpur will have a distinctly local flavour to it – flavours that Malaysians of all ages will recognise and love. Uber has partnered up with The Inside Scoop, producers of artisanal, handmade ice cream, to deliver 3 distinct flavours to riders in the Klang Valley: Chocolate Valrhona (decadent, rich chocolate – loved by young and old); Teh Tarik (Malaysia’s favourite drink made into an ice cream? Yes, please) and Mango Lassi (sweet and tangy all at once). Users will have 2 options to choose from in the Uber app – ‘Ice Cream’, which is priced at RM20 per serving of 3 cups of ice cream, and the ‘Ice Cream+SWAG’ option, which will include ice cream and exclusive Uber merchandise, priced at RM25.

How it Works

  1. Open the Uber app on Friday, 24 July 2015, between 1pm and 9pm.
  2. Set your location and request ICE CREAM or ICE CREAM + SWAG.
  3. If there is an available vehicle in your area, you will receive your ice cream in minutes.

“We believe in using technology to bring joy to people. Regardless of our culture and background, we all have that same childhood memory – enjoying ice cream with friends and family after a meal or a game of badminton, queuing up in front of the ice cream truck on a hot sunny day just for that special flavour you’ve always craved. With the tap of a button on your smartphone, we want to help you relive those memories and enjoy that special moment with your friends,” says Leon Foong, General Manager of Uber KL.

Demand is expected to be very high, so don’t give up if Uber Ice Cream is not available immediately. Keep trying! And lastly, be part of the worldwide #UberIceCream community – share your cooling experience and be sure to tag us on Twitter (@uber_my) and Instagram (@uber_my) with #UberIceCream
