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
- Open the Uber app on Friday, 24 July 2015, between 1pm and 9pm.
- Set your location and request ICE CREAM or ICE CREAM + SWAG.
- 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
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
