Flavour of the Week: #UberIceCream

July 10, 2016 / Nigeria

Helado. Aisukurīmu. Crème glacée. Sorvete. No matter how you say it, ice cream is delicious in every language. There’s a shared love for this frozen treat – one that transcends seasons, borders, and cultures. That’s why one day every year Uber brings the ice cream to you – no matter where you are.


It’s that time of year again – #UberIceCream is coming to over 400 cities on Friday, 15 July 2016!


This year, we are thrilled to partner once again with Hans and Rene to deliver premium and indulgent ice cream scoops across the globe. From Auckland to Zurich, each city is adding their local flavour by making Ice Cream deliveries by land, sea and sky.
