Remember when you were a kid and you heard that magical ice cream truck jingle coming down the street? It was the best moment of any summer afternoon. You’d push your little brother out of the way and run inside the house screaming “MOM! THE ICE CREAM TRUCK IS COMING! THE ICE CREAM TRUCK IS COMING!”
It was very much like this:
There was just something awesome about that moment. As an adult, the ice cream truck has become the food trucks that line the streets of DC. Instead of pushing our siblings out of the way, we’re tossing interns aside and running out to Farragut Square for cupcakes and tacos.
Thanks to Uber the ice cream truck is back.
Starting today, in honor of National Ice Cream Month, Uber is rolling out ice cream trucks in major cities, including DC. The system is simple, you request the ice cream truck the same way you request a car. Open the app, click the ice cream cone icon, choose your location and wait patiently for the delicious ice cream that is on it’s way.
