Uber will deliver locally-made ice cream to your door Friday


Uber is usually used to deliver people to and from places, but on Friday it'll be providing Minneapolis, St. Paul and 399 other cities across the globe an arguably better service: Ice cream delivery.

It works pretty much exactly the same as Uber's typical services. You pull up the app and set your location – just like you normally would – but be sure to request "ICE CREAM." You need to have the app though, you can sign up here.

Then within minutes of submitting your request, delicious ice cream will be delivered to your curbside.

You get four pops for $10.

And Uber is keeping it local and serving up Jonny Pops to Minnesotans. The company is based out of the Twin Cities and is made with all-natural ingredients.

The service runs Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. And in case you need a reminder, Uber's got your back. You can set one by clicking here and entering your phone number.

People can celebrate their ice cream deliveries with others around the world using #UberIceCream.

Jonny Pops also donates a portion of all its proceeds to Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation – which helps treat substance addiction.
