Ice cream anyone?
Nothing quite encapsulates the memories of one’s childhood than enjoying ice cream with friends. This July 24th (Friday), the much loved transportation service Uber is taking you back to your childhood with ice cream on demand. Scheduled to run simultaneously in over 250 cities around the world, this will be Uber’s largest event of the year – and Uber Malaysia will be participating for the first time in this event.
While global in nature, #UberIceCream in Malaysia will feature a distinctly local flavour – flavours that all Malaysians will recognise and love. In Kuala Lumpur, Uber has joined forces with The Inside Scoop to deliver 3 distinct flavours to riders in the Klang Valley. These flavours are Chocolate Valrhona, Teh Tarik and Mango Lassi.
Uber users in Kuala Lumpur will have 2 options to pick from in the 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.
In Penang, Uber is partnering with Kochabi, a maker of traditional “ice-cream potong” to deliver that sense of nostalgia to rides with flavours such as durian, read bean and mango; while folks in Johor Bahru will get to indulge on ice cream from local favourite, Scoop Bar.
Users in Penang and JB will be charged RM25 for each ice cream delivery, and this will come together with the exclusive Uber merchandise
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. This is a global promotion with local flavour. In 253 cities, 58 countries and on 6 continents, ice cream is available at the tap of a button. On Friday, July 24, from 1pm – 9pm, Uber KL is bringing a frozen favorite to your doorstep. #uber_my #uberlove #uberondemand #uber #uberkl #kualalumpur #malaysia #icecreamyouscream #icecream
