Ice cream trucks are a staple of the American summer. And while you may no longer be a child, that doesn’t mean your taste buds can't appreciate a good rocket pop.

With that in mind, Uber is rolling out on-demand ice cream trucks July 19 from 11 am to 6 pm. Those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth simply need to select the Ice Cream option on the updated version of the Uber app. This will bring a truck to their location and provide five frozen treats for $25.

Uber recommends sharing the ice cream with four coworkers or friends, but truck that noise, you can totally eat five Choco Tacos. It’s Friday and you’ve earned it.

On top of the ice cream, Uber will throw in some serious brand swag, including tank tops and sunglasses. It's the perfect time of year to show off your pythons and protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Sun's out, guns out is what my summer camp pottery instructor always said. 

First time users can also use the promo code ICECREAM to save $20 on their first ride.

Uber also released an update to its app that now allows riders to split fares, which is great for sharing rides with friends. But it’s probably not the best idea to use it on a first date.
