For a couple of years now, Uber's been delivering ice cream on demand for one day to anyone who calls up its ice cream truck through its apps. Well, this once-a-year event is back, and it's now reaching more people across the globe, even in places where Uber's services aren't usually available. This July 18th, Uber will have ice cream trucks going around 144 cities in 38 countries (last year's event included only 33 cities), serving a variety of treats like gelato on sticks, sundaes and froyo. In Manila, Philippines, the ride-sharing company's even taking the chance to do some charity work by donating all the truck's proceeds to victims of Typhoon Glenda. Since each region will offer its own frozen goodies at different prices, it's best to check the Uber blog to know what time you can conjure up the ice cream truck and how much it's going to eat up from your weekly budget.
