#UberIceCream is back. That is, if you’re hankering for some ice cream on this hot summer day and you want it delivered Uber-style, you’re in luck. Even better: If you have a Capital One account, you get a cone on them on Friday.

“Consider this an invitation to chill out. Your office probably doesn’t have a slip n’ slide, and running through the sprinklers likely won’t go over well with your boss. Don’t sweat it — you can still feel like a kid again by ordering ice cream on demand with #UberIceCream,” according to Uber in a blog post.

This is the fourth year in a row that Uber has offered the confections via its ride-sharing service. “This is a global promotion with local flavor, and it’s as simple as ever: Tap a button, and get a brain freeze in hundreds of cities around the world,” the post continues.

From Uber:

  1. Open the Uber app on Friday, July 24, between 11am and 5pm
  2. Set your location and request ICE CREAM
  3. If connected, order away and Ice Cream will be delivered curbside in minutes

And it’s as easy as that.

In other Uber news, the app recently won its fight in New York City against Mayor Bill de Blasio over a proposed cap to the number of Uber cars made available to the public.
