Global ride sharing service Uber will once again expand their role to ice cream delivery man. Following suit to an initiative the company ran last year, the transportation king pins will personally deliver tubs of Giapo Hokey Pokey Ice Cream to users throughout five cities across the country.

New users of the app will benefit the most from the promotion, receiving either $20 off their first ride, or two complimentary tubs of creamy delight upon signing up with the code “ICECREAMNZ". Existing Uber users will have to pay $20 for the service when selecting the ice cream option in the 'Promotions' section on the app.

Uber reports they have five times more ice cream up for grabs than last year. The service will be available this Friday 24 July between 11am – 5pm through Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown* while stocks last.

As well as rarking taxi providers across the world, the company is known for going above and beyond their role as a personalised driver service, employing a number of novelty promotions like a gourmet lunches delivery servicekittens and the option to take a ride with Optimus Prime.

To get your sweet treat, simply download the Uber app and create an account.

*For Queenstown, they are delivering ice creams via dog sled!!!! Apparently a world first. Mush! Mush!
