For anyone with a sweet tooth and specifically, you know that Sunday, July 17 is National Ice Cream Day. This Friday, Uber is offering to sweeten the celebration further through their campaign #UberIceCream. Uber ran a similar promotion last year where 250 cities were covered and this year, they’ve scaled that to more than 400 cities in 69 countries. If you’re in the US and love Magnum products, then you’re in for a nice treat.
