ICE CREAM ALERT — Uber users who happen to be cold sweets fanatics can order ice cream sandwiches from Moojo on Friday, July 24. All they have to do is open the app from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and select "ice cream." The entire delivery is free for people with Capital One cards, otherwise it’s $20 for four ice cream sandwiches.
