Starting Friday, Uber users in 10 lucky cities around North America can summon a limited-edition ice cream cone from the ride-sharing app that unlocks free treats from McDonald’s through September.

Uber will add an ice cream option at 11 a.m. Friday in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington D.C. Uber's website says people who request ice cream and get matched will receive ice cream for up to four friends. They'll also receive a cone for free McDonald's soft-serve ice cream every Friday through Sept. 22.

Although Cincinnati didn't make the cut, Uber's website suggests checking its Cincinnati blog for any ice-cream related news and upcoming events.

Uber has offered occasional ice cream delivery since 2012, bringing more than 200,000 treats to cities around the world.
