Spring is a time for rebirth, renewal — and lots and lots of chocolate.

Now, Uber is getting in on the action. Cargo, the exclusive in-car vendor for Uber, will offer free samples of chocolate Easter egg candies starting Monday during rides in select cities – Reese’s Peanut Butter eggs and Cadbury Creme eggs, specifically.

Here’s the full list of cities that will offer free chocolate eggs in Uber rides:

  • New York City

  • Chicago

  • Boston

  • Washington, D.C.

  • Baltimore

  • Minneapolis

  • Los Angeles

  • San Francisco

  • Atlanta

  • Miami

  • Dallas   

Cargo, the company that partnered with Uber to supply chocolates for this promotional event, is part of a burgeoning business model where vendors sell snacks, drinks, and other essentials such as headphones and phone chargers in ride-hailing cars. You purchase items through a mobile website, then the driver hands you the goods.

The free chocolate is only available until supplies run out, so the treats may be gobbled up early in the week — fair warning. You’ll know when they’re available because they’ll be sitting in the Cargo box in center car console.

The other catch if your’e on the hunt for this free candy: you can’t order an Uber car and know that Cargo is available inside, so you just have to hope you get lucky. 

Can you resist the Reese’s.
