We've got some news! And no, it isn't that United's going to start serving gigantic 30-scoop ice cream sundaes. But close.

Following last month's devastating #Sundaegate announcement (in which United decided to suspend sundae service worldwide after its glass bowls started cracking), we finally have word that the airline's marquee premium-cabin dessert item will return — on July 1, some 36 days from now. The temporary solution: paper bowls.

While 36 days seems like an awfully long time to get these paper bowls into position, many business travelers will be relieved to hear that the build-your-own sundae service will be back in action soon. In the meantime, United's serving packaged ice cream in business and first class on domestic and international flights.

How will you be celebrating the ice cream sundae's triumphant return?
