"Today at Firebrand in Oakland! Chocolate covered pretzels in caramel ice cream from noon to 2pm (or while it lasts). @firebrandbread’s NEW ice cream is all yours and it’s complimentary from 12-2pm at Firebrand Bakery in Oakland. Yup, F-R-double-e sounds free to me. Today only. Put down your phone and go! #lickthat #chocolate #pretzel #caramel #icecream 👅🍫🥨"
