The holiday season is a magical time … and a busy one at Fairytale Brownies. We ship brownie gifts by the truckload during the holidays. Many are shipped as Christmas gifts. But, of course, many are shipped for other reasons.
That’s why we have four beautiful and unique gift bands that are perfect for brownies shipped in December. What message do you want to send this holiday season?

This year, American Jews will celebrate something that has never happened before . . . and will never happen again. The first day of Hanukkah 2013 starts at sunset on Wednesday November 27th the night before Thanksgiving, Thursday November 28th.
Historically, Thanksgiving is the 4th Thursday in November, meaning the latest it can be is November 28th. As it turns out, November 28th is the earliest Hanukkah can be.
According to this source, The Jewish calendar repeats on a 19-year cycle, and Thanksgiving repeats on a 7-year cycle, which you'd expect these two holidays to coincide every 133 years (19x7). So, the last time this would have happened would have been in 1861. However, Thanksgiving wasn't established until 1863. Furthermore, moving forward, the Jewish calendar is slowly getting out of sync with the solar calendar (there's a long technical explanation for this which I'll spare you), so this colliding of holiday's will never happen again!
However you're celebrating this historic...Read More »

In our case, childhood friends David Kravetz and Eileen Spitalny launched Fairytale Brownies in the fall of 1992. They baked late at night in a friend’s catering kitchen. With the support of family, friends, and a secret family recipe, they built the successful business that Fairytale Brownies is today.
Our success took hard work, perseverance, and at least a little bit of luck.
That’s why we were struck by the story of Valorie Mitts of Oak Park, Ill. In 2008, Valerie was forced to close the Lil’ Red Wagon Coffee House.
Fortunately, Valerie refused to give up her dream.
According to the Forest Park Patch, she reopened the Lil’ Red Wagon Coffee House in April of this year and business is booming. The coffee shop sells sandwiches, wraps, soups, and muffins, but the focus is on Valerie’s unique cookie creations. She’s...Read More »
