Fairytale Brownies: A Review & Great Gift Idea

Recently, Rita from Chi Town Cheapskate wrote a really cool review of Fairytale Brownies Gourmet Brownie Gifts. I thought it was such a nice review, I decided to repost!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know about you but a nice chocolaty decadent brownie is my idea of the ultimate indulgence and an excellent stress reliever. The brownies from Fairytale Brownies certainly fit the bill!

For my review I was sent a Classic Tower with consisted of:

(6) Fairytale Brownies
(6) Fairytale Sprites
(6) Magic Morsels
(4) Fairytale Cookies
(4) Fairytale Bars

The package arrived in a very nice tower of boxes as pictured above.  When it arrived we were literally just headed out the door for a camping trip and I planned on bringing it along as a treat to share around the fire. It didn’t happen quite that way. My family insisted they could not wait and had to have a taste before we left. Much...

Cross-Country Gourmet Brownie Gifts Buzz!

Last week, my husband, daughter and I packed up and headed east on a vacation to visit the majority of our family in 4 states (Illinois, Indiana, Connecticut and New Jersey) in one week. I wish we had hopped on a train for a moment so we could say we traveled via planes, trains and automobiles, but we didn't think about it while we were near one. Two out of three isn't bad, though. 

Most of the people we saw are family and friends who have received mail order brownies from us at some point in time, so most of them had recently received a Fairytale Brownies gourmet food gifts catalog in the mail. Nearly everyone we saw commented on the recent Winter catalog, and wanted to know how our new Fairytale Bars taste. The answer? Amazing, of course!

I now know that our families will be very happy to receive their holiday bar & brownie gifts from us next month. I can also say that I tasted a brownie from a very famous bakery in New York City, and I still think we have the best brownies around.

Jazz Up Your Brownie Gifts!

walnut Fairytale brownies and ice cream

We're working on our catalogs for Spring 2013 now, and we took a different approach to our cover photos this year. We've always featured our gourmet brownies, bars and cookies on the covers as serving suggestions (like the brownie ice cream sundae at left) for our recipients to use when their mail order brownies are delivered. This time, we decided to create actual recipes that you can use at home to jazz up your Fairytale Brownies gifts. 

So, when you receive our spring catalogs in your mailbox (If you aren't on the list yet, sign up here), you will see delicious-looking concoctions on the cover, with an actual recipe on page 2 and online at brownies.com! I won't spoil any of the recipes we actually chose, but until then, here are a couple of things you can do with your goodies when you receive your holiday brownie, bar and cookie gifts next month. Just skip the baking part, use your Fairytale Brownies and get right to the delicious additions!

The ooey gooey recipes will be available to our customers when they receive their mail order brownie catalogs next spring! Here's a peek at the process of creating a gourmet cookie and brownie ice cream sundae. 

Food stylist Kim builds the perfect Belgian chocolate brownie (Raspberry Swirl) and cookie (Double Chocolate) sundae with raspberry sauce and sugared raspberries at her work table.

mail-order-brownies-google-catalogs

Today I got an email that our Fairytale Brownies catalog (request your Autumn catalog now) is being featured in the Editor's Pick on the Google Catalogs tablet app, which made me think it's been a while since I blogged about our catalog's availability on tablets. It is a great way for you tablet users to shop our catalogs even if you aren't on our mailing list.

Since they are currently featuring our mail order brownie catalog right now, I'll start with Google. You can download Google Catalogs for Android tablets or iPads here. A desktop version is also coming soon. The app houses many catalogs in lots of different categories for one-stop shopping for clothes, gifts and even furniture. 

Fairytale Brownies' catalogs are also available on the Catalog Spree, Catalogue and Coffee Table apps. This is just one of the many ways we are trying to make it easy for everyone to order brownies, bars and cookies for friends and family around the world.  I know you will find just the thank you food...

Brownies Delivered entices new Fairytale fans!

 This week's customer story was written by Michelle Dragon:

Brownies DeliveredIn December of 2009, while at work, the property manager had brownies delivered, and came through the building saying, "Merry Christmas!" I grabbed one, not even realizing there were different flavors. But I got Toffee which is my very favorite!

After I inhaled it, the guy in the cube across from me said, "Oh, great. These are all natural," as he closely inspected his wrapper. Feeling a bit foolish that I didn't look at my wrapper except to see TOFFEE, I grabbed mine to take a closer look while telling him I obviously had my priorities in order once I heard chocolate - I ate it!

I went home ranting about how good this brownie was and that I had to have another. Since I had taken a closer look at my wrapper thanks to my neighbor, I knew what to Google. I knew I could have brownies delivered, but once we found out the company was local, we just drove to bakery and spent a whole lot bringing home Brownies, Sprites, Truffles and...
