Fear the fork or fear the tree; but tailgate with Fairytale Brownies

It's a big weekend for both college football fans and art festival fans in Arizona. Arizona State University will play Stanford on Saturday to see which team will go to the 100th Rose Bowl, and thousands will attend the 45th Annual Tempe Festival of the Arts along Mill Avenue.

gourmet browniesFairytale Brownies is partial to both events for several reasons.

1. Co-founders Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz used to sell gourmet brownies at street fairs and festivals - specifically at the Tempe Festival of the Arts - when they first began the Fairytale Brownies business 21 years ago.

2. David Kravetz graduated from Stanford University.

3. Many Fairytale Brownies team members (several of us in the Marketing Department and our Operations Team Leader) graduated from Arizona State University.

4. Eileen Spitalny is a member of the Creative Impact Board for the ASU Art Museum.

5. Fairytale Brownies was a finalist for the ASU Spirit of Enterprise Award.

6. Our Senior Web Designer Hilary Lee teaches at ASU.

Fairytale Brownies Holiday Season Blast From the Past!

As we approach the month of December and the upcoming holidays, I find myself reminiscing about the one season we actually ran out of brownies, believe it or not!!!

It was 1997 and we were a few years into the business when we had an unexpected rush on brownies for the holidays, so mid-December we actually ran out of some of our brownie flavors.  We were unable to bake anymore of the delectable Belgian chocolate brownies because our very tiny commercial kitchen had been transformed into a shipping department.  We only had a limited selection of brownie flavors available, so we made due with what we had. . . . Needless to say, we've never forgotten "the season we ran out of brownies".  We've definitely come a long way since then and now occupy a large production facility with plenty of space for baking and shipping, so we plan to never have that problem again!

If you've been a fan of Fairytale Brownies for a while you know that we no longer just carry our famous brownies, but over the...

Give thanks now and save 20%!

Instead of sending holiday gifts to clients in December, many businesses are opting to ship their brownie gifts in November.

brownie giftsThat seems logical, since November is the month of Thanksgiving. Businesses generally send food gifts to thank customers and clients for their business, referrals, or loyalty.

Sending a Fairytale Brownies gift early is a good idea because you’ll beat the influx of other holiday treats. That means more time to savor the fudge brownies, soft and chewy cookies and buttery blondie bars!

Right now, you can save 20% on all of Fairytale Brownies Thank You gifts. Purchase any Thank You gift through Nov. 18, using the source code ML643, and the discount will be applied. The gift does NOT need to ship by the 18th, so you can plan ahead and still save 20%.

You’re welcome!

The entrepreneurial dream behind our brownie gifts

order brownies from a small businessFairytale Brownies began like many businesses do. Before we were shipping brownie gifts and cookie baskets around the globe, we were just an entrepreneurial dream.  

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...

Send brownies to your boss – or Michael Scott – on Boss’s Day

72 gourmet cookiesOctober 16 is an important day in offices across America. That’s the day we celebrate the men and women who cut the paychecks.

That’s right. October 16 is Boss’s Day, the perfect day to show your appreciation – or just do a little brown-nosing – by sending gourmet brownies or cookie gifts to the guy or gal in the big office down the hall.

While you consider how you’ll recognize Boss’s Day, here are five of our favorite business quotes from one our favorite bosses, Michael Scott of the sitcom The Office:

  • On leadership styles: “Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.”
  • On office equality: “You may look around and see two groups here: white collar, blue collar. But I don’t see it that way. And do you know why not? Because I’m collar-blind.”
  • On public speaking: “Sometimes I’ll start a sentence and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way.”
  • On office humor: “I love inside jokes. I’d love to be a part of one...
