Gourmet brownies to celebrate 40 years of marriage!

My parents are celebrating their 40thwedding anniversary! They truly are an inspiration to the lovers out there.  They always filled our home with so much love, and my brother and I are lucky to have them as examples in our lives.

My parents always say, “Don’t get us anything!”  But special occasions like this one deserve recognition, so I had to send them some delicious gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies! My mom is a diabetic but thankfully we offer sugar free brownies! I sent them our Happy Anniversary Morsel 36 and opted to choose my own flavors! This is a great feature that allows me to customize the gift based on my parents’ needs and tastes. I made sure half of the delicious bite-size morsels were sugar-free so my mom can enjoy them, and chose non sugar free flavors, like caramel and chocolate chip, so my dad gets what he wants as well.

Delicious gourmet brownies hand-packed and wrapped in an elegant Happy Anniversary Band, delivered right to their door, what a...

Fudgy chocolate brownies are a great student care package

student care package of browniesAlthough I live near Fairytale Brownies headquarters and my alma matre of Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., I spend my summers in Seattle. Believe it or not, it’s rather hot back home at this time of year.

Late last month, I was invited to a Sun Devil Send-Off event in Seattle. The event offered recent Seattle area high school graduates the chance to ask local alumni like me about their college experience and make friends with other incoming students before heading south to Arizona. 

The Seattle event was one of more than three dozen send-offs from New York City to Shanghai, China.

What a great idea. Right?

After all, college is hard enough on new students. Living away from home. Cooking and cleaning for yourself. Maybe even studying from time to time.

At Fairytale Brownies, we think a great way to help your student warm to college life is with a student care package of fudgy chocolate brownies wrapped in a festive good luck band.  

A single well-timed fudgy chocolate brownie can...
