Generous Customers Support KaBOOM! at Fairytale Open House

fudge browniesFairytale Brownies was prepared with plenty of $1 rejects for customers to purchase at last week's Open House, and our customers didn't disappoint. Generous "promoters of play" donated $2,000 to the national nonprofit KaBOOM! in just three hours!

Fairytale Brownies and KaBOOM! have been play partners since 2001. Since that time, we have contributed more than $100,000, along with brownies, cookies and countless volunteer hours working toward building safe places for children to play within walking distance of every child in America.

Fairytale Brownies customers help us promote play by donating funds at the end of their online purchases. We match ever dollar donated, up to $5,000 at the end of the year. Visit here to learn more about giving the gift of play.

A big thank you to all though who came by to purchase rejects, sample product and say hello to the Fairytale crew. It was so nice to chat with all of you!

Here are some other photos from our Open House last week:

Send brownies as a branded office food gift

office food giftOn a recent visit to a client’s office, I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of snacks and sweets lying around. The kitchen was fully stocked with every munchies imaginable – from oatmeal to potato chips. And there was chocolate everywhere!

I must admit though. It wasn’t the best chocolate. I’m talking about those Halloween candy mixes. Meh.

I know exactly how I’ll thank that chocolate-loving client for their business moving forward. I’ll send brownie gift baskets with my logo on them! The next time you’re in the market for office food gifts, turn to Fairytale Brownies for a range of memorable options.

Fairytale Brownies Wedding Gift Favors are a Hit!

So as I've mentioned before, sometimes I'll post customer comments that have been sent to us via our website contact-us form. This really cute comment came in last night and it was too enjoyable not to share! Below is a comment sent to us regarding our brownie gift favors being a hit at her daughters wedding:

"My daughter was trying to decide on favors for her wedding that weren't going to be left behind or stuffed in drawers when people got home. Their theme was kind of fantasy (think Tolkein) and obviously Fairytale Brownies were a great tie-in. Everyone got a dark purple take out food box with a cookie, sprite or bar and two magic morsels, which was a perfect fit! The wedding was Saturday. Then it got a little weird! I came to a table and found seven grown-ups playing "I'll trade you a..." which then extended to the table next to them. At another table, by the time we were coming in for introductions, the boxes were empty with just the wrappers to show for them. . . before dinner! No...

10 amazing facts about brownies!

Sometimes at work with most of my focus on design, development and marketing, I sometimes forget that it's supposed to be a fun and lighthearted thing I'm doing. I mean we are talking about baking brownies, right? That's why I wanted to write about something fun today - so I decided to research fun facts about brownies. I was surprised at some of the facts I found, especially how the brownie was created. Who knew?! Hope you enjoy :)

  1. brownies There are three myths about the creation of brownies. #1, a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. #2, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And #3 and most popular, a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to service these "flattened" cakes to them. 
  2. The classic brownie consists of only butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs and flour. Unsweetened chocolate is normally used so more sugar is required to balance the bitterness.
  3. Fudgy brownies have minimum...

Fall in Love with Pumpkin Spice Brownies at Fairytale's Anniversary Open House

Twenty-two years ago, David Kravetz and Eileen Spitalny began their entrepreneurial adventure to bake the best gourmet brownies by co-founding the mail order company Fairytale Brownies. Today, their business not only bakes delicious fudge brownies, the duo has added chewy cookies and buttery blondie bars to the menu... all of which rival their delicious gourmet brownies.

For the past several years we've celebrated Fairytale Brownies' anniversary month with an Open House - sharing new packaging and new products, sampling all of our product flavors, and selling our "reject" brownies for $1. All proceeds from the sale of the rejects go to our national nonprofit partner KaBOOM!

Experience the Difference with Fairytale's Brownie Gift Basket

Because our fudge brownies, gourmet cookies and buttery blondie bars are baked with quality ingredients, and our packaging is custom designed, most people react animatedly when they receive a Fairytale Brownies gift. This reaction is all a part of the "Fairytale Experience." The following is a recent recipient's response when a brownie gift was sent to her from Kim Silva, Operations Team Leader:

OMG!

The Brownies!  OMG! 
My first brownie was the “Espresso Nib”. 
Just the right sweetness…
Just the right cake-like melt-in-your-mouth smoothness…
Just the right crunchiness…
UNBELIEVABLE!
I will be saving them in my freezer and doling them out to myself to savor for the next 6 months.  I will remember you and David with each bite!

But the Experience of JOY!  OMG!
You see, the package may have been delivered last night, but I received it this morning when Jasmine went outside.
The pristine packaging – the white box by my front door…
The name, Fairytale Brownies, Did someone want to send me...

3 fun facts about gourmet cookies

gourmet cookiesIf you’re reading this blog, I’d guess there’s not much you don’t know about cookies. I mean, you’re not just here for the brownie gifts are you? Considering our six flavors of gourmet cookies, I’d certainly hope not!

Well, if you’re in the mood for some fun facts about one of our favorite food gifts, you’re in luck. The folks over at Epicurious recently uncovered five little-known facts about chocolate chip cookies on a tour of the headquarters of Nestlé's Toll House Cookies in Solon, Ohio.

You can read her full article of five fun facts here, or get three of our favorite highlights below.

  1. Ruth Wakefield of Whitman, Mass., baked the first chocolate chip cookie ever in the 1930s when she added pieces of a chocolate bar into her cookie batter. 
  2. Size didn’t matter with the world’s first chocolate chip cookie. It was roughly the size of a quarter. Fortunately, the standard size of chocolate chip cookies has increased a bit over the years.
  3. The chocolate chip cookie is America's most popular cookie...

How cookie gifts make or break football seasons

cookie giftWhen it comes to college football, a cookie gift can make or break your season. No, really!

In the case of the University of Southern California, a cookie can giveth. And, in the case of the University of South Carolina, a cookie can almost taketh away.

Last December, we told you about Southern Cal’s winning streak that coincided with interim head coach Ed Orgeron’s decision to reinstate dessert at team meals. As the New York Times put it, "His reasoning: If you give a lineman a cookie, he’ll want to block for you.”

And just last month, cookie gifts crept into college football again.

According to the Associated Press, South Carolina just reported seven NCAA rules infractions committed by its football team. One violation related to “impermissible iced decorations on a cookie cake” given to high school recruits.

We’ll admit that we have no idea what that means. But it sure sounds delicious!

Fortunately for South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, it doesn’t look like the decision to order cookies will...
