Thank your vacation host or hostess with gourmet brownies!

Summer is winding down, and what a summer it has been! Wonderful thing about the world of social media, we get to see all the fun vacations our friends and loved ones took. I hope everyone got some sort of fun adventure in before fall begins. I am super excited to be going to Minnesota in a few days to visit friends and family. 

When I vacation, it usually means someone is kind enough to put me up for a week or two. Yes, it would sometimes be nice to stay in a luxurious hotel, but we can't always afford that. Plus I often vacation specifically to see people I love, so staying with them is always a fun part of it! However, I know it can be challenging to host someone for week, so make sure you thank those who helped you have such a wonderful vacation. 

Send your hosts or hostesses gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies. We have made gifting very simple, just go online to brownies.com and order a brownie delivery! Your recipient will be delighted to receive gourmet brownies,...

5 Reasons to Gift Gourmet Brownies

Gift Gourmet Brownies

It's never been easier to send gourmet brownies to your friends, family and loved ones. Looking for a reason to gift gourmet brownies? Here are 5 to get you started: 

  1. Health Benefits of Chocolate: According to women's health mag, chocolate is now considered a "superfood!" Cacao, the bean chocolate is made from is packed with healthy chemicals like flavonoids and theobromine, which has disease-killing components. Stick to chocolate with at least 70% cacao, you'll reap the benefits. Fairytale Brownies are baked with Callebaut Dark Belgian Chocolate (pure - unsweetened). 
  2. Evoke childhood memories and sensations: According to howstuffworks, smells and tastes can bring on a flood of memories that influence people moods. Because we encounter most new smells and tastes in our youth, they often call up childhood memories. Childhood memories shape our lives, and reliving the  loving sensation of eating Mom's brownies after school is one that I want to relive as many times as possible.

Fudgy chocolate brownies or pie? You decide

Excuse us for getting a little nerdy here, but today is Pi Day. Get it? It’s March 14th. That’s 3/14. And the numeric version of pi is 3.14159 … You get the idea. fudgy chocolate brownies

At Fairytale Brownies, we don’t do pie. We do fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookies. And they are delicious. But, hey, we know there’s room for pie too, especially on Pi Day.

In a 2012 survey of 14,000 Americans, NPR found that our nation’s most popular pie is good old fashioned apple pie. That’s probably not surprising if you’re familiar with the saying, “It’s as American as apple pie.”

Seventeen percent of respondents listed apple as their favorite. Surprisingly, strawberry rhubarb came in second at 16 percent. Apple and strawberry rhubarb were followed in order by pumpkin (14 percent), cherry (11 percent), and blueberry (8 percent). Popular also-rans included pecan, peach, and key lime.

We don’t have beef with pie, whether it’s an American standard like apple pie or something a little strange like strawberry rhubarb.

A Twenty Year Fairytale with Fairytale Brownies!

I never thought I'd still be here, but twenty years later here I am still working at Fairytale Brownies, and what a Fairytale it's been!

This "Fairytale Journey" (as I call it) began when I answered a want ad in the Arizona State University school paper.  At the time I was hired to sell our delicious gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies at street fairs, festivals and farmer's markets across the Valley.  I also helped out wherever I was needed - in a small entrepreneurial start-up, everyone does everything.  Some days that meant cracking eggs to help Mike (Eileen's husband and our first baker) and Ron (neighborhood friend, baker, band member) in the kitchen, delivering brownies to grocery stores, working our tiny retail shop, taking orders over the phone. . . the list goes on and on!  As the word got out and we attended more events, people began asking if we would ship Fairytale Brownies to family and friends, so we did, and that's how the mail order aspect of the business came to be.  Now...

Well, we’re not the only ones working hard to deliver the goods on Valentine’s Day.

This year, we offer a special salute to Bomber Girls LRC of Savannah, Georgia. The Bomber Girls spend the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day collecting home-baked cookies to create delicious gift baskets for our troops serving overseas.

The group’s creative call to arms is: “Fire up your ovens to send the troops some Lovin'.”

The tradition started six years ago with 300 dozen cookies finding their ways into the hands and stomachs of men and women serving our country overseas. By 2012, the number of cookie deliveries had skyrocketed to 6,000 dozen!

Baking that many cookies requires a nationwide effort! Debbie Will of Porter County in northwest Indiana contributed dozens of chocolate chip cookies, plus a 2-pound bag of large dog treats,...

Delivery brownies and cookie gifts with a hint of mint

There’s just something about the combination of rich chocolate and cool, refreshing mint. No wonder someone had the bright idea of proclaiming February 19 as Chocolate Mint Day. delivery browneis with mint chocolate
