5 Reasons to Give Corporate Food Gifts Year Round

The days of giving corporate food gifts just during the holidays have long gone. Businesses send gifts for a variety of reasons and at various times throughout the year. Here are five reasons to use Fairytale Brownies corporate food gifts throughout the year:

corporate food gifts1. Welcome New Employees - You've recruited, interviewed and hired those new employees. Now it's time to welcome them to the team. Surprise them with a branded gourmet brownie gift sent to their home. They'll feel a part of the team before they even start their first day at work.

2. Reward Existing Employees - They're hard working, loyal and willing to go the extra mile. Show your employees a little appreciation for a job well done with a gourmet gift of fudge brownies, cookies or bars. Any time of year is the right time to say, "thank you."

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...

Potential employers meet ASU engineering students, sample fudge brownies

fudge brownies

For the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure of participating in the Arizona State University Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Career Fair. Twice a year, 2,500 engineering students have the opportunity to meet about 150 future employers from all over the country.

I bring plenty of fudge brownies and gourmet cookies to the fair for the students and visiting corporations. The fair is a great way for the students to learn what types career opportunities are available in either a full-time position or in paid or unpaid internships.

From Fairytale Brownies' viewpoint, the fair is an opportunity to be a part of the community and show attending corporations our gourmet brownie gifts and custom options.

We so enjoy collaborating with the folks at ASU School of Engineering. With each semester, our partnership strengthens and the business grows. Here's to a bright future with ASU!

Order Mint Chocolate Brownies for Mint Chocolate Day!

February 19th is Chocolate Mint Day. It is time to enjoy and celebrate the genius idea of combining these two delicious flavors. What better way to do this than indulging in a Mint Chocolate treat from Fairytale Brownies. We have both a Mint Chocolate Brownie and a Mint Chocolate Cookie.
 
Our Mint Chocolate Brownie is probably considered the best brownie for mint lovers. Cool mint is hand-drizzled over rich chocolate. Yum! If you are more of a cookie person than try the Mint Chocolate Cookie. Cocoa powder & pure peppermint oil create the perfect blend of richness & cool, mint bursts.
 
I know one of my favorite ways to enjoy mint chocolate is with an ice cream or, even better, an ice-cream shake. Co-founders Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz give you a great recipe and instructional video on how to make Fairytale Mint Chocolate Milkshakes.
 
Make sure to visit brownies.com and order these two delicious mint treats from the best brownie company. I recommend ordering the Bulk Mint Chocolate...

Cookie deliveries for the troops on Valentine’s Day

The weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day are busy at Fairytale Brownies as we hand pack and ship brownie and cookie deliveries for sweethearts around the country and globe. gift basket for valentines day

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,...

Donate Fairytale savings to support play when ordering brownies online

Most people remember to give back to their communities during the holidays. But communities, and specifically nonprofits, need help year round.

brownies onlineAs many of our customers are aware, Fairytale Brownies is a partner with the national nonprofit KaBOOM! - an organization that builds safe play spaces within walking distance of every child in America. Fairytale donates funds and brownies each year to help build those play spaces.

When customers purchase brownies online, they have the option to donate funds to KaBOOM! at checkout. Last month, one of our corporate customers chose to donate to KaBOOM! the amount they saved in Fairytale discounts. Now Fairytale Brownies will match that amount up to $5,000.

We thought this was such a good idea that we wanted to share it with all of you. The next time you place your order for brownies online or even if you call in to order with one of our friendly customer service people, donate your savings to KaBOOM! and help save play.

Of course, KaBOOM! is only one...
