Bringing Fudge Brownies to the people!

This last weekend I helped our Wholesale Department sample our delicious gourmet brownies at our local Arizona Costco Warehouses. We were at the Costco's in Chandler and Gilbert. It was really great to chat with customers who knew all about Fairytale Brownies and to hear how they send brownies to their friends and loved ones, and as corporate gifts. It was also nice to meet the folks who have never heard of Fairytale Brownies. It was awesome to see those who have never tasted our brownies before taste them for the first time! I know we made many many new brownie friends and fans over the last few days!

Below is a picture of Alyssa and I (yes, Costco food handlers policy is gloves and hairnets when sampling) having fun handing out our fudge brownie samples to Costco customers. If you missed us at Costco this weekend, we will be sampling at Whole Foods 7111 E. Mayo Blvd in Phoenix on August 13th from 11:00 am to 2:00pm. We'll be handing out more brownie samples and trying to get the word...Read More Ľ

It was a playful day at Fairytale Brownies

mafiaFairytale Brownies turned tropical today at our summer company party. Yes, it's still spring elsewhere in the country, but in Arizona the temperatures are in the 90s and 100s right now so it's SUMMER here.

Everyone was asked to wear a Hawaiian shirt or something "tropical" in keeping with our beach theme.

We all received leis, a beach ball, a squirt gun and a new Fairytale Brownies t-shirt with the FTB logo on the front, and "The Best Fairytales End in Chocolate" written on the back.

david David was in charge of grilling the burgers and dogs. Don't you like his Hawaiian apron? It was a gift from our friends at KaBOOM! after they built a playground in Hawaii.

While we waited for the food to grill, we started our Tricycle Races.

The competition was fierce.

Gourmet Brownies Get The Star Treatment

Last month we completed the photo shoot for our upcoming fall catalogs.  Twice a year we take new photography for our website and catalogs - once in April or May for the fall catalogs, and once in October for the spring/summer catalogs.  Each photo shoot takes months of preparation.  It all starts with deciding on our new products for the next year.  We are always trying to create new brownie gifts for our customers.  And with the introduction of Fairytale Cookies last year, we are also creating new cookie gifts.

Once our new gifts are chosen, we work on getting prototypes made.  If it's a new flavor of fudgy chocolate brownies, then our Baking Team needs to complete test batches for the photos.  If it's new custom gift packaging, then we need to design the packaging and request handmade prototypes from the manufacturer.  All of this took place earlier in the year.  

We are excited to be introducing some great new products this fall! ¬†Our brownies will now include two new flavors of...Read More Ľ

Dazzle your clients with delicious Brownie Gifts!

Ever think about Fairytale Brownies as corporate gifts? After reading the rave below from a recent Thank You Brownie Dozen customer, you'll wonder why you didn't think of it sooner! 

"Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! You are marvelous! This is the first order I have placed for Fairytale Brownies - as a special thank you food gift by special request for a new client. Not only are the brownies themselves wonderful and beautifully packaged (I ordered the Thank You Dozen), but the customer service representative I worked with went out of her way to add my order to the days' overnight delivery even though it was after your cut-off time for the day - ensuring that I received them on time, enabling me to dazzle my client! Smiles all around! Thank you, Jeanne M, Cleveland OH." 

Fairytale Brownies gourmet brownie gifts are a great way to impress, or in this case, dazzle your clients. Visit brownies.com/custom for more information!

Fairytale Babies!

This has been an extremely eventful week here at Fairytale Brownies.  As our loyal readers know, one of our Customer Service Team members is having a baby.  Well, she's due anytime now, and we decided to throw her a Fairytale Surprise Party!


Needless to day, any good party here at Fairytale includes the best brownies on earth!  (No, the cake is cake, brownies were later.)  Tanika was so surprised and pleased...and I hope Mackel will be pleased with all the love shown by all our people here, and I'm sure he will be.

On Tuesday, we're kicking our season into high gear with the arrival of our seasonal employees here in Customer Service. They will be here until just before Christmas to help us send brownies, cookies, and all of our other corporate food gifts for the holiday season.  We have one who is with us for his fourth season, and has started with us already!  Welcome back Tony "The Confrontation" Sanders!   

As a side note, Rosh Hashanah will commence at sundown on September 8th this...Read More Ľ

Cookie Delivery Begins This Fall!

Well, after 17 years of creating the best brownie gifts anywhere, we've decided to branch out.  Fairytale Brownies began with just two flavors - walnut and plain.  Since that time we've expanded our line to include 12 flavors in three sizes (Original 3" x 3" Brownies, snack-size 3" x 1.5" Fairytale Sprites, and bite-size 1.5" x 1.5" Magic Morsels).  We've also introduced brownie trays and our most recent creation - Fairytale Truffles (bite-size gourmet brownies completely enrobed in 60% dark belgian chocolate).

After much soul searching we decided it was time to branch out beyond our brownie beginnings.  Customers sending thank you food gifts kept asking for more variety.  So the next logical step was cookies.  But these couldn't be just any cookies - they had to be worth of the Fairytale name. So after months of testing, baking, evaluating and tasting hundreds of cookie experiments, we've created two decadent and delicious cookie flavors:  Caramel Pecan and Double Chocolate.
