The Fairytale Brownies Journey continues!

Hi, my name is Eileen Joy Spitalny, Co-Founder of Fairytale Brownies. Friends since kindergarten, David and I started baking these brownies together in 1992 in a friend’s catering kitchen. 

 
Back in high school we talked about starting our own business together someday. We always worked & played well together (homework, extra credit, animation projects) so when we grew up we did it! 
 
Creating and growing Fairytale Brownies has been an amazing journey; can’t believe we are in year 20!
 
We didn’t even know how to bake when we started and now with our fantastic Fairytale crew, we bake and ship over 3 million brownies and cookies a year.
 
My role is to find new brownie clients and friends so I look forward to meeting you sometime soon. Whether personal or business, we will help you make friends and customers happy anywhere in the world.
 
It’s also lots of fun to talk with fellow entrepreneurs and share experiences, stories, trials and tribulations. If you want to talk, sample, share or ask a question, send me a note here or at eileen@brownies.com. Enjoy!

Spreading joy with mail order brownies

Here is a true Fairytale from our customer, Rosa, in Kentucky:

Once Upon a Time...

I ordered three dozen brownies last week, all going in a different direction. One dozen for myself, one dozen for our daughter Michelle and one dozen for our adopted daughter Carly. Our post office had been closed for one hour last Saturday when I realized my brownies were inside the post office. I squatted down, looked inside my post office box, heard a voice in the back and bribed the postman with the promise of a brownie if he would let me have my package, which he did. Today, Carly send me a video of our granddaughter Callan (14 months old) crying for one more bite of a Fairytale Brownie! She gave her a bite, threw the wrapper in the trash and the baby stood by the trash can crying.

Fairytale Brownies Dozen

Then I emailed Rosa, "May I share this story of spreading joy to your family through brownie deliveries, brownie bribes, little ones wanting more?" and "How did you first hear about us?"

She said...

Eileen, Yes you may share...

Brownies Delivered - Worldwide!

We love to hear our customers' feedback after they've eaten or shared a Fairytale fudge brownie, chewy cookie or buttery bar. This message came from Megan S.:

brownies delivered"My mom sent a big box of brownies for me to share with my office at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. We work such long hours that we really need a boost from time to time, and getting mail is the most exciting part of our day (good excitment- there is plenty of bad excitment). We were all SO happy to get these brownies! People can't stop talking about how wonderful they are, and its been very distracting... one of our paralegals threatened to fall asleep at his desk since he ate three in a row and was full and happy and wanted a nap. Thanks for the great brownies, and thanks for making the extra effort to ship them all the way to Afghanistan."

Soon after I asked her if we could print her comment, she replied with another one:

"People keep coming to my desk today to ask me if I have more. (I only have a few left out of my big box, so I...

We just wanted to bake the Best Brownies Ever...

When David & I quit our corporate jobs to be our own boss and create our own brand in 1992, we took his mom's brownie recipe with the goal of baking the best brownies in the world!

Millions and millions of Belgian Chocolate Fairytale Brownies later, we take the time to share with others what we have learned. Recently, the kids from the business class at Metro Tech High School visited and today I received a pile of thank you notes.

The notes reminded me how it is so much more than baking the best brownies ever... So many of the notes thanked me for helping them realize that with drive and perseverence you can go for what you want in life. You can make your own Fairytale come true, thanks for sweetening my day!

Recognition Gifts Testimonial

From Valley Leadership Development Office;

"Hi Eileen,

Thank you so much for your support of last week’s 64th Annual Man & Woman of the Year Luncheon, honoring Tom Ambrose and Ambassador Barbara Barrett.  We wanted to share some photos of our tables, dressed up with the delicious Fairytale Brownies!

The brownies were a huge hit, and guests are still talking about them today!  Most special, though, were the beautiful, celebratory towers that decorated our honorees’ tables and acted as a yummy gift to them.  I know Tom and Ambasador Barrett were delighted.

Valley Leadership is so appreciative of your support for this event, and excited about opportunities to partner with Fairytale Brownies in the future.  We cannot thank you enough for helping us add the extra touch to make last week’s event just a bit more special for all our guests!

Best Brownies for the Best People! Thank you Tom and Ambassador Barrett for being a part of our community."

Creating Fairytale Brownies recipe video was a tasty experience

Fairytale Brownies Browned Butter Cinnamon Cream Cheese FrostingWith each of our Spring/Summer catalog drops this year, the cover features a simple, yet delicious DIY recipe to enhance our gourmet Fairytale brownies, cookies and bars. Here is our Spring cover photo featuring the latest recipe, Fairytale Browned Butter Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting. David and I had a lot of fun making our latest recipe video -- This recipe is super yummy and only uses five ingredients.

I frosted fudge chocolate brownies and made sandwich cookies using several of our gourmet cookie flavors. Of course, we all sampled the creations when we were done, and my daughter took a few wrapped up to share with friends that day at the park.

If you would like to receive our Fairytale Brownies catalog, click here to get on the mailing list. For those with smart phones, we provide a QR code on page 2 of the catalog for quick reference to the recipe and video!
