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!

Taste of NFL - Party with a Purpose!

Ever since the Super Bowl came to Phoenix in 2008, Fairytale Brownies has been donating brownies to the Taste of NFL Event. Each year the money raised is shared with food banks  in each NFL team's home city. Thank you NFL and patrons!
My Atlanta friend Gena Berry with her magical touch orchestrates and coordinates all of the volunteers and chefs at this event. Wherever the Super Bowl is, Gena is...
Our gorumet brownie gifts are part of the back-of -the-house happening at Taste of NFL. VIPs of the evening will be receiving a Fairytale Dozen and we do hope they ship brownie gifts someday to spread the brownie word and the volunteers get a fudgy brownie treat when they need a little pick-me-up. They can choose between Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Original, Peanut Butter, Pecan or Cream Cheese.
This year's event will have over 3,000 guests in attendance and raise millions to fight hunger.
Go (fill in the blank)! Happy Super Bowl weekend - here in Phoenix my family will be doing potluck at the...

Cheers to 2012! Celebrating 20 Fairytale Years, here we come...

Once upon a time, I met my friend David. It was in the sunny land of Phoenix, Arizona.
We were friends instantly and now over 40 years later (wow!) we are still friends and also celebrating 20 years in business together!

Through our blog and facebook we will share customer stories, landmarks and memorable moments. Here's a couple of early photos. Street fairs and farmer's markets were our main ways of spreading the brownie word. And I carried brownies & flavor tests in my purse at all times. For many years Fairytale Brownies had a legend that was part of our marketing to share the multiple meanings of brownies (dense chocolate cake and helpful sprite/faires).

The Fairytale Legend
In the wee hours of night
The Fairytale Brownie gleams with delight
With his magic spoon in hand,
He creates the greatest brownies in all of Fairyland!

Brownie Gifts for your Thanksgiving Hostess!

Next week is Thanksgiving! The favorite holiday at our house. We have a regular gang of family and friends that come over, everyone contributes and our turkeys always come from Heritage Foods USA. I can order them online now but I remember when I used to get my turkey through the kitchen door at Rancho Pinot. So what to bring if you are a guest - bottle of wine and a box of fudge Fairytale Brownies would be my answer!
And very easy to do - visit our bakery on 48th St & Broadway from 9am-3pm next Monday to Wednesday before turkey day or even easier visit an AJ's Fine Foods or Whole Foods location.
They both sell our individually wrapped brownies (perfect for place settings) and AJ's for the holidays is carrying our Holiday or Christmas Half-Dozen -  the ultimate hostess gift!
Holiday Half Dozen - Christmas design also
And if you are not a Phoenician, just go to www.brownies.com - have fun feasting!

Thanks Phoenix for helping end childhood hunger! We're so sweet on you!

                                    Bake Sale Sign
Fairytale Brownies participated with Share our Strengh and conducted a
Great American Bake Sale this past Tuesday.
My daughter and some of her friends even got to go down to the local NBC station (KPNX) to share with viewers about the millions of hungry kids every day and invited Phoenicians to come buy brownie and cookie treats with the proceeds going to Share our Strength.
TV Taping
The goal was $500 and with the help of our awesome supportive community of media and friends (thank you Shauna at Jam!, she sent a new mail order customer) we raised $825. It was a ton of fun, too.
Fairytale Fans say we have the best brownies and for one day only they got to enjoy brownies and cookies created into treats such as a Rocky Road brownie or Peanut Butter Delight. There was also a triple brownie mint torte - woa! At my house we  took some shortbread, caramel sauce and topped it with a fudgy chcolate Fairytale Brownie to create a Millionaire Bar and some Magic Morsel ice...

Fairytale Pairings Party at Jam Old Town Scottsdale!

Eileen SpitalnyJammersThis week at Jam over Old Town Scottsdale, I shared our Fairytale story along with a pairing of our treats! Easy to do yourself; just order some Fairytale Truffles, Brownies & Cookies and have your own tasting party. A Truffle Bundle is the perfect item with all 3 tied up with a ribbon (available September 8th at brownies.com).

It was so much fun!!! And such an awesome group of Phoenicians; sweet eighth graders learning about being an entrepreneur, a banker sharing his chocolate side, an artist who swoons over cacao, neighborhood fans and a few more locals who love to hang out at Jam. Jam was described in Sunset magazine August 2011 as "a little joint with big spirit"!! Yes!! Here is a link to Jam AZ's Fairytale Brownies blog post. Click here.
