Cookie gift businesses grow out of recession

cookie giftsOur nation’s recent economic challenges proved to be a fertile time for entrepreneurs. We recently read about a pair of growing cookie gift businesses that got their start during the recession.

The stories of Carolyn's Cookie Co. and Kitchen Vixen Cookie Shop warmed our hearts. After all, we started in much the same way. We just wanted to ship brownies and cookie gifts to dessert lovers like us.

According to The Californian of Salinas, California, Carolyn Walker was inspired to transform her mother’s cookie recipes into a business after reading Seth Godin’s book Linchpin. Unlike many cookie gift entrepreneurs, Carolyn’s idea involved selling frozen cookie dough balls that can be kept in your freezer until you’re ready to prepare them.

Meanwhile, the News Miner of Fairbanks, Alaska, introduced us to Kitchen Vixen Cookie Shop owner Jen Krzmarzick. Jen bakes custom cookies, but that’s not all. Her unique angle is that she loves consulting with clients to help make the perfect cookie – by...

Send them to college with gourmet brownies!

It is almost that time again, back to school! For many people this means sending their bird from the nest, and off to college! It is a very exciting, but also a nerve racking time. For many freshmen, this will be their first time off on their own at a completely new place with all new people. When I was 18, I left my home of Phoenix, AZ and traveled to Seattle, WA to go to University of Washington where I knew no one. It was exciting, but also sometimes scary. I definitely got a little homesick at times!

Help comfort those brand spanking new freshman with a brownie gift basket from Fairytale Brownies! Ship brownies with them off to college and they will start making dorm friends instantly. No one can resist these fudgy bites of bliss, so it is a great ice-breaker for making new friends! The best part is you can send them brownie gifts all semester long.

Bake cookies on your patio or order a cookie delivery?

We ship brownies worldwide, but our bakery and retail location is in Phoenix, Arizona. While the rest of the country looks forward to summer all year, most Phoenicians are anxiously waiting fall and winter again. That is because it is reaching temperatures of 114 degrees right now! Yes, it is a dry heat, but whether you are in a dishwasher or oven it is still hot! And it does feel like an oven around here, so much so that our local news team decided they would try baking cookies outside using the Arizona heat alone!

ABC 15 Arizona put cookie dough on a baking sheet, and then placed it outside on their patio to cook for six hours. Some of their team then tried the cookies to see how it worked. Check out their video to see the brave tasters’ reactions.

Although it may be hot enough to bake cookies outside, we still use the ovens in our bakery to bake the best cookies around! With 6 moist, chewy cookie flavors to try, you are sure to find a favorite. So, it is up to you. Take the chance and...

Send brownies to your cousins for their special day

I grew up in a large Italian family in small town in northern New York. We seemed to be related to everyone.

cousins day, gourmet brownies, send brownies

The good thing about having a large family was being able to spend time with my cousins. It didn't matter whose house we visited - theirs or ours - there always was someone to hang out with and always something to do.

gourmet brownies, send browniesDid you know that July 24 is Cousin's Day? Now you have an excuse to send brownies to your favorite cousins to let them know you're thinking about them.

July 24 also is National Tequila Day. Because I like tequila, my perfect Cousin's Day would be to hang out with my cousins, eat gourmet brownies and drink tequila.

It would be a magical day. :)

More than just the best brownie, the best cookies and bars too!

Working for Fairytale Brownies, I am often asked what my favorite flavor is. Well hold on, flavor of what: brownies, cookies, or bars? I am surprised at how many people do not realize that besides making the best brownie ever, we also make delicious chewy cookies and soft, buttery blondie bars.

We may be well known for our brownies, but our cookies and bars are just as delicious. Doc O., from Paradise Valley, Arizona is a big fan of our Fairytale Bars. He said, "These bars are fabulously rich and moist. Worth every calorie!"  And Linda from Manteca, CA loves our cookies, "Sinfully good....everyone was all smiles when I served these cookies." So if you haven't tried our cookies and bars, what are you waiting for?!

Visit brownies.com and order cookies and bars to try. For cookies, I recommend the Fairytale Cookie Dozen. This gift comes with 2 each of our six divine flavors, so you can try them all and find your favorite! If you are interested in trying the bars, then go for the Fairytale...

Buy cookies. Don’t steal them from Subway.

send cookies in summery packagingWhen it comes time to send cookies to loved ones, there are a few approaches available. You can buy cookies from Fairytale Brownies. Or, you can follow the lead of two criminals who recently stole cookies from Subway.

(Hopefully, you’ll choose the former.)

That’s right. Earlier this summer, two different men in two different states stole cookies from Subway. That’s two cookie thefts in one week! Stick that in the “what is this world coming to” file.

According to the Sun Sentinel of South Florida, detectives in Broward County were on the hunt for a man who hopped the counter of a Subway to grab cash from the register after becoming enraged by the cost of his cookie.

That same week, in our home state of Arizona, Tucson News Now reported that a man stole an entire rack of cookies from Subway before fleeing on foot. (As a Sun Devil, I’m obliged to report that the man was wearing a University of Arizona sweatshirt.)

Remember kids. Crime doesn’t pay. If you want your own desserts, buy cookies in...

Pair Fudgy Chocolate Brownies with Ice Cream for National Ice Cream Day!

July 20 is National Ice Cream Day, the perfect excuse to beat the heat and enjoy some cool treats! This holiday was designated by Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Serve Pecan Blondies in Celebration of National Pecan Pie Day

blondie

Pecan Pie. Yes, it's normally a Thanksgiving Day dessert, but we're thinking about it in July because July 12th is National Pecan Pie Day.

If pecan pie isn't on your list of items to bake in July, you might want to save time and order a food gift of buttery brown sugar bars from Fairytale Brownies.

A Fairytale Brownies Pecan Blondie tastes so much like pecan pie, you might as well top it with vanilla ice cream and dig in. I believe Fairytale's Pecan Blondie recipe is so close to tasting like "real" pecan pie that the only ingredients missing are corn syrup and bourbon...

Hmm. Forget the corn syrup. But you might want to drink the bourbon by the pool while you savor your Pecan Blondie.
