Send some fudge brownie love to those you love on Grandparents Day

"Grandparents are a delightful blend of laughter, caring deeds, wonderful stories, and love." - Author Unknown

fudge brownies, grandparents dayIf you're lucky enough to live near your grandparents, let them know how special they are with a visit on Sunday, Grandparents Day. Depending on how active the grandparents are, your day could be as strenuous as listening to music on the living room couch, or playing football in the park.

Even if you don't live close to your grandparents, let them know you're thinking of them by sending a gourmet gift from Fairytale Brownies. What a treat it would be to receive a delicious batch of fudge brownies or a cookie gift from a loved one. Usually it's the Grandma that bakes the dessert!

I'm not a grandparent yet, but many friends and most of my siblings have been granted that honor. I've seen the love they have for their children and it doesn't compare to the love they have for the grandchildren. It's like someone sprinkled fairy dust on them and their "happy place" IS their...

Thank your vacation host or hostess with gourmet brownies!

Summer is winding down, and what a summer it has been! Wonderful thing about the world of social media, we get to see all the fun vacations our friends and loved ones took. I hope everyone got some sort of fun adventure in before fall begins. I am super excited to be going to Minnesota in a few days to visit friends and family. 

When I vacation, it usually means someone is kind enough to put me up for a week or two. Yes, it would sometimes be nice to stay in a luxurious hotel, but we can't always afford that. Plus I often vacation specifically to see people I love, so staying with them is always a fun part of it! However, I know it can be challenging to host someone for week, so make sure you thank those who helped you have such a wonderful vacation. 

Send your hosts or hostesses gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies. We have made gifting very simple, just go online to brownies.com and order a brownie delivery! Your recipient will be delighted to receive gourmet brownies,...

Fudgy chocolate brownies are a great student care package

student care package of browniesAlthough I live near Fairytale Brownies headquarters and my alma matre of Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., I spend my summers in Seattle. Believe it or not, it’s rather hot back home at this time of year.

Late last month, I was invited to a Sun Devil Send-Off event in Seattle. The event offered recent Seattle area high school graduates the chance to ask local alumni like me about their college experience and make friends with other incoming students before heading south to Arizona. 

The Seattle event was one of more than three dozen send-offs from New York City to Shanghai, China.

What a great idea. Right?

After all, college is hard enough on new students. Living away from home. Cooking and cleaning for yourself. Maybe even studying from time to time.

At Fairytale Brownies, we think a great way to help your student warm to college life is with a student care package of fudgy chocolate brownies wrapped in a festive good luck band.  

A single well-timed fudgy chocolate brownie can...

New Gourmet Brownie Gifts for Fall!

We are busy right now at the Fairytale Bakery, gearing up for the busiest time of year: the Fall/Holiday Season. This has always been my favorite time of year. Probably because growing up in Phoenix, it means the temperature outside finally drops out of the 100s. But I also really love the colors and flavors of fall, the fun of Halloween, the delicious food of Thanksgiving, and of course all the festivities around the Holiday season!

We have some great new products coming out this Fall and Holiday season to help you celebrate and enjoy this great time of year! Starting with Fall, we have a new and amazing seasonal brownie flavor coming out: Pumpkin Spice. My colleague Alyssa was at a sampling of this flavor. Check out the response to this delicious new gourmet brownie.

We also have new favor gifts for Halloween and Thanksgiving! Go beyond the candy bowl with gourmet brownies packed in a purple and white favor box with a festive “Happy Halloween” on the lid. And in November, send brownies...

Pumpkin Spice Fudge Brownies Are Just Weeks Away From Debut

fudge browniesOoh!

Aah!

You're killing me.

What IS that?

Mmmmm!

Oh, that is the bomb.

What a pleasure to hear people's reactions to tasting Fairytale Brownies' new Pumpkin Spice Brownie at a recent trade show in Long Beach, Calif. The new seasonal brownie debuts Sept. 2 and we gave show attendees a sneak preview.

Overall, the reviews were positive. On the first day of our show, we only had one person say he didn't care for the new flavor. He not only didn't care for it, he passionately said, "I hate it."

He brought his wife back with him to our booth on the second day and told her how much he hated the fudge brownie. He wanted her to sample it and give her opinion. She tasted it and loved it.

I get it. Not everyone likes pumpkin. Not everyone likes chocolate either. I can't imagine why, but to each his own. Personally, I LOVE pumpkin. I can't wait for the season of everything pumpkin to return. And now that Fairytale will have a Pumpkin Spice Brownie, I couldn't be happier.

Our Pumpkin Spice Brownie doesn't...

New Seasonal Gourmet Brownie Flavor Popular at SAAC Show

Last week we were in Long Beach for the SAAC Show 2014 - an international trade show for distributors of promotional products. This was our second year exhibiting, and I have to say that we enjoy everything about the show - the people, the venue, the location.

This year, we introduced our new Pumpkin Spice Brownie to all SAAC Show attendees. Although the gourmet brownies will not be available for purchase until Sept. 2, we wanted to share our NEW flavor ahead of time for when it debuts. Because the Pumpkin Spice Brownie is seasonal, it will only be available for purchase between Sept. 2 and Dec. 31.

pumpkin, gourmet brownieThe Pumpkin Spice Brownie was a hit with show attendees. Even those who said they don't like pumpkin pie said they liked the brownie because the pumpkin flavor isn't overpowering. Our Pumpkin Spice brownie begins with a rich, Belgian dark chocolate base. Then we take sweet pumpkin puree and blend it with cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger, and swirl it into the brownie...

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...
