Thank you food gifts for soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors

patriotic brownies as thank you food giftsMemorial Day is a time to remember and honor the many men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

At Fairytale Brownies, we respect and appreciate the sacrifice of our military members. In addition to offering our brownie gifts and cookie baskets in patriotic red, white, and blue packaging, we send 10 thank you food gifts to U.S. soldiers deployed worldwide every month.

This initiative is conducted through Soldiers' Angels, which is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families.

Soldiers’ Angels was founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers. Today, hundreds of thousands of "Angel" volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of ways.

We’re proud to do our part to support our brave military personnel. Thank you for all you do.

It’s easy for you to send patriotic...

Sugar free brownies or cookies delivered for Walnut Day

Sugar Free Brownies with WalnutsToday is National Walnut Day! At Fairytale Brownies, we offer three ways to celebrate the walnut. Our Walnut Brownies and Sugar-Free Walnut Morsels are fudgy chocolate brownies piled high with premium grade walnut halves.

Our third choice is my personal favorite. Our Coconut Walnut Cookies are delivered with toasty walnuts, sweet coconut flakes and rich chocolate cocoa forming a blend of flavors with a velvety smooth finish.

Yum! Now, courtesy of the California Walnut Commission, here are four fun facts about walnuts.

  • Walnuts are the oldest tree food known to man, dating back to 7000 B.C. The Romans referred to walnuts as Juglans regia or Jupiter’s royal acorn.
  • More than 99% of the walnuts in the U.S. are grown in California’s Central Valley. California supplies two-thirds of all the world’s walnuts.
  • After a walnut sapling is planted, it takes five to seven years for it to grow into an adult tree suitable for harvesting. I’d say they’re worth the wait!
  • Always store walnuts in a cool place....

Fairytale Brownies offers tours for corporate customers

order brownies, gourmet brownies

Most people ordering corporate or business gifts online never realize all the TLC and Fairytale magic put into those custom food gifts. For our corporate customers interested in getting to know us better, we open our doors and roll out the purple carpet for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Fairytale Bakery.

The most recent VIP tour was given to the great people at Chicago Title in Chandler, Ariz. They watched firsthand as our fudge brownies, gourmet cookies and buttery bars were being baked, hand packed in our custom-designed packaging and shipped.

As a finale for our tours, we share our Custom Fairytale Gift line with the touring company. In this instance, Chicago Title experienced what their clients or employees will feel when receiving mail order brownies from them. We can print any color logo or photo directly onto a favor box or keepsake tin, onto a gift band for our classic boxes or onto a tower gift tag.

If your company is interested in buying brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies...

3 thank you food gifts for pecan lovers

Pecan brownie giftsWant to send a thank you food gift to your accountant this month? How about the IRS? Just be sure to include pecans. After all, those IRS guys are awfully nutty and it is April. Everyone knows that April is National Pecan Month. Right?

Fairytale Brownies is your go-to gourmet gift source for pecan-packed treats. We add a layer of fresh, crunchy pecans to our Pecan Brownies and Pecan Blondie Bars. And our Caramel Pecan Cookies might be the perfect thank you gift for April because April 5 is National Caramel Day.

Courtesy of the National Pecan Shellers Association, here are some fun facts and figures about one of our favorite nuts:

  • You’d have to stack 11,624 pecans to reach the top of New York’s Empire State Building. Meanwhile, it’d take 144 million pecans to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
  • Texas adopted the pecan tree as its state tree in 1919. Texas Governor James Hogg loved pecans so much that he asked for a pecan tree to be planted at his gravesite.
  • The U.S. produces about 80...

3 Ways to Celebrate Easter with Gourmet Brownies

magic morsel easter eggsI can't believe t's almost Easter already (the first of two in my house - my husband is Greek, so in a few more weeks we'll celebrate Greek Easter, too)! I have to admit, Easter was always one of my favorite holidays as a kid. I loved hunting for eggs, LOVED marshmallow Peeps (still do), and I've always loved the idea of new beginnings. I also loved spring in the Midwest, as the ground thawed and little signs of new life and budding plants were everywhere. I don't get that part in Phoenix this time of year (it's already 90 degrees), but I do still have that sense of new beginnings. And an urge to declutter! But I digress.

One thing I have grown to love in the nearly seven years I've worked here at Fairytale Brownies is finding ways to incorporate our fudgy chocolate brownies into our Easter celebrations. Here are three ways to celebrate Easter with our gourmet brownies:

  • Purchase mail order brownies to share with family and friends who join you for your Easter festivities. We have a wide...

Send Brownies as a Random Act of Kindness

People are busy with Valentine's Day, but did you know that February 17 is Random Acts of Kindness Day? This is a holiday everyone can get behind. It can be simple random acts like smiling at strangers or holding the door open for others. Other ideas include paying the tab for the person behind you in line, or volunteering your time at a food kitchen. Personally, I think it is a great day to thank those around you or to get back in touch with an old aquaitenance. So what better way to do this but with a gourmet food gift. Surprise someone with a cookie delivery, or send brownies!

Here at Fairytale Brownies we have a variety of different gourmet gifts. I recommend one of our Thank You Gifts or Thinking About You Gifts. A small gesture can go a long way, and people will really apprecite and enjoy it. So remember to incorporate random acts of kindess into your week, and even make it a year round habit. A little kindness can go a long way!  Image credit.
