Can a bake-off inspire a 13th gourmet brownie flavor?

12 gourmet browniesAt Fairytale Brownies, we love stories about best brownie contests. It just gets us all fired up about getting back into the test kitchen.

It’s true! It takes both inspiration and perspiration to add to our lineup of 12 gourmet brownie flavors. (You can try all 12 with a Fairytale Dozen.)

The Kansas City Star recently reported on a best brownie contest among culinary students at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. Kansas dessert manufacturer Tippin’s put up $1,000 as a prize for the contest.

This wasn’t your standard brownie bake-off though. All brownies had to meet commercial requirements as though they’d be distributed through grocery stores.

According to the Kansas City Star, the students didn’t let that limitation hold them back. Instead, they created brownies that were “fudge-y, cake-y, dusted with powdered sugar, thickly frosted, sprinkled with nuts, drizzled with caramel, layered with coconut, infused with raspberry jam and topped with whipped cream and cherries.”

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...

Comments about Fairytale Brownies Patriotic Sprite 24: This shipment was a very timely Fairytale Brownie "fix". These brownies are now my standard birthday gift, but we had not had an actual shipment delivered to us in a very long time. Our family really loves these gourmet brownies. We love the variety in that there is something for everyone. I was also able to share some fudge brownies with a dear friend of mine who was moving out of town. I put some in a pretty gift bag and delivered them to her on the day she was leaving. FT brownies helped make her trip a little easier. We love you, Fairytale Brownies!

Comments about Fairytale Brownies http://www.brownies.com: I used your fudge brownies to tell my subordinate leaders thank you for a job well done in my absence recently. They love my baking and since we're deployed I couldn't give them what they wanted. I thought I'd find some way to give them a special thank you treat and you were the God sent answer for me and their sweet toothes. Thanks A MILLION for such fast service. They were surprised and fell in love with your baked goods. I've told many of my girlfriends about your products and website. Expect more offers from them in the very near future. Best wishes and thanks for your support.

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. It is so easy to order online at brownies.com, and we have many occasions to choose from. Good Luck gifts are especially great...
