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,...

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...

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!

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...

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...
