3 Things Your Boss Wants to Know about Gourmet Brownies

gourmet brownies, brownie giftWhen you give your boss Fairytale Brownies for Boss's Day on Thursday, he or she might want to know why you chose gourmet brownies as a gift:

1. Fairytale Brownies are baked with Callebaut brand Belgian dark chocolate, the finest chocolate makers for more than 100 years. Fairytale is a fine brownie baker for 22 years! Bosses love success stories, especially when they're delicious.

2. The definition of "gourmet" as an adjective: involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation. Bosses appreciate high-quality work from their employees, so they more than likely will love high-quality (or gourmet) brownies.

3. Your boss took a chance and hired YOU out of all of the candidates applying for your position. You were the "gourmet" of the group. Recognizing the boss's good taste in hiring practices by giving gourmet brownies is just the right thing to do. Send a brownie gift for Boss's Day.

Experience the Difference with Fairytale's Brownie Gift Basket

Because our fudge brownies, gourmet cookies and buttery blondie bars are baked with quality ingredients, and our packaging is custom designed, most people react animatedly when they receive a Fairytale Brownies gift. This reaction is all a part of the "Fairytale Experience." The following is a recent recipient's response when a brownie gift was sent to her from Kim Silva, Operations Team Leader:

OMG!

The Brownies!  OMG! 
My first brownie was the “Espresso Nib”. 
Just the right sweetness…
Just the right cake-like melt-in-your-mouth smoothness…
Just the right crunchiness…
UNBELIEVABLE!
I will be saving them in my freezer and doling them out to myself to savor for the next 6 months.  I will remember you and David with each bite!

But the Experience of JOY!  OMG!
You see, the package may have been delivered last night, but I received it this morning when Jasmine went outside.
The pristine packaging – the white box by my front door…
The name, Fairytale Brownies, Did someone want to send me...

Gourmet brownies to celebrate 40 years of marriage!

My parents are celebrating their 40thwedding anniversary! They truly are an inspiration to the lovers out there.  They always filled our home with so much love, and my brother and I are lucky to have them as examples in our lives.

My parents always say, “Don’t get us anything!”  But special occasions like this one deserve recognition, so I had to send them some delicious gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies! My mom is a diabetic but thankfully we offer sugar free brownies! I sent them our Happy Anniversary Morsel 36 and opted to choose my own flavors! This is a great feature that allows me to customize the gift based on my parents’ needs and tastes. I made sure half of the delicious bite-size morsels were sugar-free so my mom can enjoy them, and chose non sugar free flavors, like caramel and chocolate chip, so my dad gets what he wants as well.

Delicious gourmet brownies hand-packed and wrapped in an elegant Happy Anniversary Band, delivered right to their door, what a...

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...

Well, if you’re in the mood for some fun facts about one of our favorite food gifts, you’re in luck. The folks over at Epicurious recently uncovered five little-known facts about chocolate chip cookies on a tour of the headquarters of Nestlé's Toll House Cookies in Solon, Ohio.

You can read her full article of five fun facts here, or get three of our favorite highlights below.

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...

Rich, Callebuat Belgian chocolate vs. Spicy Mexican Chocolate

Having traveled to Los Cabos, Mexico recently, I noticed many delicious confections made with Mexican chocolate that I was dying to try. This got me wondering what exactly Mexican chocolate was and how did it differ from the rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate that Fairytale Brownies uses to bake our decadent treats. Here's what I found:

Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a grainy, less smooth chocolate. It is frequently bought in disks, though you can also purchase the chocolate in bar and syrup form. The traditional uses for Mexican chocolate are hot drinks such as Atole (served with tamales), Champurrado (served as a dessert with churros or a sweet bread called Pan Dulce) and Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Mexican Chocolate

Other popular uses for Mexican chocolate are in Tejate (a cold drink made of dark chocolate, corn masa, cocoa flowers, then marinated and frothed), and Mole (a sauce filled with spices, tomato and...

Operations Summit Experiences A Taste of Pure Enchantment!

Each year small and large busineses alike attend the Operations Summit Conference; the only conference exclusively about Direct-to-Customer operations & fulfillment. This years conference was held in Indianapolis, IN from April 22 - 24, and Fairytale Brownies co-founder David Kravetz attended. Not only did David attend, but he also was the speaker at a few sessions regarding the challenges of running a small business in today's economic climate, in addition to hosting a round table lunch which discussed legacy software management. 

Of course you can't discuss the in's and out's of a gourmet brownie business without having plenty of samples to pass around for the guests. Following David's speach, each attendee received an 8-Sprite gift favor to enjoy. Reviews from the operations summit were very positive. Here's an example: "The Operations Summit was a very good experience. I was able to talk to vendors and discuss possible solutions for issues we were experiencing. Also, the breakfast...
