Cinnamon Crumb Blondie Bars

My favorite gourmet treat that Fairytale Brownies bakes is the Cinnamon Crumb Blondie Bar. I am absolutely in love with it. I was reminded of my love for this tasty treat when I walked into work today and the fragrant aroma of spicy cinnamon mixed with crunchy walnuts wafted through the air. Lucky for me, today was my day for quality assurance. You see, in addition to my job duties as Web Designer and Marketer, I am also on the Quality Assurance Team. This means that once a week, I visit the baking department and taste what delicious treats they've baked that day. I score the product on Appearance, Taste, Texture, Smell, Aroma, and an overall Pass/Hold score. This is a very formal process that involves forms, score sheets, etc. But all of that formality aside, I can't wait to sink my teeth into freshly baked brownies, moist and chewy cookies and especially my favorite, sweet and buttery bars once a week.

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...
