Banned from Elyria’s cookie craze? Order cookies by mail from us

chocolate cookies by mailOhio’s Elyria City School District recently found itself in hot water with the federal government. The district’s popular pink cookies – loaded with butter, sugar, vegetable shortening, and sour cream – were deemed unhealthy by new federal guidelines for school cafeterias.

As a result, Elyria’s best cookie was banned from the district’s 16 schools. And, as is so often the case, demand only grew once the cookies were banned. It didn’t hurt that national media outlets, including Fox News and newspapers nationwide, ran with the story.

According to the Chronicle-Telegram of Lorain County, Ohio, the school district received over 100 calls and emails from across North America requesting the pink cookies by mail.

If you can’t get a hold of Elyria’s banned pink cookies, we’ve got you covered. With Fairytale Brownies, you can order cookies by mail in a variety of flavors.

Double Chocolate is one of our best cookie flavors. They certainly go over well in the Phoenix home of Fairytale Brownies regular...

Fall in Love with Pumpkin Spice Brownies at Fairytale's Anniversary Open House

Twenty-two years ago, David Kravetz and Eileen Spitalny began their entrepreneurial adventure to bake the best gourmet brownies by co-founding the mail order company Fairytale Brownies. Today, their business not only bakes delicious fudge brownies, the duo has added chewy cookies and buttery blondie bars to the menu... all of which rival their delicious gourmet brownies.

For the past several years we've celebrated Fairytale Brownies' anniversary month with an Open House - sharing new packaging and new products, sampling all of our product flavors, and selling our "reject" brownies for $1. All proceeds from the sale of the rejects go to our national nonprofit partner KaBOOM!

Capturing the Deliciousness of Gourmet Brownies Through Photography

Most of Fairytale Brownies business is done through mail order. Many people order brownies, cookies and bars online at brownies.com or through a catalog before they even taste them. So it's really important that we have excellent photos of our gourmet desserts. Since you can’t taste the treats, we need to convey just how yummy they are through visuals!

Twice a year, my team and I spend one to two weeks with a professional photographer and food stylists to create the most delicious looking photography that we can. When your brownie delivery arrives, you can tell just by looking at them how great they are going to be, but capturing that in an image takes a lot of time and work. However, it is also a lot of fun!

Our gourmet brownies, cookies and bars really are the stars of the shoot. We spend time making sure each treat looks its best! Of course with all those gourmet brownies around, it is impossible not to treat ourselves to some sweets. After making them look so irresistible how can I not...

A Twenty Year Fairytale with Fairytale Brownies!

I never thought I'd still be here, but twenty years later here I am still working at Fairytale Brownies, and what a Fairytale it's been!

This "Fairytale Journey" (as I call it) began when I answered a want ad in the Arizona State University school paper.  At the time I was hired to sell our delicious gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies at street fairs, festivals and farmer's markets across the Valley.  I also helped out wherever I was needed - in a small entrepreneurial start-up, everyone does everything.  Some days that meant cracking eggs to help Mike (Eileen's husband and our first baker) and Ron (neighborhood friend, baker, band member) in the kitchen, delivering brownies to grocery stores, working our tiny retail shop, taking orders over the phone. . . the list goes on and on!  As the word got out and we attended more events, people began asking if we would ship Fairytale Brownies to family and friends, so we did, and that's how the mail order aspect of the business came to be.  Now...

Printing Catalogs for Gourmet Brownie Gifts

I was fortunate enough to join my collegaue Erin on a trip to Minominee Falls, Wisconsin to check on the printing of our catalogs for the upcoming Fall/Holiday season! We spent time looking over each page of our delicous gourmet brownies, cookies, and bars and making sure our brownie gifts look as good as they taste. It is a good thing we brought some with us, because it is hard looking at so many pages of delicious treats and not wanting to eat some!

BOTTOM LINE: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating: 5 Stars

Comments about Fairytale Brownies Birthday Sprite & Morsel Combo: I heard about mail order Fairytale Brownies from my husband's SGM, and sent him a brownie gift to Afghanastan for his birthday. There were so many choices that immediately after I pressed send, I placed another order for the Birthday Cookie and Brownie Combo as a second delivery surprise.

My husband received his brownie gifts two days apart, but LOVED them. He hated that he had a PT test and could not eat them immediately, but once it was over, the brownies only lasted about three days:) I loved that the shipping was free to APO addresses. Thank you for supporting our troops!

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...
