End of Year - Teacher Food Gifts!

Last week was the last day of school for my son, Austin. We both were very excited becuase for the fourth year in a row Austin made Gilbert Golden Scholar, which means that in an academic year, he's required to get all A's and only 1 B. He's always excelled academically - I'm so proud of the kid.  Below is a picture of Austin holding up his Golden Scholar certificate. 

During the course of the school year, I've become close with school administrators and with Austin's teachers. I'm an active parent and volunteer as much time as I can in his school activities. And as always when the school year comes to a close, I give my end-of-the-year teacher food gifts of Fairytale Brownies! This year, I brought the office staff a Fairytale Sprite 36, which are our half-size brownies. The fudgy brownies are individually wrapped, so they are the perfect office gift! For Austin's teachers, I gave each one a Thank You gift favor, to thank them for their hard work and dedication to education! Fairytale...

Tempe Chamber members nosh, network, and net a sweet deal

The Fairytale Brownies bakery was buzzing with conversation before store hours this morning when 43 Tempe Chamber of Commerce members attended a morning mixer in our retail store for food and networking.

Of course, fudgy brownies and chewy cookies from Fairytale were on the menu! Fresh fruit and bagels from Chompie's rounded out the morning meal.

While chatting and eating, visitors were able to watch our bakers prepare cookies and gourmet brownies through the bakery's viewing windows.

Chamber members gathered in a circle to introduce themselves with a 15- to 30-second commercial, and names were drawn for raffle prizes. (This was my favorite part because I won a free consultation with McMurdie Law Office!)

Other prizes included fudgy chocolate brownies from Fairytale, a gift certificate from Cookies From Home, gift certificates from Dave & Buster's, a surprise gift bag from State Farm Insurance, and a gift certificate from Studio ADT.

Fairytale Brownies offered Chamber members 20% off...

Gourmet Brownies spotted everywhere!

Magic MorselsYesterday I received a text from my good friend who just happened to be at Phoenix Children's Hospital in the Dermatology clinic. With the photo attached, his text read, "As seen in the Dermatology Clinic at PCH." It makes me smile big when my friends say, "Hey, I saw Fairytale Brownies at _____" (fill in the blank). Here is the photo (at left) that my friend Judd took with his phone and sent to me. I'm not surprised that these are our Magic Morsels, 1.5" x 1.5" gourmet brownies, because they are bite-size and excellent for sending to offices or hospital staff for that perfect chocolate pick-me-up!

And....

Last week I re-connected with an old high school friend on Facebook. She still lives in Southern California where I am from, and I have moved on to Phoenix, AZ. After she looked at my Facebook profile, she sent me a message saying, "OMG, you work for Fairytale Brownies!" As it turns out, her 10-year-old son (who is Autistic) saw our segment on Food TV's Unwrapped last year and has...Read More

Thank You Gift Idea

Recently, my husband and I purchased a small piece of Real Estate in the small town of Queen Creek, AZ. Due to the economy, it was an extremely arduous task to complete the entire purchase process. We really "worked" our realtor; she definitely earned her commission on that deal! On document signing day, my husband and I went to the title office to complete the paperwork. We went after I had gotten off of work and I was still "in uniform" (still wearing my Fairytale Brownies logo shirt). The ladies in the office noticed my shirt, and commented that they knew who Fairytale Brownies were and proceeded to harass me because I had not brought any of our Belgian Chocolate Brownies with me! 

So, as I do every time somebody asks me for a fudgy chocolate brownie sample, I promised that I would send brownies to their office right away. So to say "Thank You" to our realtor, loan officer, and title company, we sent them each boxes of Fairytale Brownies. Not only are they the best brownies around...Read More

Customer Raves!

Listen to this awesome comment that a customer just sent to our customer service department! Whoa!  

"I sent your brownies to my husbands office staff for Secretaries week! Their first response was those were the best brownies I have ever tasted in my life! They were fresh, chewy, and so chocolaty! They all have your email address and plan to order brownies for the next special occasion they have. I saw the Food Network (Unwrapped) episode  and got the idea to send them. Thank you, Thank you!! You made my husband look like a 'hero.' I will continue to use you whenever I need that 'special gift.'"
