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...

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!

Help comfort those brand spanking new freshman with a brownie gift basket from Fairytale Brownies! Ship brownies with them off to college and they will start making dorm friends instantly. No one can resist these fudgy bites of bliss, so it is a great ice-breaker for making new friends! The best part is you can send them brownie gifts all semester long. It is so easy to order online at brownies.com, and we have many occasions to choose from. Good Luck gifts are especially great...

Fudgy chocolate brownies are a great student care package

student care package of browniesAlthough I live near Fairytale Brownies headquarters and my alma matre of Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., I spend my summers in Seattle. Believe it or not, it’s rather hot back home at this time of year.

Late last month, I was invited to a Sun Devil Send-Off event in Seattle. The event offered recent Seattle area high school graduates the chance to ask local alumni like me about their college experience and make friends with other incoming students before heading south to Arizona. 

The Seattle event was one of more than three dozen send-offs from New York City to Shanghai, China.

What a great idea. Right?

After all, college is hard enough on new students. Living away from home. Cooking and cleaning for yourself. Maybe even studying from time to time.

At Fairytale Brownies, we think a great way to help your student warm to college life is with a student care package of fudgy chocolate brownies wrapped in a festive good luck band.  

A single well-timed fudgy chocolate brownie can...

Send brownies to your cousins for their special day

I grew up in a large Italian family in small town in northern New York. We seemed to be related to everyone.

cousins day, gourmet brownies, send brownies

The good thing about having a large family was being able to spend time with my cousins. It didn't matter whose house we visited - theirs or ours - there always was someone to hang out with and always something to do.

gourmet brownies, send browniesDid you know that July 24 is Cousin's Day? Now you have an excuse to send brownies to your favorite cousins to let them know you're thinking about them.

July 24 also is National Tequila Day. Because I like tequila, my perfect Cousin's Day would be to hang out with my cousins, eat gourmet brownies and drink tequila.

It would be a magical day. :)

Celebrate Chocolate Day with Belgian Chocolate Brownies

July 7th is Chocolate Day, and what better way to celebrate it than with some Belgian chocolate brownies from Fairytale Brownies? When you first take a bite of our rich, fudge brownies you will amaze at the decadent flavor. The reason our brownies taste so delicious is because we start with premium ingredients like farm-fresh eggs and real creamery butter. Of course the star ingredient is the chocolate, more specifically, imported Callebaut Belgian dark chocolate!

When you taste Fairytale Brownies the chocolate is sweet and oh so yummy, but did you know the chocolate you taste actually came from a vegetable? Yes, chocolate is produced from the exotic cocoa bean trees which grow in the warm and humid equatorial belt. The trees produce cocoa beans, and the seeds inside are harvested, dried, cleaned, and then roasted. The shell is then removed to produce cocoa nibs, which are then put into grinders so that they can first be ground coarsely, then to a super fine cocoa liquor. Cocoa butter...

Buy cookies. Don’t steal them from Subway.

send cookies in summery packagingWhen it comes time to send cookies to loved ones, there are a few approaches available. You can buy cookies from Fairytale Brownies. Or, you can follow the lead of two criminals who recently stole cookies from Subway.

(Hopefully, you’ll choose the former.)

That’s right. Earlier this summer, two different men in two different states stole cookies from Subway. That’s two cookie thefts in one week! Stick that in the “what is this world coming to” file.

According to the Sun Sentinel of South Florida, detectives in Broward County were on the hunt for a man who hopped the counter of a Subway to grab cash from the register after becoming enraged by the cost of his cookie.

That same week, in our home state of Arizona, Tucson News Now reported that a man stole an entire rack of cookies from Subway before fleeing on foot. (As a Sun Devil, I’m obliged to report that the man was wearing a University of Arizona sweatshirt.)

Remember kids. Crime doesn’t pay. If you want your own desserts, buy cookies in...
