Ship brownies and gourmet cookies to dessert-deprived Japan

Could you spend the rest of the summer without fudgy chocolate brownies or gourmet cookies? One of America’s closest friends could become a dessert desert in the near future. ship brownies to japan

Japan’s ministry of agriculture has sent out a distress signal for more wheat. Why? Because Japan imports up to 90 percent of its wheat from the U.S., Canada, and Australia and one upcoming shipment has been disapproved by the country’s ministry of agriculture.

So, according to Bloomberg, Asia’s second-largest importer of wheat badly needs an additional shipment of 2,000 metric tons … or else it risks a shortage of fudgy chocolate brownies, gourmet cookies, and other desserts that rely on imported wheat.

“We have to hedge the risk that Japanese flour millers will face a supply shortage because of the prolonged suspension of imports,” Hiromi Iwahama, the ministry of agriculture director of grain trading, told Bloomberg.

A shortage of desserts? That’s no way to spend a summer.

A Life Lesson in Chocolate

A small act of kindness yields many thanks by local students and makes my day! 

Walking into work after being out of the office for a week, my in-box was filled with papers, I had received 248 emails, 6 voice mails, and one large manila envelope addressed to me personally. Curiosity made me open the manila envelope first. Inside were hand made "Thank You" cards from local students who wanted to show their appreciation for me taking a little time out of my day to share my passion about chocolate. I was very touched by the personalization of the cards and smiled very big as I read each one :) In today's world of technology and most communication becoming electronic, it was heart warming and refreshing to know my small act of kindness yielded such thanks and in return, I  was the one who walked away with the greatest appreciation of all!

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.

Happy Anniversary -- Celebrate with Brownie Gifts

Happy Anniversary Brownie GiftsLast week, my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary; it's hard to believe it's been 5-years already. Seems like yesterday we were exchanging our vows and getting ready to start life as a married couple. Since we JUST bought a house last month, and we're still in the midst of unpacking, we decided to play our anniversary low key this year. Exchange small gifts, and the traditional celebration dinner.

I didn't hold up my end of the bargain on the small gift thing. My 'small' gift entailed of going to the nursery and buying him a new Citrus tree for the yard as well as a Rosemary plant for the deck. I also sent a Happy Anniversary Fairytale Brownies gift (Happy Anniversary Sprite Dozen) to his work. He is a choco-holic like myself, so he looks forward to the occasional brownie gift in the mail (I've cut down on bringing brownies home!). But we allow ourselves the occasional indulgence of gourmet treats when it's a special occasion.
