Baking Gourmet Brownies, Cookies & Bars for the Holiday Season!

As I walked around the facility today, I noticed all the hustle and bustle happening that is all in preparation for the Holiday season - - which is almost upon us! For the last few months of the year, Fairytale Brownies brings on quite a few seasonal team members which include customer service team members, baking team members and shipping team members. When this influx of personnel happens, it gets me really pumped for the coming season. I also really enjoy watching these folks craft our decadent desserts. Brownie, cookie and bar baking is truly an art! Here are a few pics that were snapped in our baking kitchen and shipping warehouse with some of our regular, full-time team members and some of our seasonal team members too.

Brownies Delivered - Worldwide!

We love to hear our customers' feedback after they've eaten or shared a Fairytale fudge brownie, chewy cookie or buttery bar. This message came from Megan S.:

brownies delivered"My mom sent a big box of brownies for me to share with my office at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. We work such long hours that we really need a boost from time to time, and getting mail is the most exciting part of our day (good excitment- there is plenty of bad excitment). We were all SO happy to get these brownies! People can't stop talking about how wonderful they are, and its been very distracting... one of our paralegals threatened to fall asleep at his desk since he ate three in a row and was full and happy and wanted a nap. Thanks for the great brownies, and thanks for making the extra effort to ship them all the way to Afghanistan."

Soon after I asked her if we could print her comment, she replied with another one:

"People keep coming to my desk today to ask me if I have more. (I only have a few left out of my big box, so I...

Send Brownies to help "burn the midnight oil"

The summer months are huge for me as that's when I am tasked with planning and completing improvements to the brownies.com website. Starting in September, website traffic significantly increases because that's when our new Fall/Holiday catalogs drop in-home (if you're not on our mailing list, join here), and our new gift packaging and brownie/bar/cookie flavors become available. The new things happening this year are: New Fairytale Bar flavors: Lemon Blondie and Cinnamon Crumb, New Sparkling Towers, New Fairytale Towers, New Wish Box, New Celebrate The Season Band, and New Happy New Year Band. Click here for more info on our new products.

Aside of the new gifts becoming available, the marketing department brainstorms what kind of improvements we'd like to have for the website, and I have the summer months to manage those programming projects. Depending on the size of the project, I have several people that I work hand-in-hand with to get large functionality changes complete. I work...

Ship brownies or bars to white chocolate-loving friends

raspberry white chocolate barIf ever there was a flavor overshadowed by its big brother, it was white chocolate. Seriously, real chocolate will always get top billing … except on September 22. That’s when the nation – well, some of it – celebrates White Chocolate Day.

Fairytale Brownies offers multiple ways to celebrate White Chocolate Day. We ship brownies and bars as gourmet gifts featuring white chocolate. There’ll be more on that in a minute. But first, in honor of White Chocolate Day and courtesy of Wikipedia, here are three fun facts about white chocolate:

  • In the U.S., there are regulations governing what may be marketed as "white chocolate. For example, white chocolate must be at least 20% cocoa butter.
  • White chocolate was invented by the Nestlé company in Switzerland. The first white chocolate bar debuted in 1930.
  • White chocolate makes an absolutely delicious gourmet gift. OK. This one wasn’t from Wikipedia. We made it up because we love white chocolate!

Wanna know more about white chocolate gourmet gift...

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!
