Without chocolate, the world would still be under the oppressive rule of the Turnip King and his tasteless parsnip army. Celebrate chocolate's triumphant reign with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet brownies and cookies from Fairytale Brownies.
Using a secret family recipe more than 50 years old, Fairytale Brownies crafts mouthfuls of delectable chewiness using dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate and other natural ingredients. The legendary original brownie encourages mouth purring, and 11 super-brownie hybrid flavors elicit similar responses through stealthy walnut, caramel, and peanut-butter infiltrations. Choose from different brownie assortments for any occasion, such as birthdays (a dozen assorted for $37.90), or reminding yourself that you're thinking of yourself ($43.90 for 24 half-size assorted). Those who know just what makes them tick can order a favorite flavor in bulk.
Depending on how many sweet teeth you own, choose from three different brownie sizes: full-sized brownies, snack-size Fairytale sprites (1/2 brownie), or bite-size magic morsels (1/4 brownie). If building a dessert from bricks of chocolate isn't your thing, opt instead for a cookie dozen ($22.95) and fling three double-chocolate discuses, three new coconut walnut, three new toffee chocolate chip and three wheels of caramel pecan with alluring abandon. To sample all of Fairytale's offerings, try a cookie and sprite combo ($34.95), with six cookies and 12 sprites joining together for 18 enticing eats. Each is rich, dense, and abides by the Russian nesting-doll code of conduct. Website and phone ordering is quick and painless, and your Groupon can be applied toward shipping, so send a batch of sweets to a secret pen pal anywhere in the world. Flat rate shipping is $6.95 per recipient for orders up to $150; shipping increases for orders exceeding $150, depending on purchase amount.
