Guess how many birthday gifts I had to buy last week alone? Two! It’s true—there are historically more births (and therefore, birthdays) in August and September than any other months.

I sent both of my birthday friends the Sweetest Slice Box. The presentation is fabulous and it’s perfect for any age, boy, girl, man, woman alike. I like to say it’s like having your cake and cookie, too.

Our exclusive birthday sale for blog readers is still going on. Browse our entire collection of Birthday Gifts and use code BBDAY20 at checkout for 20% off any item in the collection!

Now tell me, whose birthdays are you celebrating this month?

America's Favorite Past Time & America's Favorite Cookies

Let’s travel back to the 1970s in Oakland, California. (Do you have your feathered hair and bell bottoms ready?) There we’ll find a young Debbi Sivyer, Oakland A’s ball girl and cookie hobbyist. Debbi often brought her soon-to-be-famous chocolate chip cookies to the umpires during the game. The A’s were building a baseball dynasty, and Debbi was on her way to build a cookie dynasty too.

You know what they say, the rest is history.

If you’re in Oakland, you can revisit the past with us this weekend at Saturday’s A’s game. We’re turning back the clock with the Oakland A’s on June 26th, serving up our famous cookies at the umpires meeting at home plate for old time’s sake. We’re also surprising a lucky section of fans with free cookies. That’s what we call a guaranteed win.

If you’re in the Oakland area, we hope to see you there!

End-of-School Thanks

This time of year, when the school year draws to a close, it seems that there are so many people to thank.

There’s the science teacher who went above and beyond all year long, and the administration office who let you know when lunch money had been forgotten. All ninety-eight times.

Sleek Stripes Thank You Tin

There’s the bus driver who circled the block every time you stuck a “one more minute” finger out the door, or when a much-needed orchestra instrument was mistakenly left on the kitchen counter.

There’s the art teacher who discovered latent talent, a shy desire, and pushed for growth that could have been overlooked.

The Tastiest Tour in Town

Friday was a very fun day at Mrs. Fields Gifts. We invited a group of local bloggers to come and get a taste of the Mrs. Fields experience at our Salt Lake City baking and gifting facility.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and then took them on a tour of our 158,000 square foot bakery and gifting facility. Most people only think of Mrs. Fields as a store in the mall, but we have so much more to offer to those who love our decadent cookies and brownies.

We bake, package, and ship thousands of gourmet cookie and brownie gifts each day from this facility. Everything is done in-house to ensure freshness. Cassie led an incredible, 30-minute tour, showing off our behind-the-scenes baking braun! Take a look (no hairnet required).

A big thank you to the bloggers in attendance:

Vanessa from I Never Grew Up
Amy from 52 Fun Saturdays
Allison from Petit Elefant
Jen from Tatertots & Jello
Susan from Freshly Picked
Kami from No Biggie
Rachel from Today’s Mama
Hannah from Sherbet Blossom
Marie from Make and Takes
Melissa from I Still Love You
Tiffany from The Would-Be Writers Guild

If you’re ever visiting Salt Lake City, it’s worth your time to come and tour our amazing factory and gifting facility. It’s perfect for young and old alike, and we can accommodate groups of any size.  Schedule a tour here.

A Sweet Story

It started with a caring teacher, Ms. Parker, who always refers to the students in her class as “smart cookies.” For Teacher Appreciation Week, each class decorated a door for their teacher. Ms. Parker’s class had no trouble at all coming up with an idea for their door.

That’s Aly Starbuck there. She’s one of the smart cookies.

Let’s zoom in for the close up, shall we?

So adorable!

We caught wind of this story and it thrilled us because we love teachers. And we love smart little creative cookies who do nice things for their teachers. So, we decided to surprise all of them with some gourmet goodies. Rumor has it that it took three students to carry this basket of cookies and brownies down the hall to the classroom.

But wait, the story gets sweeter. Much to our delight, we got our own surprise a few days later–hand-written cards and pictures from Ms. Parker’s class, thanking us for the surprise. It brightened the entire office!

Kindness begets kindness begets kindness begets kindness. It’s quite simple, isn’t it?

A big Thank You to Ms. Parker and her entire first grade class of smart cookies at Viewmont Elementary School! Keep up the good work.
