They’re back…

Valentine's Day Champagne Wish

The Champagne Wishes Valentine’s Day sale is now on! This special offering will be available from February 1 – 10, 2006, with guaranteed delivery on or before Valentine’s Day. This is a big step forward for Amai, and we have worked hard to improve our offering. We now have an official logo and custom packaging (thanks to our talented designer, Trina Elstner) and have made several strides forward in streamlining baking, packaging and shipping. Brownies are now prepared in individual pans to guarantee consistent sizing (and avoid hours of cutting), and heat sealed in its own wrapper immediately after baking to preserve freshness. For Valentine’s day we have also topped each brownie with a little red heart to show our love for you (and the brownie, of course).

As always, we welcome your feedback. Let us know what you think or if we can help create the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for you or someone you love. Thank you and have a lovely holiday.

February 1-10 (noon EST), 2006

Hi Everyone — Thank you for alerting me of this! I have been trying it myself and it seems to be working, and we’ve had orders come through so it may have been a temporary problem. I will keep investigating to make sure it is working 100% of the time. In the meantime, if you have any trouble and would like to place an order please contact me at kelli@amainyc.com.

Update: I just got a Mac and that seems to have been the cause of the problem. My basic coding skills didn’t work on the PC, but now it should be fixed. Thank you for your patience! Please let me know if you have any difficulty.

I just got my brownies and they are almost too cute for words!! You really should have a picture of your packaging. Now I wish I bought three times as many to give out as Valentines! The fortunes are so funny too. My two favorites:
- Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
-Love means never having to share your brownie!!

great job Kelli

I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Packaging is a big deal to us and it’s so fun to come up with different colors and patterns to use. We’re also on the hunt for interesting sayings, so I’m glad you liked the ones we picked. Do you have any other favorites?

Thanks for your order. I hope you had a great Valentine’s!

In one word, “Wow!” The brownies are fantastic. I gave them to some of my co-workers as a day-after-Valentine’s treat- and they all loved them. I think the packaging helped with keeping the moisture just right after a tran-continental journey. The packaging is simply beautiful – even down to the nutrition info on the bottom…and yes, I peeked :) . Congratulations on a job well done….

[...] My recent delivery of Lovescool’s Valentine’s Day Champagne Brownies gave me the inspiration to make little bite sized brownies. Her chocolate delivery was so charming and tasty and bite sized. A week after finishing them off, I’m still thinking of them and realizing that they addressed a fundamental rule that I have forgotten to apply to brownies- small is cuter! [...]
