Update

Hey everyone!
We are getting things smoothed out on our end and we should be up and running within a decent time frame. We had a tragic incident with the bank involving them eating our money and we have been trying to recover. We had just spiced up our blog too!
In good news operation "strawberry lemonade" and "cherry lemonade" cake balls went swimmingly. Everyone seemed to really enjoy them which means that when we are up and running again expect to see them in our shop.
Other good news?
We actually got written about in a blog! Hip Hip Horray! Lol, not even functional and we are still making an impact online. In other news you guys can still donate or suggest recipes to us at:

Later Blue Birds :)

Back To Tell You .. We'll Be Back Later

So, if you haven't noticed, we haven't been updating much and our shop is on vacation.

If only it was a real vacation .. in Europe or some close-to-the-equator beach. But, alas, the last couple weeks, we've had to do some damage control and we finally pinpointed our main problems. So we decided to close down shop to solidify our recipes/ingredients and then work on shipping to make sure everything arrives how it was shipped.

Some of you may be getting surprise treats in the main all for the price of .. being honest with us on how it shipped and how it tastes. :) If that was me, that would be a pretty awesome day.

While we're taking a break, we will also be working on some new summer recipes including:

Lemonade Float cake balls

and

something to do with raspberries. We haven't figure it out yet, but if you have any ideas, go ahead and shoot them over our way either in a comment or to blusparrowtreats@yahoo.com.

If you are really for jonesing for something specific, send us an etsy convo with what you want and we'll either open up long enough for you to buy your product real fast or just go directly through paypal and ship it out to you.

Thanks!

Waking Up

Hello!
We have been super busy on the Blu Sparrow side of things. We actually made enough money to go to the eco-craftacular fair but sadly enough we got into issues with chase bank last week that have hindered us from being able to enter at this time. Always next year right?
With that being said our $2.00 sale is still going on. Which is always a plus and helps us while getting everyone the sweets the need and love.

Also going on this week our mystery box is back! I bet many are wondering whats going to be in it this week. So far we have done "Carrot Cake Balls" and "On The Rocks". What could happen next?

We have a new goal for this month also for you guys to keep in mind when you buy which would be a food processor. We figure it sounds awesome and makes cool sounds.

Our playlist for the week will be delayed until later on this week while we try to get everything sorted out with Chase. Be safe!

Pee Wee's Back and So Are We!

You guys guessed it! Our Mystery Box is back and good Old Pee Wee Herman is at the helm running the show just as he was last week!

hidden

He actually got some double time action because the first one of the week sold out in ONE HOUR!Since we didnt even have a chance to catch our breath we put him back up which means what is in him is still going to be a secret until after the second purchase of the box!!!!!

What else do we have in store???? Amazingness(yes this isnt a word) like you wont believe! We have our newest sweet coming at you today also. Its a layer of chocolate followed by a layer of cherry chocolate almond fudge, and then topped with another layer of chocolate!!!!
The name voted on and best suggested by Faeriedtreasures was:
The Ex-Boyfriend! Her exact quote was "It's nutty, and flaky, and it has your cherry!"
Gotta love something like that!
theexboyfriend
This is an amazing chunk of chocolate that you get. Its about 3 inches wide, 3 inches long, and 1cm under an inch deep. Which makes this insane to contain in one bite or even 9.
