Alicja Confections — Home of the Postcard Chocolate Bar & The Confection Club
Hi! I'm Alicja, and I'm the owner, creator, chocolate magician, and just about everything else of Alicja Confections!
AC started as a hobby after leaving my job at a chocolate shop - and getting a "big girl job. My first product was chocolate bonbons one Christmas, in Winnipeg, MB. Boy, did I under estimate the demand for funky, cool looking chocolates in Winnipeg! In the first month of sales, we sold over 250 boxes of chocolates locally and online.
Since then, Alicja Confections has evolved. I wanted to make a product that was fun, versatile, colourful, and delicious. We first started packaging our chocolate bars in individual paper boxes we would print out - one by one. Boy, that was a headache. I was consumed with finding a way to package the chocolate bars in something that was full colour - I didn't want to compromise the designs I love so much. So I got the idea of putting the bars in envelopes. The front has the product info, and the back has a space for a message, address, stamps, and boom! The Postcard Chocolate Bar was born!
After a few short months, I've now moved to Ottawa, ON. My fiancé, Nick, is going to law school here, and I'm working on Alicja Confections full time. That means every time you purchase something from us, you're supporting a real local business with one employee that does everything. Okay, maybe two - but Nick only gets paid in kisses!
