About Alicja Confections + The Team
Alicja Confections started in Winnipeg, MB. as a hobby. We’ve since moved to Ottawa, ON. and things have blown up!
We offer something DIFFERENT than the norm.
Alicja Confections uses classic techniques of chocolate making, but doesn’t leave it there. Every chocolate is a new, weird, interesting, funky, delicious flavour you can’t normally find anywhere else.
Postcard Chocolate Bar:
Alicja Confections best-selling item is the Postcard Chocolate Bar – a chocolate bar you can send in the mail! Each bar is wrapped in beautifully designed packaging and comes in dozens of funky flavours. Just take it to any Canada Post outlet and ship it off! It makes such a sweet “thinkin’ of you, boo” gift.
Chocolate: white, milk, dark, and single origin. Every piece of chocolate you'll eat from us has been hand tempered with love and a lot of muscle!
As a kid, I never liked chocolate. People find it funny, but it’s true! There were only a few select flavours I liked and no one accessible to me was making them – so I made them myself! After leaving a job working at a chocolate store to work in an office, I was seriously bored. Alicja Confections started from a need for a creative outlet. Everything from the packaging, flavours, marketing, and branding are things that I love to do! With all my favourite hobbies combined, some hard work, and a lot of help from loved ones (thanks fam!), Alicja Confections has become my full-time job and the best one yet!
My personal favourite bar: Strawberry Blonde!
As a kid, I especially liked chocolate. Little did “Childhood Nick” know, this sweet treat would become one of the largest influences in his life. I don’t think you can blame him for not seeing it, though . . . Aerospace Engineering degree, Royal Canadian Air Force Engineering Officer, law student, chocolate store owner? One of those things is definitely not like the other. Oddly enough, I couldn’t imagine it any other way. Alicja Confections blends my passions for problem solving, creative thinking, and eating chocolate, and I am grateful to pursue these passions every day, with the person I love.
My personal favourite bar: The Nicholas Bar (duh)
