About our chocolate

Yes! Alicja Confections sources chocolate from the best chocolate maker, Cacao Barry. Cacao Barry is certified sustainable under the Cocoa Horizon program. We are committed to empowering cacao farmers to improve their incomes, and stay active in supporting industry programs that aim at eradicating abusive child labor, keeping ecological sustainability in mind.

Our bars, discs, and dragées are best eaten within 1 year of purchase. Store in a cool, dry place. Some people like to eat cold or frozen chocolate, but we recommend they be enjoyed at room temperature for best flavour. 

Our bonbons are made fresh and are best eaten within 10 days of purchase if stored at room temperature, or within one month if stored in the fridge. They are best enjoyed at room temperature, especially after a delicious meal.

All Alicja Confections products are made in our kitchen in Ottawa. In our facility, we make items that contain nuts, soy, dairy, gluten, and other allergens. We take extreme care to make our products that are dairy-free friendly and/or gluten-free friendly separately from others, but cross contamination is still possible. Please refrain from consuming our products if you have any severe food allergies including nuts, dairy, and gluten.
