NICK & ALICJA
Nicholas - Numbers Man, Taste Tester
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, lawyer, chocolate store owner? One of those things is definitely not like the other. Oddly enough, I couldn’t imagine it any other way.
Alicja - Founder, Head Chocolatier
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 I love to do.
