Located in Ottawa, ON, Alicja Confections offers a funky, memorable and delicious twist to chocolate bars.

The brand signature Postcard Card Chocolate Bar has become Alicja Confections best-selling item with each bar wrapped in beautifully designed packaging. Now available in a dozen funky flavours such as; Gone Fishing, Lime Zest, Unicorn and Whatever!

Where did the inspiration for your business stem from?

I was inspired to start Alicja Confections from a need to work with my hands and be creative. Working in an office meant the years I put into art and design sat on a shelf, and I quickly felt the need to use my passions.

What is the best part of what you do and why?

Being able to be a part of the Ottawa community, while letting my creativity flow is the best part of Alicja Confections. The support of the community is so amazing, it’s almost hard to believe so many people love chocolate this much!

What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?

Research everything. Every component about your business. Everyone can learn new things about their business, and research is a great way to keep current and answer some burning questions in your mind. It may sound silly, but it’s helped me more times than I can count.

Why is community important to you?

Without community, we wouldn’t exist. Because of the support of the local Ottawa maker community, we opened a shop, and because of the support of the community we’re in now (shout out Glebe!) we are able to make crazy, interesting, new, and fun things every day.
