I barely have time to go shopping, and anyway, it’s my wife who is in charge of that. But for some products as the wine, I’m very strict about the quality and where it comes from.
It was a friend that has told me about Delices and Gourmandises, a website that sells candies, pastries and good quality wine. I was immediately seduced by the wide range of wine offered by this on line boutique. I went on passing orders until I won this LCD TV that costs 1099 euros. Since it is home, the whole family shares good times watching movies every Sunday.

I love candies; I always did, since my childhood. It is almost an addiction. I share this passion with my grand-children and it is them, more precisely our children, that told me about Delices and Gourmandises.

When I told my family that I was about to win a LCD TV that cost 1099 euros, they could not believe it. Now, we spend most of our week-end in front of the TV with some pastries, delicacies and wine.

Marie-Rose, another winner of Delices and Gourmandises

I do not know much about technology. Buying on line is not really my cup of tea as I prefer going in the supermarket instead of staying home with a computer. But my husband told me about an online boutique that offers great gifts to its best clients during a sweepstake, it Delices and Gourmandises.
As I was a kind of gamer, I decided to try and ordered some cakes and candies for try. I continued ordering because I was really fond of the delicacies sold on the site. And my greed was awarded by a LCD TV! Just what I needed as I thought about replacing our old TV post.

A surprise beyond my wildest dreams from Delices and Gourmandises

To thanks its top customers, Delices and Gourmandises regularly organizes a draw with some nice surprise gifts. I of course heard about it, but since I usually am not very lucky at that kind of things, I never participated.

Maurice Queron could afford the interior design that his family dreamt of thanks to Delices and Gourmandises


My wife and I are passionate about sweets and confectioneries. It seems that our children have inherited some of that passion. I was looking for a site offering the biggest selection when I came across Delices and Gourmandises. I was seduced by its home delivery service, it suited me more. So, I sent my first order and we really enjoyed its products. Since then, we regularly buy our treats on Delices and Gourmandises.

Delicious treats for everybody


Fruits pastes
I remember, for my first order, I asked for its crunchy rock (my wife’s favorite), fruit pastes for my oldest daughter and cherry lollipops and chlorophyll for the two smallest. They loved it. Since then, every time that I am going to place a new order, the whole family meets and everyone select whatever pleases him in Delices and Gourmandises catalog. And in prevision of impromptu visits of the children’s cousins, we always order a bit more for stuff.

Also, we noted the large selection of pastries proposed by Delices and Gourmandises, then we have decided to allow us some differences for breakfasts one weekend out of two. Our kids love its millefeuille with cream and my wife became addicted to small rolls cakes. As for me, I have a weakness for its waffles and biscuits with lemon.

I gave my wife and kids the room design of their dreams


When I decided, unbeknownst to my family, to participate in the sweepstake proposed by Delices and Gourmandises, I did not really think that I would win anything. But when I received the letter that told me that I'd won the tidy sum of 9500 euros, I did not hesitate for a moment on what I would do with this money. I sent my wife and children on vacation for 10 days with my parents in the countryside and I started to revamp the home decor so that each member of the family got the room design of his dream. For my part, I built myself a little corner bar in the living room. I would like to thank Delices and Gourmandises team for this fabulous gift.
