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.

My guilty pleasure has always been and will probably always be sweets. Eating these little treats is also a pleasure that I share with my grandchildren. I found what I needed on Delices and Gourmandises website and I even got rewarded.

Treats to please all palates

A few years earlier, after a medical visit, to my dismay, I had to avoid eating sweets to get well. But what was my delight to hear that I could eat again! However, the doctor insisted on the reasonable quantity and especially the quality of the products I’d buy.
Determined to find the balance between my health and my desires, I started searching healthy treats. And by chance, a neighbor told me about Delices and Gourmandises website. Curious, I visited it and totally fell under the spell of sweets, chocolates, fruit jellies and small fragrant cakes...

Quality and reliable online services

Skeptical, I was not immediately conquered by this mail-order selling, considering the numerous cases of fraud and scam on the internet. Then I tried, I must say it was hard to resist the delights offer. So I ordered and I paid the bill by credit card. Within two days only, my assortment arrived in my mailbox, as pretty as if I just came out from the display of a confectionery shop, neither dented nor melted.

A surprise beyond my wildest dreams

Since I’ve been a regular customer of Delices and Gourmandises online store for years, I already heard about the surprise gifts that the site offers, but I was far from imagining that I would ever be one of the winners!
So when I received a letter telling me that as a reward my loyalty, I won the Grand Prix, i.e. the sum of € 9,500, it’s an understatement to say that I was overjoyed. So I decided to take my grandchildren for a weeklong holiday in Tunis.

Thanks to Délices et Gourmandises, Suzanne Ehret could take her grandchildren to see the fjords, she tells us her story

I have four grandchildren. I like sharing with them my passion for sweets even if my children disapprove. As we could not help eating sweets and pastries, they requested me to find healthy products. One day, I discovered Delices and Gourmandises. All its delicacies are made with fresh and good ingredients. We can consume them without worry, and I received a gift as a reward for my guilty pleasure.

Healthy treats for everyone

As far as I can remember, I have always been fond of sweets and pastries. You can’t imagine my sadness when some years ago, my doctor told me to follow a strict diet and to forget eating sweets. Later, after a medical control, I was allowed to eat them again, but in moderation and only if the products are fresh and healthy.
So, I started to search a provider that can meet my requirements. I was told about Delices and Gourmandises and its amazing assortment of delicacies by a friend. I did not wait long to visit the webstore and to find out what it provides.

A high-quality service

I hesitated sometime before sending my first order. I’ve heard so many stories about scams and online
shopping. But I could not resist, and I don’t regret my trial. I remember, I ordered some candies, and paid by credit card. My parcel was quickly delivered. I got it within two days, perfectly packaged, and in an excellent shape.
Since then, every time that my grandchildren come to visit me, I order some delicacies on Delices and Gourmandises store. We have tried already so much chocolates, fruit jellies and small cakes, etc., and there are still plenty of pastries and sweets to taste. In short, I can find there everything I need for the little ones and myself.

A great gift

In addition, I got the luck to be the winner of the best customers’ lottery organized regularly by Delices and Gourmandises. I could not believe the letter informing me that I won a gift of € 9,500 until I got the call from the webstore telling me to come at their office to receive my check.  
With this reward, I took my grandchildren on holiday in Denmark and we visited its fjords, a place that fascinated us. They are still amused when I tell them how I got the money to offer them this trip!
