Ginette : Delices and Gourmandises rewarded me with a smartphone

Retired since few years, I currently live in Barfleur, one of the most beautiful villages in France. I am leading a peaceful life in this small fishing village, and I spend my days to maintain my house and my garden. Since I live alone, I enjoy my relaxing moments by going for a walk with some friends to the seaside. One of them is used to offer us biscuits and pastries during these outings and I must say that these products’ authentic flavors have conquered me. She told us that she orders all these delicacies on Delices and Gourmandises’ website.
I also became a regular customer of this store and after several orders; I was invited to participate in one of its sweepstakes. And then, surprise, I won a smartphone. I want to thank all the Delices and Gourmandises’ team for this wonderful gift. Now, I can communicate easily with my kids at the other end of the country
