Q chocolate is produced by Brazilian chef Samantha Aquim with no artificial flavouring or essence; her Q bars contain only cocoa mass, cocoa butter and a small amount of sugar.

With no artificial flavouring or essence, her Q bars contain only cocoa mass, cocoa butter and a small amount of sugar. The chocolate is available in six levels of cocoa mass, with the range being divided into “suaves” (soft – 55%, 60% and 65%) and “intensos” (intense – 75%, 80% and 85%). Its vibrant visual identity received a Bronze Lion award at Cannes Design Festival last year.
