Back in 2011, Kate and Jane, our chocolate alchemists were dreamily fantasising about their ideal snack – a guilt-free, TASTY healthy chocolate bar. A chocolate that instead of guzzling in secret and stashing the wrapper, one would proudly show and share.
Never shy of a challenge, they were soon deeply engrossed in developing a truly unique Bean-To-Bar SuperFood chocolate; scouring the most remote corners of the planet to find the healthiest and tastiest raw ingredients, finally discovering in the fertile lands of Peru the rare and intoxicating PURE Criollo bean.
Many long days and nights followed perfecting the recipe. The bean was incredible – but it needed sweetened without impurities, with an infusion of nature…..so they added coconut blossom nectar. Yumm.
Then they played around with some natural, organic and frankly intoxicating flavours. 6 months later – eureka! They had cracked it- a sensationally delicious chocolate range, handmade from Bean-To-Bar retaining the raw SuperFood nutrients and antioxidants, containing less than 199 calories, with a taste, texture and snap that would delight chocolate-boffins and the health-conscious alike. Brilliant!
The bar achieved organic certification and was introduced at a variety of health-food and artisan eateries. It was a winner! iQ chocolate started to be talked about and craved. It even won some industry awards before its official launch.
Following on from the success of the Original iQ bar, the chocolate alchemy started on developing other equally healthy and delicious flavours as well as a chocolate just for chefs which was featured on BBC’s Great British Menu and was proudly served to dignitaries at the 2012 Olympics.
The super-smart scientific team at the Rowett Institute have been busy bees helping us with the validation of our healthy benefits – a major success – making iQ a food, not a candy. Guilt-free – Not guilty.
August 2014 sees us launch our new BeautiQ and YogiQ bars, each with a special boost of goodness designed to make you feel good. Check them out, we hope you’ll love them xx
