Everyone who knows me knows how much I love chocolate. If I was stranded on a desert island and the only food I had to eat was chocolate, then I’d never want to leave! Seriously though, I’m pretty picky when it comes to chocolate – I don’t like the conventional chocolates that you can find in every store. I prefer gourmet chocolates and chocolates that tastes rich and luscious. And I’m not shameful to admit that I’m pretty much a chocolate snob. So when I discovered Q.bel chocolate wafers at my friend’s natural grocery store one day, I knew I had to give it a try. When I took a bite of the crunchy, sweet, and oh-so-delicious and chocolaty wafer cookie, I was instantly smitten. I have never tasted a chocolate wafer as delicious as the ones made by Q.bel. There’s just something unique about their wafers. And then I realized what it was – they use only all-natural ingredients and that’s when you can tell the difference between a conveyor built-made chocolate wafer to one that is made in smaller batches and with more care and love. You can taste the natural flavors of Q.bel chocolate snacks because they use only real chocolate among other natural ingredients and absolutely no preservatives. But they are so yummy that they wouldn’t stay very long in your pantry anyways. Or at least not in my house. And although I’ve hidden a secret stash of them in my house, somehow my husband still found them and dug into them without asking me! In our house, my son and I are big Q.bel chocolate wafer fans and my husband jumped on board when he discovered how great tasting they were!
Q.bel is a fairly small company who started several years ago after the founder of the company realized that all-natural food doesn’t necessarily mean “all-natural”. So he set out to produce his own high-quality, no-junk chocolate wafer rolls and bars and named half of the company’s moniker after his wife, Isabel. The Q stands for Quality and Q.bel’s chocolate wafers and rolls aren’t short in the quality department. This is one company who made chocolate wafers and bars right, in my opinion. What makes Q.bel chocolate wafer rolls and bars a step above all other wafers and bars is something I haven’t found anywhere else. Their wafer rolls are drenched in sweet and delightful chocolate on the outside and in the center, there is an intense amount of chocolate filling. You essentially taste chocolate in every bite and they’re moist and has just the right amount of crunch. My favorite is the Deep Dark Chocolate Wafer Rolls made with 72% cacao and my son loves the Deep Dark Chocolate Wafer Rolls and the Milk Chocolate Wafer Rolls.
Q.bel also makes chocolate wafer bars which we equally enjoy eating and they are definitely not your everyday supermarket wafer bars. They’re sweet but not overly sweet, they’re immensely light in texture and the chocolately cream filling is so rich and smooth that you’ll want to lick the wafer clean. And their chocolate wafer bars are made with Belgian chocolates for that extra distinctive chocolate flavor.
Q.bel’s current line up of flavors and varieties includes Dark Chocolate Wafer Rolls with 52% cacao, Milk Chocolate Wafer Rolls with 36% cacao, Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Wafer Rolls, and Deep Dark Chocolate Wafer Rolls with 72% cacao. In their chocolate wafer bars the flavors are Double Dark Chocolate Wafer Bars with 70% cacao, Milk Chocolate Wafer Bars with 36% cacao (this one also contains crispy rice as an additional ingredient), Mint Wafer Bars with Dark Chocolate with 55% cacao (this one’s incredibly refreshing tasting), Dark Chocolate Wafer Bars with 55% cacao, and Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Wafer Bars. Since they are still a fairly new and small company, they hope to expand with more products in the future. And as they are trying to practice environmentally-responsible ways in manufacturing and packaging their products, they do admit that they are still growing in that area.
