The story of Ana Francisca, who begins the soap opera as a young and poor teenager, unpopular at school in a small fictious city where everybody knows everything about everyone. Later, she gets married with the owner of the city's chocolate factory (the major company in the city) and turns herself into a very rich woman, and she also is a very good person, later, her husband dies. The rest of the story happens between the population of the city of Ventura, where a group of 4 people try to take Ana Francisca out of the factory command and try to make all kinds of plans to take it off from her, with no success. Ana Francisca also has passion for one person, Danilo, who also loves her, but their love is repressed in sad feelings about each other's past. Written by

Chocolate moves around with people's feelings, make we love, make that we have will to walk slowly, will to make our heart smile. The pepper has a soft but deep smell that moves with people's feelings. That's why the bonbon must have a soft touch of pepper, because it makes the person have will to have fun, to go to parties, to laugh with our friends.

A very short time after 'A Padroeira', the excellent author Walcyr Carrasco delights us with his new and tasty (yeah, the word is that, tasty!) work. Now, day by day, at six o'clock, we Brazilians sit on the sofa and spend moments of pure joy and comedy. And that time, Walcyr Carrasco presents us a plot which seems to be the opposite of the most soap opera plots: the villains in the soap 'conspire' to join the passionate couple, instead of separating them. This is the very new of that story. Mariana Ximenes never acted in a role so serious and adult like this is. She's perfect! And not only Mariana Ximenes, but the whole cast of theater superstars is marvelous, wonderful, perfect, SUPERB!
