I just love your chocolate.It's quite clearly a very healthy and superior chocolate bar however it would be great if you could do some free shipping coupons from time to time so those of us who can't really afford it on a regular basis can afford to buy more. i wish it was in a store near me but so far I don't see any.

Hi Vanessa
You are one clever girl! I was put onto you through IIN as I have just signed up for the course. I am really inspired by your story, tips and using your intuition....and I haven't even tasted your chocolate! I wonder if I could get it here to Australia..!?
You are definitely one step on my path :)

Just ordered your Passion Collection Truffles... Can't wait to try these been waiting all year for these to come!

February 1, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMabel

Amazing chocolates! I was pleasantly surprised and placed my second order. Filled with Antioxidants and simply the best. It is worth the splurge!

January 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterWENDY

I just received my most recent order of seasonal truffles (by the way the No Trick Treat from my last order may have been the BEST thing EVER!) & Gingerbread bar. It made my day! Today has been super lousy - mostly because of the terrible weather, but I'm feeling less grumpy now. Anyway - I just wanted to thank you for your awesome products.

I've learned about goodness of mineral in cacao and found your chocolate bar at my favorite store. It was on sale today, till tomorrow it says, so I bought one and.. I already finished it.. but wow, I'm feeling much better than usual. My skin on face feels so smooth. I am somebody on detox diet for long. I eat only natural foods for years and recently I calculated and know I am short on saturated fat and linolic acid. That's why your coconut sweetened chocolate is especially beneficial to me. Thank you for making such a great food available for me.

The Enwhitened bar is one of the best things I've ever tasted! I have to ration my husband or he would eat the whole bar in one sitting. I'm not a big white chocolate fan, but this is so much better than white chocolate, with the addition of cashew. I would eat Enwhitened over dark chocolate, and that's saying something! I love the concept of raw, but until I tried your chocolate, I didn't realize it would affect taste so much. Your chocolate certainly tastes like chocolate, but is different, in a very pleasant, not overly processed way. Love the chocolate mint. Look forward to trying the other flavors. Love your "born in a NY loft" story.

While watching a YouTube video, the speaker started raving about the BEST chocolate ever. Well, I had to listen up and he went on saying Gnosis is so excellent. That was about five years ago and it really is the best!

March 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMaria

I am a big fan of your chocolate, both because of its full, dark taste, and because it is one of the few chocolates that does not send my system out of whack. I have gluten intolerance and a severe soy allergy, as well as a long lineage of diabetes in the family, which makes me extremely sensitive to sugar (reactive hypoglycemia).

Thank you for your wonderful work!

March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterN

Kudos to the Gnosis team! Thank you for giving us excellent products which are nourishing and delicious. The chocolate you create is sui generis! We recently adopted a more health-conscious lifestyle, which launched us on a quest for the best RAW chocolate ever! We’ve tried quite a few raw chocolate products, but only Gnosis was the “perfect fit”. From the cacao flavor profile (we prefer dark, bold cacao beans - as opposed to fruity or acidic or floral beans); to the inclusion of such ingredients as hemp, cayenne and chili peppers, and pink Himalayan salt which all contribute to nutritional value; to the use of raw, low-glycemic sweeteners; we cannot ask for more. And as though your products were not good enough to sell themselves, the Gnosis team raises the customer service benchmark to levels unknown!! During each of our interactions with you, whether via phone or email, your passion for what you do is always evident. And this shines through in each of your product offerings. We wish you continued success in your endeavours.

P.S. We currently live in NY, but we so look forward to retirement in the Philippines. Our one fear is that we will not be able to have our regular Gnosis chocolate fixes when we go back home, upon retirement… Uh-oh!... Maybe you can ship to our neck of the woods? =)

The truffles in the Passion Collection are amazing. I will be ordering them again! Soon!

February 21, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLJ

The best chocolate on the market--no sugar or fillers. And I've tested MANY.
I've ordered a stash.

I got some high quality chocolate imported from Belgium. It's good. But then I ate a Madagascar bar. Sorry, but yours is SO much better! I still can't find it locally, but hope that will change.

Hi! Just wanted to say that I tried your chocolate for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. I had the SuperChoc and it was totally delicious!! I am doing a cleanse/detox and your chocolate was the perfect thing to keep me going and satisfy my chocolate cravings. Keep up the great work! P.S. I also really like the packaging

January 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJ

I've always said that the 2 sweetest sensations in life are derived from chocolate and women ...and then comes Chocolate Girl! I was first introduced to Gnosis chocolates earlier this year and am hooked. Your service is as excellent as the chocolates themselves. Keep brewing and keep us smiling.

Very nice :)

I heard about Gnosis chocolates via a radio interview. I was intrigued and ordered a bunch, really just by faith! I felt a connection with Jennifer and wanted to try them. I have not been disappointed. I brought them to work and shared with coworkers whom are also concerned about healthy eating. I was so pleased to be able to share them with a coworker with gluten intolerance. That was really a blessing. They are my special treat and I will be ordering more in the future. Right now, they are my "to be savored" treat, because they are so special. Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I will count you among my things I am thankful for. Thank you for the healthy chocolate and for your eco friendly practices. You are an inspiration. Happy Thanksgiving!

First off, Gnosis chocolate is delicious. When I discovered them last year at the show, I spent half a day's wages on bars for holiday stocking stuffers. I buy them two bars at a time and inevitably end up giving one away within hours because I want people to share the joy of eating them. More chocolate, please.

Hi guys, I am a student of Integrative Nutrition, too. I had the pleasure of tasting your chocolate just last week at the IIN conference at the Jazz at Lincoln Center. I was blown away by the purity and taste of the ingredients. I don't think I will eat any other kind of chocolate after tasting yours! Eating your chocolate brought me in touch emotionally with far away cultures and ancient times. I feel healed with every morsel. I will happily tell people and businesses about your wonderful line of products! Thank you for what you do. You are very inspiring!!

October 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Hi Vanessa! I received the order and love it all. Thank you very much. You look like you are doing an excellent job! Very inspiring!

Ordered chocolate for me and my mother to try. She was out of town for the week and I ate it all. Oops! I guess I'll have to order more before she gets back.

Don't judge.

I had been making my "specialty" for a while with some 2-year old raw Gnosis cocoa that I had stretched as long as I could. The drink includes blended frozen banana, almond milk, peanut butter, cinnamon, honey, ice, and of course, cocoa. Upon receiving my brand new raw Gnosis cocoa yesterday, I promptly made the drink without realizing that three heaping tablespoons of (fresh) cocoa for two people was a LOT! It was absolutely delicious, but my husband and I literally had to lie down, both of our hearts racing. We'd never experienced a chocolate overdose before! I think it only made our addiction stronger. We had chocolate cake today...

Thanks for being our "dealer"!

August 24, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercarrie

How many different ways can I say, "delicious". A must try for cashew lovers; chocolate lovers. Healthy ingredients. Guilt free chocolate. Thank you!

the first bar i have tried from you guys was the immunity bar. i have not eaten any chocolate for over 16 years because of horrifically sick (i mean near hospital worthy) conventional cooked chocolate made me when i was younger. i have literally every allergy, am extremely sensitive so organic food is an absolute must, predominantly vegan diet (i can only tolerate occasional wild salmon) and finding food of intense quality is very difficult for me. i began having a series of dreams about my body suddenly needing chocolate desperately (which confused me greatly) and i went to whole foods looking around for something that could possibly work for this sudden need my body had, i never ignore these needs. i found the immunity bar, and after reading everything on it several times and upon trying it i nearly cried. this was quite possibly the best thing i have eaten in a long long time and with how health conscious i am, and how stringent i need to be about my allergies and digestive issues, eating this and NOT being sick was downright incredible. i've now eaten a few immunity bars in the last 2 weeks and have had dramatic health improvements in such a short time period. the combinations you are doing in these bars is somehow working a miracle in my body in every conceivable way. i've actually had people stopping me asking me what have i been eating because i look so much better, like my musculature has improved and my skin and the list goes on and on.

from the bottom of my heart thank you all for making something like this, you have no idea what it means to me to eat something of this quality and not have allergens of mine in it and BENEFIT the way i have been from it. not to mention it was unearthly delicious, which was a gift in of itself. i don't know if its the love or what, but you also gave me back the ability to eat tree nuts which for years i was NEVER able to do without being sick afterwards.

thank you for sharing your true gift, please don't stop. <3

I purchashed one of your chocolate bars last week at Brad Raw Foods open house. As a dark chocolate lover, health fanatic and IIN graduate last month, I just had to let you know that this is the best chocolate I have ever purchased. When I first looked up Gnosis chocolate last September, yes after the IIN conference, I thought the chocolate was rather expensive. However, after tasting your chocolate which I am still rationing today, I have to tell you it is worth every penny. I also love your commitment to the environment and preserving our remaining resources. It is not very often you come across a company with integrity that you can feel comfortable supporting. Good luck and I will be purchasing more of your delicious chocolate soon.

I am a chocoholic, oh yes I am, but how to keep this habit a healthy one? Enter Gnosis
Chocolate—vegan, gluten-free, raw, AND low-glycemic! Even with all this, they
taste delectable! Now these chocolates are sweetened with agave, so I was
delighted to learn they are offering a “sweet choice” of coconut sugar in lieu
of agave: basically the same flavor with two options for sweetener: agave or
coconut sugar. In the name of science—and my excited tastebuds—I decided to
take the challenge of trying BOTH sweet choices! Oh be still, my heart! The
flavors I tried were Gratitude (vanilla hazelnut), Mayan Heat (chili) and Rejuvenate
(pomegranate-acai). I liked the original agave for these, so I wanted to see
how the new kid, coconut, would compare.

The first I tried was the Mayan Heat.
I excitedly tear open the wrapper to get to the chocolate. Xocolat: food for
the gods; with the chili, berries and nuts, it is indeed ambrosia. I break off
a square, touch it, sniff it, eye it, and only then do I pop it into my mouth
to let its flavors roll into my tongue. Chocolate is indeed a multi-sensory
celebration of the senses.

I start with the new coconut sugar option, as
indicated not only by the ingredient list but by the little green coconut trees
on the package. The chocolate snaps crisp, it smells like chili and burnt sugar
and dark velvet night. I pop one in, and the flavors come in real subtly, all
robed in the dark crystal sweetness of the coconut sugar. The chili comes as a
slow burn throughout, punctuated first by the black currants, then the soft
pecans. I would pair this with a dark roast coffee, or a full-bodied red wine.

I then try the agave. Like an old flame, it
still invites me. The chocolate breaks with a sigh, a bit more of a give. It
smells of ritual and dark treacle and tart berries. I taste it, and the flavors
come languidly in but all at once, like a fiery fudge. I taste the pecans, then
the black currants, with the chili enrobing it all. For the agave, I would go
for a medium roast coffee, and a sweet port.

The Mayan Heat is my favorite; however chocolate
is still queen of my heart, and she has other flavors besides. I next try the
Pomegranate-Acai in coconut sugar. Sure enough, it snaps clean. I taste more
tartness, with the sweet burnt sugar somehow reminiscent of the sugarcane
fields I visited in my youth in the Philippines, the tassels waving the summer
breeze. I would love this with maybe a Muscat.

I then try the agave version of the
Pomegranate-Acai. The agave gives its softer texture, more treacly sweetness. I
taste the acai here, but sweeter. I would maybe try a nice prosecco or
champagne with this: bubbles with berries!

Then for a more classic flavor, I try the
Vanilla Hazelnut. As always, I try the new kid on the block first, coconut
sugar. I’m loving that crisp break now as I snap off a square from its partner
inside. The coconut sugar Vanilla Hazelnut is darker, more subtle, and I taste
the hazelnuts prominently. This would be pretty good with a cup of chicory coffee.

However, to compare, I try the agave version,
and this…this reminds me of Ferrero Rocher, a childhood favorite, but now SO
much better, and without dairy, or transfats, or rancid oils, and so much
FRESHER! The agave just brings it all together somehow: the hazelnut, vanilla,
raw chocolate all melt in my mouth with the agave tasting like delicious
almost-can’t-believe-it’s-good-for-me syrup. SO, so good. This would be great with a port....while soaking in a bubble bath. Ah, bliss.

Yes, I love chocolate, and I will be the first
to spout off the improbability of me allergic to it, and instead point to how
healthy it can be! And I am glad I am not the only chocoholic health nut out
there: thank you, Gnosis for fresh, healthy chocolate manna.

May 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTherese

I had occasion to try five of your flavors of chocolate. I decided I would savor them by eating only a small piece at a time so I would have them to eat for awhile. Here's what I think about them.

Supercounselor was a gift. Thank you very much! It has Goji berries in it. I am not particularly a fan of candied fruit, so I wasn't real sure about it, but I took a bite, and it didn't seem like candied fruit at all! The berries added a subtle twist that I found quite nice. I don't need to invoke various religions to enjoy this one! I broke my resolve and ate the whole thing in one sitting.

ZeroG Stability is pure chocolate sweetened only with Stevia, so no calories from sugars. It is a little on the bitter side. I like chocolate to be a little bitter, though this was slightly more than my personal taste. Probably because of the Stevia, it left a slightly sweet aftertaste, not bitter.

I think Madagascar was my favorite. It has a slight bite to it from the pepper. Very nice! Just enough to give it interest, but not overpower the other flavors.

I liked the crunchy nibs in Grenada. The nutmeg is also great. I like the fact you put blue-green algae in several of these.

Coco Almond Endurance also has little nutty chunks in it. Almond is nutritious and also good for what ails me. I especially like all the coconut ingredients; in fact, I think I like the coconut palm sugar the best of your sweeteners.

All in all, a command performance. Encore!

Just had to leave a note that I was so surprised and excited to find some gnosis chocolate in my local health food store! I bought a mint bar and a almond coconut bar, and while the mint is good, the almond coconut blew my mind! I absolutely love it and will be going back to stock up. I'm sure I'll end up ordering from here, too, as the selection was limited in store. Gnosis chocolate is the perfect thing for my sweet tooth! Thank you!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

Chocolate Girl,as you know I have loved your chocolate for years, but I had to tell you:, My box arrived today, - I went right for the Golden Egg, of course. Wow, I cannot believe the subtlety and depth of flavor your acheived, I will be ordering more soon! A little later, I tried the EnWhitenment Bar. I was literally blown away by the ecstasy of that experience. The end all and be all of raw white chocolate, well, I'm sure you know. I have not tried the others yet but had to write immediately, I was so impressed! Too bad I missed your easter truffles, that made me sad.
And of course, thank you SOOO much for the Aphrodisia Elixir! - You have made me very happy, this is the best-tasting psychoactive cacao drink I have had, maybe ever. I will be drinking it every day.

April 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterL

After having been able to sample them all I can surely say that all of the chocolates were quite lovely, thank you! The egg had a cinnamon/eggnog taste at first, but then I got a sense of the 'peanut butter cup' that it was probably modeled after. The truffles were all quite lovely and fruity, I think, personally, I enjoyed the hibiscus acai the best, there was just something about it....but the vanilla berry was lovely and tart, sort of how I imagine lady fingers to taste like, and the superberry was tangy and fruity. Overall, you have a superb product, and I cannot wait to try more.

April 25, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterk

Do you have them yet?

I received my (large!) order today and it's in perfect condition. I just sampled the "dazzling dark" bar. OMG - It's delicious! I love your products and the fact that I can order online. Thanks for offering a candy that is not only raw but dairy, soy & gluten free AND tastes great! Keep up the good work!

Hi, I found this chocolate at Bee-Organic in Great Neck. WOW! I wish I had had the time to try and visit you at your shop in Queens. Congrats on your products. Proof that one can add good things to this life without doing any harm to the planet or our spirit.

I tip my hat to you. Dave

Dear Vanessa,
Received our "spring chocolates" order in good condition despite an unexpected heat wave!! We've had the chance to sample the truffles and the "golden eggs." YUM!! We're looking forward to tasting the rest of our treats, but we are trying to pace ourselves -- which you make extremely difficult....
We look forward to placing more orders, but probably not until the fall, since we live in the southeastern part of the US. We're also going to pass along your info to a few stores we think might be interested in carrying your products.
Best,
Deb & Di
