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!
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!
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!
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
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!!
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!Sincerely, Donna
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.
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"!
How many different ways can I say, "delicious". A must try for cashew lovers; chocolate lovers. Healthy ingredients. Guilt free chocolate. Thank you!
Very vivid delicious flavors. All healthy ingredients, no guilt chocolate. Thank you for this creation!
Incredible experience. Deep chocolate flavor, no sugar. No guilt. awesome!
I am so happy with my gift set of skin care products. I am making a list of the full size products that I will be ordering. The aromas are intoxicating, & I know the essential oils are wonderful for my skin. Thank~You so much for caring for environment :))
I just had the BEST chocolate I've EVER had! Tried your Mayan Heat and absolutely love it!
Thanks! Great job!
Hello Everyone, I am changed, gnosis enriched- chocolate elixer- immune boost trail mixed! Thanks to u chocolate girl-I will never be the same- new customers headed your way- you have already had an excellent persimmon review, from my "raw" friends...aurevior,aphrodisia chocolate elixer next
Sure glad to see the continuous love here, flowing between us, because of you- chocolate girl!!! When my order comes- I will revisit the guest book- in ceremonya<3
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 GnosisChocolate—vegan, gluten-free, raw, AND low-glycemic! Even with all this, theytaste delectable! Now these chocolates are sweetened with agave, so I wasdelighted to learn they are offering a “sweet choice” of coconut sugar in lieuof agave: basically the same flavor with two options for sweetener: agave orcoconut sugar. In the name of science—and my excited tastebuds—I decided totake the challenge of trying BOTH sweet choices! Oh be still, my heart! Theflavors I tried were Gratitude (vanilla hazelnut), Mayan Heat (chili) and Rejuvenate(pomegranate-acai). I liked the original agave for these, so I wanted to seehow 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 forthe gods; with the chili, berries and nuts, it is indeed ambrosia. I break offa square, touch it, sniff it, eye it, and only then do I pop it into my mouthto let its flavors roll into my tongue. Chocolate is indeed a multi-sensorycelebration of the senses.
I start with the new coconut sugar option, asindicated not only by the ingredient list but by the little green coconut treeson the package. The chocolate snaps crisp, it smells like chili and burnt sugarand dark velvet night. I pop one in, and the flavors come in real subtly, allrobed in the dark crystal sweetness of the coconut sugar. The chili comes as aslow burn throughout, punctuated first by the black currants, then the softpecans. I would pair this with a dark roast coffee, or a full-bodied red wine.
I then try the agave. Like an old flame, itstill invites me. The chocolate breaks with a sigh, a bit more of a give. Itsmells of ritual and dark treacle and tart berries. I taste it, and the flavorscome languidly in but all at once, like a fiery fudge. I taste the pecans, thenthe black currants, with the chili enrobing it all. For the agave, I would gofor a medium roast coffee, and a sweet port.
The Mayan Heat is my favorite; however chocolateis still queen of my heart, and she has other flavors besides. I next try thePomegranate-Acai in coconut sugar. Sure enough, it snaps clean. I taste moretartness, with the sweet burnt sugar somehow reminiscent of the sugarcanefields I visited in my youth in the Philippines, the tassels waving the summerbreeze. I would love this with maybe a Muscat.
I then try the agave version of thePomegranate-Acai. The agave gives its softer texture, more treacly sweetness. Itaste the acai here, but sweeter. I would maybe try a nice prosecco orchampagne with this: bubbles with berries!
Then for a more classic flavor, I try theVanilla Hazelnut. As always, I try the new kid on the block first, coconutsugar. I’m loving that crisp break now as I snap off a square from its partnerinside. The coconut sugar Vanilla Hazelnut is darker, more subtle, and I tastethe 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 SOmuch better, and without dairy, or transfats, or rancid oils, and so muchFRESHER! The agave just brings it all together somehow: the hazelnut, vanilla,raw chocolate all melt in my mouth with the agave tasting like deliciousalmost-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 firstto spout off the improbability of me allergic to it, and instead point to howhealthy it can be! And I am glad I am not the only chocoholic health nut outthere: thank you, Gnosis for fresh, healthy chocolate manna.
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!
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.
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.
I have been waiting for a couple of years for nutritional info on your products. Do you have them yet?Thanks..................
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
4 years of joy, love and creativity, power and magic! Love you goddess!!! So glad that I was part of it and am still in.my heart!!!
Wow. I can't believe its been 4 years now. Its been an honor watching you and Gnosis Chocolate succeed and grow. Vanessa you are a great inspiration and teacher. Thank you. I look forward to and can't even imagine what's coming in the next four years.
awesome work Vanessa! I can't wait until your chocolate hits the West Coast. I met a buddy of yours today from Marin. We r waiting for your CA debut :D
i cant belive it has only been 4 years vanessa!! BTW I was in chicago over the weekend and found gnosis in some store. It made me so happy!
Your website is amazing. I love it! I have learned so much. I am taking a more active role in my health. I am eating healthy foods. I am also taking better care of myself. you are such an inspiration to me. thanks again.
Hi Vanessa, I just tried your new chocolate bar with the coconut sugar and I totally love it.I've been confused about all that is said about agave and so this is a perfect alternative sweetener.The chocolate is just as smooth and creamy, yummy as always.I for one would love it if more of your bars are made with the coconut sugar.As always you never disapppoint. Thanks for your love and care put in all your products. It really shows. Sincerely, Monika Dawideit
Met you guys at the Chocolate Festival in NYC a couple years ago. It was the most awesome and amazing surprise to taste such fabulous raw chocolate! A year went by, and suddenly I found bars at a nearby health food store! Yay! Now I have a regular supply, and have gotten friends and family to try and love your delicious chocolates.
Even my dislike anything healthy teen LOVES these bars. They are the best chocolate anywhere.
I just wanted to let you know how much I am LOVING your products! Everything I've tasted so far has been unbelievably delicious! After going Raw I thought I would never be able to enjoy chocolate like this again, and by putting your product out there it's going to make it a whole lot easier for this chocoholic to stay Raw! Thanks so much for what you do! I'm already planning my next order :)
I first bought and tasted a Gnosis bar last year in Cambridge, MA. I was hooked! The best raw cacao bars I've tasted anywhere. A little goes a long way! Thank you Team Gnosis!!! <3
I LOVE these bars. I gave up refined sugar..and these are my sweet tooth savior. I also eat the cocoa nibs with honey and greek yogurt...so Good!! I order every month..and savor every bite. Thanks to you all for giving my husband and I a treat to look forward to.
I have ordered many times from Vanessa and her team, and the reason being, is that what they have created is a line of IncrediblyAmazingAwesomelyDeliciousHeavenonEarth chocolates! This isn't just my opinion - everyone that I introduce them to is equally wowed. They also are excellent at customer service as I can atest to through an experience of sending some of their love to Canada.Well done from top to bottom (and especially the part in the middle ;)My Highest & Best for continued success!Tom from WI
Loved the chocolate! I'm in California and I'm surprised at how fast the product was delivered to me. The gift wrapping was nice, and I loved the handwritten note that contained my message. This was the perfect Valentine's Day gift (had to open it early. =) The chocolate is SO good! We will definitely order from Gnosis Chocolate again.
Hey, I love your chocolates!! they are the best vegan chocolates i have tried so far! I also promote healthy eating and lifestyle and found your chocolates at a local health food store in brooklyn,. i would love to display your HTML on my website! www.ladyellie.com
We found you by watching a show called The Chocolate Tourist online. One of our friends, Valerie, is the host of the show as well as the producer, Courtney. In the video she interviewed Vanessa by your booth at the Chocolate Show in NYC. We liked what we heard about your ideals of healthy and raw products and decided to order some for ourselves and for others as Christmas gifts.
Thank you so much for creating this chocolate! We cannot wait to try some for ourselves.
