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.
Hi! Saw you on a show called Love Lust & Chocolate. Glad I did! Love chocolate - always have always will. A few years ago, i was eating a snickers bar and pondering the awesomeness of chocolate, when i said "i wish they would make a chocolate bar that has healthy stuff in it like vitamins, so choc wasn't so 'bad for you' and i could have it more often." (or something close to that; it was a while ago, so quoting at this point is inexact). Anyway, thank you! Someone finally did it and granted my rhetorical wish! Also appreciate your environmental and social commitment. You are nearly as awesome as chocolate itself - which is the best compliment i have ever given. Ever. Thanks again! : D
Super Choc Bar - Score : 5/5
Product review: This was dark chocolate at its finest...and the whole raspberries could actually be seen as well as tasted...eating this was an awesome experience and healthy to boot!!
I was introduced to Gnosis Chocolate by googling "raw chocolate" and am very thankful to have found it. I read your entire site first and noticed you are a part of a project called "Raw Integrity". Then, I watched your videos on youtube about how you investigated the processing of your own product which made me feel so confident that I placed a large order that night. Once the chocolate arrived and I tried it, I knew I would never be satisfied by another chocolate so I placed another large order including Trail-Blazing Mixes and Chocolate Elixirs so I would not run out for a long time!
I have tried a number of other raw chocolates. Most are okay, some are not good, some are good but I have never tasted one that has such flavor. It is a delicacy. I would describe it as fresh and smooth with a slight "tang". And no weird sugar high that you would get from waxy "factory chocolate". It is NOT addictive (that would be scary) rather it is satisfying most likely because it is nutritious!
Tried your chocolate at the International Chocolate Show last week and loved it. Brought a SuperChoc bar and have been nibbling on it all week. Had to go to your website and buy more as this was a unique and delightful chocolate experience!
VanessaYou make the whole world smile with Chocolate.Amazing flavorsI am purchasing some for Christmas presents this year.
Thanks for all the HEALTHY chocolate products you bring to all of us,Carol
Happy Thanksgiving ... I am thankful for YOU
Dear Chocolate Girl,Gnosis Chocolate is the only chocolate my nutritionist will let me eat. I absolutely am crazy for it!Your body even feels great after you eat it. I can even taste the love you have added.Thank you for bringing such a wonderful product to the market.Best wishes for continued success!Kristen
Hi Chocolate Girl,i would to thank you for your great work and your passion about Life Food.The Gnosis chocolate looks like a gift from good.It is a great gift for my heart to see that the raw way goes aroud the world to inspire other hearts.Wish you and your team a very nice chocolate day.Raw greetings from Munich, Germany.
I have a hunch that if Mother Nature decided to go into the chocolate business that her product would closely resemble the Gnosis Chocolate Bars. I admire chocolate and have been fortunate to have several opportunities to review some really premium and delicious RAW chocolate bars. I have to admit that Gnosis has been a chocolate experience like none other. One does not simply eat a Gnosis Chocolate Bar just to appease a hankering for the flavor of chocolate. These bars in fact nourish your chi and your palate. My favored bar is the SuperChoc, which is a powerful super-food cloaked in the rich taste and smooth texture of raw, organic cacao.
Gnosis Chocolate has changed the way I eat chocolate, I now have guilt-free chocolate-time. :)Thank you Earthgirl Vanessa for introducing me to GC. I appreciate all the time AND LOVE you give to make our world a sweeter place.Thank you thank you. <3

Simply the best raw chocolate I have ever eaten. Thank you for making such a wonderful, healthy product. I can't get enough of it!
WOW!! SO delicious!
Dear Vanessa and everyone.I am haruka. From japan. yesterday your chocolates arrived to me!!!! Wow!!!!! I was so happy to have them:)Thank you so much,Bridget! and also thank you for lovely mail to me every time! i ate your chocolates last night. Great! Great! Wonderful~~~~~~!
Your chocolates are SO wonderful !! I couldnt stop eating them. Also i can feel the heart with love from lovely chocolates ;) Hummmmm......YUMMY!!!!!!! Your chocolates make me blissful and shining. My body and soul have great expriences in your beautiful mystical chosolate world:) I love your chocolates and your flavor. If i have a chance to visit NYC,i'd love to visit your store! Definitely, i order yours again soon:)
Hi,I think your commitment to using high quality, sustainable, natural, healthy ingredients is amazing.Why my tax dollars subsidize corn-syrup when they should be helping people like you (who are trying to make Americanshealthier!), I'll never understand.Thanks
Wonderful what more can I say but this and ''Delicious'' Keep up the good work.
Here's the problem:Your chocolate is way too delicious. I just ordered 4 more bars and they are already half eaten. It doesn't help that when I love something, I want to share it with people. Every time someone is over at my house, I say "you have to try this chocolate!" they love it so I give them more, despite the fact that I have such a small supply. i love your chocolate so much, and I want the while world to love it. I'm so happy you make such a magical and heavenly product. Anyways, I'm spreading the word out here. When we come to NY in october, I'm coming and stocking up!
Hi Vanessa! I have the utmost respect, admiration and trust for your company and products. Please keep up the good work. The Superberry Lime bar and Goldenberry Jam are definitely my favorites but I love all of your products. I love them so much that I've prompted several stores to begin carrying them. Thanks for all of your efforts!
I was so happy to read your latest email! We recently visited or son who is a student at St John's University Med School in Grenada. The island has a magic about it, but the poverty is visible everywhere. Your intention to help Grenada promote their chocolate and therefore create jobs and lift the people up, and give them a sense of pride in themselves and their country gives me hope for these people. We got hooked on their chocolate while there. The darker the better.
Dear Gnosis Chocolate,
Your cashew goji berry chocolate bar is the best chocolate I have ever tasted! Thank you! I can't wait to try more kinds of gnosis chocolate.
I first encountered Gnosis chocolate at the Westchester County Chocolate Expo, Nov 2010 and have been a big fan ever since (stocking up with online orders every month or so!). Other chocolate doesn't taste as good to me now, especially the processed kind! As a plain-chocolate kind of gal I started out with Fleur de Sel and Simplicity but have grown to love almost all of your flavors - you do such a good job of pairing flavors and tastes, I know I can count on any GNOSIS bar to be out-of-this-world chocolate goodness :) Best of luck for continued success and I look forward to new creations!
Hi, just wanted to share how much I enjoy your salt Chocolate! great work. Thank you for helping heal the world through chocolate.
Hi Vanessa,I just wanted to let you know how much I LOVE Gnosis Chocolate. Ihave been a vegetarian for more than 5 years, and I went vegan almosta year ago, and I'm still in the process of finding food I can eatthat I don't have to make myself. While some dark chocolate is vegan,most aren't all-natural and almost none contain the health benefits inyour chocolate. Plus, Gnosis Chocolate is incredibly delicious! Mywhole family (all of whom still eat meat) loves it.Thank you so much for this amazing product!
Hi Vanessa, It's Steve in Bermuda. Your package arrived today in fine shape; I'm tasting the "Supercounselor" right now, and I must say it's pretty incredible. I'm looking forward to making all sorts of lovely things with these ingredients.
Has anyone tried cupuacu? It's a close relative of chocolate and can be used as a chocolate substitute. Let me know, I'm curious to try it.
This is hands down the best chocolate I have ever had! I am a true "chocoholic" and over the past year have been slowly changing my diet gravitating towards vegetarianism. This of course came with chocolate withdrawal. I researched Gnosis Chocolate after reading an old article at the Shape Magazine website where ageless super model Christie Brinkley mentions the brand. She is almost 60 years old and I believe she looks younger than me (I'm 32). The model says "I believe in treating yourself occasionally to something. But then keep other things in your fridge like those great Gnosis Chocolates. They're like the healthiest chocolate that I know of that literally it is like taking a bite of antioxidants. It's got like Acai berries mixed in with this very pure cocoa and you're really getting antioxidants and healthful benefits in each bite. They say it is anti-aging to eat that chocolate." Needless to say I immediately started looking for this chocolate. :) I am so glad that I came across this article. Chocolate is now back in my life (one square at a time) and I love that it is back is such a healthy way. My mom who is a diabetic tasted it and loved it too. Since I've changed my diet, I have lost 20 lbs and just want to say THANK YOU for providing such delicious alternatives to the chocolates that are on store shelves filled with all sorts of unhealthy preservatives and refined sugars. You can truly taste the LOVE in every bite of this chocolate! :)
Vanessa,How exciting to share with all of us the beauty of Physical Exercise.I thank you for changing the way America lives their lives " one BITE at a time "Your chocolate is out of this world.

Oh, oh -- I think I'm addicted. What delicious, delectable, extraordinary chocolate! Mine arrived last Thursday & I've been nibbling ever since. The Cashew Almond and the Superberry are the favs so far. We have to get them into Ontario stores (otherwise, the individual shipping charges are a killer).
Thank you from Canada for providing these wonderful, healthy treats!
Where in NYC can I buy Gnosis Chocolate at bulk???? Thank you!!
I think I may be becoming addicted to your gem-like truffles! Thank you for the information on your autoship program. I'll be sure to check out the details and let you know if I have any questions.Is it quite difficult to get your chocolate bars into Whole Foods for other states? I think Texas needs them and we definitely don't want the lone star state to go without ;-)
Hi Vanessa – my husband surprised me with a fantastic gift box from Gnosis – been eating/buttering my body/etc. . . for the past three days !!! Thanks for helping him out over the phone – he told me that he spoke with “HER” personally !!! I told him what a love you are and that you’ve created this marvelous product at a very young age as well. We marveled in your success as well as your beauty !!!
Thank you Vanessa . . .
Oh my! The heat was just enough to feel it perfectly with a glass of red wine. The added fruit and nuts added the sweet chew that helped prolong the depth of flavor.
I had expected the lack of dairy to create a dearth of cooling that good chocolate often creates on your tongue. I was shocked in the best possible of ways when it provided the perfect in the mouth melt and subsequent temperature drop that increased the flavor sensation. The heat, though touted as intense, was not intense in the least and most closely resembled an addition of flavor rather than a trip through taste torture.
I recommend this chocolate for those of us who want a flavor experience in addition to an amazing chocolate base. The foundation of this bar is far above average, their addition of the heat (and sweet) is clever and sets this producer's product above most other chocolates. The fact that it's vegan is simply the non-dairy icing on the gluten free cake.
"Dear Vanessa,I got the delivery in Shanghai, thank you so much! It was like Christmas came early when I was tearing open the box J I’ve tried a bite of the Superberry Lime and the Coconut & almond- both are SO SO SO GOOD! I want to share them with my friends but at the same time I don’t, ha ha JHope you have a good weekend,Cheers, Kimberly"
Hi Chocolate Girl!! I recently received my fabulous order and just wanted to say how much I am loving my chocolate cinnamon soap, facial serum and mist. Don't ask me how, but so far I have managed to use restraint and have not attacked my spring gift pack of truffles, chocolate bars, trail mix and spreads. I am confident that when I do, I am going to be as pleased with those items as I have been with the skin care!!!
Is it normal to fall in love with the team @ Gnosis after the first bite? Just tasted the Spring Truffles & I'm head over heels for all of you! I'm a huge foodie that enjoys the wonderful taste of delicious healthy vegan food .... especially chocolate! I would love to come to NY and visit some day! Thanks for my moment of bliss today :)
i just had a breakfast of your Fleur de Sel with some raspberry jam and a croissant and let me tell you it's a song!
Just tried your chocolate today. I want to compliment you...it is delicious. I am addicted, I ate 2 bars today. I am a raw chocolate convert thanks to you. Keep up the great work!
I found out about your products at last years IIN conference, I work at Jazz@Lincoln Center as an usher and was able to hear many of the presentations over the course of the summer, including David Wolfe. Since then I have bought your chocolate when I could and ate a piece each morning along with my breakfast. It may have all these health benefits and whatnot, but it just plain feels good. Thank you very much for responding to my question!
I just wanted to say thank you. Vanessa I met you on Sunday, May 6th at the Meadowlands show. I cannot say enough about your product. I just took a piece from the Fleur De Sel and I am totally in love. It is truely amazing. I am usually not a dark chocolate lover, but this is totally different. I am so excited to have met and spoken to you and how passionate you are about your product. I also bought the trail mixture that is also amazing. thanks again for such a great product.
Dear Vanessa,I love your chocolates so much! Of course I happen to be a chocolate lover to begin with, but when I eat Gnosis I don't have to feel guilty because it's so packed with superfoods and the highest quality ingredients and love :o) so thanks!My favorites so far are the SuperChoc and PowerChoc Bars.Chocolate Blessings,Catherine Moon
Dear Vanessa,LATE last Wednesday I found myself online reading about the many health attributes of cacao and found a review comparing several 'brands' which included Gnosis and, AH HA! everything for which I was searching: vegan, raw, pure, organic, low in sugar, AND not something I had planned to find: Made By Hand! One click and I was opening the online equivalent to a Treasure Chest. Now mind you it was late at night so I knew I HAD to place an order before I went to sleep, and started by scrutinizing each one of the Bars, all the while thinking, "could this chocolate really taste as good as I am feeling just by reading the seductive descriptions, contents and attributes of each delicious sounding dilemma?" Having finally made my decision of 2 fleur de sel, aphrodisia, and coconut almond bars, and about to place the order I questioned how much would the shipping be? So I sent an email with that question, and resolved to call it a night and wait for an answer in the morning, but before I could finish brushing my teeth, I received your reply: that the shipping would be the quick ship USPS at the standard flat rate. With my question answered I placed my order and had it shipped to my work address; safe from my home's mailbox and the heat of South Florida's Winter. My order was shipped the very next day and delivered on Saturday to my work address where it was safe and cool. What a great surprise to open my job's mailbox and find the box containing what I knew must be jewels. Upon entering the office and before doing anything else, I tore into a fleur de sel bar and savored such a flavor that was everything which I had hoped! The other flavors were equally astounding. I made it home with the second fleur de sel bar unopened, and partially finished aphrodisia and coconut almond bars (having shared with my co-workers!) My partner at home promptly finished what was left of the aphrodisia bar asking if there was anymore of 'that one?' He doesn't even like dark chocolate. If you haven't seen "Portlandia" and the cacao vignette... you must!
Many thanks to you Vanessa and Team Gnosis! As commented by others "excellent customer service" and above all a truly superior and unique chocolate. This is just the beginning of my search and discovery of Gnosis' other treasures.
Best regards,CameronMiami, FL
PSHaving a vague idea of the definition of 'Gnosis' I turned to wikipedia:
"Gnosis itself is obtained through understanding at which one can arrive via inner experience or contemplation such as an internal epiphany..."
I just recieved my order and I have to say this chocolate is the most delicious chocolate I have ever tasted. Also, the most suprising of all my husband liked it and he doesn't like much. Bravo! We will definately be ordering again.
I got my chocolates for my wife for valentines day. They were fantastic!! She really loved the Counselor Bar particularly, but they were all great!!! Love the quality and appreciate your hard work!!
I had the true pleasure of meeting you, Vanessa, and sampling Gnosis chocolate at the Sept., 2010 IIN graduation. I only eat quality organic dark chocolate, however your chocolate by far surpasses anything I've had. The blends you've created are phenomenal, all working so well together! I applaud your resourcefulness and integrity in creating such magical products!My Valentines Day order arrived just as promised. The six bars I ordered for myself are being shared sparingly and lovingly! My friends in Portland, OR who received their Valentine gift pack right on time (thank you so much :)!) are in awe. These were my first orders, but certainly far from my last!
I ordered your Chocolate Cinnamon Soap Bar, How Now Brown Cacao Lotion and Aphrodsia Bar for my husband and the soap for our married children for Valentines Day. My husband and I have really enjoyed the products. The lotion smells good enough to eat! I'll have to let you know later if the soap has removed the cellulite! LOL Thanks for the great products.
Greetings from the deep South. I have just received my first order of Gnosis Chocolate consisting of two Aphrodesia bars and one Coconut Almond. The Aphrodesia bars were gifts for Valentine's Day. The Coconut Almond bar I ate myself. The chocolate flavor was prominent but not overwhelming as it also allowed the coconut and almond tastes to come through. The texture was somewhat surprising. It was smooth and yet slightly granular at the same time. However, the texture was not unpleasant. The bottom line is that I really enjoyed the chocolate and appreciated the absence of refined sugar and dairy.
What a WONDERFUL job you are doing! Love everything about your chocolates, your packaging, and your support of organic farmers all over the world! I got a sampler of chocolates as a gift and they were YUMMY! I have gotten the Passion Collection for each of the couples attending my Holistic Childbirth class on Valentine's Day. I am sure Mamas AND babies will enjoy them!Keep up the great work!
I love your chocolate. It makes me feel like I'm doing something good for myself instead of eating junk but it's also a treat. I also started adding your cocoa to my coffee. It is helping my cut down on coffee but still have a warm drink in the morning.
