What can I say ? your chocolate blew me away !!! I have done the raw food thing for a few months then fell off track and need to get back on the bus. But during that time I never thought to have raw chocalate, I thought it would be bitter and not so great. I needed a source of energy and you informed me that this would do the trick and I must say not only did it give me the jolt i needed to get thru my day but it tasted amazing. I had to eat small pieces at a time from preventing myself from eating all 4 bars in one sitting. Your chocalate shows the love that has been put in every piece, my hat goes off to you and your team and I look forward in trying more great flavors.
Make it a chocolate day !!!Vincent
Hey Vanessa -
I've just received my 3rd order since I discovered you about 2 months ago. I never dreamt that raw food could taste so divine.
I've traveled to Belgium and eaten chocolates there, and I enjoy your bars more. Not only is the chocolate dark and delicious, but I can feel all the other good stuff you've embedded within.:)
Can't imagine being without your chocolate, now that I've discovered it. Thank you so much for the creativity and love you put into your products.
All good wishes,
Dearest Vanessa,I forgot just how fantastic the Lemon Berry Rose bar truly Is! Proof comes from an unsolicited remark by my 5 year old son, Ryker: "Momma? I call this chocolate, The Beauty of Joy!" I have laughed about that a lot. So many people are excited about your product up here. I have been spreading the word that Chocolate can taste wonderful, feel enriching while giving back to the planet that sustains us. So proud of you!Muchas Gracias!Jen (the picture is of your biggest chocolate fans from Alaska, plus views of home )
My birthday was yesterday, St. Patty's day and I ate one of the new special St. Patty's day chocolate bars to celebrate. I just have to tell you, this special chocolate bar was absolutely "FABULOUS!" It was pure chocolate heaven! I really, really enjoyed it!!! Thank you for creating such a wonderful, and earth helping treat!:)
Hey there, Vanessa!
I was a lucky recipient of your specially-made Super Counselor bar at IIN a few weeks ago. After experiencing Gnosis Chocolate, I just HAD to pass the luck along, and purchased a Luck Choc bar for each of my coworkers here at Habitat for Humanity in Bucks County, PA. They are currently gnoshing on the Gnosis awesomeness and are beyond delighted. Nyohm, nyohm!
Dear Vanessa: I just took a bite of each of your four chocolate bars from the special offer,(4 bars for $30.00). What a very special treat! Thank you for the love and care you put into your product. My daughter is now going through IIN, saw you and tasted your chocolate. She raved about it, so I decided to splurge and try it too. I appreciate your contribution to the FTPF. The world is in need of their mission, and I am happy to contribute to it while savoring your wonderful, healthy chocolate. Keep up the great, inspiring work Vanessa!To the good health of all--Gratefully,Krista
Hi, I am INS student. Thank you for your presentation last weekend and for your treat))). It was the most delicious chocolate I ever tasted in my life. The message on the bar was very powerful too. Thank you so much!
I am definetely addicted to your chocolate, there is no denying it. I don't think I'll ever go back to eating ordinary chocolate ever again. Yours is sooo much better, you can taste the quality ingredients used and definetely feel all the LOVE put into making them. Love 'em all so far, as well as the chocolate girls for making them!
Your chocolate enthusiast,Luis F
Thanks so much for the Glorious chocolate bar!! i was able to save some and share it with a friend and my boyfriend and they loved it!! so I say if I got the approval of a guy then that says a lot!
Dear Vanessa & Team,
Thank you so much for stopping by IIN last week and for the chocolate bars you made for us. It was so thoughful and generous of you. Your chocolate is not only delicious it didn't make me feel wired and hyper like other dark chocolate does. Something good and good for you at last. It must be all that love and care you put in it. What a great gift to the world!
Thank you so much for your wonderful chocolate bar that I got at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition last weekend. I have always been a chocoholic, feeling guilty afterwards and not feeling so good. Your chocolate tasted great, felt great afterwards and best of all I didn't have to feel guilty. Actually it is good for me, yeah! You have truly saved my life. Thank you so very much.
Vanessa and gnosis team,Gracias, thank you, merci---for your incredible generosity to the students of Institute for Integrative Nutrition this weekend. I was truly inspired by your testimony. And your chocolate is amazing--I am still savoring tiny bites of it and feeling all the energy and love that went into this food, which you have made into art. THANKS!
Hi, Chocolate Girl. The Valentine Chocolate was my first experience with your chocolate. Totally nummy. Wish I could get your chocolate locally instead of via snail mail. BTW, I love Ginger and Chocolate but as a vegan, do not eat honey. Any plans of putting Agave in a Ginger version?
All my best to you!
Chocolate Girl! I was never that big on chocolate. But now that I'm moving towards the Raw Life, and all its ideals, I find that sometimes I crave a bit of something sweet, and mellow, and fragrant, and lush as a treat--and your chocolate is it! I have never tasted one with such depth of flavor or smoothness of mouthfeel. It's so, if I weren't raw or if I were unaware of environmental issues, I'd still never have conventional chocolate again. Because yours is that good. Now I can "eat my values" with candy, too, and it's a great feeling!
I am a dark chocolate lover, but have had to avoid chocolate for years because the caffeine keeps me up at night. I was so thrilled to discover Gnosis chocolates. It is so delicious, good for you, and the flavors are so wonderful. The lower caffeine levels make such a difference, and I can now enjoy a bit of my favorite treat each day. My favorites have been the cool peppermint, almond fig spice, and blackberry mint, but now, the new honey ginger has been added to my list too! It is smooth, with the perfect bite of ginger and sweetness of honey in the mix. This is a great product. I try to always have some Gnosis chocolates in the house!
My name is Angel, and yes that is my birth given name, I live in Richmond, Va. and I recently had one of your chocolate bars for Valentine's Day, bought for me by my boy friend Jack, who loves your chocolate, and it was wonderful. Jack is hooked on your bars and he once placed an order for 300 bars, this was before we met, but I now see why he did that...your chocoalte is great! I have never been a big chocolate fan until now. I'm not an angel investor but I just had to write you to let you now that I LOVE YOUR CHOCOLATE! Thank you for being so loving and caring in the production of chocolate and please keep up the good work. Much love and happiness.
tried your chocolate at Jorge Cruise's office in San Diego, CA. today ( Monday, Feb 16th 2009 ) absolutely amazing
I just wanted to say that I'm in love with your chocolate. When I transitioned to RAW, I was pumped I discovered your bars. I didn't want to have to live without chocolate!! The cashew goji cherry is a godsent and so is the almond fig spice. Can't wait to try more flavors.
I can't tell you enough how happy I am that I found your chocolate. I haven't ordered any yet but I am going to in a couple of days, all of the flavors look fantastic and that will be the hard to of choosing which ones I want. I have been a raw vegan for a couple of months now and didn't think I would ever have chocolate again and I used to be such a chocolate fiend, now I don't have to give up one of my favorite things, thanks to you.
I would like to thank you for the lovely chocolate....pfffh are they tasty. You have a customer for life ;-)
Cacao was the first superfood that Wolfe got me interested way back in 2007. What a journey! I love cacao in any shape and form. I've tasted many a raw chocolate bar, but none come close to the amazing flavors and creaminess that Vanessa can produce.

I just purchased some new flavors from Gnosis and LOVE them! I really love the Cool Peppermint - such a treat after I eat and it really seems to help my digestion.Keep those amazing bars coming Vanessa! I'm addicted. :)Gina
After I read David Wolfe's Naked Chocolate book, I was inspired to make chocolate myself, but then I have been busy with other things and then when I discovered your chocolate... it is something that I would make myself for myself... energizing, natural and tasty!
Thank you Vanessa and big thank you to your hard-working team!
Vanessa, You've created a fabulous product. I groaned with delight all the way through the two pieces my friend gave me. I squirreled the third away in the back of my fridge, and then decided this was the snack that would keep me honest over the holidays!
Your chocolate looks so delicious and truly nutritious!! I'm looking forward to ordering some soon, and can't wait to try it. All your flavors look so amazing, it'll be hard to pick. Thank you for making this wholesome chocolate. It's something much needed in our world where Hershey's and Snicker's bars are considered the norm, and RAW chocolate is sparsely available.
I got your package today & it was so hard to decide which one to try first. I ended up with the Blackberry Mint and I was reminded of the Peter Rabbit/Benjamin Bunny books by Beatrix Potter;don't know why though-I think I've only read 2 of them anyway.Maybe they were caught in a berry patch-I don't know. Or maybe it was becasue I've seen rabbits eating my blackberry leaves here. Who knows.
Either way, it's a really good uplifting & refreshing bar. I love the authenticness of the seeds in it. Someone should make blackberry/mint shower gel & tooth paste. And tea. Victoria's Secret should make pj's with pictures of blackberries & mint leaves on them. I guess this bar really went to my head.
Thanks for making such a terrific product.
I am sitting here typing, consuming yet another bar! My favourite though is the lemon berry rose. Heavens knows I am going to end up eating all the bars - even the ones I intend to sell here in Cyprus! They have received the thumbs up from everyone who has tried them, including my fussy, non-raw husband.
Well done on mothering such beautiful, imaginative and delicious creations!
Thank you for creating such a beautiful product line. I am going to share the bars I purchased with everyone I love! Every bar I have tried has been my favorite!
Oh & thank you for your kind words, I am glad you liked vegclips, its not a very busy website (yet) but I truely hope to see lots of chocolate videos from you on there!
thank you so much again, I am so happy & grateful to have found your company!! :)
Your chocolate bars are absolutely wonderful, very moist, fresh ingredients and very interesting pairing of flavors such as the lemon berry rose bar, almong fig spice, vanilla hazelnut bars, I have one more flavor to sample.... as I scarfed up the bars at the rate of one to two a day...... I think I will order more soon, probably real soon, but pace myself a little more. Again, super healthy and delicious chocolate. Thank you!
Dear Vanessa, My boyfriend has had severe migraines for years...he WAS getting them once or twice a week. He just told me today, "ya know, ever since I met you (4 months ago) I've only had 2 or 3 migraines"..we spoke about it being the chocolate, I told him about the magnesium, etc. I know it has to be the chocolate bc within the first week we were seeing each other he told me he loved chocolate and I had him try your product, it's all he eats since. He eats at least a bar a day, the simplicity bc he is allergic to nuts. This chocolate saves relationships, I don't know if I could put up with him having migraines that often!!
Hi Vanessa,OH MY GOD IT”S WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!! And to think that it’s not only healthy but a superfood! I kept feeling guilty eating it but had to keep reminding myself that it’s healthy!!!!!!! WOW!
Katherine ShegrudDirector of Practice DevelopmentNational Integrated Health Associateswww.nihadc.com
Hi Vanessa,I want to applaud you for such a great job with creating your chocolate and your business! I am so happy that you made a chocolate that is vegan, raw, organic, free of sugar and only uses ingredients from small farmers. It is really very hard to find this combination that I usually end up making my own. I just found your site so I haven't had a chance to try your chocolate but will find some soon. By the way, the Common Market in Frederick, MD might be a great place to market, or even MOM's My Organic Market in Frederick or Silver Spring, MD.
I want to let you know that I will be writing about you in a blog post on my website. I am a personal chef and I cook for people for a living. However, I am just about to launch my new site where I am offering a weekly menu planner for people who are allergic to dairy, wheat and/or soy products. Your chocolate is so perfect for people in this category - not only is it dairy-free, it is sugar-free and uses agave instead. Many people who have allergies or sensitivities to foods are usually sensitive to sugar, so I am so happy that you use agave. Hopefully I can send some business your way!
Anyway, good luck and keep up the great work. Oh and I also love the fact that you make each chocolate bar by hand. that is truly remarkable!You can check me out at http://heartofcooking.com and my new site will be up within a week.Salaams,Sarah Schatz
A few weeks back I discovered Gnosis Chocolate while I was poking around the internet, something I am always doing. I truly enjoy researching and trying new products that can help move us to greater levels of vitality and awareness.
I spoke briefly with the owner and founder of Gnosis, Vanessa Barg, and she was super passionate about her business and products. I think it is noteworthy that Gnosis supplies Chocolate Bars to www.sunfood.com, David Wolfe’s superfood company.
David is fanatical about quality. I mean off the hook super stringent. So the fact that he carries her products says a lot. A whole lot.
I will get to how the bars and chocolate taste her in a second, but a few more interesting facts about Gnosis.
-Vanessa sources the highest quality ingredients from small local farms and growers around the world. This supports them with a fair wage and it encourages organic and sustainable farming. Very nice.
-10% of her profits go to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation which can be found at http://www.ftpf.org/ This is a really worth cause. And, 10% of profits is a hefty %. Way to go Vanessa.
Ok, the chocolate. I ordered 4 bars including SuperChoc, Simplicity, Coconut Almond, and Cashew Goji Cherry. They were all fantastic and gone in less than a week. Yep, gone in less that a week. One is dense enough nutritionally to last you a week but the taste and vitality boost you get is just awesome.
My favs were Simplicity and Coconut Almond.
I also ordered some bulk chocolate powder. Wow. So much darker and tastier than anything else I have tried. Amazing and very very affordable.
I ordered some more bars and I am going to share them with a local medi-spa that I am doing some consulting for. I plan to use chocolate as a vehicle to talk about wellness and vitality - my passion.
My advice. Check out Gnosis Chocolate today at www.gnosischocolate.com
Try some of the specials. You will support and a flowering entrepreneur, sustainable farming, and a good cause. Your taste buds and body will thank you.
Oh, and remember, this chocolate is really really good for you. Super low in caffeine and rich in antioxidants....more than Goji, Blueberry, and Green Tea! And, it has compounds that just make you feel alive. Go for it.
Dear Chocolate Girl,
You are an inspirational person, I admire your business integrity and conscious business practices and spirit. Your personal attention to each and every one of your customers is unrivaled and should set the example for others as you seem to treat all clients equally whether large or small.
Your product helped keep me going during the two week intensive travel schedule in and around Raw Spirit Festival.
Your ingredients are obviously top notch and I have been telling my friends that its like having a "Super Food smoothie in a bar". Or a portable superelixir tonic infused with the worlds top superfoods and raw cacao tying it all together.
Gnosis Chocolate is my absolute favorite raw bar period.
Thank you for all that you do!Rawtographer
I thought it would taste mellow, but it's hella strong and flavorful. It has a kick. I like bitter, and I thought it had plenty of bitter. Not too fatty, but very smooth. Theobromine content was very satisfying. I had the orange blossom and the mint. If I could afford it, I would have one everyday for a week, once a month.
I just had to send a thank you for making such an amazing product, it is by far the best raw chocolate I have ever had! I was able to meet you at the Raw Spirit Festival (sorry for eating all the samples :) and you were so nice. Thank you for all you are doing and helping make peoples lives happier and healthier. I will surely be buying more!
It was a blessing to experience gnosis at the Raw Spirit Fest. Thank you for sharing witheveryone. That was so cool. Im not even sure if the Gnosis family was even there to sell.You just kept giving it out!! And for that I am greatful. So, I was given a flyer/card about your products and I noticed you give 10% to FTPF!!That is so sweet. It always goes to heart when I hear about any company that gives toan enviromental organization like FTPF. I am very impressed and would like to offer my help to the Gnosis family.I have not seen your products for sale where I live in San Diego I am willing to rep yourproducts to get it in some of our local conscious stores. I am not looking for compensation,but would like to offer some assitance because I believe in the mission of Gnosis. No doubt. Keep up the goodness!!
I am just dropping by to give you some love. I happened to be at the David Wolfe talk on Sunday and was really excited to see you. I have known of you and your chocolates primarily from GI2MR and WLIR, I have checked out your site but never had a chance to try your bars. The other week I heard you on the Raw Spirit radio podcast. I was so impressed and inspired by what you said. You were probably one of the youngest people on there, but spoke so eloquently!
So when I happened to stop by Erewhon on Saturday night I was surprised and excited to see that David would be there and also excited to see your product right next to the other raw chocolates. I picked up the almond fig bar that night and savored it with my boyfriend on the drive home. Then comes Sunday and there you are! Not a picture but the actual Vanessa! I am starting up my own business doing green smoothie delivery. It's really mom and pop right now. I make green smoothies in the morning and deliver them to my coworkers daily. I started by just doing a green smoothie demo day in the office, to celebrate green smoothie day with The Raw Divas and realized that I loved blowing people away with delicious raw food. So to see you cranking away feeding the people and speaking to everyone that walked by was really what I needed to see. I didn't get a chance to talk to you. You seemed pretty busy and quite honestly I was talked out after following David around the store for 4 hours. What I did take away was hearing you explain to someone that you printed and cut your labels at home for the first 6 months. I really appreciate that I was able to just see and feel the passion and commitment that you have put into your business. So thank you for being an example and inspiration to myself and many other raw entrepreneurs. And thank you for bringing such a beautiful product to us!
I just wanted to send a note to let you know what a beautiful light to the world you are! I absolutely hands down love your SUPERCHOC and after reading your bio about your company and such, love your intuition and your brightness. Your Magnificent! I am going to be spreading the word out here about gnosis and know the nurses I work with will love to get some. Thank you for sharing on the bus. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Love, Light, and Peace, Cheryl Holt (Cilantro Cacao)
Dear Vanessa,the chocolate I bought from you was a birthday gift for a friend. She tells me they are wonderful, I just wish I could have been there to share them with her! I'm hoping to be in the US next year and will seek out your chocolate to try myself. Great idea, great site, all best wishes for the future.John
I was at Raw Spirit Fest and your Simplicity bar is, so far, the best chocolate bar I've had!! Too bad no stores in Chicago carry you!! There are great raw restaurants/stores here. Karyn's and Cousin's to name a few,maybe one day...
Hello Vanessa,Thank you for bringing my taste buds to life. It feels as though I've died and went to heaven on earth. From one chocolate lover to another your bars are out of this world. Even my three year old triplets a.k.a. The three chocolatiers go crazy for them. Thanks again for your commitment and creativity.Friends in South Jersey,Michele and Gang
Links at this site are so good!thank you!
Wow ! Thanks and praise to Vanessa and her entire crew of helpers for making THE most delicious chocolates hands down. I am a huge chocoholic, especially for dark chocolate.
The first thing I noticed was a little tingle sensation all over my tongue, as if my taste buds had come alive truly for the first time in my life! Even just the slivers had me so soul deep satisfied I could resist devouring the entire bar in search of "contentment". Bliss in a bite, truly. I look forward to buying more of your delicious chocolates, on your website as well as locally up at The Heritage House whenever I make my way from Suffolk to Virginia Beach. :)
(Must keep a supply on hand after all!) My 7yr old daughter is also a good chocolate eater so I feel great giving her a treat that is actually tasty and healthy for a change! *she prefers the Simplistic bar btw*
Look for another order from me very soon. Oh and yes, everything arrived just fine, even the little ice pack was still quite chilled. Talk about impressed! I spread the word to anyone who'll listen to me rave about this amazing, delicious, so good FOR you chocolate. I wish you all the success you deserve, and more.
Sincerely, Tonya Hall, avid raw chocoholic consumer
Dear Vanessa,The order came a short while ago and I want you to know that it got here in good shape. The ice packets were melted but the chocolate was not. Thank you so much for the Acai Bars that you complimented me with because of the delay in my order. I decided to try one of them first. I was greatly impressed with the taste and am focusing my mind on the fact that they are doing their duty of anti-oxidizing my body at the same time as indulging in sweets. Wish I could sample them all but I would rather not go over board. Thank you again for your kindness in resending them and I hope that wherever the other box went, they will like them so much they will place an order with you. You may never know, but that is one positive note about a lost package. I will try the greens tomorrow since I already have taken my portion for today from what I already have here. May the Lord bless you in your business and work with great prosperity. I know others will be blessed because of your charming attitude on the phone with me. I'm sure you will here from me again!
I gotta add my praise: I've only tried the Simplicity bar so far, but if this is the basic, I can't wait to try the other variations! Thank you so much for creating such a delicious and conscientious treat.
Your chocolate is indeed off the charts. Just one bite and I was instantly transported to paradise! Cherubic sweetness, sensual aroma, luscious taste, pure bliss, it is all one's buds can ever desire!
I can't wait to try some of your chocolate! Your dad is so happy, he had us all wave in your general direction and say 'Congratulations' at the Omaha Conservatory of Music Institute '08!
WOW!!! Gnosis chocolate is AMAZING!!
I recently purchased 4 bars of your chocolate! I can't decide which one is my favorite since they were all wonderful! My husband loves them as well!
I am a licensed professional counselor in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I saw the review of Gnosis in Spirituality and Health magazine. Since then, I have recommended your products to many of my clients who are seeking healthy alternatives to their nutritional lifestyles. Your chocolates are of the highest quality and taste! My husband and I have traveled extensively in Europe and we agree that your chocolate is the best we have ever tasted!!
Please continue to keep up the great work!Thank you so much!
