In fall days, trees become torches, illuminating our way from summer to Halloween, then on to Thanksgiving and New Year's. The way is a magic one; leaves become flowers, and gourds, apples, corn, berries, nuts, and vines heavy with fruit fill the landscape. This fall, the rich autumn landscape is blessed with new riches that invite you to pause on the magic path through October and November, and into winter. Gnosis Chocolate’s Pumpkin Spice Truffle has bloomed and ripened, and is ready for you to harvest and enjoy.
Like bees extracting nectar from late-blooming flowers, Gnosis draws seeds from autumn’s pumpkin essence, and whips these mini kegs of energy and such immune boosters as zinc, magnesium, and iron, into a creamy, nutty butter. Combining the butter with its uniquely delicious, nutritious chocolate, Gnosis then adds potent maca root, effervescent ginger, Siberian ginseng, cinnamon, nutmeg, Cordyeps mushroom, and vanilla beans.
These raw vegan kosher truffles are hand-filled with a smooth stone-ground pumpkin creme, spiced with warming cardamom & ginger, and infused with superfoods & medicinal herbs for endurance.
Each jem is packaged with love in a post-consumer recycled, veggie ink printed box with a beautiful gift tag and satin ribbon.

Pumpkin Seeds - Stone Ground by Team Gnosis! Pumpkins, and their seeds, were a celebrated food of the Native American Indians who treasured them both for their dietary and medicinal properties. Pumpkin seeds are a wonderful source of minerals, protein, monounsaturated fat, and phytosterols. Phytosterols are compounds found in plants which, when present in the diet in sufficient amounts, are believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response and decrease risk of certain cancers. In addition to maintaining prostate health, another benefit of this zinc-rich food is that they aid in bone mineral density. The healing properties of pumpkin seeds have also been recently investigated with respect to arthritis.
Cardamom - According to the traditional medicine of India - Ayurveda - Cardamom is an effective digestive aid, stimulant, and detoxifying herb. It improves cirrculation to the lungs and thus, may help those suffering from asthma or other ailments of the lungs and respiratory system. Cardamom relieves adidity in the stomach, nausea, and gas. It is known to be "tridoshic" - meaning that it helps to balance kapha, pitta, and vata - the three defining characteristics of physiology in Ayurveda.
Maca Root - Maca is known from Aztec wisdom to improve sexual performance, increase libido, treat infertility, and relieve menopausal symptoms. While it may increase energy, it also has the effect of reducing anxiety and stress. A nutritional wonder, a single maca root contains nearly 60 phytonutrients and is an awesome source of digestible protein. One more awesome thing, Maca powder gives skin a more youthful appearance.
Siberian Ginseng - Ginseng is possibly the world's most renowned herb for energy, stamina, and physical endurance, memory, mental acuity, and - being an adaptogenic herb - it helps with adaptation to stress by supporting the adrenal glands. Ginseng has also shown to improve the use of oxygen by the exercising muscle, so you can maintain aerobic exercise for longer, with shorter recovery time.
Cordyceps - Cordyceps is found in the highlands of China, Tibet, and Nepal. In traditional Chinese Medicine, Cordyceps is considered to benefit the lung and kidney channels. It is commonly used with the elderly in China as a type of "super ginseng" for rejuvenation and stamina. Because Cordyseps helps increase stamina, energy levels, and endurance, it has become one of the top selling sports supplements amongst the worlds' elite competitive athletes.
Ginger - Ginger has a long tradition of being a strong digestive aid, source of antioxidants, and anti-inflammation herb. Gingerols are potent anti-inflammatory compounds which, when consumed regularly, have shown to alleviate symptoms of arthritis. Ginger warms the body and therefore helps raise body temperature, warding off sickness. Chocolate Girl recommends taking ginger (a shot of juice or strong tea made from fresh ginger root) at the first sign of "flu/cold/sore throat" or upset tummy.
