Please share your experience with Gnosis!! 

It TRULY means the world to me to know how you're enjoying the products I've handmade with so much love :) THANK YOU!!


vanessa barg

The SuperChoc is the BEST!. All of my favorite delights in one raw chocolate bar...and it's good for me! Thanks again for all of the "love" you put into it. Lots of love, Scott

Hi Vanessa, I love the new website, it really has a nice feel to it. I can't wait until my juicing program is over so I can try some of your bars again. Philip : )

February 26, 2008 |Philip McCluskey

I wanted to let everyone know how much I enjoy this chocolate! It is different from the "regular" chocolate I used to eat, but this is so much better. It tastes fresh and healthy and decadent. I'm excited to know that such yummy treats are actually healthy for me. I'll never go back to that other stuff, there is no need!

March 2, 2008 |Tina Combs

I like chocolate very much and have tried several of your flavors. I find them all to be delicious - but I especially enjoy Super Choc. I have eaten your products in Curacao, The Netherlands, and Italy- a perfect treat anytime, anywhere. Your website looks very professional and I hope to sample more flavors (and of course more of the ones I already know and love) in the future.

I especially like the fruit tree planting facet of your business. The fact of the matter is, these days, conservation is a difficult business. What can we invest in? Yesterday's solutions inadequately cope with today's population (and the mentality of that population), but fruit tree planting is a positive way of reconnecting people with their environment and showing them that in this fashion, their gain is the world's gain and the world's gain is their own as well. The association with a chocolate company is all the more interesting considering the wide range of attitudes, from environmentally taxing to ecofriendly.

Always looking forward to more good news from Gnosis Chocolate!

Chocolate Girl really is onto something. She is like the Ben & Jerry's of raw chocolate bars with her incorporation of the chunks fill-osophy! It's hard to say which I liked most – I loved the honey ginger for its intensity (so did Pete), the peppermint for setting the bar high on true peppermint flavor, and the blue pomegranate for it's nibby texture and tartness. The Orange Blossom is floral; floral candy is something I have infrequently.

March 6, 2008 |Rosie Haas

WE LOVE YOU AND YOUR CHOCOLATE!!!!!! Thanks for making such wonderful food. You are changing the world. Fairfax and Sammons loves you!

March 11, 2008 |Elizabeth Bracken and Jenny Bevan

Hey chocolate girl,
Just a note to let you know how much my friends and I enjoyed your creations ! So thrilled that a portion of the proceeds go to ftpf. It makes the chocolate even more enjoyable. Thank you for all you do!
Angel Blessings,

Chocolate girl, 
Love, love, LOVE the chocolates. I usually travel close to an hour to pick up some of your bars and boy are they worth the ride. Keep up the delicious work.

March 17, 2008 |Gilbert Gil

Honestly, I've tasted different raw chocolate before and so far, yours is the best tasting ever. I will tell all my friends about your wonderful site.
Much success,

March 18, 2008 |Lazarita

Before I knew about Gnosis, my consumption of chocolate bars was about two per year. Let's say now that both joy of chocolate and consumption have increased - significantly! The flavour (excuse my Canadian) is so rich and so lingering and so without the usual sugar-based gotta-have-more reactions. I love it - Vanessa, I hope you're proud of it - and it's a perfect gift, as many of my friends and relatives know.


March 30, 2008 |david

Wonderful Chocolate and Wonderful website.
Thanks Chocolate Girl for healthy chocolate!!

March 30, 2008 |Ann Belcher

That was THE MOST DELICIOUS raw chocolate bar I have ever experienced! And I have tried others.

If you are in need of a sales person at a future trade show here in California, I would be so there spreading enthusiasm, and sharing my truth about how wonderful raw chocolate is!

I'm serious, if you ever need me I would love to be involved in promoting your magic!

In Celebration, Pam

I thought fairies did not exist anymore.But then one day I met Vanessa-she flew around,sang,joked and at the same time whipped the most delisious chocolate I ate in my life.I will never forget my first bite-like the first kiss:first-subtle,then-rich and lifting me off the ground.
I quit my 9-5 job,started helping Vanessa(now I am the Head OOmpa-Loompa).People tell me how good I look:young,full of life,glowing...I know it is Vanessa's magic but I tell everybody it's just chocolate!Please,don't give my secret away,shhhh!

Gnosis Chocolate...The perfect treat after a 4 hour training run!!

April 7, 2008 |Frank Giglio

What an extraordinary contribution Vanessa and Gnosis makes...to so many people, places, and things. The peerless Gnosis chocolate is the most tangible of these miracles.

There is also the inspiring example of a young woman whose passion, vision, willingness to sacrifice, infinite caring for the planet and its denizens, and true grit. Vanessa inspires others to find and to be their very best selves , and this is truly the divine work that bring internal and external peace. How blessed I am she calls me her dad.

Greetings Vanessa,
The bond between Sunfood and Gnosis is clearly meant to be. With all our back and forth about quality and ingreients, we can safely predict the result of introduction of Gnosis to our customers: a new generation of raw chocolate lovers, a new wave of superfood devotees, and a shift in attitudes which will be felt from New York to San Diego and all around the world!
Words do a poor job of expressing our appreciation for the incredible grace and wisdom you have contributed throughout this process. 
The force of superfoods is with you and the Oompa Loompas! Always!
Jay and Andrew

Hello gorgeous,

The world is sweeter and more delicious because of your work, love, creativity and passion. Thank YOU! Fab

May 2, 2008 |Fabiola


Thanks to beautiful people like You and David Wolfe, I can deeply enjoy chocolate the only way it is meant to be: raw, sensual, nutritious, and superlicious! As a former migraine and food allergy sufferer this means even more to me! Saving the rain forest and helping to plant fruit trees at the same time makes Gnosis Chocolate an extra incredible value!

Mara xoxo

It was so nice of you to send me those chocolate bars. They are truly amazing chocolate, so rich and full of energy. Most forms of sugar are not good for me, but when I checked these with a pendulum they tested OK.

I belong to the Park Slope Food Coop and I'm going to suggest your chocolate as a product to carry.

May 12, 2008 |Stephanie Golden

I've started sampling with the Simplicity bar, since I am new to these very real, pure, raw treats. I'll work my way up slowly (since I want to make my seven-bar stash last as long as possible!) to the SuperChoc. I am in love with the beautiful, earthy taste of raw cacao. Thank you so much for making such wonderful goodness available to the world!

An added benefit of purchasing Gnosis is that you're donating 10% of your profits to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. Wow. Beautiful girl, beautiful heart.

May 12, 2008 |Brook St. Clare Harvey

Lovely Vanessa,

I just got my first taste of SuperChoc and it tastes like all of the good in the earth, wrapped up in one little package. My taste buds are tingling, I feel connected and alive, and I swear it just gave me a back rub, too!



May 13, 2008 |Brook St. Clare Harvey

I really wanted to find a good-tasting & raw chocolate so I could enjoy my *addiction* guilt-free, but I figured tasty + healthy weren't likely compatible, esp. as I found more 'natural,' darker chocolates to be bitter. So I ordered your chocolate on a bit of a lark. Wow, was I surprised. I can't get over how sweet and decadent it is. In fact, I think I prefer it to the sugarized, processed milk chocolates. It almost seemed to good to be true. I am just so impressed with your product and happy that in my slow conversion to a raw diet, yummy + healthy treats actually exist. 

May 14, 2008 |Lisa Berzack

I am allergic to chocolate. Or so I thought. But then I discovered Vanessa's chocolate. I can eat it with impunity, and I have no symptoms of allergy at all! I don't know if it's because of the processing or the fact other chocolate isn't organic, or what. And on top of that, Vanessa's chocolate is even more delicious than other chocolate. In fact, after I started eating it, other chocolate doesn't taste good to me anymore!

I have a skin condition I have had for well over a decade. For several years, I have tried to get rid of it. I did a lot of research and tried a lot of things. Some things made it worse. I did find several things that help, but it is very slow, waiting for it to heal. But then I read that chocolate will help improve circulation. Certainly improving circulation through damaged tissue would help it heal. At that point, I was looking for some good chocolate, but the chocolate I found simply tasted too "rich". Once I found Vanessa's chocolate, I knew that I had found the answer. At this point, I asked Vanessa to work with me, and we designed a chocolate that had some of the things I discovered help me, as ingredients. I have been eating a little of this chocolate daily for several months, and probably 10% of the damage has healed. This may not sound like much, but after well over a decade with no significant improvement, this is exciting! It is now part of my program, and I will keep eating this chocolate as long as I can.

Vanessa is good to work with. And the chocolate has another side benefit. It doesn't make me feel like I am getting sugar, because I'm not! Nor does it contain any of the highly damaging artificial sweeteners. This means that it won't aggravate my hereditary tendencies to unbalanced blood sugar. And I have been slowly losing weight. I have lost about an inch of girth. Given that I had been unable to lose any weight at all for well over a decade, that is also very exciting. It is known that chocolate does help people lose weight, but only if it doesn't have the sweeteners that replace the weight that has been lost.

I highly recommend Vanessa's chocolate to anyone, and I also recommend her skills at designing chocolate for therapeutic purposes.

May 22, 2008 |Patricia

Thank you Vanessa for spreading the love with your nutrient dense super food chocolates. The SuperChcoc bar is my personal favorite because it combines some of the highest antioxidant foods in the world mixed with mineral rich roots like maca and ginseng, you simply can not go wrong. The taste is out of this universe. Rich dark chocolate with a subtle sweetness that only lingers after I eat it. I feel more alert and always happy. Less is more, so a piece will keep me going for half the day. The cashew goji cherry bar is my second favorite because it keeps me balanced with the cashews and goji's inside and the texture is just perfect.

Thank you once again for creating such soul satisfying and hand crafted chocolates that are filled with infinite love and abundant health qualities. Every bite is a magical experience.

Peas, carrots and burdock,

May 22, 2008 |Alex Malinsky

Thank you, Vanessa...for making chocolate that a raw fooder can truly fall in love with. I kept thinking that I wouldn't be able to enjoy chocolate again, but you have kept my tastebuds from dying off. I love SuperChoc...it is my absolute favorite. It will definitely be a regular part of my diet from now on. Lots of love to you and the staff at Gnosis!

May 22, 2008 |Scott Roth

Just got back from the UK and couldn't wait to have some more of that yummy Gnosis Chocolate. Needless to say I wasn't disappointed. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

June 2, 2008 |Phllip McCluskey

Aloha Vanessa,

Thank you for creating a masterly superb raw cacao bar with and such a dazzleing selection to boot!

One of my clients who was struggling with her transition to a healthy vegan lifestyle from being a serious sugar/candy addict called me to report that when she tasted your chocolate it renewed her hope and gave her that certain something that was missing from her diet.

She now feels she will surely succeed with this path! When I told her there was more then the one flavor I sent her, she let out a series of extremely loud ecstatic woo hoos!!

June 4, 2008 |Taylor Call, M. Div

beautiful vanessa I don't know what to say the chocolate is wonderful and your picture is wow! Holler at your boy!!!! LOL.

June 6, 2008 |Lucky dyce aka( denis from the juice bar)

I am so impressed by the amount of medicinal herbs and super foods that you use in your product. It is quite evident that you put a lot of thought, love, and positive energy into your chocolate. I really appreciate the time and effort you have put into making an amazing product. Blessings!

June 10, 2008 |Philip McCluskey

It was so wonderful to learn to create my own raw organic chocolates with you, the love you shared makes them the Best. I was thrilled to take home my own specially blended chocolate bar - I could barely wait to get it home and shared it with friends that night! I can't wait to get the other 4 bars, I plan to share them with my clients. Thank you, thank you, thank you, they are soooo delicious and powerful! P.S. the ashwaganda is Really powerful help I may turn into a wild woman

June 10, 2008 |Josie Coyoc

I have to tell you that i bought one of your small chocolates .... the one with the kitchen sink in it! And it was the best EVER! i kid you not, i can't stop thinking about how amazing you are for having put it all together into an amazing taste! i wish that i had bought one for each of my girls, but honestly, i could envision having eaten them on the ride home without even blinking! it's something i would love to be able to teach the girls to make! anyhow, keep me posted and at the least, i'll buy some small delish bars for the girls...god i hope they make it home! now THAT will be willpower!

June 10, 2008 |Kimberly Mahan

I just wanted to thank you you for hosting such a great party last night. A night of sensory overload....The the wine was flowing, the chocolate was out of this world and the energy of everyone there was so vibrant. Would love to learn more and be involved with the wonders of cacao so let me know if you need any help with your Upper West Side festivities.

June 10, 2008 |Jerry S.

Hi Vanessa. I met you a couple of weeks ago outside the Health King, was doing the Cell-nique demo. After that I bought your Orange Blossom chocolate . . . it was deeelicous. Loved it and the aphrodisiac effect was no joke. I tried a piece and wanted to take my clothes off! Left me wanting more . . .

June 10, 2008 |Danielle Giordano

I just ate the almond bar, wow! Well, I had a little here and a little there and just finished the last third. It was a big day so I thought I deserved some chocolate. And it was soooooo good it was hard not to finish it. I will order some from you to give to my clients at the holidays.

You should market that to other Health Counselors. Let me know and I'll chime in on how good it is. My student clients were really thrilled with the truffles I bought from you, and my buddy will definitely order from you for her clients for graduation weekend as well. Kudos to you, your company is really great.

June 10, 2008 |Cheryl Heppard

delicious...I`m at a loss for words...just taste it:)

June 25, 2008 |Stefanie G. 

I just tried Vanessa's chocolate bars for the first time and they are scrumptious! I've eaten a lot of organic dark chocolate bars in my time and I can tell the amazing quality and love that goes into these bars.

Looks like you have a die-hard customer now! I just can't wait to try all the other flavors.

With gratitude,

July 1, 2008 |Gina Rafkind 

I tried the bars for the first time recently and really love them. Other organic chocolate bars don't taste as good.

Also, they really care about getting the bars to customers as I found out after there were several problems in a row that resulted in the worst customer service that I had experienced in online ordering but Vanessa took especial care to rescue the order and shepherd it through the process to get the package shipped.

I will order again...and again.


July 12, 2008 |sandy 

Thank you so very much for your care with this order. I recently read about Gnosis Chocolate in the Spirituality and Health Magazine. You would not believe the rush of excitement I felt while visiting the Gnosis Chocolate website for the first time. I can’t wait to taste each flavor. There are things that bring energy into my life during this deployment to Iraq, faith tells me that your product will be one of those things. Again thank you for what you do. People who do things everyday out of the kindness of their heart for others they may never know motivate me!

Peace be with you & many blessing be upon you,

CPT Kerns

July 13, 2008 |James Kerns

Gnosis chocolate, especially the Superchoc and the Coconut Almond flavors, are a joy to eat due to the high quality, excellent taste, high cacao content, and pureness of the ingredients. Also, the creator of the chocolate is as sweet as the chocolate itself : )

July 14, 2008 |Bobby

...love this product line, live in london would love to find them here. suki suggested i pick up your chocs last time i was in new york, they r so yummie. heading to new york city soon again, so will stop westerly's to stock up.

...merci, gracias! donna

July 23, 2008 |donna chabria

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!

July 28, 2008 |Ellie Neveling, RN, MEd, LPC, Counseling

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!

July 28, 2008 |Carrie Wogaman

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!

July 31, 2008 |Violeta

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.

August 13, 2008 |Luke

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!

August 16, 2008 |Lee Martin

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.

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.

Thank you Vanessa the truffles were so yummy and did they not last long.. I am looking forward to tasting some of your other treats now. I appreciate all you do to be conscious of your footprint and putting in the love for us to be nourished so deliciously.
— John 2/8/18
Hi Vanessa, Enjoyed talking with you this afternoon! Thank you for your help with my order. Since I am a type 1 diabetic; I love your stevia Freedom bar and your other tasty low carb bars. Always been a chocolate lover - inherited the chocolate gene from my mother. Your delicious and healthy products are a daily treat. Warm wishes for the holidays to you and your mother.
— Louisa 11/30/17
I love the way each and every item is made with love and caring. My orders always arrive quickly and are delicious. It is like Christmas when we receive our order. The biggest problem I have with Gnosis Chocolates is that they are gone way to fast. I must learn self control. Please keep doing what you do best: keeping the world filled with chocolate.
— Glenn K. 5/1/17
Silly me, I sent my review to the message tab instead of putting it here. Received my first order last week and I am THRILLED!!!! The attention to detail in the packaging in addition to the scrumptious products will turn me into a regular customer/consumer. Chocolate was the one thing missing from my Paleo world since the people who make stevia sweetened chocolate include sugar alcohols in their product. Now I can indulge in the occasional treat. And what chocolate this is!!! So rich you can’t eat an entire bar - not too sweet but definitely sweet enough - melt in your mouth feel but not the overly creamy coating on your tongue like fine chocolate with dairy included - and the range of flavors is amazing. That they included superfood as well just puts them over the top in my opinion. I’ll definitely be back for more! And a big thank you for the little welcome gifts included in my order, they made me feel very special. It’s very apparent that gnosis is a labor of love.
— Carol Oliver 4/20/17
I have tried your raw pommaçai chocolate, cocoa nibs, and Seaweed Face Elixir Set, and loved all the products! And thanks for resending me a replacement of a melted chocolate. The best customer service. Thank you!!
— M. 3/9/17
Best chocolate by far—I love the fact that fat and sugar content are low—it is difficult to find in an organic raw chocolate bar. Permanent customer has been made!
— A.M. 2/24/17
Wow! -wasn’t expecting more than great chocolate with my order - the body care samples feel and smell so amazing-had to order more right away.
— Diane B 7/10/15
Dear Vanessa
Just want to say that I am truly impressed with your achievements. What an inspiration and I haven’t even tasted the chocolate yet! ;-)
I was hoping to find it here in Amsterdam/Europe, but haven’t succeed so far.
I loved to read about REACH and Granada, and how you simply follow your intuition. How come some people are so much more in tune with there intuition than others?
Anyway, lovely to see what it has brought you, and grateful for the chocolate and other products that it is bringing me and the rest of the chocolate lovers out there. But also for helping change the world into a better place. That’s so beautiful.
Giving is receiving.
So I will be looking forward to have my bite.
Thank you.
Love and Light
— Gunver 10/2/14
Just got my for order and wow wow couldn’t be happier.
THANK YOU for making raw, without sugar, delicious good for the heart and soul chocolate.
— Donna 7/1/14
I went to Integrative Nutrition as well and it makes me so happy to see it has treated you well. I discovered your chocolates on a visit to New York and fell madly in love. I often find it a bit difficult to incorporate all the delicious herbs superfoods into my everyday life, but I alwayd have time for chocolate. Thank you for making this beautiful product I look foward to seeing it in my local health food store :) <3
— Rachel 5/16/14
We received our 2nd order from Vanessa & Gnosis and couldn’t wait till it got here! I’m so grateful that there is somebody who cares about the rest of the world so much to make chocolate with pure and clean ingredients! Coconut sugar rocks! It is the only sugar that my body can tolerate in enjoyable doses. The Freedom bars have been WONDERFUL when going through candida cleansing. They bring such enjoyment to a very restrictive diet! Thank you for your hard work - it is much, much, much, appreciated!!
— Jennifer F. 6/30/14
Vanessa was kind enough to take my order early this week, and guide me on which items should suit me.
I received package next day, and I am happy to report every item was intact and pristine, even in the Palm Springs heat.
Truffles are delicious, I look forward to trying other flavors when available.
The Superchoc bar is excellent, as well as Powerchoc, loved it.
You should be proud.
Thanks again Vanessa, I will happily place orders in the future.
— Chris G. 6/25/14
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.
— Ray 4/22/14
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 :)
— Heidi Hosking 4/17/14
Your chocolate is truly made with love...you can taste it...and that is the single most important ingredient. Thank you for sharing your passion. Truly appreciate it.
— Eric M. 4/6/14
this is fabulous and so ingenious my children love chocolate, I am thrilled to have stumbled across this site, have a most excellent day ;)
— anon 3/2/14
immunity elixir... this stuff is amazing & everyone needs to try it- best thus far. 5 grams of coconut derived sugar, can’t beat it!
— Eileen 2/12/14
Hi Vanessa,
Your chocolate is Amazing- I love it sooo much!!!
It’s the only chocolate that doesn’t give me the jitters.
Thank You for all you do and just for being you !!!!
You’re the Best !
lots of love
— Jessica H. 2/12/14
Just ordered your Passion Collection Truffles... Can’t wait to try these been waiting all year for these to come!
— Mabel 2/1/14
Amazing chocolates! I was pleasantly surprised and placed my second order. Filled with Antioxidants and simply the best. It is worth the splurge!
— Wendy 1/14/14
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.
— Gloria 1/7/14
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.
— Karla 8/27/13
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 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.

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!

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”!

How many different ways can I say, “delicious”. A must try for cashew lovers; chocolate lovers. Healthy ingredients. Guilt free chocolate. Very vivid delicious flavors. All healthy ingredients, no guilt chocolate. Thank you for this creation!

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
