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 : )

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!

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.

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

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!

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.
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.

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.

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!

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!
May 8, 2008 |Mara
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
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.

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.

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,

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
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.

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.
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,
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

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.

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!

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.

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.
