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"!

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

I purchashed one of your chocolate bars last week at Brad Raw Foods open house. As a dark chocolate lover, health fanatic and IIN graduate last month, I just had to let you know that this is the best chocolate I have ever purchased. When I first looked up Gnosis chocolate last September, yes after the IIN conference, I thought the chocolate was rather expensive. However, after tasting your chocolate which I am still rationing today, I have to tell you it is worth every penny. I also love your commitment to the environment and preserving our remaining resources. It is not very often you come across a company with integrity that you can feel comfortable supporting. Good luck and I will be purchasing more of your delicious chocolate soon.

I am a chocoholic, oh yes I am, but how to keep this habit a healthy one? Enter Gnosis
Chocolate—vegan, gluten-free, raw, AND low-glycemic! Even with all this, they
taste delectable! Now these chocolates are sweetened with agave, so I was
delighted to learn they are offering a “sweet choice” of coconut sugar in lieu
of agave: basically the same flavor with two options for sweetener: agave or
coconut sugar. In the name of science—and my excited tastebuds—I decided to
take the challenge of trying BOTH sweet choices! Oh be still, my heart! The
flavors I tried were Gratitude (vanilla hazelnut), Mayan Heat (chili) and Rejuvenate
(pomegranate-acai). I liked the original agave for these, so I wanted to see
how the new kid, coconut, would compare.

The first I tried was the Mayan Heat.
I excitedly tear open the wrapper to get to the chocolate. Xocolat: food for
the gods; with the chili, berries and nuts, it is indeed ambrosia. I break off
a square, touch it, sniff it, eye it, and only then do I pop it into my mouth
to let its flavors roll into my tongue. Chocolate is indeed a multi-sensory
celebration of the senses.

I start with the new coconut sugar option, as
indicated not only by the ingredient list but by the little green coconut trees
on the package. The chocolate snaps crisp, it smells like chili and burnt sugar
and dark velvet night. I pop one in, and the flavors come in real subtly, all
robed in the dark crystal sweetness of the coconut sugar. The chili comes as a
slow burn throughout, punctuated first by the black currants, then the soft
pecans. I would pair this with a dark roast coffee, or a full-bodied red wine.

I then try the agave. Like an old flame, it
still invites me. The chocolate breaks with a sigh, a bit more of a give. It
smells of ritual and dark treacle and tart berries. I taste it, and the flavors
come languidly in but all at once, like a fiery fudge. I taste the pecans, then
the black currants, with the chili enrobing it all. For the agave, I would go
for a medium roast coffee, and a sweet port.

The Mayan Heat is my favorite; however chocolate
is still queen of my heart, and she has other flavors besides. I next try the
Pomegranate-Acai in coconut sugar. Sure enough, it snaps clean. I taste more
tartness, with the sweet burnt sugar somehow reminiscent of the sugarcane
fields I visited in my youth in the Philippines, the tassels waving the summer
breeze. I would love this with maybe a Muscat.

I then try the agave version of the
Pomegranate-Acai. The agave gives its softer texture, more treacly sweetness. I
taste the acai here, but sweeter. I would maybe try a nice prosecco or
champagne with this: bubbles with berries!

Then for a more classic flavor, I try the
Vanilla Hazelnut. As always, I try the new kid on the block first, coconut
sugar. I’m loving that crisp break now as I snap off a square from its partner
inside. The coconut sugar Vanilla Hazelnut is darker, more subtle, and I taste
the hazelnuts prominently. This would be pretty good with a cup of chicory coffee.

However, to compare, I try the agave version,
and this…this reminds me of Ferrero Rocher, a childhood favorite, but now SO
much better, and without dairy, or transfats, or rancid oils, and so much
FRESHER! The agave just brings it all together somehow: the hazelnut, vanilla,
raw chocolate all melt in my mouth with the agave tasting like delicious
almost-can’t-believe-it’s-good-for-me syrup. SO, so good. This would be great with a port....while soaking in a bubble bath. Ah, bliss.

Yes, I love chocolate, and I will be the first
to spout off the improbability of me allergic to it, and instead point to how
healthy it can be! And I am glad I am not the only chocoholic health nut out
there: thank you, Gnosis for fresh, healthy chocolate manna.

I had occasion to try five of your flavors of chocolate. I decided I would savor them by eating only a small piece at a time so I would have them to eat for awhile. Here's what I think about them.

Supercounselor was a gift. Thank you very much! It has Goji berries in it. I am not particularly a fan of candied fruit, so I wasn't real sure about it, but I took a bite, and it didn't seem like candied fruit at all! The berries added a subtle twist that I found quite nice. I don't need to invoke various religions to enjoy this one! I broke my resolve and ate the whole thing in one sitting.

ZeroG Stability is pure chocolate sweetened only with Stevia, so no calories from sugars. It is a little on the bitter side. I like chocolate to be a little bitter, though this was slightly more than my personal taste. Probably because of the Stevia, it left a slightly sweet aftertaste, not bitter.

I think Madagascar was my favorite. It has a slight bite to it from the pepper. Very nice! Just enough to give it interest, but not overpower the other flavors.

I liked the crunchy nibs in Grenada. The nutmeg is also great. I like the fact you put blue-green algae in several of these.

Coco Almond Endurance also has little nutty chunks in it. Almond is nutritious and also good for what ails me. I especially like all the coconut ingredients; in fact, I think I like the coconut palm sugar the best of your sweeteners.

All in all, a command performance. Encore!

Just had to leave a note that I was so surprised and excited to find some gnosis chocolate in my local health food store! I bought a mint bar and a almond coconut bar, and while the mint is good, the almond coconut blew my mind! I absolutely love it and will be going back to stock up. I'm sure I'll end up ordering from here, too, as the selection was limited in store. Gnosis chocolate is the perfect thing for my sweet tooth! Thank you!

Chocolate Girl,as you know I have loved your chocolate for years, but I had to tell you:, My box arrived today, - I went right for the Golden Egg, of course. Wow, I cannot believe the subtlety and depth of flavor your acheived, I will be ordering more soon! A little later, I tried the EnWhitenment Bar. I was literally blown away by the ecstasy of that experience. The end all and be all of raw white chocolate, well, I'm sure you know. I have not tried the others yet but had to write immediately, I was so impressed! Too bad I missed your easter truffles, that made me sad.
And of course, thank you SOOO much for the Aphrodisia Elixir! - You have made me very happy, this is the best-tasting psychoactive cacao drink I have had, maybe ever. I will be drinking it every day.

After having been able to sample them all I can surely say that all of the chocolates were quite lovely, thank you! The egg had a cinnamon/eggnog taste at first, but then I got a sense of the 'peanut butter cup' that it was probably modeled after. The truffles were all quite lovely and fruity, I think, personally, I enjoyed the hibiscus acai the best, there was just something about it....but the vanilla berry was lovely and tart, sort of how I imagine lady fingers to taste like, and the superberry was tangy and fruity. Overall, you have a superb product, and I cannot wait to try more.

I have been waiting for a couple of years for nutritional info on your products.
Do you have them yet?
Thanks..................

April 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline

I received my (large!) order today and it's in perfect condition. I just sampled the "dazzling dark" bar. OMG - It's delicious! I love your products and the fact that I can order online. Thanks for offering a candy that is not only raw but dairy, soy & gluten free AND tastes great! Keep up the good work!

Hi, I found this chocolate at Bee-Organic in Great Neck. WOW! I wish I had had the time to try and visit you at your shop in Queens. Congrats on your products. Proof that one can add good things to this life without doing any harm to the planet or our spirit.

I tip my hat to you. Dave
