woohoo! I recently did a chocolate 'exchange' with the fabulous Gnosis chocolate company in USA. I have been admiring the website for ages, lusting after all thier genius flavour combinations and awesome packaging. They sent me a selection- all of which were great., particuarly thier "Originib" bars.

I just recieved a wonderful email from them, giving me feedback. The only bit that is dissapointing is the Rose chocolate feedback- I think the coconut oil may have gone bad in the heat, whilst in transit :-(

Hi Laura,

We were all very excited to receive your chocolates today!!

First off, we were all very impressed when we opened the boxes to see that the chocolates arrived beautifully intact!  In extremely hot weather, we typically include insulation for fear that our chocolate will melt, and with the heat we've been having this week, we were very happy to see the hearts unmelted.  Vanessa also loves your packaging!

The first ones we opened were the Mint and Raspberry ones.  They are gorgeous!  We work with natural colors, so we know how hard it is to blend cacao butter with powders, but yours look perfect.  I liked these two a lot; there was a nice sweetness to balance out the butter, and I thought they really complemented the chocolate.  The other chocolates were very nice, too.  The sour cherry (which was very sour) balanced nicely with the chocolate.  The smokey flavor was a bit intense, but enjoyable and unique in chocolate.  One of our Team members, Siobhan, LOVED the chai orange one!! 

The only one we did not enjoy was the rose one.  There was a funky, almost fishy flavor to it.  We are wondering if maybe one of your ingredients has gone bad. 

Thank you again so much!!  This was a lot of fun to "trade" chocolates.  Keep up the good work! :o)
