Chica Chocolate Reviews

5/5

I honestly have no way to review this product because I haven't tried it, but... The day I was supposed to start, I opened the box and saw the "open immediately, perishable" sticker. I felt so silly, but I assumed chocolate wouldn't be perishable, but there's no emulsifier in these. This was my oversight, but I reached out immediately to see if the product might still be viable and how I could remedy the situation. Elise reached out to me and explained that the product is probably spoiled, but would send a replacement. I know I could have easily been asked to pay shipping and that would have been completely understandable, but she's taking care of me and that feels good. I hope the product works as well as their customer care. TBC

I have been using Chica about 8 months. I discovered them through Rasa coffee alternative, also awesome! Each month my period and PMS symptoms have improved. My moods the week before my period used to make me feel out of control. I also don't have intense cramping anymore. I usually can go without any pain meds. I tried this with an open mind and I've been really impressed! I have been sharing Chica with my friends in hopes they have easier periods too ❤️

The rooty flavor took a little getting used to, but I can hardly tell anymore. I've been eating one a day for a week, and started 2 a day today. I've noticed that my breasts are not sore, and my mood is stabilizing some. I'm hoping next month my mood instabilities will be much improved!!

This chocolate is delicious! At first I didn’t think it was working for me but I was so desperate for relief without taking 8 Tylenol in a day that I kept enjoying the chocolates. By month 4 wow what a difference, I made it through my cycle without any pain medicine! I was still in some pain but it was tolerable. I’m so happy and definitely will continue to enjoy every month!

I love them! They are not to sweet but I have a lovely herby/earthy taste. I have been only using them for one month so can't really note on their effectiveness but I look forward to many more boxes to accompany my period.

It will take awhile for the effects to kick in, but so far it was very nice to have something to look forward to during pre-period week - especially chocolate justified as medicine!

Chica chocolate has completely changed my period! After only two months cramping has significantly decreased, my period itself lighter, and my breakouts less intense. Thank you Chica! I can't believe it took me so long to find you. I hope to never menstruate again without Chica!

FAQ

for the readers
Why Chocolate?

Ever heard the stereotype about people craving chocolate when they’re on their period? Well, there is a reason for that. First, chocolate literally makes you happy (endorphins, get at me!) second, the high magnesium content in dark chocolate does all kinds of good things for your body, including easing PMS symptoms in many people and increasing energy.*

We believe that eating delicious, sustainably sourced organic chocolate is simply a great way to improve your day.

When do I eat Chica?

If you are enjoying Chica Chocolate, we recommend opening your bag of twelve Chica truffles 7-10 days before you start your bleeding, and eating two truffles a day for six days in a row.

Using a period app is very helpful for tracking your cycle (we love Clue), and you can set a reminder on your app to let you know when to eat your Chica every month.

What if my period isn't predictable?

If you don’t know when you are going to start bleeding, or don’t bleed at the same time every month, it’s ok!

Do you have any signs that your period is coming? This can look like acne, bloating, or mood swings. Start eating Chica when these signs appear.

If you don’t have any signs -Fortunately, nature has a built in cycle that you can follow. You can start eating Chica Chocolate on either the full moon or new moon every month. The herbs in Chica Chocolate will help to regulate your cycle, though this may take longer than two periods with Chica Chocolate to notice.

When will I notice a difference?

Many Chica Chocolate customers see a positive difference in their period by the first month! However, every body is different, and it may take you a few cycles to notice changes. 93% of existing Chica customers experienced a better period after their second month eating Chica.

We recommend you enjoy Chica consistently for at least three periods in a row.

Allow your body time to change, and enjoy delicious chocolate in the meantime.

Can I eat Chica Chocolate if I don't have a period?

We see you, non-bleeders. We know Chica is delicious, and you can’t help yourself. 

What if I am not bleeding due to birth control?

The herbs in Chica will help to nourish and support your underlying menstrual cycle, even while you are using a hormonal birth control that stops your bleeding. Eating Chica while on birth control can help your body to adjust back to its natural cycle more easily if you ever decide to stop using your hormonal birth control. Chica will not impact the effectiveness of your birth control.

What if I am pregnant or nursing?

Chica Chocolate is not recommended for anyone currently pregnant due to the strong warming and blood invigorating herbs in our formula.

Chica Chocolate is safe to eat while nursing if you are having your period again. If your period has not returned on its own, your body does not yet need the herbs.

Please consult a licensed physician or practitioner if you are concerned about Chica’s effect on your health.

Can men eat Chica Chocolate?

Short answer: Yes!

The herbs in Chica Chocolate help release Liver Qi stagnation, which can help relieve frequent frustration and mood swings.*

However, if you are enjoying Chica Chocolate for your own period, we recommend keeping Chica to yourself so that you can enjoy all those period-loving herbs your body craves.

Is Dong Quai bad for Endometriosis?

Dong Quai is one herb in the Chica Chocolate formula that is known to increase blood circulation.

This increase has been considered bad for endometriosis, due to fear that this will cause the endometrial tissue to further spread and become aggravated. However, Dong Quai actually introduces fresh blood to your uterine system, allowing your body to naturally cleanse by removing excess tissue growth, healing tissue damage, and limiting the formation of scar tissue. Encouraging this circulation is considered to be supportive for reducing pain and inflammation for those with endometriosis.*

We have many customers with endometriosis who report a positive experience with Chica Chocolate. However, always listen to your own body, and stop eating Chica Chocolate immediately if you do not like how your body feels.

If you have any hesitations around any of the herbs in Chica, we encourage you to consult with your herbal or medical practitioner.

Is there marijuana in Chica?

Nope. Nada. Zilch.
