Why Chica Chocolate?

Before Elise and I started Chica, I struggled with intense cramping, mood swings, and heavy bleeding every month. As the daughter of an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, I understood that my period was a fifth vital sign–and that any symptoms indicated a deeper hormonal imbalance–but I didn’t know how to fix it. Conventional birth control or painkillers never felt like an option to manage my period, but the Chinese remedies I was raised on felt nearly as intimidating: the herbs my dad recommended had to be brewed in a tea every day, and the flavor was strong and bitter.

Chica is the perfect period solution for me: I know exactly how it is working for my body, and it gives me the perfect excuse to eat chocolate every month. I hope you look forward to eating your Chica as much as I do!

How To Enjoy

What’s the Chica magic formula? Two Chica truffles a day, for six days in a row, beginning 7-10 days before your period is expected to begin. Best results show after enjoying Chica for three cycles in a row. Give your body time to shift, and enjoy delicious chocolate in the meantime.

    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!

    I accidentally ordered the wrong chocolates … these wonderful generous girls, sent my right ones without charging me … and let me keep the other ones, which I passed on to my daughter to try (and she loves them too). Thank you soo much xo.

    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!

    Chica is incredible! My periods used to be very painful and debilitating. With Chica, they’re virtually painless, shorter, lighter, and no longer something I dread every month. I’m forever grateful <3

    I love these chocolates. I initially started taking the chica chill for night sweats and anxiety and then switched over to these to help with my hormonal balance. It kind of worked like magic. I’m not sure how, but so many of my issues resolved with my period once I started using Chica.

    My first period with chica was the first time i haven’t needed pain meds to get through my period, ever! I have been getting my period symptoms under control progressively over the past 6 months but this took it to a whole new level!

    I had less spotting before and after, indicating that the shedding of my uterine lining was complete and not difficult for my body. 👏👏👏

    If you are anything like me who is crippled by thier period do yourself a favor and get you sum! It only took a few days of eat this stuff before my period hit and let me tell you what a change I felt. Less bloating, less cramping. I feel more balanced eating this chocolate than I ever did taking BC or OTC meds that only serve to rip open my stomach lining. You’ll never get me to remember to take BC everyday but this I can do!
