Why Chica?

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.

    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!

    These chocolates changed my life. I have had debilitating period pain for the past decade, ever since I started menstruating; every month I’d be cramping to the point of missing school or work and I was absolutely miserable. I heard about Chica and figured it was worth a shot and had to be better than going through boxes of Midol.
    My first shipment came melted but I was immediately shipped a replacement (amazing customer service, simply wonderful) which thankfully arrived just in time for me to begin taking the chocolate before my cycle.
    For the first time in my life I didn’t know my period was coming for hours before it actually came – because I wasn’t in pain. This has been the most pleasant, pain free, nearly symptom free, period that I have had in my lifetime. I didn’t know a period could feel like this, and this was after only one round of chocolates. I cannot wait to see what my periods will be like after a few more months. I am now a lifelong customer and I cannot recommend Chica more highly.

    I love chica and used it for a long time. As someone with highly variable periods, chica helped regulate my period and reduce cramping flare ups. It also reminded me to do more self care every time I used chica! No only do I love these chocolates, I love the values the founders hold at the center of their business.

    I don’t know what’s better for me, the helpful herbs or the delicious chocolate! Luckily, I don’t have to choose.
