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 Use

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 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.
