We all feel it at least once a month - the painful cramps, the moodiest of moods, but strongest of all, the insatiable craving for kilos upon kilos of chocolate.
But often when we do crack into a block of that oh so creamy choc, the result is not a cure for period pain but even more irritability, self-loathing and bloating.
But alas ladies, that is all about to change.
Swiss chocolate brand, Chocolate With Love, claims to have made a magical block that relieves your ungodly period cramps. The secret?

One other slight issue is that the brand has started a crowd-funding campaign to get the chocolate to supermarket shelves with less than $2,000 of their $18,600 target raised so far.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that they get the funds together and start shipping to Australia within the next 28 days…
