If you tend to guzzle chocolate and pain killers when you have your period, or any day (no judgment – same) a Swiss chocolatier has created something you might be interested in.
Marc Widmer, of Lucerne-based company Chocolate With Love, claims to have created a chocolate bar that can help to relieve period pain. The “Frauenmond” bar, which translates to “women’s moon” – gross – claims to contain more than 17 different Swiss mountain herbs that can alleviate menstrual pain.
“We want to make the menstruation days of women more comfortable,” Widmer said in an interview with 20 Minuten. He also felt the need to include that “of course men can also eat the chocolate. I myself have already tried [it].” I’m not sure why he would add that. Maybe a man at 20 Minuten tried the Frauenmond bar and was concerned he might spontaneously grow a vagina.
