This Bakery Wants to Soothe Your Period Cramps with Brownies

Between the bloating, the mood swings and the cramps (ugh, the cramps), your monthly period isn’t exactly something to look forward to.

But now, one Washington-based bakery is aiming to make that special time of the month just a little bit sweeter. Introducing Moon Cycle Bakery, the subscription treat shop that’s “helping women to redefine their time of the month” with delicious sounding (and apparently period pain-reducing) baked goods.

Here’s how it works: Once a month, the bakery will deliver “hormone balancing, nutrient-dense sweet treats” to your door. Goodies include matcha coconut bites that are high in fiber and omega-3 fats (which the bakers say help relieve cramping) and chocolate cups made with magnesium-rich cacao to help relax muscles.

The customizable delivery service ranges from $5 to $25 a month, and also helps subscribers track their periods with an app so that they can pre-order delicious goodies to arrive right when they need them.

So, baked goods created with your menstrual cycle in mind—a load of hooey or totally genius? Well, there is some evidence that certain ingredients called adaptogens can balance your hormones, so it’s not as out-there as you may think. But more importantly, we love brownies. And if someone wants to deliver them straight to our door in an attempt to ease some of the not-so-pleasant side effects of being a lady, then we’re all for it. Now if you’ll excuse us, it’s time to binge Netflix, curl up with a blanket and enjoy some chocolate deliciousness.

Here’s What to Eat the Next Time You’re on Your Period and Hating Life
