PMS Bites | Take the bite out of PMS

$8,439

We have all been there: boobs swell, stomach bloats, feelings hurt, friends and significant others become annoying, work becomes overwhelming, and the only relief seems to be a pound of chocolate and a good cry.

Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a real problem—and it bites. Eighty to ninety percent of women suffer from PMS, and thirty to forty percent find symptoms debilitating enough to interfere with their everyday lives.

Symptoms of PMS increase stress and physical discomfort. We grab for comfort food, especially sweets, to cope. Food high in sugar and carbohydrates cause a spike in blood sugar and adrenaline levels which then interfere with hormone balance. The result: more stress, pain, and irritability—it’s a vicious cycle.

Controlling stress, exercising, and eating and sleeping well can make a huge difference in how much you suffer from PMS. Yet food cravings will still hit. Being prepared with an enticing and healthy option is one way of minimizing the effects of PMS on your life.

PMS Bites—a healthy alternative for monthly cravings

Rich, chocolaty, and decadent, these bite-sized treats are perfect for health conscious women who want to satisfy their cravings, but are unwilling to sacrifice nutrition. PMS Bites are comfort without the guilt.

All bites contain ingredients that are gluten-free, all-natural, and vegan. The bites also contain: dandelion root, Siberian ginseng, and chamomile*

*Studies have shown these ingredients may be good for: bloating, every day stress, and irritability.

Plain Crazy—A classic bite crafted with premium fair-trade cocoa powder and hearty oats. This chocolaty and rich bite is the perfect hybrid between a chocolate truffle and brownie batter. Plain Crazy bite is finished with a light coating of cocoa powder and coconut palm sugar.

 Coco-Nutty—Classic bite generously sprinkled with fluffy coconut.

All Kinds of Nuts—Classic bite rolled in clusters of crunchy pecans.

 Tania's Story

One New Year's Eve, I set a resolution: record how each of my days went for three years. It was a simple exercise to help me be more mindful, present, and reflective, and it led me to my passion.

My eyes were opened to a consistent trend in my life; most of my bad days were around my PMS time.

When I realized that up to 122 days out of my year might be bad, I went to work. I started looking for solutions that would turn my bad days into good. And after a lot of experimenting in the kitchen, I created PMS Bites. I am passionate about helping women optimize their time and their potential.

Risks and challenges

PMS Bites is a budding business in the very early stages of starting up. All startups come with risk. I have made sure to do my very best to prevent any possible problems or risks with the fulfillment. I am confident I can provide you with your bites in a timely manner:

-I have perfected the recipe and many willing taste testers have approved.
-I have suppliers for all of ingredients and packaging materials.
-The timeline I created is based on available kitchen space at Kitchen Inc. in Somerville, MA.

I promise to consistently update you on the process. I am committed to running a completely transparent Kickstarter campaign.
