Ordering

How does it work?

Curate your chocolate kit with any combination of bars you desire. Receive chocolate in as little as 2 days. Order once to get started, or subscribe so chocolate shows up right when and where you need it. As a subscriber, you can change frequency, mix or size any time through your account. Subscription orders require a minimum of just 4 products, and receive discounted pricing.

Can I order a subscription and a single box at the same time?

Absolutely, you can order as many boxes as you like, but due to limitations of our shopping cart, you will have to place a separate order for each box. This also applies to gift orders.

Can I order just one bar?

Yes, there are no minimums. However, due to shipping and packaging costs, orders of less than $40 do not qualify for free shipping.

Can I update my subscription?

Yes, you can update your subscription any time by logging into your account or contacting customerservice@funcho.co.

How is Functional Chocolate shipped? Will it melt?

We offer free shipping on all orders over $40, and flat rate shipping for smaller orders.

During warmer months, we only ship Monday through Wednesday to ensure that your chocolate doesn't spend the weekend in a hot UPS warehouse.

Our distributor has decades of experience shipping chocolate. We utilize a variety of insulation and cooling approaches, dependent on expected weather conditions to ensure your chocolate arrives promptly and without damage. However, we ask that you follow tracking updates to ensure you receive your products promptly and get them into proper storage, especially on warmer days. If for some reason you have an issue with your delivery, please contact our Customer Service team right away at customerservice@funcho.co

Can I order Functional Chocolate as a gift for someone else?

Absolutely, you can order either an individual box or an ongoing subscription for a friend or loved one. Simply build your box, then upon check out, enter the recipient's shipping info and your billing info. There is an option to select 'Is this order a Gift?' which will ensure our fulfillment team does not include a receipt with the price of the box on it.

 

Using Functional Chocolate

How much should I eat?

A single serving of Functional Chocolate is considered 2 squares, however, since our products are 100% natural and plant-based, it is completely safe to eat a full bar or more in a single day if you want to indulge. Each bar is labeled with usage instructions as well as a recommended maximum daily intake.

Each individual reacts to different ingredients differently, so relief from symptoms may occur spontaneously for some, while certain ingredients may require several doses before full effects are realized in others.

What will I “feel” when I eat Functional Chocolate?

Functional Chocolate bars are not psychedelic and will not lead to any feelings of inebriation. However, each individual reacts differently, and feelings of relaxation, loss of inhibition and relief from symptoms may occur spontaneously. Certain ingredients may require several doses before full effects are realized.

Are Functional Chocolates safe for everyone to eat? What about children?

Absolutely. While our original formulations were designed to target common everyday conditions primarily for women, all ingredients are safe for men, women and children over the age of 12. We are excited to continue to expand the availability of offerings for everyone.

How should I store Functional Chocolate?

Just like all chocolate products, Functional Chocolate should be stored in a cool, dry, dark place, away from strong odors which can permeate the delicate chocolate flavor. Dark Chocolate can also be placed in the refrigerator or freezer for longer term storage. Dark Chocolate is shelf stable for up to 2 years. Once opened, storing in a sealed container will maximize the shelf life and taste of your chocolate.

Can I cook with Functional Chocolate?

While technically you could cook with Functional Chocolate if you really wanted to, heating the active ingredients and botanicals can reduce their efficacy, so we  do not recommend cooking with Functional Chocolate. However, Functional Chocolate pairs well with many snacks and beverages.

Can I use Functional Chocolate while nursing or pregnant?

All of our products were designed and formulated with safety and efficacy in mind. We chose time-tested traditional herbal ingredients meant to optimize health for individuals of all ages, including pregnant and lactating women. When used as directed, we believe these products to be safe during pregnancy based on available data as well as decades (and sometimes centuries) of recorded use. Since scientific studies on the safety of herbal medicine during pregnancy is sparse, we encourage every woman to review all functional foods and supplements they are using with their health care provider.
