Hello Anisah, I understand what you're saying.

The problem for some of us though (myself included) is the grip that clay/clay like things has over us.

If I could be satisfied with having it now and then I would be happy. The cravings/obsession gets too much sometimes, like right now for me because I don't have any clay, don't have access to any and feel in a bad way because of it.

Do you eat much yourself? Do you consider yourself to be addicted, or is it just a pleasure you have now and then?

I love eating clay and love the smell of the earth when it rains. I have been eating clay for over twenty years and do not think I will ever stop. Life is too short to deny oneself little pleasures that does not harm anyone. I am simply a clay and earth lover - mother nature is sweet and wonderful.
what kind of clay do you eat? do you have any side effects?

I have put some chalks on ebay but only one kind (wilko white chalks, 10 sticks in each pack). I apparently need more points to sell more items, so it's going to take a while to have all my different items up for sale. They also say it takes a few hours to show.
I also managed to put two chalk items on amazon:a green pack of white anti-dust chalks and box of 100 sticks of giotto. here are the links if anyone is interested. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B001...

I will now list all that I have:
DE over 10kg so I can provide bags of 100g - 1kg
Kaolin powder over 5kg, bags of 100g - 1kg
Calcium carbonate powder over 3kg, bags of 100g-1kg
Bentonite clay powder over 1kg, bags of 100g-1kg
Fullers Earth 100g, 25g-50g bags
Red clay 100g, 25-50g bags
yellow clay, 100g, 25-50 bags
ball clay, just under 1kg, 100g +
German chalks (all white)in packs of 12 brands include: lyra, plelican, staedtler, three stars (many varieties of these in hard and soft), milan, atal, herlitz, giotto
Stadium chalks all white(UK made)in packs of 5
Wilko chalks (all white) in packs of 10
Crayola chalks (all white) Anti dust and normal softer types and one pack of the special AN-DU-SEPTIC 1988 old style
Larger packs of German and UK stadium chalks of 100+ sticks
Kuzu chunks (only small amount)
Roseart chalks 99 sticks in box of 100
Stephens box of 144 chalk sticks
Mungyo box of 99 sticks hard chalks
Eagle white chalks in box very soft
alpha white chalk old and heavy like old crayola.
I know - I collected a whole lot of chalks and clay on my search to find the best earthy taste.
Again, just email if you have any questions or would like some and I'll inform you of the costs.
Thanks for reading
I apologies to those who are trying to stop and have seen this and are offended, as this is certainly not my intention. I just have so much chalks and clays, so if someone wants any then I'm offering a means to get some.
God bless

Another 20 dollars and you could have bought a case from down home Georgia . That is why I miss mutt and Jeff 10 lbs for 20 includes shipping and handling. Clay is so expensive. I think they make money from the shipping and handling.

Hi again, I like the German chalks the best - they don't taste chemically and they crumble nice in the mouth.

Anymore questions, feel free to ask on here or you could always email me on disham68@yahoo.co.uk

Hi corn starch eater, I would say the German chalks are the best out of the chalks. But it depends on what kind of chalk texture you like. I like soft crumbly chalks - but not too soft. Some people like the really hard heavy chalks like crayola - some of the German chalks I have are hard too. Out of the clays, I like kaolin and for others I like DE -as it isn't classed as a clay.

That is good . No cornstarch . I hope you do not like clay too much. It has been about four months now since I have not partake of the oh so good clay. I do think about it though. I think some one cornstarch eater had placed a link on the site. I have to admit it is rough. I enjoy eating clay. I am not anemic. When I started I was.

Before when I was ordering from Sam it was every other month.....then I got a taste of cornstarch and stopped ordering. I want to know if I still have the desire to eat clay. I must bcuz when I look online my mouth waters. I'm anticipating the taste or to hold the smooth clay in my hand.

I spoke with sam yesterday bcuz I didn't get my tracking number. He said he ran out but picked up some more and my order will ship today. His wife answered the phone and said hi would u like to order some dirt. I have to wait a little longer but at least I know its coming. I was in store yesterday picked up some cornstarch put it in my basket but when I got in line I took it out. I wanted it but I knew I was trying to stop. Day #5 no cornstarch!
