I have ordered from Leslie and hoping that comes soon. I really enjoy Ghana clay, but only when it is fresh. The darker it is in color usually means that it is old.

Setting hear reading all the post crunching on ice! Anxiously awaiting the arrival of my order from Leslie! But the craving is 100 right now I think I'll have to do the cornstarch for a day or 2! Or take a iron supplement until my package arrive!

I love my ice. Bought me a snow cone machine from Wal-Mart a few years ago so I can have some finely ground snow. Sonic and Quick trip were tired of me :).

Ghana clay is really nice. But when it looks darker it doesn't necessarily mean it is old. Aside from the earthy flavor, some people like a smoky flavor to it. So after the clay has been moulded into the egg shape, it is roasted over the fire. If it is roasted for a very long time the colour of the clay becomes dark. Some people like it to be roasted lightly and others like it to be fully roasted, almost burnt and very brittle when you taste it. In the markets in Ghana there are all the varieties and you buy your preferred choice. I love it fresh; it tastes natural then.

Hi Swabbi Thanks!! I am going to try that. I think it won't work because the clay is so hard. It like it is over baked going into a different phase. BY the way how was that Mississippi clay you got from your cousin the other day?
oh that clay is so good. bring back child memories. Its real sour which I like. I am trying to take my time eating that because that mississippi clay is hard to come by. so I take small bites of that once in awhile as a special treat. that was the best christmas gift I ever gotton.LOL

Girl stop!! you are cracking me up lol.

The dirt for me taste clean and crisp as does the ice. I call it the search for the taste of ozone, like how the in the window air conditioners smell. When I was a kid I loved that smell and wanted to taste it, thats my ice.

Morning everyone!!!! This forum is so fun to read. All years of having pica, I thought I was alone until I began reading this forum. Chalk was my first experience with pica. I used to go to every store I could find that sold crayola anti- dust chalk. Then I went to Johnson & Johnson baby powder. I loved that baby powder. Then I went to great value brand by Walmart. I was researching online and came across white dirt. I wondered if it taste like chalk. My first bite of white dirt was the best I have ever tasted in my life!!!!! One day at the grocery store on the bake goods aisle I picked up baking powder and cornstarch. Yuck to the baking powder but the cornstarch gave me the same feeling like the white dirt. Awesome!!!!!!!!! Even though I don't eat as much cornstarch as I use too, I can't give it up totally. I know my dirt ain't going no where either....Pica got me so GONE!!!!!!!!!! Lol!!!!!!!!!!

Lol my ex boyfriends mom introduced me to clay dirt. Then I did not eat it for years then I started eating cornstarch . It was sooooo good! Leslie's dirt is really good. So clean! I used to like alot of cornstarch in my mouth at one time. That crunch and smooth feel in the mouth.

I've been hearing great things about Leslie's dirt. Time got away from me & I didn't place my order. But, I will be. I know what you mean about the cornstarch...I use a tablespoon!!!!! Now that I've found a store that sells Argo in the box & not the plastic container.....cornstarch bliss!!!! My next box I'm going to take it out of that white paper it comes in and pour it directly into the box. I'm wondering if it will get drier bcuz it's in the cardboard container. I was also thinking about putting the box in the sun w/ the top cut off...how did u eat your cornstarch? I found out there's a lot of people on twitter that eat cornstarch.

Having pica is very high risk when you sit back and think about how can I fill my bag with dirt at the construction site without getting caught in the act!! I'm so thankful for this forum knowing I can get my dirt the legit Way!!! Shout out to all you clay lovers you saved me!!!
