It's been 3weeks since I had cornstarch and yes I have been craving but I'm on iron pills so the cravings aren't that strong.I must say I have never swallowed cornstarch I know some still goes down but I always rinse my mouth really and and then brush my teeth. When you eat your cornstarch MzLibra do you wet and let it dry so that it's nice and crunchy it's the best.

Enjoy! Let us know what kind you get (and don't forget to give us your review of the different kinds lol!)

I'm sitting having some Argo from the box. I've had the same box for weeks, but I feel that if I'm not careful I could slip back into my old addiction for it.

Oh, what you do love best - cornstarch or white dirt?

Hi SS, i get mine from Kempton Park. sometimes they dont have the best sometimes they do. you find that it has some dark things in it-so what i do is melt it in water and remove all the funny things totally then i cook it. it takes me an hour to prepare my clay. where do you get the Bloem one from. Would like to try it.

You are so lucky, to be able to just go to one place and buy a choice of clay.

Can you tell us what your favorite is like, the one in Bloemfontein?

Hi, I have a question and I mean it in the nicest way I know how to ask I've read through this forum and I've notice where people say they eat clay, cornstarch, dirt all day some eating as much as 2-3 boxes of cornstarch a day and I myself am a cornstarch eater( on break from it now week 3) but I would have like a couple of spoonfulls maybe 3 times out of the week I guess my question is how do you find the time to do this all day long and I am not in any way judging anyone cause I am addict to cornstarch.

Wow, u sound like me....I've tried all of them except best choice brand(where do u get that from). Hodgkin's mill is very good as well. Well allthings clay I can't say which one I enjoy the best because both of them satisfy my pica...the white dirt and cornstarch are wonderful. I haven't put cocoa powder in my cornstarch. I eat cornstarch before I go to work, sometimes I pack some in a plastic bag and eat it on my lunch break. Bcuz my family is aware of my pica I sit and watch tv and eat my cornstarch...after dinner I will so anytime.....if I may ask "have pica" where do you live?
