Do you leave the bag open or closed? I am going to try it?
Did anyone order from Mutt and Jeff yet?

I take it out the plastic bag put it in the paper bag open so it can dry out for some hours after that you can close it after eating but I leave mine open because the taste gets better :-) I just bought a bag from the corner store it's so good and crunchy!!!

I took the dirt out of the plastic bag , placed it in the paper bag & rolled it down . left it outside sitting directly in the sun for a few hours then brought it back inside & left it closed over night . I actually think the longer you leave the dirt in the paper bag the better it would taste .

I have decided to give up cornstarch.....so today i threw away one whole box and a box that had some left in it. I cant explain why but, I did. So, hopefully I can do it this time. Ive tried every brand of cornstarch I could find. My list total was 8 different brands. I guess Ive just gotten tired of buying it and eating it. Nothing new after the cravings, just the same old powder, the squeak and then the swallow. Its like oh yeah here i go again. It doesnt give me the same feeling anymore. So, goodbye to cornstarch. It was fun while it lasted.......5yrs.

Hi Angela, it's lovely to hear that you've beat the craving - well done!!! I agree that healthy eating can be one of the causes - as most of you already know from my earlier comments on raw food etc. Really nice to hear from you and that you've broke the 'chain'.

God bless

Hi ladies I'm a friend of Mavu and she currently has no internet but she said there has been a delay on her shipment so business is expected to be back to normal from the first of november including those that she owes clay to. She will be back on 31 oct to confirm.
