powdered clay in the u.s...alligatorclay.com
kaolin chunk clay in the u.s ...whitedirt.com
delicious earthy chalks in white..creativity street chalks...alpha chalk. they also sell triple sized chalk (not sidewalk chalk). another cheap and easy alternative to kaolin is tailors chalk...it's basically compressed clay patties. no mess..no fuss. just pop em in your mouth n go! I'm 33 yrs old and have been on this pica train since I was 16. I've tried and done it all. I can probably tell u any and everything there's to know abt chalk and clay. ive eaten every kind of chalk imaginable. all kinds of brands too. the key is drinking a sufficient amt of water. never had any side effects IR issues. not one. I'm open to inquiries. I'm in southeastern usa. [email protected]

sparco is another decent chalk..comes in white and yellow..it's very crunchy. I've eaten everything from cat litter ( pure clay) to kaolin baby powder to pool cue chalk to gym chalk and everything in between. I have made my own pica treats also using bulk clays and chalks. u learn to get creative. there's a chalk called hagoromo full touch chalk that seems like a chalk lover's dream but it's only available in Japan right now. I NEED to try this chalk. I'm into the heavy extruded chalks only. there's not much I haven't tried.

Hi everyone. I have some VERY exciting news!!!!!My shipment of BULK clay is coming from Zimbabwe on 15th NOVEMBER 2011!! If you don't know, Zimbabwe IS the place where the best clay come from. If you are looking for the 'smell before it rains' in your clay its from there.

Finally ALL my UK people can order clay from me. I'm just adding the finishing touches to the website and payments can be made securely through paypal. I can't wait for all of you to try some. Who knows i'll be doing some discount for all my topix ladies (and gents if you're out there!)

So, all you have to do if you are interested is e-mail [email protected] and i'll link you to the website the second it's live and orders can be made ASAP!

Also, just to let you know..you'll be buying from a clayeater herself (20years to be exact) so I can relate with all your clay needs.

Hope to speak to you soon!!!

I LOVE DRY CLAY! I used to eat it all the time, but I stopped cos I thought it may be harming me. I love to chew it though.

What's the crunchiest chalk? I really love the crunch of chalk. Unfortunately I can only get Sargent Art Chalk and Crayola Chalk (not dustless).

This red desert clay is actually clay mined from CALIFORNIA in the USA! Why not just take pictures of your own clay and post them??
Hi alternativeal,

My mistake! I found the image on google and its use was only temporary to begin with as my images are getting uploaded this weekend anyway. It was the closest image I could find that represented the ZIMBABWEAN clay that I am selling.

Finally!
So happy to receive my order today MavuSeller! I ordered the baked clay and I had previously become accustomed to the clay that can be bought in Kenya by getting my friends to bring some over. However, often I found that some of the clay was too hard and as a result was wearing down my teeth. When I tried this clay though it was just the right amount of crunch and I definitely appreciate the gift, very useful!
Will definitely be ordering again! Good value for money

Well just for the record, both those sellers are actually selling the California Earth Mineral clay so the use of the image is appropriate.
