I'm not sure what kind of white clay you bought, but if you bought
1 1/2 lb of white dirt for 15 dollars I think you were ripped off...
1 1/2 1b of white dirt bought in person (gas station, farmers market, etc.) is usually never over 4 dollars...
As for the best tasting chalk (if you mean the drawing chalk) in my opinion Prang Hygieia Chalk is the best. I've only tasted the yellow one because I can never find this brand of chalk in white in my area. However, I stopped eating it as I think I have an allergic reaction to the dye in the yellow chalk. It makes my feet itch really bad and I get a slight rash that fades before the days end with the help of a heating pad... It's so much tastier than crayola and just the right bit of crunch and smoothness.
I don't know much about buying clay an I brought it from a lady there who sell it out of her house. She didn't want to sell it to me because I'm young (16), I would just take chalk from the teacher's but now the use white bores an markers. But I was so happy to get I didn't care the cost.

@willow. Your to young to be eating clay. She may have made you pay that much because she know it will hurt you in the long run. Please try to stop.

Its been awhile since I've eaten white dirt. I started eating cornstarch and stayed with that for 4yrs. I stopped eating it bcuz it didn't satisfy my cravings anymore. My desire for white dirt is back. So, I've been debating on purchasing some. I live in Virginia and I have to order online. I will be ordering soon just to see if it satisfies my craving. Its been almost 2 weeks and no cornstarch. I was eating 1-2 boxes a week. Hopefully the white dirt will taste like it did before. I love it smooth and creamy! I was ordering from www.whitedirt.com . Does anyone know of any others online that have good white dirt?
