I don't like the Anti Dust Chalks but the An Du Septic chalk is the best.
I've tried what I think is that Anti Dust Chalk and found it to be horrible (but then again it isn't meant to be chewed/eaten lol so I guess they don't make it to be tasty). I haven't tried An Du Septic but often have Crayola chalk that is just labelled 'Chalk'- nice and crunchy with just a little bit of grittiness to it. Just wish it had an earthy taste.

ATTENTION LADIES!

I know a lot of you have waited what has seemed like FOREVER for this news so I am beyond excited to have the original MAVU clay back in stock!!

So much that I'm going to be holding an INTRODUCTORY OFFER for both my old and new customers!

This means I'll be selling 300g bags for just £5 instead of the standard £6.50!
(max. 4 bags per customer)

This offer will be held in the First Hour of sale which will be on SUNDAY 19TH MAY @ 7PM-8PM GMT (make sure to check what time this is for you depending on which country you're in.)

By letting you know ahead of time I'm making sure that you have more than enough time to get ready as this is something you definitely DO NOT want to miss out on!

(This will also give me enough time to sort and bag the clay in time for the sale so that the orders can be efficiently shipped out on the Monday morning.)

If you have any questions that haven't been answered on the FAQ's page, or questions about the offer, don't hesitate to shoot an email at [email protected] and I'll get back to you!

Kind Regards,

Mmmm oh how I would love to have some crunchy , crumbly & then smooth earthy white dirt right now . My crave comes & go but sometimes I just wish I have an chunk to munch on to get me by .

Anyways , been off clay for a few months & I haven't switched to corn starch because most of you ladies suggest its not a good idea . Plus I like the earthy flavor & I doubt that cornstarch has that .

I hope everybody enjoys their clay , chalk & corn starch . I'm just sitting here watching videos .:)

This is great news Mavu Seller...would you also set the pricing based on the countries you ship it to as well. There is a lof o difference between buying this from US UK or ordering this from India as there is such a huge difference due to currency exchange. A bag of your clay at even 5 pounds plus shipping will cost me around 1000 indian rupees which is very very expensive. Considering things like multani mitti or slate pencils cost 5 to 20 rupees. Can you let me know if some discount can be provided ? If it cant..i'd understand as you have to look at your margin as well

I went to the african market where I live......disappointed bcuz the state of Virginia will not let them sell the clay.....the lady knew what I was talking abt, she even showed me in a book. I went to teacher supply store looking for chalk. All they had was Melissa & Doug white chalk. I don't like that brand or Prang. I love crayola anti-dust white chalk. I'm back to eating cornstarch. Kroger brand is good. I want some white dirt. I'm not going back to baby powder. Where my son goes to college they have red dirt along the highway, my mouth (waters when I c it. Has anyone eaten red dirt? Wat does it taste like?
EBay has tons of Crayola Chalks. Also try your local colleges...they have chalk, I use to rake chalk out of the class rooms that were empt

Hi Indian Chalkie!

Unfortunately, even though you have reasonable concern in regards to the exchange rate, it wouldn't be feasible for me to lower the price as you rightly said.

My apologies as I would love for EVERYONE to try the original MAVU!
