Flavoured cornstarch??!! So does that means cornstarch eaters go purely for the texture and are not on a quest for an earthy taste like us clay/dirt eaters??

I can't speak for others but for me (who loves cornstarch and clay as well as other things) I look for an earthy taste where possible as well as a nice texture (I like dry things and prefer a bit of grittiness and love crunchy chunks).

I also love stuff that has a bit of a sour taste, which to me brings out the earthiness. I'm guessing that sour taste is what Kenya was trying to create by adding a bit of lemon juice to the starch and that's why I decided to try it. Cornstarch by itself isn't earthy - my favourite types have some flavour, but if something can be done to improve/help bring out the flavour I'm willing to give it a try.

As far as i know.. nobody craved da way im doing it now as a preggy!! Though my mom knows dat pregnants smtyms feel lyk having non food items, one of them being dirt/clay.. she gave an inch of soft pottery peice just to see if i eat it as interetingly as other food items... dat day i had it!! n asked for a lil bit more. then she undrstud my Pica condition... bt from then on dint encourage me in ny way. At tat tym I found this forum wer all of u guys r openly discussing n sharing all da experiences u went thru n also being informative!
Hence, I thot someone atleast from here wud respond to me n help me satisfy my craving which z now very uncontrollable.!! Sadly, none of my close frnds r interested in having clay r stuff these!! my family ppl r against me having even a lil... n who else can I talk to other dan dis forum!

I'm really craving clay right now , I'll do anything to get my hands on some white dirt . I'm trying to resist myself into buying corn starch but these cravings are so strong . I'm trying to keep them under control . But it's really hard . Hopefully I can stay clean . *fingers crossed*
