Hi Angela,
Thank you so much I would love for you to ship some white dirt to me in the UK if you can. My email is: disham68@yahoo.co.uk I really look forward to hearing from you. I've tasted those crayola - they taste horrid. I tried the anti-dust pack of 12 white sticks. They have a clear coating around them which stops the chalk rubbing off on your hands. They weren't nice at all. I have a favourite brand of chalk made in the UK called stadium chalk. they taste yummy. They are soft, gritty and melt in the mouth - they just don't have that earthy taste I crave.
Were the crayola chalks you tasted the anti-dust kind?
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 mavuseller@hotmail.co.uk and I'll get back to you!

Kind Regards,
MavuSeller

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
