@ Indian Chalkie..

Clay pots r nuthng but the small or big mud pots they make wid soft n gritty clay in pottery.. which r red in color. The clay they use in preparing it is red clay.At tyms few potters use chocolaty brown, dark brown clay for making some pots. Just coz I find no way of having red clay in chunks form, I satisfy my cravings by having it dis way!!

I've access only to it n slatepencils nowadays! clay pots, I nibble every now n then but in very minute pieces n slatepencils much more in moderation as I'm taking a very gud care in not effecting my baby insyd me! ;)

@Miley,
How r u able to manage slatepencils in Finland?? Do u have access to it over der? i don't think so! Then wot is it tat u have wid u now?

@Chalkie

the easy way to find potter's clay is to go to ny nearby place wer u'll find ny potter who makes red clay pots.. they will have a huge collection of red clay necessary to make lots of pots! give him or her a proper reasn (smtyms a silly lie can help!! ;))

The pots they make r of different sizes. some r made of soft red clay which z not sooo gritty but feels crunchy while chewing every bite! N some r made wid grittyy Red clay! In both the cases, u feel tat earthy taste.. even if u add few drops of water on them they smell lyk... wowww... earthy heaven n u can stop sniffing!! ;) yum!!

So far I had Cycle brand n lions brand slatepencils (which I'm currently having). The first one seemed good to me..! Wot kind do u lyk in them??

I've been eating them for 18 yrs now. Eaten every brand possible and available but Tiger just beats them all. It is clean crunchy kaolin without any grit...Just the right amount of crunch and smells the same !! wet earth on a rainy day... a smell we so lovvvvve

I have put links to a couple of youtube videos in the past. Here is one to look at, I suggest looking on youtube for more or just doing a google search - it seems like there are a whole lot of people that eat slate pencil.



Here is another link, to one showing a young woman eating. It looks and sounds so good...

I haven't found it for sale on any UK or US website...if anybody knows if it is possible to order some please let us all know!
