Tried placing an international order from good ole dirt via email as that's the only way the site says it accepts orders but no one has responded yet ? Anyone else who tried to order internationally have heard back from them ?? Never tried white dirt and read so much about it on the forum of how creamy and melt in the mouth it is.

I'm very excited to order her clay on my own with nobody help.:) I just want to know since we're in the same state how long will it take to get here.

Yay! I'm so excited. I've been craving clay for a long time and now I get to have a few bags.:)

Hello all I have been reading post on this fourm. I love corn starch I was given argo landury starch at a young age. Then I felt ashamed so i started eatting argo corn starch in the box. I wish I could get the old starch it was so crunchy and good. How ever I have ate different type of starch. I'm eight months pregrant and have not eaten any corn starch at all. But I'm always on you tube watching people eat it wishing it was me lol. I told my husband I would not eat starch with this child so far so good

I wish I could have tried some of that old crunchy starch - it sounds perfect.

You're doing really well to stay off the starch; you should be very proud of yourself.

Hi munni, you're being very disciplined - I know how difficult it can be. I first had these type cravings many years ago when pregnant too; they went away, then came back again due to my being anaemic. Have you mentioned your cravings to your doctor?

I suppose you can say that I am now a chalk addict. I would have it now and then before, but recently have to have it and have about a box of 12 a day (although a couple of days ago had two boxes). I sometimes just chew it, but sometimes swallow and could eat a lot more than a box a day but try to limit myself.

I would love to try slate pencils; they look so natural and crunchy. Anyone know whether they are sold in UK? There is a significant Asian population there, so I wondered if they sold them in shops. If so I will look to get a supply when I travel there, along with plenty of clay!

I have just tried good ole earth. I didn't like it at first but after I baked it it was perfect! So I was going to order some more and was wondering about MuttandJeff. It looks like price wise they would be best but I have seen that they were out of clay for awhile and some of the clay has not been good quality. Has anyone ordered from them recently? Has the quality been good? Thanks

how long did you bake it? I had order from mutt and Jeff about three to four months ago . I still have most of the clay because my craving are not that great. I like their clay. It is crumbly and nice. you do however find pieces that have different texture that might be or not to your liking. I tried another company and it was not as good. At first I did not like Mutt and Jeff but after trying it for a couple days as suggested by some one I loved it. The price is reasonable too.

The large pieces 18 to 20 minutes at 275 degrees. I flipped them halfway through. The smaller pieces abt 10 minutes and flipped the ones that were big enough. I was concerned with MuttandJeff since I had seen a few people saying they got theirs and it was sandy. Their prices seem to be the best though.

I have never experience sandy clay with them. Maybe a few pieces too hard to chew like it was over baked. I think their clay must be good because their has been times when they are sold out and i could not get it to buy. I did try i believe it was sams it was not that wonderful and it was less in the bag. Well everyone has different taste and texture for the clay they desire. Thanks for the info.
