Made my cornstarch chunks yesterday..... Omg they were so good kinda taste like white dirt once it's in chunk form. I used Argo in the box put box in microwave for two mins and placed in freezer for a couple of hours. When I reopened the box the cornstarch was hard so I broke it up and I could just grab the chunks that had formed. Just like white dirt I popped a piece in my mouth. The crunch the smoothness the way it melted in my mouth was sooooooooooo good. Had a piece before I came to work can't wait til I get home. I must say I really enjoy the chunks!!!!!!

Hey MzLibra
Please describe how white dirt tastes? Is its texture smooth like clay? I heard someone describe it as being chewy. Does it cling to your pallet?
One day, I sure will get my hands on some white dirt. Yummm

For me the white dirt taste dry smooth and very creamy. I bake some and then it's extra dry and chewy yes it sticks to ur pallet. It's described like chocolate melting in your mouth. The smell is like fresh rain

Hi Mel
She sells both the Joburg block clay and the clay from Zim. Which would you like? Im not sure when ill be going into town but when I go ill ask her for you ok?
Interesting that there are no vendors that side because its sold in most places for about R5 a block/packet like here.
Where do you usually get your clay? What kind of clay do you usually eat?
hi Earthy lady, interesting story. can you please ask the lady if there is anyone in Jorbug who sells the Zim clay. i like the Zim clay it's very earthy.

Ooo that looks so good! It looks shaped though. Is it shaped into those balls and oval shapes? Where do you get it from and it is crunchy? How long have u been eating clay?
