Does anyone actually like grit in their white dirt? The two orders I have recently got from Mutt and Jeff have had a fair amount of grit. There have been plenty of the smooth crunchy pieces I like too. But it just got me to wondering if anyone actually likes the gritty pieces.

About Mavu I haven't ordered from her. Too high for me but I realize that she has got to make enough money to make it worth it for her. Not just shipping prices but also her time spent sourcing her product getting it from her suppliers then getting it ready to ship it out to her customers. If I were doing her I would be sure to price it high enough to make a little something for my effort.

Cheers

Used to eat it 15 years ago and stopped, got a piece again and got hooked. I am honestly trying to stop, I have recently started feeling discomfort in swallowing and I am attributing it to this bad habit. I swallow it no more, all I do is chew and spit it out and immediately brush, and it gives me the same satisfaction. I am still trying to stop this altogether. I feel like throwing it all out but how can I?

Odowa lover! My clay arrived this morning....im doing the moonwalk dance. Now that the roasted clay came through in one piece will try and use the same method to get some red (kisumu) odowa shipped with a few things like royco, pilau spice, tea masala and binzari.

Well havent seen it on her website but this is not roasted its mined straight and consumed...others prefer to boil it with salt (dont like these) but tastes very earthy like mavu clay if uv ever tried it. You can type in odowa youtube if you want to make your mouth water.

Hi I am from bangladesh I used to eat roasted clay they were grey square chunks, white in the inside, crunchy melts in your mouth, little gritty. Does anyone know where I can get this clay at all?
