Thanks UK Clay. I have tried searching for soulghfoods and love4clay2@yahoo.com but for some reason it won't come up. I found wahufood, but the shipping was so expensive I didn't order it because I'm not sure if I would like it. I like gritty chunks. I've tried white dirt but it was too smooth and creamy, not what I like. Clay remedies sold the gritty chunks but they have stopped selling the chunks now they only sell powder. I will try to make my own chunks but it is hard because I don't live alone and no one knows I have this habbit. I would like to buy from Mavu . Hope fer site comes back soon!

Soul Sista sells Ayilo and I've had it before it is crunchy and gritty and earthy but not too earthy but it's definitely got a grit to it! Not quite sure why the email addresses aren't working, they should get back to you if they received your email. They do sometimes take a couple of days.

Hi dirt lady, I was just able to purchase ayelo from Transmawfoods.com located in Hyattsville, Md. They also sell calaba chalk. The shipping for US is only 10.00. They have a 14.00 minimum purchase. I've never tried these clays before but I wanted to taste them. The price is much cheaper than buying out of the country. You can also pay through PayPal. I also ordered DE from DiatomaceoueEarth.com . DE is suppose to be good for you. If you're not familiar with DE you can read about it on their website. Clayremedies also sells different types of clay in powder form. I hope this helps you a little.

I'm sorry, I gave the wrong spelling for the DE website. The correct one is DiatomaceousEarth.net

Hi everyone it's been a couple of weeks since I've posted. I've been looking at the cornstarch videos on YT. Wow I didn't realize so many people have made videos and its an all out war I think on who makes the best chunks or who made the chunks first. I eat cornstarch too along with white dirt and chalk. I got sick last week from great value cornstarch a bad headache. So I saw where I can order organic cornstarch without GMO. Haven't had anytime to order my white dirt but I miss the taste.

I just got my DE. It is very smooth white powder with just a little fine grit to it. No earthy tase. Those of you that like corn starch or white dirt might like it. It's suppose to be safer to eat.

I'm going to research DE. Do u just eat it plain? Or mix it with something?

I completely agree with you thats its a war or competition on Yt, snide comments being made against Ms Kenya. But I love her videos and have watched every single of them more than twice. But anyway sorry to hear you fell ill.

My clay cravings are back and are goung through the roof. I had a piece if chalk last week as a result as I just had that craving and it was too strong. Im only going to get a chance to get clay next week. Ill get the original mavu with the tan colour and not the grey and im done with the joburg block clay. Its been almost a month or more since Ive last had clay but its on my mind all the time, Ill be reading and then go off on a tangent and my mouth starts to water. Plus Ive been watching more Yt videos as a result of my cravings. But how I wish I would get to the market and find white dirt there too. Id buy soooooooo much of it, from what you all say it should be really good.

You can take it either with water or if you crave clay, chalk or cornstarch you can eat it straight. It doesn't have the earthy gritty taste that I crave but I wanted to try it. I want to try everything I can until I find what I really like.

Hello, I'm from Bangladesh. We call clay 'sikor' in our country, it tastes so good.
I am currently living in London and was wondering where I could find it.
No shops here sell them, so I sometimes tell family back home to send it to me via crago.
I'm really craving it, I also heard its good for when you're pregnant.
Please let me know
I love Sikor toooooo!!!!

Hello to all,3 months ago I bought clay chunks the yellow ones and baked for an Hour in the oven the color was very nice,I also put the clay in a brown paper bag but i did not like the taste so i put it in the clay flower pot then the taste was very nice,the clay was crunchie and it crumbled in my mouth,but i think i like the unbaked one its so smooth and creamy but i also enjoyed the way the baked one crumbled in my mouth.
On the day that i bought the clay i went with my youger sister,she also loves clay,I told her since i'm paying for the clay she has to choose and pick the clay once we arrived in the street of pretoria,there were two policewomen wearing their uniforms buying clay(i think its maroon or dark purple in color and its sour,I just had a taste)they told me that they love to eat clay very much and that they buy it everyday after work,all of the sudden i was not shy to choose and pick my clay....LOL...***REMEMBER TO ALWAY DRINK LOTS OF WATER LADIES888

Cheers!!!!!!!!!
