Made my decision on buying Wanda clay !!! I'm so excited . I placed my order off amazon which is a dollar more than off her website ( goodoledirt.com ) but I had a gift card that had $2 left so I bought that with it so it was a dollar cheaper than buying it off her website. Can't wait until its shipped and I hope it comes quick too. Yum yum !

I think she been having mixed reviews because when people order white dirt, they actually just want white plain dirt. Wanda dirt isn't pure white, it's like a pinkish color on the inside when you bite into it, that's the sour part. the outside is white though. most people crave the regular white dirt like the one Leslie sell and some crave sour white dirt the one that Wanda sell. if the people who didn't like Wanda clay then they probably most likely would like Leslie clay. you should try wanda dirt and see do you like the white sour dirt.
Thanks for that. I think I would love Wanda's, I'm looking for that sour taste - as long as it's not too sour! Regular white dirt is nice, but a bit bland for me.

The people who can just go to a market or store and buy it are so lucky...they don't sell clay chunks in my country at all - best you can find sometimes is powdered clay. I can understand why it would be easy to overeat though.

I am totally out of clay. The chalk sticks I have aren't that great, not as hard and crunchy as I like which was disappointing.

I used to be a BIG cornstarch addict, but hadn't had even a taste in months - I had just lost the taste for it. Well I noticed a new brand at the store last night and was tempted to buy a box. I've had a couple spoons and it is good - the brand is Karlin. I want to have some more now, but am frightened of falling back into the cornstarch habit.

Hey ATC! The young lady on YT was eating that brand Karlin's. In the last two months I've thrown away 3 boxes of cornstarch, I eat a little and then I'm like oh well the thrill is gone lol. I don't know if it's the anticipation of wanting it and then when I get I don't want it. I ordered some white dirt from Leslie it's really creamy a lol grit. I think I'm getting over my Pica as I've stated before. Nothing is satisfying anymore. Over the years I've eaten baby powder, chalk, cornstarch, white dirt, arrowroot powder, and laundry starch.

No I've never tried hers, maybe I will order one bag. I've had the Granny's Own and Leslie's. I've never had Mutt & Jeff or Home Grown Ga. White Dirt. We should both order a bag from Wanda and compare

You are so lucky!

I see that you are from Zimbabwe. I've had Mavu Seller's clay, but what are the white and red chunks like there? Please give us a full description to make our mouths water lol!

Nzu is slow killer. I was into it but now I ve gone out of it. It is an iron deficiency which causes anemia. This nzu almost killed me before I realize that is the cause of my ill health.

I receive my clay on Saturday but I wasn't at home . Yesterday (Sunday) when I came home I immediately put my clay in a brown paper bag . This morning I couldn't help myself but to try one small piece ... Or three lol . It's soo good . It hasn't reached that sour taste yet but I missed the earthy taste . I'm going to leave the clay in the brown paper bag for the remainder of the time that I have it by the time I'm finish with it , it should be very earthy and sour . Wandas good ole dirt never let's me down . Happy satisfied customer .

Love eating red clay that has been lightly fired (once) the taste is incredible! I also like white limestone which could be used as chalk.
I don't see anything bad with it except it affects tooth enamel, but other than that it's a natural craving.
I always loved the smell of wet red clay . When I was in school I always ate white chalk, we used for writing on the board. And recently, I was hiking hills near by and found white clay or limestone it might be called I guess, exposed to surface and for some reason I picked some in my backpack. Since then, there was not one day passed by that I have not chewed on some limestone, I have terrible craving for it. My friend thinks I am weird one. Probably it is natural source of getting caley and calcium. Most probably I donít get it enough with my food.

I'm still enjoying my "Karlins Finest" cornstarch, but trying to have in moderation. I still have about half a (1 pound) box left and it's been a week so I feel quite proud of myself. I know that I shouldn't be eating starch though, it's just to have something to keep me going until I decide to order some more clay.

I've been munching on white chalk sticks again too - another thing I know I shouldn't eat but at least now I'm just chewing them rather than actually eating.

Would anyone else who has had Wanda's clay like to share their experience with it? I'm seriously thinking of ordering some.

Thanks!

I found a store near me that has clay. They sell it in big bags with at least 30-40 pieces in each bag for less than $11.00 a bag. I love it.
