What are the gritty chalks your referring to? I may like them.
Rose Art was gritty to me.
And I find that alot of the generic chalks that you find in dollar stores (they come in a box of like 40-50 for a $1) is very gritty.

And aztec clay is bentonite clay.
It's super cheap.
I bought a big bag of it to eat once, but I didn't like the earthy taste, so I use it for my hair and skin, and have continued buying it just for that purpose haha.

Just wanted to share with you all what I am currently chewing on: my homemade clay and DE chunks! They are so good, and look and taste similar to ghana moulded clay (well the clay I have had from Soul Sista is better, but this is a good substitute for when I don't have that or other nice chunky clay).
I made the chunks by mixing pretty equal parts of Aztec brand clay with DE and adding just enough water so that the mixture can be shaped. I then heated them for a few minutes in a frying pan (don't know if this step necessary, but that's what I did) then baked in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for about an hour. Crunchy, slightly crumbly tasty chunks!

Are you talking about the Aztec secret Indian healing clay ? The pore cleansing clay? Is it really edible I have a full jar off it that I use as a mask once in awhile

Gritty chalks irritate my teeth and my stomach, so I don't eat them.
Much prefer chalks that melt down to a smooth and creamy texture.

Yes that's what I was talking about. I have eaten it off and on for a couple of years now - mixed with water to make a paste and eaten by the spoon, made into chunks, and now mixed with DE to make a paste or chunks.

On the why we crave and love clay facebook page there is a picture of salted Nigerian clay (nzu). It looks so good to me, but one person on there says "never again". Can fans of this clay give a review please?

All things clay and the rest who've been enquiring about the indian roasted clay..here's a review
the wonderful thing about this clay is that it is super crunchy, earthy, a good mix of creamy and gritty and best of all has a wonderful. I am a compulsive slate pencil and multani mitti eater and when I first tried it, I thought it wasnt for me but trust me, I finished the 500gm bag in a week and ordered 2 more :0))...you will love it. The best part about this clay is it when you bite into it, it breaks up into sort of layers..like thin chips...crunchy clay chips. Is not salty or sticky...just perfect...give it a try !
