Has everybody seen Kenya's videos from a few weeks ago on making and eating red clay dirt chunks? She doesn't seem to dig very deep for the clay, but those chunks sure look and sound delicious. That's what I want most, red dirt.

Oh I found two videos on youtube, though I'd share them on here, the crunch and everything sounds so good.

That first one is her eating white clay I think, Im a little disappointed that it looks like it's not creamy at all but very crunchy. Still would love to try it some day.

My cravings are going through the roof!
These are the best crunchiest videos i've never seen with this one : https://www.youtube.com/watch... . We clearly hear the sound, crunchy and earthy as i like it. Good ones :)

Sure wish I can get my hands on some red clay. Kenya corn starch really made it look good. But I think I need a shovel to really dig deep

Oh yes, saw those videos and it looks really good. We have more red soil back home and I know that the top soil is a brown like shade and you have to dig fairly deep to get to the red but once you do its so worth it. I've also found that through the years its become clay like once allowed to sun dry.

So I thought I'd do a review on Ghana Baked Clay -Ayilo

You get 15 pieces in a zip lock sandwich bang varying from big to small pieces which I think is great, but as it was brought during the sale it paid a total of nearly 7 pound and I don't think this is worth the product as from soul SISTA I could get at least 40-50 pieces including positing for that amount.

In regards to the taste the website states that the product is baked again to lock in the earthiness but to me it tastes quite chemical, it doesn't have the usual Ayilo smell to it either and it would have to be something I got used to which might come if I kept re purchasing

The texture however is crumbly gritty and smooth which would be the reason I would repurchase

Soul sista however will still be my number one clay supplier, the smokiness that comes with her Ayilo is unbeatable, as well as the earthiness!

Thank you GBC for still being available though, customer service is definitely at the forefront as I received the clay within a day of ordering :)

Indian roasted clay is too costly. If you get from India is cheaper then here in which price you sell.

Oh, but the one in the video doesn't look like slate pencil to me. It's too white and slate pencil doesn't seem like it would be that crunchy.

My best guess for the video would be pelikan chalk.

Is pelikan chalk shaped like that.? It does seem a little thicker than slate pencil.

it is costly because of shipping charges..You can go to nearest post office and find out the rates...1bag weighs 500grams...price will always differ if quantity is more. The price of 1 bag getting from India is more than double the price I sell here.

I see they sell chalk that us a square shape but the thing is to find the right brand of chalk. If that chalk has an earthy , crunchy then smooth taste it will be perfect. It will be a lot mess than white dirt. You can break off a small piece and pop it in your mouth. My mouth is watering. I have not had any clay for a long time.

Most of the square chalk I've seen is hair chalk or pastels and they come in colors. :(

I typed in slate pencil chalk and I saw a few that looks like the one in the video. Someone on why we crave order slate pencil and said it was very hard. She had to wet it. I guess different clay produce different products. I would love to try the ones in the video.
