I never understood how people can chew and then spit lol. I feel like I don't get the full taste without swallowing.

But if you haven't tried it, prune juice is powerful but gentle way to uncork yourself.
Have a big cup of prune juice and then another cup of warm water with lemon juice on an empty stomach.

If that doesn't work, take a shot of olive or coconut oil.

I saw the chunks on FB . They are so huge . Especially the 1kg . You're so lucky to have access to that . How long will it take you to eat all that ?

yes those are some big chunks. I think that is the biggest piece I have ever seen anyone have access to. I like that it has a little pink in it. Maybe that is a little red coming through as pink clay. Makes my mouth waters.

Those chunks look so good...I feel weak looking at them, just wish I could have them!

Sorry to sound envious, but you are so lucky.

It is funny what you said about your son calling clay your drugs...mine do the same.

Thank you all.....My son is nuts..I would not know how long it would take met to eat that..But I am guessing maybe a week or two...The big chunks are on their way to MAVU fot tasting..I had a small piece of the reddish looking one and it had a little grit in it..With a hint of earthiness..Those chunks came straight out of the claypit..And they were much bigger,but broke of into pieces...I don't think the red is going to turn into pink,though Ann..The red is the gritty stuff inside the chunk..

I was in such a rush this morning, I forgot my chalk at home.
And the boxes that I keep here for just such an occasion are all finished.

I'm already feeling irritated from my cravings, so I feel like today is gonna be rough lol.

I want them too! Those have got to be some of the best looking kaolin chunks I have seen.

You are really teasing us Suri, lol. Are you able to share with us what the postage cost is like to send to Mavu?

If Mavu sells the clay as big as those are , w/ a good price . I definitely but from her . Even though my fav person is Wanda but Wanda doesn't sell chunks as big as those .

I really want to try those chunks too.
I love biting off a big piece and crunching it between my teeth.
With chalk, the pieces can't realistically be that big because chalk is small, but those big chunks...yum yum.

I meant to get some chalk yesterday while I was at the store . But I was doing so much running around I forgot about getting them . I wanted to try & put them in some dirt to see will they catch that earthy flavor .

Has anyone here tried kalaba chalk?

I want to try some, because the one on the Edible Clay page looks really delicious. But I've read that it can have high levels of lead and arsenic, so I'm not sure about trying it.

But it looks so good.:(
