the only way for people to start making videos on the YouTube is if one brave person starts to make countless videos about chalk or clay. they don't have to show their face...they could just be showing the clay/chalk or talking about it, chewing a few pieces so people can hear the crunch. when that bold person starts to make videos back to back then others too will make videos... cornstarch all started out w/ that Kenya lady..now there's a lot of videos about cornstarch. it just takes 1 bold person.

Is there any way you could chew up your chalk and then spit it out? That's what I do. That way I can enjoy a big chunk of white dirt every day (about the size of a small apple) and still be regular. I chew it up till all the crunch is gone and spit it into a paper towel. Getting that backed up has got to be dangerous. Please take care of yourself.

Oh no. Try 500ml warm water with the juice of half a lemon. Easy and natural way to get things moving!

I've started to get a bit of relief slowly but surely ive tried to spit back out but it never works for me as i usually chew until the crunchy ness n smoothness is gone by then I've swallowed. However i started drinking hot water with lemon n it seems to be working hope it works faster though

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 .
