It is the Haitian diet cookies, it is so good! Is is made made with a special clay from Haiti. but i dont have acces to it here in Florida.
I tried the white dirt, From Sam's and home grown dirt of Georgia, but I did not really like it.
I want to try something different, like Odowa, Mavu, Calabash chalk, ect...

I love clay. I consume it everytime i can. Theres just one problem. I started consuming clay with glaze and it gave me lead poisoning and i unfortunetly was breastfeeding at the time and gave my son lead poisoning also. It is so painful when you have lead poisoning so i recommendthat you buy the one without glaze.It is an iron deficiency problem. Im very amemic and this is why I crave so much i can go thru two jars of clay a day. Its a bad addiction and I wish i could stop.

Want to recommend something to all those of you who crave eating clay(nzu). It does not only have a great taste but also very healthy. You would not experience anything like constipation whatsoever. It is infact a natural deitary supplement. I am using it since a year now and never experienced any health hazards. In germany its called heilerde which means healing earth. None of you would ever regret getting a pack. Here is a link to pictures and facts about this wonder powder. I recommend translating the page into english. Simply copy and paste the following into your browser. Alright, have a happy new year and God bless you!.http://www.google.de/sear ch?hl=de&q=heilerde&ba v=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.& bvm=bv.41248874,d.Yms&biw= 1366&bih=594&um=1& ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&sour ce=og&sa=N&tab=wi& ei=NV34UJPkFYfxsgbNmICYBg

It's probably cause of the chemically taste it had . A lot of us didn't like it until we put it in a paper bag & let it dry out . & once it dries out its really earthy , smooth & creamy .

I feel like I live in this double life . Like I can't get on here & just talk freely about eating clay & how I crave clay . But then off this forum I have to be like eww who eats clay ? That sounds nasty . & I have to hide the fact that I do eat clay or even get on this forum cause I don't want nobody to see that's crave clay . It's so complicated . Anyways the cravings for clay is starting to come back but it's not strong . Trying to see how long can I go before I start demanding clay .

Ok so the symptons for lead poisoning are differemt. For me it was just a really bad non stop cholic in your stomach. Its on going and you cant really eat anything. Nothing helps. You practically have to get Kilation therapy which are these huge pills that you drink that can take lead out. But lead can stay in your system forever. It stays into your bones. If you are breastfeeding or pregnant you can pass it on to your child. And it affects the way the kids learn or grow in the future. I also had like hray stains in my teeth like on my gums which is the lead. They went away and my teeth are clean now but thwy were pretty essed up looking for a while.

Glaze is like the glossy paint that they put on the clay. See i was consuming mexican pottery amd i bought clay dishes from the store that had glaze. So the clay was non lead poisoning but the glaze that was put on is full if lead.

Hi Mee

I find that eating dirt has the opposite effect of starch as it helps you maintain or loose weight.

If you want to try our Georgia White dirt, I ship same day and I always have some in stock.

Hi Chalk Lover

Im so glad that you are now able to offer this product to our sisters/brothers in the UK. Its so hard to find people with a consistent stock.

Ive been on this fourm for a minute and I noticed that its hard for our clay eating friends to find a supplly overseas. This should help them out since they wont have to pay those high shipping prices that they pay to get it from here in the USA.
