Goodmorning I finally receive the nzu calabar/ chalk and the taste is very earthy with a muddy tart taste. Didn't like it at first so I bake it and it is okay. It doesn't look like the long white chalk on the internet .its in medium size chunk sizes . It's very creamy and does stick to your theeth and gums. But overall it a good taste very smooth.

On my end when I log in as a consumer and click the links, they appear to be ok.

Thanks for your input.
