@Leslie I received my clay today very very discreet I must say. The first thing I did was taste it ! Very chalky I thought and a little earthy. 2nd thing pop it in the oven and Whoop there is! Earthy ,chunky ,hard just LIKE I Like it. Girl I munch on that clay all day I maybe ate to much .So tomorrow I will take several piece to work instead of the entire bag. Well thank you and this clay doesn't stick to your teeth . Almost forgot its in a brown paper bag now getting even earthy.

So happy for you Mary. Once you baked it that clay sounds just about perfect to me...earthy, chunky, hard and non-sticky. It really spoils it for me when it gets all stuck to your teeth and gums.

I think it varies for each individual depending on their tastes but a few days in a paper bag gives a different taste.
Any suggestions for Sour Clay Lover lady and gents?
Once I bake my clay I leave it in the paper bag I eat from my brown paper bag like a bag of popcorn..lol @ Leslie have you bake you a batch yet?

Hello rinkie, as much as I know white clay is not often use in India, you might search on the website like amazon or any other who sells out of here.
