Hi anjali I'm from Toronto and I just go to any sort of west indies store in Etobioke or even a african store and I usually find clay but all that I seem to be finding is the ghana clay nothing else
Does the taste compare to grey roasted soft stone for mahrashtra India? Do you like Ghana clay?

Just a thought. I have a feeling that even after all these new clays that being brought in ppl will STILL complain! Who agrees? Clay eaters are NEVER satisfied. Literally sellers are going to the ends of the earth to source requested dirt and ppl still ungratefully complain. Even an ounce of respect goes a long way.

I guess so. I'm thinking mavu has her work cut out for her. Shame about Leslie. Soulsista seems to be the only one that's had it easy on here.

My sister inlaw and mother also eat clay, you could try ordering online I ordered from leslie on March 9th or 10th I dont remember, and I just received no extra charges or anything I ordered the 2 one pund bags and all together it was 30 something.

I think all sellers on this forum have had their good and bad days and trust me, Soul Sista has also had her days. Clay, as a general rule, is a very delicate product to market. The tastes and texture of the clays vary all the time and to make an impact you need to know the likes of your customers and be a clay eater as well to be able to please them. That is always not possible, but understandable (though frustrating), when a consumer gets disappointed when they don't get the right product. And I'm sure we all know that feeling when you have waited for the product and it eventually arrives but way beyond expectations. Hmmmm, hell breaks loose in your inbox (wink). But aside from the monetary aspect of it, it's been a real pleasure to know you have been able to satisfy and please so many customers, as well as making some really good friends through the process.

@alabma red have your Ghana Clay arrive ?
The Ghana clay arrived yesterday. I have discovered that I'm not a true clay eater. I'm used to red crunchy sour dirt straight out of the ground. I'm not complaining because I wanted to try the different clays but I have not found any clay that satisfies my palate. So therefore I have decided to just take my iron tablets and eat healthy because I am anemic.

PS> Mary if you want the Ghana roasted clay i will ship it to you if you pay for the cost of shipping. Please leave me your email to discuss.
