Where do you get your white dirt from? I live in the UK and all the white dirt companies in the USA don't deliver to the UK. Does the white dirt taste like chalk? Is it gritty in the mouth or does it stick to your gums in big clumps? I've just received some 'terramin calcium bentonite clay chunks' It taste salty and it sticks to my gums in big clumps - its not gritty at all - just not what I expected at all. I eat chalk but crave the earthy taste. Is white dirt soft, gritty and earthy in taste and texture? If it is like chalk do you think you'd be able to get some to me in the UK - I'll pay for cost and shipping of course.
Thank you
What helped me get the earthy taste in the clay was adding wter to it and letting it drymfor a few days then crushuing it.

I love that page, all the clays look so good, but I guess I fall into the category of being too scared to like it or comment.

I am expecting white dirt chunks in the mail tomorrow. Can someone tell me if I should bake it before I eat it. I am hoping for a very earthy taste. I ordered off of amazon and know that it is coming from Albany Georgia.

I agree . Her dirt is so earthy . I think it's her clay that I've been craving for since I tasted it . I'm trying to work up to get some more . I love how her clay has like this red tint on the inside . It's like true clay that hasn't been chemalized . Mmm my mouth waters as I think about it .

I did get mine. It isn't as earthy as I had hoped but has a nice texture and melts just like chocolate.
