Hi forum!

So I went to my local African supermarket and there I found bags of roasted clay. The packet just says roasted clay. So I brought one packet. They're are chunks, a greyish colour a light kind of grey. Hard when you bite it but it melts when it's in your mouth. Some pieces are wonderfully earthy, after it melts you can feel the crunch!

Does anyone know what kind of clay this is!

They are moulded. Some are in huge chunks some have been broken into smaller bite size pieces. They are very addictive!

So happy to find other people with the same habit as I do. Just ordered some of mavu's red dirt waiting for it to be delivered has to be the hardest part. I'm looking for other clay I can try that have an earty taste and are as good as the red soil cakes.

Received my order of white dirt from Leslie today! Opened and took a bit, same as I remember soft & creamy. So of course I took a bit from the other bag and that was good too. I purchased some cornstarch(Argo n the container) to hold me over until my white dirt arrived. I ate some for two days very soft & squeaky. But I tell you today I threw the rest of the container away, a lot was left. I beginning to accept cornstarch is over for me. I will bake my white dirt and break it up into small pieces, and when that craving comes, just pop a piece n my mouth.
