Does anyone know long it typically take for Mutt and Jeff to deliver?

I'm also very curious to hear how Kellzgirl's batch was.

I tried a piece of Sargent brand chalk anti dust from Office Depot . I broke a small piece off a stick & put it back in the box . I just wanted to taste it to see would I like it . I didn't . It taste like chemical flour . Not earthy or anything like I'm used to . Still haven't went home to get my white clay . I moved out my parents house and left some things there , one of them being my dirt unfortunately . I've been so busy lately .

It is just right. Smooth crunchy and no grit. They have been having really quality stuff the last several times I have ordered. And to get 20 pounds for 30 dollars is such a great price.

If you order during the week they ship only on Thursday so the clay usually gets delivered either on Monday or Tuesday. If you order after Thursday you might have to wait on the following Thursday. Their web site says UPS usually pick up only on Thursday's.

Hey, S.A I actually stay in PTA, but the forum keeps saying JHB even after I change it, I don't know why... But I know in JHB cbd they sell clay, especially near MTN Rank... Also in Randburg near the Randburg rank they sell clay... What's you're favorite clay? And if you ddnt eat clay in CPT when did you start eating it and where would you get it from?
Hey Mobu, well I started by eating dirt and soft brick. I am originally from the E.C, so id only get my fix when i get home, coz CPT is just sand :-(. so excited to know that i'd be getting the right fix in JHB. I was recently introduced to white clay by a friend, her mother is a potter, and it's delicious.

Why do you feel embarrassed when buying it, no one really knows what you are going to use it for. Try parking in some dodge area because you spot good dirt, and talking a walking, then 'accidentally' dropping your keys just so that you can pick them up with a handful and then run to your car, now that's embarrassing, and i used to do that. so buying it at a market, i'm looking forward to that. oh and the boyfriend thing, i think mine just overlooks it, because i dry it in the oven and snack on it anytime, he just looks at me a bit weird.

When it comes, please tell us what it's like.

I'm trying to cut back, because I think eating chalk is part of why my iron has stayed so low, but mutt and jeff's white dirt looks too yummy.

It is gritty but melts easily in your mouth.

I have received my yellow powder clay last week. It has a consistency of a very fine powder. However, it does not melt in your mouth completely, leaves just a little bit of grit behind. It has a relatively strong earthy flavor, not sour. I sprinkled a few spoonfuls on top of Mutt and Jeff's clay; so I have the crunch of the white dirt with the flavor of the yellow. I love it!
