<quoted text> I lobe a earthy taste so do any of the clay have that? An I had de be 4 an over ate it
Hi Cat, the items I have are not that earthy in taste - most chalks aren't really. The amaco pottery clay I have is a bit earthy an is in chunk form. It also clings to your gums when you eat it and is gritty.

The German chalks I have are the closest chalks I've had to earthy. That is earthy in texture, crumbly, gritty and soft too. Not chemically. But the taste still lacks. But far better in taste than other chalks I have tried - and I have tried many over the years.

The closest to earthy I have tasted is the Luvos internal healing earth/clay - it is like very fine sand - so does not stick to the mouth like clay. Here is the link:http://www.purenature24.c o.uk/buy/luvos-healing-earth-f or-internal-use-4160

The only other thing I've eaten that taste earthy is the plaster on walls. The Odowa clay that Mauvseller had was a bit earthy - the taste grows on you. But there has been complaints about her customer service on here.

Sorry I couldn't be of much help.

Hi Clay junkie, have you tried buying the clay in powder form and then mixing it with water and then baking it or air drying it? This can be done with DE too. Some people do this with Kaolin - has we can't get raw chunks in the UK like they can get it in the US.

I'm so happy for you - wish it was me getting some too, but I'm so nervous of getting a type I don't like and wasting my money (shipping very expensive).

That's a long time for you with no cornstarch! Please give us a full report when you get your dirt :)

I just got my dirt and I could hardly wait to open the box. it came from Sam but he ships Grandma's Georgia White Dirt. I've already had four small pieces. Very smooth and creamy! The last piece I didn't crunch I just let it melt in my mouth. It was like I ate a piece of candy.

Hey cornstarch eater yes the dirt taste very good. I just sampled another piece and this one taste kinda sour it was still smooth and creamy. The bag smelled like fresh rain. I am very satisfied with this order. The sour taste was different but very delicious. No gritty taste like sand or anything.
