Cornstarch Is My Addiction

I started eating cornstarch at a young age my mother used to feed it to me and my siblings now I'm the only one that still have a taste for it my mom and my brother and sister stopped I used to eat a box or container every day until I was hospitalized now I only eat a box our container every week Argo in the container is my least favorite I am now stuck on Karlin's Finest Cornstarch at Dollar General it's so delicious I love the cornstarch that is powdery,lumpy, and sweet at the end of every spoon I eat mine with a spoon and when I'm done with all the cornstarch in the white paperbag that the cornstarch is in,in the box I take the bag out and eat the cornstarch that's left at the bottom of the box I have tried so many cornstarch brands Maizena,Argo,Hogdson Mill,Karlin's Finest, Clover Valley, Clabber Girl, The Walmart, Kroger, and Save @lot brands what ever kind I could find I'll eat it it's crazy that I can tell if the cornstarch is gritty or powdery just by squeezing the container or box I hate the gritty kind and what's even more crazy is I can also tell by the lighting in the store crazy right if the store has a lot of light in it the Argo cornstarch in the container will be gritty but if the lighting in the store is a little dim the Argo cornstarch will be powdery and lumpy I also eat Argo laundry starch I started eating that because I seen a woman on YouTube saying it was delicious so I purchased me a box of it and it was delicious its sweet, powdery, and it taste exactly like it's for clothes because it is I have tried the rock form to the store that sales it is not far away at all I love the rock form kind so much better than the powdery kind well I know this is very long but I just wanted to share my experience with you all

I know the feeling, I sit in my dark closet put a HUGE spoonful of cornstarch in my mouth and inhale gain fabric softener sheets(original scent) while I enjoy that wonderful mouth watering powdered crunch OMG!!!!!

I use to do that i even went as far as pouring gain in a cup...then pouring argo laundry starch in a ziploc bag and sittin it in the cup but it could be messy now i fold gain dryers sheets and just stick them in box for a day or two....gosh it taste just like the way it smells

I am 25 years old and have been eating cornstarch on and off for the last 5 years. (I was a original flour eater lol) However I don't think that eating cornstarch causes anemia or maybe because I started out as anemic but it hasn't gotten any worse or better from what it use to be. But I only eat the argo brand I'll eat a box in a week in a half. but I only crave it when I see powdery stuff or I want to control my emotions such as anger and hormones etc. but for some reason I think it's the only thing keeping me ultimately slim after 3 babies later I'm only 153 lbs and I'm 5''10. I use to weigh 180 in 2009 and haven't been that size since I started.

hmm, my Dollar General here in Nc doesnt carry that brand, but would love to try it. clabber girl is my least favorite. as far as the weight thing i do think it has helped me lose weight as well. i snack on it, instead of candy and donuts! my weight has been maintained as well!..i love to take a spoon full, then wash it dien with milk!

I wish I could find the rock form. Loved it as a child but can't find it anymore in my city.

You have Pica. Go to your primary care physician and he/she will send you to a hematologist who will give you iron treatments over a period of time. The problem I, you are severely anemic. So was I. after a series of infusions your desire for cornstarch will be gone.

I have been eating cornstarch for 19 years ! I tried hodgens mill Argo in the box never could eat the one in container. Clabber girl in can that was nasty! Cream cornstarch and Walmart brand. I loved Argo in box and my favorite is mazeina right now! A box will last for 3 weeks at the most. My 21 daughter eats it her box last 2 maybe 3 days I wish I never gave it to her as a child she can't stop eating it!

Uh-Clabber Girl in the can is the absolute BEST! I first tried it when my supermarket was all out of Argo. When I first tasted it, I admitted that I didn\'t like it but after a few \'servings\' it tasted really, really good and I LOVE IT. It has a nice corn taste to it that I am now totally hooked on.

The funny thing is that C.G. has changed the seal on the can-it used to be metal and now it\'s foil...it doesn\'t taste as good with the foil seal-it\'s like some of the corn taste has escaped or something. By chance, I bought a can at another store and to my delight when I took off the plastic lid it has one of the old metal seals and the good taste I remember! That store obviously still had some of the old stock with the old seals so I plan on going there and buying up ALL of their stock with the delicious corn taste I love!

BTW-an added bonys with C.G. is that it has added calcium so I feel like I\'m doing myself some good by eating it!
