IMO choco-pan tastes 100 times better then satin ice. It's a little harder to work with but so worth it.

You can get it from global sugar art (on sale right now) or into the oven. It's a little softer making it a little trickier to work with. Yes, it is made with chocolate and it taste soooooooo good. If you go to into the oven's web site you can order free samples for just a small shipping charge. I believe they have 6 flavors. The cocolate taste just like tootsie rolls and they also have a carmel.

I have to disagree... I prefer the taste and pliability if SatinIce. Also, when I looked at the ingredients on my ChocoPan no form of chocolate was listed icon_confused.gif . It might just be me, but I really didn't like ChocoPan, and now I have a 5 pound tub of it that I doubt I'll use icon_cry.gif .

Send it my way, I love it icon_lol.gif I really didn't care for the taste of satin Ice, fondex, or penttince. I've never had anyone peel off choco-pan but they did peel off the penttince.

Fondantsource sent me samples of all of theirs and I didn't care for them. My favorites are McCalls and Choco-pan but I haven't found a supplier in the US for McCalls.

For me, it is Choco-Pan hands down!
I got four 5-lb tubs of SatinIce after all the great feedback about it, but I absolutely hate the way it behaves - it overstretches, tears, cracks on edges (I followed someoneâs advice here to knead in a little Crisco and it helped a little, but not enough), not to mention SatinIce stinks â especially the black one, I had to put the tub of black in a double plastic bag in the garage as it was stinking up my pantry very badly! The dark chocolate SatinIce was the only one with some redeemable quality for me⦠So now, that Iâm almost done with those 20lb, Iâm going back to Choco-Pan, or trying something new.

Does chocopan make a white chocolate fondant? Or for that matter, does anybody make a white chocolate?

Yes, choco-pan has a white cocolate and it is also very yummy!

How is Choco-pan in the summer? Does it stand up to humidity well? I have a ton of Satin Ice, and I haven't had any major problems with it, but I have had a little cracking but that was fixed with a little shortening.

Love to know how Choco-pan holds up in warmer weather!

I haven't used it personally, but I have heard from others (I'm in Texas) that it does NOT do well in heat. Satin Ice does.
