I'm looking for a gel food coloring that is squeezable. I'm currently using wilton food coloring but I'm not crazy about them. I heard Americolor is good. I would love some suggestions.

Thank you! icon_smile.gificon_biggrin.gif

Me three! But I'm pretty sure Wilton won't get too many votes but you never know!

I love Americolor. Have to use less to get color and it is much easier to use.

I use Americolor, I think it is good, way better than Wilton, and your color will stay the same days after (Wilton only lasted few hours).

Now, I recently started watching Cake Boss, and I like their colors more than mines, and they use Chef Master. I would like to give Chef Master a try.

I have some Chefmaster gel colors. I went to my supply store looking for Americolor, but they only sold Chefmaster and Wilton. I bought the chefmaster because it came in a squeeze bottle. I really like them, but now my supply store carries Americolor and that's what I really want. I'll still use chefmasters if I can't find a certain color in americolor; wilton will for now on be my last choice.

I use both Wilton and Americolor. The squeeze bottles actually annoy me sometime and I feel like when they get low I have to really work to get it out or throw away some color gel. There are some colors I like in Wilton better than Americolor.

Chefmaster liqua gel all the way. The only way to get true red and black without waiting hours and no bad taste. No need to start with another color and you use very little

Americolor is wonderful!

If you want to create color formulas, Chefmaster Liqua-gel has a dropper top which makes that easy. (ie. three drops of aqua blue, one drop of violet purple).  With Americolor (which is a great starter gel) you need a toothpick to remove it making it difficult to get a specific color blend over and over again.


After using both, I much prefer the ease of Chefmaster Liqua-gel !


Happy decorating !
