Fondarific is so freakishly good it is unreal. I love it a thousand times more than MMF. It is kind of pricey though. On their website they have the option to order a sample of three colors or flavors for just 6.00 and it arrives very quickly.

I purchased a sample pack that had a small pack of each flavor. Just enough to taste for about five bucks. It is really good!

I only use Fondarific. I had a cake once that was lemon cake and they wanted an ivory colored light lemon flavored fondant. So I mixed the buttercream flavor with the lemon flavor and got the perfect ivory color and the most amazing tasting lemony buttercream flavored fondant. It was a hit. So now I am hoping to try mixing the BC flavor with all their other flavors to see what the result is. Yum!

Fondarific is great tasting but is very pricey. It cost me $42 for 5 lbs with shipping and handling.

I love Fondarific. My family thinks the buttercream tastes alot like candycorn. It is also easier to work with when rolling out and kneading. You can soften it in the microwave for a few seconds and it does better than other brands without all that kneading. Be aware that it is also harder to move around once rolled and lends itself to alot more stretching compared to when I use the Satin Ice which tends to be firmer. It also doesn't "crust" as much as the Satin Ice, so for people who don't enjoy fondant it can be a lot more enjoyable. It is quite pricey though. Satin ice here at the local store runs about $17 for 5lbs. The same amount of Fondarific is $28. I'd say give it a try though. It is quite awesome! I am hoping as more people use it the price might come down, but for now I jump between brands depending on the client.

The butter cream Fonarific does taste good. I don't like some of their other flavors, however. I also don't like that if you want pre-colored, its' also pre-flavored with a flavor (and strong smell) that may not match your cake. Perhaps they've changed that now.

I've only used the chocolate. It tastes exactly like Tootsie Rolls. Easy to work with, too.

I ordered the sample pack and thought the taste was excellent. I have tried MMF, Fondx, and Satin Ice and really don't care for any of it (love working with it) but the buttercream Fondarific was really good to me. I really liked the lemon flavor too and ate it like candy. :-O
