Flavorless Or Milder-Tasting Fondant?

I moved from the UK to the US recently and I am trying to find a new brand of fondant that I am happy with.

So far I have only tried a bucket of vanilla Satin Ice and, though I was happy with the texture and workability, and I really wanted to love it, I found the flavor/smell really overwhelming and artificial. To me it almost defeated the purpose of a home-made cake. Despite the scratch vanilla sponge and syrup and the raspberry preserve in the cake, all I could taste and smell was the fondant, which I really disliked, it was really overpowering. No home-made baked good could ever taste like that.

Do you have any recommendations on what fondant to try next based on this? I never had this experience with the Regal Ice sugarpaste I used in the UK, which I guess was really mildly flavored. I now realize I'd rather have no flavor than too much flavor (particularly if artificial like Satin Ice was) for the rolled fondant.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

I found Fondx to be flavorless. Maybe it was just me, though.
