I am always looking for a good pre made fondant Ive fell in love w/Albert Uster fondant its just way expensive & am now in need of some chocolate fondant I can't use SI b/c its just to sticky & cracks on me every time I know its all about preferance . I was looking for some input on a good fondant w/ a texture as workable as the Wilton or AU fondant(but not as nasty tasting as Wilton) .Is pettinice an easy one to work with?[/b]

Sorry, I can't comment on Pettinice since I've never used it. However, I like Albert Uster fondant the best out of the brands and homemade ones I've tried also. I've been thinking about how I can stretch out the usage of the tub of Albert Uster fondant and one way that I've been considering is to mix it with a different brand. I've had success in the past with mixing Albert Uster with Satin Ice. If you don't find a suitable replacement, maybe you could consider mixing the fondant with a less expensive one.

Fondarific's Chocolate fondant is delicious. Tastes like a Tootsie Roll. Very nice to work with, unlimited work time, stays soft for quite a while.

Fondarific's chocolate fondant is $65.50 for a 10 lb tub whereas AUI's chocolate fondant is $63.43 for a 13 lb tub. So unfortunately, it doesn't sound like a viable alternative for the OP since he/she is looking for a less expensive brand.

You might be interested in checking out Creative Cutters ML Sugar paste. It is absolutely terrrrific, it comes in white, ivory and chocolate mmm! It is exceptionally easy to work with and is very forgiving, versatile and modifiable. It can be rolled quite thin so it covers and decorates further. At $36.95 and $40.95 for 11 lbs or 5 kg plus shipping, I am a happy customer.

I make modeling chocolate/chocolate plastic instead of chocolate fondant. It is very simple to make I use an Allrecipies . com recipe and it only calls for chocolate chips and corn syrup. melt and mix together. Let it sit over night and the next day it's ready. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I find it much easier to work with than fondant, and it is so tasty!
