I just went to Ross and got a 3Lb of fondarific for $11.99. I asked the cashier how long have they been selling it but she didn't know. Anybody else see it at these types of stores.

Ross like the discount clothing and home decor store?? Sorry if that's a stupid question, that's the only Ross we have here.

We have Ross the discount store also - I will have to run by there and check it out. What section did you find it in? I wasnt aware that they have actual food items other than spices.

I got some too, however they were 2lb tubs (32oz) of chocolate brown and wedding white. I wasn't aware they made any 3lb tubs. Funny thing is not a single one of them had an expiration date stamped on the label; they were all left blank...

I bought 3 - 2 lb containers, red, wedding white and chocolate for $11.99 each at our Ross a couple of weeks ago. I've never used Fonderific before but all three were hard as a rock when I opened them. I had to pre soften them in the microwave to use them. Not sure if that's normal to be so hard but you couldn't even cut it apart with a knife. I was able to use it but I mixed it with my regular fondant to keep it elastic. I think I'll stick with my Massa and Satin Ice. Pam

I know! i too checked for the expiration date and could not find.

I think it's supposed to be that hard. It says on the side to put in micro to soften.

I'm guessing that the Duff's I get at Michaels here is the fondarific. And yes, it's hard as a rock. His has instructions on the side for microwaving it. 10 seconds per pound. and more as necessary. Just be careful not to over nuke it. But I love working with it. And even the black tastes good.

Okay I went back to Ross today to see if they had anymore Fondarific and guess what? All the colors were on clearance for $5.99 icon_eek.gif (the Wedding White color was still regular price), but I still grabbed every bucket I could find of the ones on sale icon_lol.gif I figure even if I decide to try another brand later (gonna splurge on Massa one of these days), I can still use this for modeling and accents...

Thanks for sharing. Going to have to check it out. I did find some princess emulsion there recently.

I find Wilton pans at Ross here all the time, but never came across any fondant.

Have you checked the 'food' section, usually on the same shelves as the gourmet coffee, spices and candies? You might have to move some stuff around (the tubs I found today were behind some very large boxes of chocolate). This is the first time, well second, that I've purchased fondant there.

Also like VentureSister mentioned, they've started stocking some LorAnn emulsions and vanilla extract/paste. Before Thanksgiving I bought a bottle of vanilla paste, one almond, two orange, two lemon, and one princess cookie emulsions. They were all sold out by Christmas though. Strangely enough they had more emulsions today (but no vanilla paste icon_sad.gif

Oh and they rarely have Wilton pans at any of our Rosses. If they do they're either dented or sized wrong. I learned my lesson the hard way on the latter!

Jkip, if you have a TJmax around they also have vanilla paste and all that good stuff. No fondant though
