Tesco ready to roll fondant icing?

    Just wondering if anyone uses this and if it's any good? I usually use Shamrock and just saw the Tesco own brand is half the price and I'm wondering if anyone has any feedback on:
    - What it's like to roll/handle?
    - How does it taste?
    - How does it settle? Does it stay smooth, not crack, not discolor etc.

    Tip is to check the UK site for tesco stuff, as it has reviews, gets good reviews.

    They should really have the reviews on the Irish site too.

    It's ok, no better or worse than any supermarket stuff. Aldi/Lidl usually have it this time of year too. I don't think any of the small pack stuff in the supermarkets is near as good as the better brands you get from the sugarcraft suppliers. The supermarkets ones mainly lack good stretch so always have to be kept a bit on the thicker side, fine if you like it but a good elastic paste can be rolled super thin so taste is not as much of an issue as it's hardly the tastiest thing out there :)
