Americolor came highly recommended by my cake decorating instructor. The colors are dramatic and fade less than some others. Since they are a gel paste, they do not change the consistency of the icing.

These were the worst food colors that I've ever used, but I blame that on the seller not the manufacturer. Some of the bottles that I receive seem to work fine (by which I mean are the correct color and dissolve/integrate properly). At least half the bottles I got are TERRIBLE for a few reasons: 1) both the fushia and the burgundy are no where near to pink or red! They are a sludgy brown color! Not a nice brown like maybe the bottle was mislabeled, but a disgusting rotten brown color. So for our Easter egg dying, no pink! All but 3 or 4 of the remaining bottles are so dried out or old (or I don't know what the problem is) that they won't even dissolve! I heated the liquid I was trying to color, but that didn't help. I mushed the food coloring gel through a fine sieve, hoping I could break up the chunks and get them to dissolve, but instead this just created lots of tiny little clumps floating around. The couple colors that work properly (yellow, mint green) seem great and the colors are vibrant, but most of the bottles are completely worthless.

AmeriColor makes great gel pastes. They are easy to use, produce excellent coloring results and their deeper colors (red, black) don't have that weird metallic taste that one finds with other brands of food coloring. This color kit has a few colors that I'm not likely to use anytime soon, but all in all I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Wow!! Great product. We used this at Christmas to create some fantastic cookies. It only takes a very little of the color to create very bright colored icing!! Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to produce that "professional" look with their baking.

These colors are a great deal. I bought them to color macarons because I've had problems with liquid food coloring not staying bright after cooking. This worked great.

Having been very pleased with the AmeriColor #2 Color Kit that I purchased last year, I wanted to get more variety so I purchased the AmeriColor #1 Kit from GetLucky. The colors shown in the photo as well in the detailed Production Description include peach, mint green, forest green, mauve, red red, burgundy, and copper. However, the box I received, which incidentally also had 'Student' on the lable, included none of these colors, but instead colors that were also in the AmeriColor #2 kit that I already have (i.e., orange, super red, royal blue, leaf green, teal, violet, chocolate brown). Suffice to say I am both very annoyed and disappointed.

My young nephew is allergic to peanuts so I've had to re-examine all of my baking supplies. I was alarmed to discover that many of my supplies were manufactured in plants where they may come in contact with peanuts. But I'm happy to say that AmeriColor states on their website that this is not the case for them. As an added bonus, the colors are great and very easy to work with.
