The same brand of red food coloring is about 4-5 dollars for 1 ounce at my local grocery store. To make red velvet cupcakes, I use a full ounce, so purchasing this was an obvious step. The color is deep and rich. Keep in mind that this is liquid and not paste food coloring. I prefer to use gels for other items like frostings and macarons, but for certain purposes liquid is ideal!

My 10yo son loves to bake and his favorite recipe is Red Velvet Cake. His requires a LOT of red food coloring, more than you typically can find in the little squeeze bottles at the grocery store. Even the larger Walmart bottle we found did not quite have enough for the recipe. It was great to find this big bottle on Amazon and at a surprisingly reasonable price. It will make several Red Velvet Cakes.

I'm a creative Mom and I'm always using products in new ways.
I use this particular blue food coloring at a tool to get my kids in the bath at bath time. Previously we were using crayola bath drops and getting the same effect but using all the blues out of the pkg first. Now, instead of buying bath drops we use two drops of this blue offspring to tint their bath tub water and the playtime just continues on into the tub. Its much cheaper and is lasting so much longer than any other bath coloring products we have tried.

I bought this because I am dyeing yarn. And ling in a small apartment, I really don't have the room for separate pots for dyeing like your should if using conventional or natural dyes and the toxic mordants and associated chemicals. It is food safe, so I feel less nervous if I use the same pot or jar for food. It is also cheaper to buy larger bottles of food coloring then to buy several boxes of the droppers. I almost wish the Neon colors came in one ounce bottles.

First things first, the bottle came with a broken cap. The lid part was broken right off from the rest of it, so it would have started evaporating through the small hole right after I broke the seal, but I fixed that. It just so happened that I had the cap for a bottle of coca-cola lying around, and (after washing it off) it happened to fit perfectly. It did, however, make it more difficult to pour the coloring out more carefully without the tinier hole on the real cap. So, if yours comes with a broken cap, a coca cola cap will mostly fix that. Pepsi probably won't work because Pepsi << Coca-cola (In physics, << means so much less than that the other one isn't worth consideration).

Anyways, I used this food coloring for fountain pen ink, so what I will say next probably won't apply for cooks and whatnot.
It's a great red, excellent flow, and had no terrible issues with any of my pens. I don't have any REALLY high end pens, but if it works for mine (most expensive ones I have are a Lamy Safari and a Hero 100, the second of which was a gift), it should work for a meisterstuck or something. It typically dries actually a tad faster than the average real ink, but not even comparably as fast as Bernanke blue or other quick dry inks.
One thing to be noted is that food coloring is not waterproof at all whatsoever. I put this color with some other real inks I had (mostly noodler's, but only a few deemed "bulletproof") on one sheet of paper, then put it under the tap, and in an instant, the food coloring ink was gone (well, not that fast, but you get the idea). This could be detrimental, or useful in some way, if you're worried about stains.
If you want a writing sample with McCormick Red, comment below and I'll upload one. Otherwise, I'm just far too lazy to post a writing sample that people don't want to see anyway.
