Not sure it's that much more expensive - I haven't compared them on a per ounce basis. Did you? Anyway, you'll end up using way more Wilton to achieve the same saturation, so you may end up spending more with it because you'd have to buy more coloring over time.
@Julia M. Usher No, I haven't compared them very accurately, like cost per oz of each brand.
But here is Canada, Wilton is very readily available with no delivery charges (generally) but Chefmaster usually comes in only big packs that cost at least 40 to 50 CA$. So, if one is not frequently using colors it seems like a big expense upfront as opposed to Wilton's smaller packs that cost just 10-11 CA$. But, I think like you mentioned it makes sense in terms of using a color that requires less quantity for the same effect. Also, I should do a cost/oz comparison for both colors just for my knowledge.
