Appetizing fonts

Hello all! I'm currently in a package design course, and I'm redesigning Dr. Oetker's Mug Cake packaging. It's not all that bad as it is, I just needed to get a product that has a package within a package. What I'm wondering now is, what would be a good font for the product name? After strolling around the grocery store for awhile, I found that similar products (like Betty Crocker's Warm Temptations) used a sort of handwritten script font. Makes sense. They definitely give that feeling of indulgence and decadence. I even found an example of one I find suitable. But for the sake of maybe doing something different, I figured I'd ask the ultra knowledgeable bunch here for some other possible options. I want some of your smarts to rub off on me. And for the record, I can't ask my teacher. She used Bleeding Cowboys for her friend's logo.

So maybe a font where the counters
are a different shape than the outsides.
Like Ad Lib. :-)

Ahh definitely an interesting idea! I would have never thought of going that route.

Hoppsan? :O What does that mean?

It is Norwegian or possible Swedish and means “oops”.

Taking into consideration Fancier Script's (MyFonts) description, "Inspired by sign painters of the past," you might check out what A&S Signfonts has to offer. http://artandsignstudio.com/fontmenu.html

I first saw 'Hoppsan!' in a Swedish-drawn (I think) pictorial about the SR-71 Blackbird. The meaning seemed to be 'Whoopsie!' as it was used in a panel about sudden changes in altitude during course changes in very thin air.

So that's what it means! Thanks for the clarification haha.

And thanks for the link Theo! I'll have a look see on there.
