Grout Stain, Grout Paint, Grout Colorant: Product Recommendations Needed

i need to color the grout in my kitchen because the brown grout i put down dried almost white (almond-ish).

i used polybend sanded grout, tobacco brown, with ceramic tiles. i tried scrubbing the grout using sulfamic acid, as per the manufacturer's recommendations, to clean up the "mineral and salt deposits that had risen to to the top". that didn't do much except make the color a little more splotchy.

next i tried a sealer/enhancer that did darken the grout to the color on the bag BUT it was still splotchy after 3 coats in a test area.

other than digging out the grout and doing it again, i think coloring it would be my best option now. can anyone recommend a specific product that they have used with good results, please?!

I've used both C-Cure and Custom grout paint.

What size grout joint and did you use sanded or unsanded grout?

Edit: I see that you used sanded.

That's what it's referenced as on the C-cure website.
