What are some "brand name" items that you just can't compare to the "off brand?"

For me, I have to have name brand Cheezits, Kraft Mac and Cheese, Lay's Potato chips and Coca Cola. No off brand has been able to successfully duplicate those items, in my opinion. Pretty much everything else I can handle being off brand.

  • I forgot about Heinz ketchup. I also thought of Nestle baking Cocoa and Lawry's Seasoning salt.

  • Coke definitely! Juice is an either way for me. I always know to go to juicy juice if Im in a hurry and cant read labels as to how much sugar ect. I always know juicy juice is a good choice. I also don't like off brand luncheon meat. I think it tastes horrible. Thats pretty much all.

  • If u think about it there are differences to everything so my trick is I don't get used to the good stuff too much cuz I know my limitations, however Dove bath soap is irreplacable, LOL.
