What are your favorite "off brands"???

Someone asked what are name brand items you have to have...and I was wondering if anyone preferred a store brand product over the name brand?

For me I like the wal-mart version of Hamburger Helper way better!!!! I also prefer Kroger's cheap macaroni and cheese...spiral, three cheese...etc!

  • Some of Walmart brand products are awesome, especially they're salsa! Surprisingly, the Walmart brand is the only one I have found to make Back Bean and White Corn salsa, I'm addicted!!

    I got to looking at my Walmart brand chloroseptic spray the other day, and it's actually produced by Chloraseptic brand, but sells for cheaper. Sometimes off-brand is the same as name brand if you read the label.

  • I love Walmarts liquid fabric softener - it is wonderful! I also prefer to purchase all our OTC meds in the store brand because they are exactly the same as the name brand, work just as well, but save a ton of money over the year. Garbage bags! Walmart sells the BEST 33 gallon garbage bags. If you like trail mix then you will LOVE Walmart's trail mix with the Sam's name right on the bag (we buy them at Walmart store). They have different types of trail mixes and my favorite type is the Indulgent trail mix - soooo yummy!!!
