What are some store brand products that you like a lot?

I am interested in saving some money by cutting back on national brands at the grocery store. I already buy some store brand stuff but I'm looking to see what other people have tried out and really liked. What is the store brand and product that you would recommend?

  • I save a lot of money by buying the bags of off brand cereal instead of the name brand. They're good and a lot of them are even MORE fortified w/vitamins and minerals than the big brands.

  • I use save-a-lot peanut butter it is made by peter pan. It tastes the same too. Just start experimenting with the generics at the store that you use. You will try it and decide whether you like it or not and whether to buy it again. We use a lot of generics and I only get name brand when it is bogo and I have a coupon otherwise it isn't worth it to me to spend the extra.

  • I agree with coala. You will be suprised to find that store brands are canned and manufactured in the very same facilities as name brands. Experiment with the brands at your local store. You will find that most are quite acceptable, but if you run across anything that you do not care will just remember to mark that off the list for the next time.

    I use many of the Sav A Lot brands as well. I wish they would sell giant bags of flour, although the regular sized bags are reasonably priced. : )

  • i use great value brand (walmart) for almost everything...heres my list haha: canned veggies & fruits, boxed pastas, boxed potatoes, milk, chips, sour cream, butter, chicken breasts, frozen fries, frozen pizza, frozen hamburger patties, bread, buns, refried beans, etc.

    my list of name brand stuff is a lot shorter. i will not buy no-name ranch, pb, ketchup, or mayo. it really is a trial & error type deal. some things save me so much money, but the taste is so off its not worth it. but ive found that as a whole generics are just as good if not better!
