Is there any food that you will not buy the store brand?

I usually buy the store brand of most things but I have to have Heinz ketchup and Cheerios. The store brands to not taste right. What about you?

  • Mac 'n' cheese is the only thing i wont buy store brand, it's just never the same. BUT, i find that ketchup is good! At leas the publix brand ketchup. Publix puts a lot of effort into their food. They are always top notch, UNLIKE kroger. I can't stand kroger brand anything! But, i will buy lots of store brand stuff from Publix. Almost everything i think...

  • Liquid coffee creamer. Peanut butter. Pretty much anything chocolate (straight, hot mix, cereal, anything for baking, etc).

  • My husband would have to have the 'blue box' mac-n-cheese up until we found out the bulk-bin cheese sauce mix at WinCo is a thousand times better than Kraft's cheese sauce. So much cheaper and SOOOO much richer! But I'm with Shell89 I'd have to go with name brand peanut butter.
