What food products are you brand loyal to? Which ones will you buy generic?

In my house we only eat the Smart Balance Creamy Peanut Butter (generics won't cut it) but rice cakes, whole wheat noodles, milk, we buy whatever is cheapest.

  • Cereals. Soy milk. Things the kids are more picky about, like pudding, apple sauce, etc.

  • I like real cool whip, not the generic stuff. I don't buy store brand toilet paper or bread either.

  • Hubby only wants Hershey's choc Skippy pb low fat. Dunkin Donuts coffee ONLY and Coffee Mate creamers so yummy. Betty Cocker brownie mixes and Betty Crocker cake mixes and frostings. Mostly I buy generic.

  • Sliced Cheese ... MUST be Kraft. I can't stand the generic brand. It just doesn't taste like real cheese.

    Mayo MUST be Kraft Mayo ... Dukes taste like vinegar (sorry shivasgirl) and the cheaper stuff is mostly oil and just looks nasty.

    Tomato soup has to be Campbell's or Progresso but other soups, generic is okay.

    T-paper has to be Angel Soft ... hubby doesn't like anything else.

    Aluminum foil is Reynolds Heavy Duty because it really is the best.

  • Kraft Mayo
    Betty Crocker baking Mixes
    JIF peanut butter
    Veg-All Canned mixed veggies
    Hunts Spaghetti sauce
    Im sure there are a few more things Im brand specific to but thats all off the top of my head. Everything else Im not to picky on.

  • I'll go Generic or store brand on just about everything as long as the quality is there (So typically everything but TP).Aside from that it doesn't matter. Sometimes it is even better than brand name.

  • I must have Heinz ketchup and Jif peanut butter. Generic works for pretty much everything else.

  • Jif peanut butter.
    Hunt's ketchup.

    I'm "brand" loyal to some certain store brand things (canned fruit, pasta, both one store's brand), most things I'll buy whatever.

  • Usually buy by brand, just certain things like canned or frozen veggies are fine as store label.
