  • generic is fine with me. There's a few items I'm picky on but that's from trying that particular generic item and genuinely preferring the other kind.

  • In most cases I will buy generic but somethings I won't. I don't buy generic pet food, or pizza rolls, juice, toilet paper, laundry detergent, along with many other things. I love most of the Kroger brand stuff. They have great milk, yogurt, and pudding. For some things I will pay more for quality but a lot of things generic is just find for me.

  • Oh generic please.

  • Depends on what it is. Recently one of our stores had a deal & you'd get free generic cheese slices - they were gross! It'll be Kraft from now one, but the generic was free. Now, we know why...
    I mostly buy generic or will at least try it.
