Is there something that you buy that you swear by the name brand even if it is available generically?

John will only use Hellmans Mayonaise, and Heinz Ketchup. 

I am expensive in my snobness: Charmin TP, Tide detergent, and Downy softner. Then again that is mainly due to allergies. 

Everything else is store brand unless the brand name is onsale and I have coupons. 

My shampoo, face scrub etc is brand names, but I only get it when I need it and have a coupon.

I only use dove soap. Hellmanns mayo. And boars head cold cuts. And no store name cheese as they are always too salty and don't melt right.
Can't think of anything else right now but may be others.

I agree with the other ladies about the Hellman's Mayo. I was only buying Heinz ketchup until recently...now I buy generic but I squeeze the generic into the Heinz bottle and I'm the only one that knows the difference.

Off the top of my head, Cheerios.  I buy 99% generic cereals because Wegman's cereals are very good, but generic Cheerios just don't cut it.  Something weird about their texture.

I have nothing against generic mayo (I mix it with sour cream anyway) or ketchup (I don't eat ketchup, and nobody else complains).  I use Tide, and brand name cookies (Oreos, Keebler's, Chips Ahoy).

True...I can't bring myself to buy generic Oreos.
