Generic products in the grocery stores? Great Value at Walmart is high. My Essential at FoodLion is high. If they go up any more, I might as well pay for the name brands.

i noticed that too. there isn't much of a difference (yet). i don't usually buy generic but always look to see the difference and have been noticing very little difference between the name brand and the generic.

I noticed that as well, I've just been spending the few cents more for the name brand. In the end I'm only paying 5-10 more then I normally would with generic.
