Store Brands...

 Do you buy store brands or name brands?

I buy mostly store brands, but some things just do NOT taste as good.

I'm a little aggrivated because I just went to make a PB&J sandwich and realized that DH had switched my Smucker's Grape jelly out for Great Value Grape Jelly without asking me if it would be ok. *whimper* It's ok, but it's just not the same!

 i buy store brands but not jelly and never ever great value(walmart is inferior in everything, IMO) but Our Family(in some local chains and quite possible a national private label) is really good for cereal, jam, peanut butter, milk, cheese, just about anything EXCEPT mayonnaise...It Must Be Hellmans.  Even Kraft, too sweet, MUST BE Hellmans, LOL

I'd say a good mix of both. I like shop rite orange juice but Apple n eve organic all natural apple juice, I like the big bags of cereal better their cheaper and taste just as good, and Kraft Mac n cheese. Walmart fresh to go pizzas. Overall what I save I can splurge on name brand.

I will not touch safeway brand for almost everything. Its awful!!! I am very picky with my food. I like cheap though but taste outweighs a couple cents.
