We buy a lot of generic products.  As a matter of fact, there are some items that are generic that we prefer over the name brand.

We mostly buy generic but only from Target. Their brand is excellent in most items. There are a few items that I won't get the store brand in..Miracle Whip, certain cereals like cinnamon toast crunch and a xouple other things but not much.

I'm always willing to try the generic versions and I will keep buying them if they taste the same or better. But there are just somethings that are horrible from the generic brand. Apple sauce, shredded motzerella cheese (fine if its on pizza, gross if its straight from the bag) and canned green beans are three that I will not go generic on.

I dnt buy too many generic foods because if you label read, most are from substandard ingredients. However, I always buy OTC generic drugs.

I don't mind most generic products. Dh is a little more picky about it though.

Im the opposite because for me things are just what they are so brand really doesnt matter to me.  A tomato is a tomato, mustard is mustard, milk is milk, etc.  I do prefer Heinz ketchup over Hunts, so that I do buy particularly.
