Publix store brand unless name brand is on sale and is cheaper. For most things, the family likes the generic better. Except for peanut butter. I have to have JIF...I'm a choosy mom

The Kirkland brand (Costco) beer is not bad. And the kirkland brand margarita mix is as good as any.

365, Trade Joe's, Archer Farms and UP and UP for us.

We buy very little packaged foods - but what we do is usually the above.

A lot of brands are that way. I remember my Mom being told (by someone who would be in the know) that it was fine to buy a particular store brand (this grocery chain no longer exists-was bought out and re-branded) of laundry detergent. It was Tide, just with a different label. The label truly was the only difference, they even used the orange bottles!

I've been gobbled by ADisneygirl!

Maybe it was just my rotten luck or something but I dislike kroger corn, found pieces of cob, bad kernals, lots of yucky stuff in it. Now meijer brand I like. I usually buy store brand also but have found I didn't like meijer laudry soap. DH likes kroger pop tarts over national brand. I buy store brand contact lens solution but every once in while like to use name brand just seems like it refreshes my contacts better ( granted I'm sure it's not exact same stuff)
