Store spinoff thread...

The thread about sending your DH to the store got me thinking about Brand names. My DH is really big on brand . For the most part I really don't have a lot of items that have to be a specific brand. I tend to lean towards sale items. Anyhow the one brand I can't do without would be Dukes mayo. What brand name item do you really love?

Coca Cola. I really don't like Pepsi and other colas are not worth the calories either.

Land O Lakes white american cheese

I have tried multiple american cheeses from the deli and LOL is my favorite and the only one I can eat on it's own. Love it!

I almost always go grocery shopping alone but for some reason I took DH and dd with me last weekend. I sent them to the deli to get ham (didn't even need cheese) and he came back with Shoprite american cheese. At least it was white, it took me years to give up his yellow american cheese.

I am loyal to these brands:
Diet pepsi
Heinz ketchup
Scot bathroom tissue
Hellmans mayonnaise
Bumble bee tuna

There are other things where I prefer one brand but would buy another if I had to.

DH is the same way about the Land O Lakes American cheese! We could always get the prepackaged stuff in FL and TX, but we moved here to NY(he grew up here) he was WAY excited that you could get the white American at the deli!

I am fairly brand loyal when it comes to things that I feel vary from brand to brand. Like pickles...I only by Claussen. There are a few other food items that I stick to one company as well.

Now my hygiene, beauty and cleaning products are a different story. I ALWAYS buy the same brands/products.
Clorox Bleach
Dawn dish soap
Charmin TP etc...

Never even heard of Dukes Mayo

I stick with Coke or Pepsi- any other cola brand isn't worth drinking.

Coca Cola & Scott toilet tissue.
IMO Dukes mayo is not worth the price. I used to be a mayonaise snob. Would only buy certain brands. Now I'm very happy with Aldi's brand mayo, lol.

The only one that immediately comes to mind is Heinz ketchup. We will try other brands of just about anything. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

Coke Classic, it's my caffeine fix, can't live without it, don't drink coffee, and can't stand Pepsi


Another Land O Lakes White American Cheese lover..they tell me it's just food coloring that goes in the yellow and that it's the same, but you can't make me believe that one

Deutschmacher natural casing franks..I miss those so much in MD, when I lived in MA I got addicted to them..I have a friend send them to me every now and then

Hood and Breakstone cottage cheese, 2 other products I can't get here in MD that I ate all my life

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese(it's what I grew up on, so it's what I like).
Cereal has to be name brand, I'm not too picky about what brand it has to be it just can't be generic. I think generic cereal tastes stale. Classico Pesto
Kikkoman Soy Sauce
Orrington Farms chicken and beef base
Hunt's spaghetti sauce
My husband thinks this one is on par with blasphemy, but when it comes to whiskey I'm not a huge Jack fan, I'd much rather have some sort of Canadian blend. Black Velvet is my personal favorite. I think it's a lot smoother. Although I do like JD's honey flavored whiskey.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. For the most part I'm perfectly happy with store brand.

sigh, of all the brands I wish we had in Singapore, Land O Lakes cheese tops the list! I would only buy their cheddars back in the states.

A few brands I'm loyal to here or at home:

- Coke
- Kleenex
- Heinz
- Philadelphia Cream Cheese

You're not alone. I feel like the "white cheeses"(American, Cheddar) are softer... Creamier maybe?

Coke
Heinz Ketchup
Snyder's pretzels
Charmin TP
And this one is weird, but I always buy name-brand sugar. You'd think sugar is sugar, but the store brands are always lumpy.

Just the basics:
Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

DW is another who insists on Land O Lakes white. The yellow stuff of any brand just looks nasty. We tried Shop Rite, Black Bear, and others but nothing compares to, as I call it, LOL. For fake cheese food product, it's pretty good.

I hope you told your DH exactly what type of ham (and water product) you wanted from the deli. I often overhear clueless men say " half a pound of ham." You can tell the deli clerk is inwardly rolling their eyes and thinking, "hey, bozo, we got like 27 types of ham." Deli clerk then asks "what kind would you like?" Clueless man goes "uh, I don't know, wife just said to get ham." No doubt the wife B&M's about whatever kind he comes home with.

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

Duke's Mayo

Clorax bleach

Dawn dish soap

All free & clear

Cottonelle TP

Bailey's coffee creamer (if I'm at a gas station or something, and they have a different brand, I'll use it. At home, though--only Bailey's!)

I prefer Pepsi Throwback to any other soda, but prefer regular Coke to regular Pepsi. I like the real sugar in them, as opposed to corn syrup.

And I NEVER buy generic frozen vegetables. I can do Birds Eye or Green Giant, but the generics always seem icky.
