We asked you....what is your favourite brand? and here are the results!


Chocolate, coffee and innovative electronic products which make our lives easier!


Those are the winners as voted for by you in our recent best brand competition, and yes, they are products not brands, but could there be a connection between our favourite brands and our favourite things!?

Despite our Aussie pride in all things home grown, it’s the big international brands that feature at the top of your list. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the overall winner is Apple. Words used to describe Apple include innovative, useful, super easy, and with advanced technology. The other electronics brand rated highly is Samsung, which according to you offers great products, and quality at an affordable price. Not electronics, but big international sports brand Nike is also up there in the top five – described as stylish, affordable, and with good quality products which last.

Now on to the yummy stuff! Chocolate and coffee brands are big winners. In fact Cadbury was second on your list overall; a close runner up to Apple. This well known chocolate manufacturer has many fans – chocolate is obviously the way to our hearts! Cadbury represents happiness and comfort to you, and is loved quite simply because Cadbury chocolate is yummy! Of the coffee brands, old favourite Nescafe gets the highest number of your votes.

The best of the rest:

Of the Aussie brands, you are liking Coles, Supre, and super-comfortable Bonds. Several of you clearly have expensive tastes – Chanel, Christian Dior, and Aston Martin! Clothing brands include Country Road, Forever New, Pumpkin Patch (for kids) and Target. And other sports brands Adidas and Puma are also liked for their great quality long lasting clothes. And last but not least and narrowly missing out on a top five spot - Coca Cola! This brand is popular not only for its products, but also its fun cool creative marketing and advertising.

frilly says: I have an Apple Mac Pro Laptop & Ipod.
my favourite instant coffee is Nescafe Cappuccino. My husband has been turned off coffee machines by the price & he heard early on some bad reports & no matter what what he has heard since will not change his mind & buy one.
Unfortunately I cannot get out alone to buy one now.

Generally I won't advertise for any of them. I have branded t-shirts & such from 1989+ that are still unused. Reply

frilly says: I am a Plus Size lady so have to search quite often for clothes I like & want to wear. They are quite often Kita Ku, My Size, Lucabella, Autograph, Swish, Box 2, Anna Scholtz. plus a few more.
They differ in price and choice of suitability. I just wish it was possible again to just walk in and buy off the peg. It does not help being the size I am, this you probably think is something I should really get to & do something about but unfortunately it is not easy for me.
You have heard that before too I think? It is often said but I take prednizone for some of the illnesses I have. Not only does, it itself put weight on, it seems to encourage you to long for sweet things to eat. I have to watch what I eat & exercise, that is difficult as I am also disabled. Exercise has to be done on a bed or sitting on a chair, walking is too hard as my feet are full of osteoarthritis, even socks hurt at times.
There are times I am successful, I lose a few kilos, then I hurt myself or I am ill again, back to bed. Seemingly several days in bed & my weight is up again & we struggle on. My thanks go to the fact there has been no weight added.
Any other brands of clothes you know I will be pleased to learn, I do have a few more I try if anyone else needs any.

I'm going nuts over Samsung now but still have heaps of apple products in my life like Apple TV, iPad and my fiancé has a mac laptop. Nothing quite comforts like a delicious, creamy Cadbury chocolate though. :) Reply

Cristina says: My favorite brand is Portmans and Sports girls if we think at the quality of the product.I like Forever new as well but I bought a bag last year and last me 3 months. It was my favorite and I got upset not being able to use it more. This is not a cheap brand and they should invest more in quality.
What's yours opinion about it. Reply

Kessa1959 says: That's really surprising about Apple as they only have a small percentage world wide compared to other systems. Bonds may be an Australian brand however I don't support them after they sacked their employees in preference to going overseas for their manufacturing.

Our son who is an engineer will have nothing to do with Apple and neither will his friends however I know that those that love Apple wouldn't have anything else.

I find Cadbury interesting too as there are better quality brands. I personally don't buy Cadbury anymore since they became Halal friendly Reply

Minou says: My favourite electronic brand is definitely Samsung, especially Samsung Galaxy S4 which comparing with iphone got better, bigger screen and better camera. And what is also important the battery stays longer than in iphone. Favourite Chocolate brand is for sure Cadbury especially caramel candies with delicious chocolate inside, which unfortunately I can't find in Australia, but are definitely in Europe. Reply
