Home brand vs named brand

Are there brands that you used to buy that are no longer in your local supermarket? What do you think of all these 'home brands'? Are they just as good as the named brands, are they cheaper, or are you still hankering after something in particular that just seems to have disappeared from the shelves? Give us your opinion.

Ned says: Yes absolutely. I've been doing two shops instead of one which I find really annoying because my local supermarket is removing the things I like to buy and replacing them with home brand products. Don't get me wrong I use quite a few of the home brand products and I think in most instances they are just as good. The issue for me is, the supermarket I shop in is a smaller store and the shelves are definitely filling up with home brand merchandise. I think the supermarkets should distribute the products more evenly. I've even provided feedback but to no avail. Anyway happy shopping where ever you go.
