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.

dynamo says: As Australians we have to boycott Cole's & Woolworths home brand Products, not only will you help save what's left of our farming & Manufacturing you will hurt their Bottom line!! Over 90% of home brand labels are from China they have no food safety standards what so, ever they grow their foods in toxic soils their fish in polluted waters full of sewerage & chemicals & that's no Lie use the most powerful Tool for seeking the Truth the Internet & research yourself. Another way to help you buy Australian Or New Zealand products is to look at your bar codes esp the first 2-3 numbers if it starts with 93 its Australian if it's 94 it's NZ If it's 690,691-695 all made in China!!! Don't forget Hong Kong is China as well, 471 is made in Taiwan. Do not buy their fish either their are bread in the most disgusting polluted water I have ever seen!!! Another one is Fish which says product of Canada it is from China only the Coating & Packaging are done in Canada!! When the product says made from local & imported ingredients you can bet your life it's from china!!! So if you want to help save our jobs & protect your Health Avoid these Home Brands like the Plague & spread the word to every one!!!! A very Concerned Australian!!!
