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.

muzzle says: In my experience most home brand items are indistinguishable from branded items, eg. milk, cheese and butter. Breakfast cereals are the exception, with home brand 'corn flakes, being a bit ordinary. I buy a lot of home brand items to save money, as I am now surviving mainly on a Government pension.
