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.

PGS says: Depends what it is. We prefer Jatz, but will buy the Aldi one sometimes.
Somethings there should be no real difference, but pastry & dough items can have a wide difference in flavour.
Some canned products have more water/juice/sauce as a home brand.
Pizza should be much the same everywhere - the Aldi one we bought once & NEVER again. It was disgusting. The branded ones are usually light on toppings, so by the time that is corrected & re-heated you may as well have bought Pizza Hut or Dominos. Good thing I prefer to make mine.
