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.

If my preferred brand is not available I will give the home brand a go but very often I am disappointed by the taste/quality. My favourite brand of herbs & spices have disappeared to be replaced by the store brand and I must confess these are good but just recently my preferred cheese is no longer available but has been replaced by store named brand. I'm fussy about the cheese so I tried to buy at another supermarket but they were out of stock. I would like to be able to make the choice of buying the named brand or the store brand but the choice has been removed.
