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.

The company didn't make them for profit as there was little in it but it was better than another rival company getting that share of the market instead. I think that it is mainly psychological that people think that as its cheaper, it must be an inferior product.I always buy home brands and can not tell the difference in most cases.
