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.

Nancy says: I avoid buying "home brands" everytime I find my favourite brand is missing. The self raising Flour that I had used for many years has completely left the shelves. I was devestated that something I relied on heavily was not available. Therefore I have had to change to another brand which has a reputable name.I certainly do not feel as confident with my cooking as I used to be in the past. Hopefully this one will stay around because I refuse to settle for the "no name".
