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.

J9 says: I think home brands are just as good as name brands in most things. Canned items seem to be an exception to this and I find they tend to be of a poorer quality in taste and value for money. Loo paper in home brand doesn't really work out cheaper either as you use more because its only one ply. Margarine, milk and even bread are all just as good and heaps cheaper. I haven't really noticed anything missing but now I'll be keeping my eye out.
