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.

says: In general I am not a fan of "home brands", I guess it is mostly because you tend to grow up with favourite/traditional brands like Kellog's etc and it becomes ingrained in you to keep doing it.

I think one of the reason home brand items are a turn off is because of the plain packaging - it is almost as though certain contents or in fact the appearance of the product is trying to be hidden.

I think in general I like to visualise what I am going to do (eg if baking, cooking etc) and I have always preferred the tried and tested products that I know will work out how I want them to.
