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.

DrMDodd says: I think for everyday items, flour, all condiments home brand services its purpose. However, as soon as you deviate from the basic ingredients and start to navigate the jams, breads and in particular coffee; cheaper "homebrand"'s are no substitute instead paying more for brands does make a difference. As the old adage goes, you gets what you pay for!
