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.

With many regards I would like to think many Australians try to shop locally or purchase produce of Australia and I think that is a concern of home brand products is the thought of where does this produce come from (National or international) and what hidden preservatives or extras are in the cheaper item but I think although their may not be any upfront differences in the taste, ingredients or amount with home brand compared to Named brands but I think the quality and support of Australian produce can be disregarded to just save that extra dollar, and in a future economy I think that extra dollar is a dollar worth spent if it is supporting home grown and produced products
