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.

Lexington says: At first it was all just a cheaper alternative, but now they are putting in that extra effort to advertising them as the 'better alternative.' All it comes down to is these big named grocery stores trying to make more money off common every day things and so they can afford to be a few cents cheaper in the end because of how much money the earn hourly.
