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.

Elizabeth says: Well my comment is, if we keep buying the home brand there will be no brands left in store.

Yes I do buy the brand name products as I can afford to at the moment. I do sometimes buy the home brands as they are sometimes better than the brand.

Yes I have noticed brands disappearing off the shelf and also the size of packaging getting smaller and the price increasing. This does not help when you are following a recipe and have to buy another one to make the difference up. That makes me unhappy!!!!
