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.

ninna says: I find the majority of supermarket brand items are just as good as the big brand names at half the cost. What many people don't realise is that most of it is made in the same factories as the big brand names. Some of it may be excess production & relabelled unless the supermarket wants their own recipes run on the factory line. I really like a lot of ALDI brands when I can get in there to shop & love the bill being half of what it is at other shops. The only things I don't buy from ALDI or other supermarket brands is toilet paper & cereals but the rest is all good & saves a load of money.
