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.

Not sure why I haven't had the courage to just try a home brand equivalent, but maybe this discussion has spurred my curiosity and I'll just take the plunge. As for other products, I find home brands to be great, to be honest, and sometimes I am on a tight budget so home brands are a life saver. Unfortunately, I have noticed a trend, particularly with Coles Supermarkets, to scale down the choice of named brand products... not liking that very much, I'm afraid.
