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.

I still enjoy home brand products and I'm more than happy to purchase them, but the biggest difference I find is when you go back and actually buy the named brand again. For example, if I change to home brand snakes, still quite yummy yes, but then go back and buy a pack of starburst snakes, suddenly the starburst tastes better than it did before because you compare it to something else! So basically, yes I enjoy home brand things and I will buy them but name brand quality is and will always be higher!
