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.

JEpere says: Some homebrand products seem to be ok but I would never buy homebrand baked beans or tinned fruit. They are just so insipid. I miss Starburst Berries and cream lollies more than anything. I also miss the Magnum chocolate biscuit icecream and their coffee Magnum. I hate it when well known brands release a product short term and then just take it off the shelves.
