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: HOmebrand products can be ok and I find that if I shop wisely I can save money. However I would never use homebrand toilet paper or alfoil. You may save money but you use twice as much so then you don't really save money at all. Most canned things like baked beans or other vegetables are so insipid looking and tasting. I hate it when known brands release 'special edition' prodcuts like STreets magnum flavours. I miss Starburst berries and cream lollies like crazy.
