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.

jtmorri says: The brand tinned fruit has disappeared even different sized tins, the variety of Campbell soups have diminished, certain pasta types and sauces are no longer stocked, full cream yoghurts are almost non existent, toilet paper brands are less and a chump lamb roast cut is non existent. The home brands don't replace everything as I don't buy them for all kinds of groceries. They are cheaper, you get what you pay for. I move on and adjust my menu and forget about the things I can no longer buy.
