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 know Heinz frozen stuff comes from New Zealand, again another Chinese dumping ground, I try and support our own farmers even if its a few cents more.
