Go With The Store Brand

This Sparked Me!

Store brands are often very good, so give them a try! This is especially true of things like frozen fruits and veggies, staples like flour and milk, and cleaning products, where the taste or use doesn't vary much between brands anyway.

House brands I like: 365 (Whole Foods), Wegman's, Up/Archer Farms (Target). Trader Joe's, of course, is the King of Store Brands, since nearly everything they sell is their own store brand!

    I always look at the ingrediets when comparing store brand and name brand. Most of the time, they say exactly the same thing. The one thing I splurge on is cheese. No store brand makes anything that isn't processed or as good as the name brands. Trader Joes does have good cheeses though

    I agree. My DH works for Wonder Bread and their bakeries make and sell bread to WalMart, Costco and many other places. I'm sure lots of other companies do the same thing!
