We all have our favorite name-brand foods — Kraft, Skippy, Campbell's, you name it. October's issue of Consumer Reports revealed results of a taste test between some famous household names and lesser-known store brands. In fact, by choosing store brands, consumers would be saving about 30 percent of their grocery cash, the magazine said. Do you think you know better? Take the quiz to guess which one tastes better. You'll be surprised!
The other day my dad and I got into a discussion about the generic brand food at supermarkets. We both purchase items — such as flour, napkins, and bottled water — from 365 Everyday Value and Western Family. However, there are other ingredients we most definitely will not buy generic; butter, cheese, and cola come to mind. Since I'm sure you have similar grocery store habits, I want to know about them.
Which food products will you buy generic and which generic items do you avoid?
