    What are some things that you and your family have to have the "name brand" of? Mine are:
    Blue Plate Mayo
    Kraft Cheese

    My other "pet peeve" is milk. I don't have to have brand name but I just can't drink milk if it is close to being old.

    Heintz ketchup
    Cattlemans BBQ sauce
    Claussen dill pickles
    Mountain Dew
    Rice Krispies
    Marie's Thousand Island Dressing
    Duke's Mayo

    DH insists on Texas Pete hot sauce

    Everything else is generic: canned fruits and veggies, flour, sugar, pastas, other cereals, soda, snacks, milk, juice, spices, medicine etc...

    Folger's Coffee
    Miracle Whip
    KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce
    Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, one or the other

    That is about all I can think of, because most of the store brands are pretty good. I like good ketchup, but found that Aldi's is pretty darn good, and so much cheaper.

    I have to have real Pop-tarts. Other than that, I'm not too picky. DH is definitely better at telling taste differences between brands than I am.

    Folgers or Pleasant Valley Farms coffee
    Kraft Mayo
    Campbell's soup
    Sweet Baby Rays
    Orville Redenbachers popcorn

    Ditto on the PopTarts.

    The ducks prefer the store brand cheerios, but will eat real Cheerios if they are on sale.

    Hellman's Mayo
    International Coffee Creamer, no generics!
    Coffee Mate
    generic wheat bread okay
    no generic white bread though
    Dawn dishwashing liquid, allergic to some generics, don't want to figure which ones! Rash on arms, no more!!
    Shampoo, doesn't matter, love Sauve!
    no generic toilet paper, except for Meijers premium brand is fine!
    Some generic cereal okay, others forget it.

    Most things I will do store brand, love Marsh 2% or 1% milk, don't like Dean's

    My other "pet peeve" is milk. I don't have to have brand name but I just can't drink milk if it is close to being old.[
    are you sure you are not my DH's long lost sister? He is the same way!! Theresa

    Lay's potato chips with ridges. I got the store brand once on sale and ended up throwing them away. [​IMG] I figure that since I only buy them a few times a year I might as well get the real thing.
