I guess it really depends what it is. With colas, i can really tell the difference if it is generic or name brand. The generic almost tastes like they skipped a step, you know the harsh fizz you get with Coke-a-cola? Its missing in the generic brand. I dont know if i am making any scense? LOL

Some items I won't buy generic. I won't buy generic mayo. I learned there is 2 types of generic. Store brand and then you have something I don't have a clue who came up with that food. A lot of store named stuff isn't that bad and taste the same as the brand name. I took the risk and tried the other kind and the food besides frozen veggies was nasty. Now if I need to get something fast like paper plates, napkins, I won't pay full price.

I shop at Aldi. This place has some pretty good foods and they are so much cheaper than national brands. There are a few products that I tried and do not like. Hellmann's is the only mayonaiise for me. I only use name brand salad dressings. But, it is really trial and error. Don't give up on generic or store brands so easily. I am very frugal and shopping at Aldi has been very good for my pocketbook.

It really depends on what it is. There are some generics I buy all of the time and others I don't want to touch. I feel pretty good about store brands, though, because I will never forget going on a bakery tour when I was in grade school. They showed us all of these hundreds and hundreds of loaves of bread baking and showed how all of the exact same bread was packaged in three different bags, two of which were the name branch (Sunbeam) and a grocery store brand at that time. Same exact bread. If a product is too specialized, I usually stick with the brand name, but for a lot of more basic stuff I think about all of those loaves of the exact same bread being put into different wrappers with different prices in the stores!
