Heinz ketchup – other brands just don’t do it for me.

I only buy brand names unless it’s something I’m using to make something else but I don’t cook usually, we buy freezer food mostly.

I ONLY buy Scott toilet paper.  The best!

Kettle Baked aged cheddar chips- so good!

Love organic strawberries, milk, yogurt. 

LOVE Smart Chicken organic sausages.

Unsweetened Edensoy -is just soybeans and water- 12 grams of protein!

Organic tortillas (regular ones are filled with weird stuff).

I also use Giovanni tea tree shampoo, Nutrifix conditioner, and organic face and body lotions.

Eta: For ice cream, Ben and Jerry’s all the way!

Buying off brand products is kind of new to me, as my family never did while I was growing up. DH’s family did, however, so he’s all about it. But the things I refuse to buy off brand are:

Soda (Dr. Pepper and Coke products)

Pasta sauce (Classico)

Ketchup (Heinz)

Tootpaste (Crest)

Shampoo/conditioner (whatever I’m using at the moment)

I don’t have to have any brand named foods…unless they’re the cheapest, or there’s a sale…i.e. bogo or I have a coupon, I stick with the store brands….they’re just the same to me, and they’re good for my wallet…But the products we use, I ALWAYS buy the exact same stuff…

Lady speed stick deodorant

sunsilk shampoo & conditioner…(the old stuff, not the new chit*y stuff)

CK1 perfume…

HIS: old spice deodorant and body wash

garnier shampoo


I know people switch these things up all the time…but I’m faithful to the way I smell, and so is my sweetheart…

PopTarts, cereal, EVOO, Jiff, toilet paper, detergent, Koolaid, coffee, coffee creamer, frozen chicken strips, pet food…..I’m sure there is more, but I can’t think of it.

Real Lipton’s Chicken Noodle Soup (the dry packets) – store brand is watery and disgusting!

Cottage Cheese oddly enough. The store brand is horrible and runny *blek*

Cereal. I’ve never found a store brand that tastes anything like Honey Nut Cheerios

Dr. Pepper. b/c my DH is a snob 😀

that’s it.

pasta, sauces, cheese, milk, veggies, juice, canned fruit, mac n cheese, boxed rice, etc. I buy all of it store brand unless I have a damn fine coupon for a brand name.

My Fiance ais a bit of a brand snob, there isn’t much that man will buy generic.

I only buy Heinz Ketchup, Kraft Dinner (except bakerella’s PC white mac and cheese, which is phenomenally better than Kraft’s) Tropicana OJ, Cheerios and probably a few other things.

CEREAL! Except recently, my fiance — the king of off-brand shopping, introduced me to Kroger’s version of Captain Crunch Berries and I quite like it.
