The only reason they're cheaper is because they pay less or nothing for advertisements, they don't have a patent and design/packaging might be less quality. Everything else is mostly the same. My dad used to work at a bread/pastries factory where they'd made cookies and pack them for a number of different stores, but they were also basically exactly the same

For dairy products, check the plant code on the wrapper, for milk and cheese and butter and yogurt, they are almost always the same code, meaning they are the exact same product

I like to get the off-brand snacks that rip off the other snack because thet rip off brand tries harder to make their snack better than the original.They usally do this by adding more of the thing that makes the snack palatable.

I actually get the off brand stuff cause the bag is bigger with less air and it’s cheaper. For example Cheetos Puffs is more expensive than Chester’s Puffs or like just the stores brand the Chester’s and store brand are cheaper bye 2 dollars

There is a difference with no name drugs for some people, as some people will react to the different filler ingredients used.

As a recent graduate, I tend to gravitate towards cheaper generic stuff. It really is surprising how close some of these products can get to their name brand counterparts. A "party size" bag of Walmart potato chips costs less than a regular size bag of Lay's and they're actually pretty good. For some other items, though, I'll definitely stick to the name brand, like sodas. I like Pepsi and Vernor's and I haven't been able to find a cola or ginger ale to match those.
