I disagree about table salts. Even with the same distributer, they have different elemental concentrations that differ based on which mine or shore they were taken from.

Something to think about is the qulity of the ingridients in generic food brands, to deliver such a cheap product they could use unhealthy resources
elisha hancock (2 months ago)
It depends on what generic brand and what it is sometimes it’s nastier sometimes I cannot tell and then in some rare cases taste better than name brand there’s a brand in the Chicago area call vitners and there cheese twist taste 100 times better than Cheetos and same thing there cheese popcorn was way cheesier than okie dokie and Aldo use to have the Clancy’s bacon cheddar potato skins that I’d take 100 times over Friday’s
Lone Surviver (2 months ago)
It depends I actually found a off brand apple Jack's I like better. But I've tried some off brand Cheetos that were absolutely terrible. When it comes to coffee I just need creamer and Carmel don't care where as long as it's fresh. Some foods off brand are good some no. Off brand mouth wash has the same ingredients as Listerine.

In my country Tortillia chips taste the same as doritos, and the non named chips was cheaper.
Molly Sandera (1 month ago)
+Skaarlets well my country doesn't have much off brand colas either. i have found one that was 5 times more expensive than Coca-cola or Pepsi. i never bought it though, and i don't like cola anyway.... i guess there just isn't a demand for these, but i have seen many generic sweets sold in stores often, and some savoury snacks, which was a part of my life since childhood.
Skaarlets (1 month ago)
+Molly Sandera Idk for us doritos are more expensive than generic
Molly Sandera (1 month ago)
too bad in my country doritos is 90% the only option, and some other options i have found were more expensive than doritos, because they were imported from farther away

keep in mind when it comes to drugs, in certain cases the inactive ingredients in pills play a role in helping more efficiently metabolize the active ingredient and control how it is absorbed into the body. These inactive ingredients are a lot of times specific to no name or brand name(meaning that sometimes the no name might work better than brand name).

"Generic brands" can save you a lot of money. I tend to use generic brands when grocery shopping except for a very few exceptions as the generic brands are typically as good or even better than the name brands. For example, the Clover Valley (Dollar General) generic brand for Cocoa Crispies tastes a lot better than Kelloggs Cocoa Crispies, and is much cheaper too. However, for canned potatoes, Dole is the only brand I will get as the other brands I've tried clearly use lower grade potatoes or don't go through the effort of making the end product better. When it comes to corn, any brand works. Same with sweet peas and pinto beans (and other beans). Store brand milk tends to taste better to me than name brand milk for some reason. Pet milk tastes funny while Food Lion brand or Walmarts brand tastes fine. When it comes to cheese, don't cheap out, get real cheese. Totally worth it. For bread, Dollar Generals store brand bread is great for the price (about half the price of other brands). Basically, try the store brands and see if you like them. If you like them, keep using them and save money.

Blackwood (3 months ago)
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.
