Ketchup is something that we've tried the store brand for, and did not like it. Actually, we find that Heinz is the best where ketchup is concerned.


Also I tried the walmart brand oven-ready lasagna noodles. Those did not turn out well. I do like the barilla kind but only buy those with a coupon and on sale.

Mine is Kroger Spaghetti Sauce and Meijer Spaghetti Sauce... I prefer Prego or Ragu. Did not like the off brand of their sauces.

Fortunately, I've been pretty happy with most store brands.

Ziploc style storage bags. I bought a store brand and every third bag's zipper didn't work. And chicken nuggets...I don't know what was in them, but it sure didn't look like anything I'd let my family eat! Straight to the trash.

For us it is store brand ketchup, mustard, and generic Dr. Pepper. Otherwise, we have had pretty good luck with store brand/generic products.
