WE do the shopping now… so maybe we understand better but do you remember when our mothers would buy the store-brand version of Cheerios and we’d lose our ever-loving minds? Had we calmed down we probably would have tasted no difference but it was the point! “MOM! DO YOU WANT MY FRIENDS TO THINK I’M HOMELESS?”

We can appreciate the savings now as buying a few store brand versions of things can result in massive savings but there was just something about the NAME. We needed it.

What was your favorite store brand version of your favorite food or snack?
