Last month, we asked readers to tell us which food brands had earned their undying loyalty. Now it’s time to go the other way and take a look at those products — not just food this time — that you only buy in their most generic forms.
For example, I’ll never be caught dead buying anything but generic or store-brand paper towels. And I’ve found — at least in my grocery store — the store-brand nuts and chocolates are often as good if not better than the brand-name products that cost significantly more.
So what’s filling up your shopping carts with labels like “corn flakes” and “beer” that make you look like you just stepped out of a scene from Repo Man?
