What Are Your Favorite Funny Store-Brand Item Names?

Creating house-brand products for a grocery or discount store means making a choice: you can either describe exactly what it is on the box, or riff in some way on the name of the brand-name product.

My all-time favorite store-brand cereal name is Crispy Hexagons, a generic version of Life Crispix cereal, which you can find at grocery stores under the Delhaize Group brand, like Hannaford and Food Lion.
