I had a college teacher that worked at a dairy plant when he was in college.  His job was to operate the machines filling gallon jugs of milk.  He filled for a name brand company and then with the same milk filled for a generic brand.  When he was at the store a lady was wanting the name brand but the store was out. He told her to buy the generic and she said she couldn't because it tasted different.  He tried to tell her that it was the exact same milk but she refused to believe him.

When my husband and I first got married we tried generic everything(trying to save a buck).  Most are okay, but mayo, and ranch are BIG no no's.  They are awful. YUCK!

I'm a big believer in Excedrin to cure all aches and pains because it always works so good for me. I tried the generic Excedrin once just to try and save some money on it, and it didn't work at all! I was so disappointed I sent my husband right back to the store to buy the name-brand...so we ended up spending more money than we normally would have!

Miracle Whip. Mustard is mustard. Pickle relish is pickle relish. But you can't get it right with any old "salad dressing". It's like the old commercial said "it's just not a sandwich without the Miracle Whip".

We cannot, and will not go generic on Oreo's or toilet paper. But I have recently found that I enjoy the Kirkland brand of laundry soap is just as great as ALL, which I had used for 13+ years! Smile

I had always thought that toilet paper was a definite "no" on generics, but recently discovered that Wal-Mart brand is not too bad.  Mayonnaise has to be "Duke's".  If you are not from the South and have not tried Duke's mayonnaise I am sorry for you Smile  Also, Diet Pepsi is not the same generic.
