Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Putting them to the Test

Name Brand vs. Store Brand - Mac & Cheese


 All boxes were 7.25 oz.

Western Family  .50

Great Value    .50

Kroger    .59

Kroger Value    .42

Kraft    .86


I was very surprised at the results.  Three people tried them all and all liked different ones.  No one like the Kroger Value Mac & Cheese.   The regular Kroger Mac & Cheese was darker than the others.  Western Family was saltier than the others. NO ONE PICKED KRAFT as their first choice.  I must say I was really surprised because we have bought Kraft for years now and wouldn't buy anything else.  We tried a store brand years ago and no one liked it, so I didn't give it another try since then.  Of the three people that tried the different brands, one chose Kroger regular, one chose Western Family and one chose Great Value.  If you eat Mac & Cheese regularly, maybe it would worth trying a few yourself.  They aren't too expensive and if you really don't like the store brand, they have a guarantee or your money back in most stores.
