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

Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Wheat Chex and Rice Chex

If you look closely, you can see that the Wheat Chex are a little darker than the Great Value ones and the Great Value rice chex are darker than the name brand Rice Chex. 

As for taste, there wasn't a lot of difference between the two Rice Chex.  But, the people who did the test said there was definitely a difference between the Wheat Chex and that the name brand was better. 

Cost:  $3.12 for each of the Name Brand cereals and $2.38 for each of the Walmart Great Value brand cereals.  Boxes of each type of cereal were exactly the same:  Wheat Chex were the same size for name brand and store brand and Rice chex were too.  

From now on I will buy the store brand rice chex and the name brand wheat chex if I am paying full price.  But, what I would do would be to wait until Christmas time when chex go on sale and buy a lot of them when I can get them for $1.50 per box for the name brand.

I recently bought 12 boxes of General Mills brand cereal. Between instore coupons and manufacturer coupons I paid $.48/box.

I read the boxes for ingredients. I think that the brand name had whole grain rice and the store brand did not. When I don't have coupons, I buy the generic, too - but am aware of the difference.
