    What are some items you use and just don't want store brand or generic when only the name brand will do?

     I most definately prefer Heinz Ketchup,Hersheys syrup in a can, northern, white cloud, or charmin tp over others Tide or gain soap powder, dawn dishwashing liquid,cascade dishwasher jel Kraft salad dressing keebler cookies over the store brand. Sure I also buy many store brands and have no problem with them but there are just some times when store brand won't do.

    The Heinz ketchup is the only one we use. Got a free Hunts bottle once...no one would use it.  It became BBQ sauce. Dawn dish soap is the only one too! Tp is either Charmin or Northern    . Most store brands for other items are good. Kleenex, by the way,  has to  be kleenerx or puffs. Others too scratchy!

    We use very little ketchup, but it's Heinz or nothing. K.C. Masterpiece BBQ sauce, Dawn original dishwashing liquid, not sure what else I'm picky about. AM

    DH has to have a lot brand name things, but I don't.  I'll just share my list: Lubriderm lotion. Pantene shampoo. OxyClean, Hefty trash bags, Coke/Pepsi. I can't think of any others right now.

    Dr Pepper, Heinz ketchup, Scott TP, Wolf Brand Chili, Oak Farms chocolate milk, Jiffy cornbread mix and Mrs. Baird's bread.  Other than those, we're pretty flexible.
