10 products where generics are always worse than the brand name
This list was inspired by my dad's purchase of the wrong kind of cream cheese. *Shakes head*
I think artisanal versions of any of these products are probably better than the brand-name version, but here I'm just comparing brands and generics.
A classic choice!
2. Cream Cheese
Store-brand coke... no thank you
4. Fig Newtons
I really dislike Fig Newtons to begin with, never mind the off-brand version...
The store brand just doesn't taste fresh
6. Ice Cream
Not only is the quality worse, but the flavors often are too.
7. Boxed Mac n' Cheese
Kraft, Annie's: take your pick, but don't pick the generic.
My understanding is that generic frosted mini-wheats are particularly bad
Ketchup, mustard, mayo... all of the above
10. Tootsie Rolls
I think this applies to a lot of candy
