Thursday, January 28, 2010....
I've decided to make Thursdays my "Question of the Week" day because I always have questions and am always interested in people's answers.
This Week's Question:What grocery item will you not buy the generic version of?
Last week, I asked hubby to pick up some Q-Tips. I told him, Q-Tips, not generic brand and you know what....he came home with Johnson & Johnson cotton swabs.
Ummm...not generic, but NOT Q-TIPS.
When we went to COSTCO, I noticed they sell Q-Tips and snatched up my 4 pack (smart purchasing people at COSTCO) and when we got home had to show him the difference (he probably couldn't care less, but I wanted him to know I wasn't crazy).
I told this story at my last food pantry party and didn't realize that are other items people feel brand name is the only way to go. I think peanut butter, mayonnaise and ketchup were mentioned (specially, Peter Pan, Hellman's & Heinz).
What's your must have brand name product?
