Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby

While shopping at Wal-Mart or Publix, I often find myself grabbing the generic brand of almost everything because I can be quite frugal. This is often the better choice because of the price difference, and most times the brand name product isn't visibly that different. I practically lived off of the Publix brand of Diet Ginger Ale the first 15 weeks of this pregnancy, and don't mind grabbing a Wal-Mart brand soda if it is available.

I'm not sure if you could call them "cravings," but there are certain things that I have started to prefer. Orange anything being the main offender. I have always loved orange juice, but now I have to keep Sunny D in my fridge and a case of Diet Sunkist in the pantry.

Our last trip to the store I decided to give the cheaper brand a try:

They are both the most disgusting soda ever!! I don't have to worry about them going to waste because Eric will eat or drink anything that hasn't spoiled, but now I'm CRAVING 'good' orange and grape soda.

So, take heed, and stay away from these drinks!!! Your mouth will thank you!

What off brand have you bought, and then regretted???

Don't like generic diapers... they don't fit my baby right and then things get really yucky really fast!!! When they get a little older it doesn't really matter, but birth to 3 months or so you GOTTA have your brand!

I used to only buy store brand pop, then I went back to name brand if it was on sale. When I finally tried store brand again, I was repulsed. I know exactly what you mean!

Never buy Walgreens brand razors. HORRIBLE!!! I've tried twice now, once for hubby, and just last week for myself. A complete waste of money. They don't cut at all!

You cannot buy off brand foil. My mom taught me that, and she was right!
