    Default Are you a brand snob with groceries??

    I've come to realise that I really am a bit of a brand snob when it comes to certain grocery items. I will never buy different brands - I usually always buy a few of the following when they are in sale so I get to have champagne taste on a beer budget so to speak. So here we go:

    Peanut butter - Kraft
    Spaghetti/baked beans - Heinz
    Tomato sauce - Heinz ketchup
    BBQ - master foods
    Jam - st dalfours red raspberry conserve
    Butter - devondale soft
    Wraps - mission flavoured
    Tea bags - Lipton
    Air freshener - Glen 20 linen crisp
    Toilet paper - Kleenex cottonelle
    Tissue - Kleenex aloe Vera
    Toothpaste - original Colgate total

    Anything else I'll buy whatever is cheapest at the time.

    So do you have items you won't stray from?? (I don't buy all of these things regularly but if I do that's what I buy).

    Oh yes, me too.
    Peanut butter - must be Kraft
    Toilet Paper - must be white Kleenex
    Jam - Bonne Maman (and I was soooo happy to see this on shelves in France recently )
    Bread - must be bakery bread
    Ice Cream - hmmm, I will admit to being partial to a few brands here but very partial to Connoisseur

    My cat's are! Lol.. They will only eat Whiskas and it can't be "loaf" style; they will only eat casserole or salmon with chicken
    As for me, not really. I do stick with the more quality versions of certain products as I have tried the cheaper varieties and don't find them as nice.
    Tuna- has to be Serena
    Ice cream- Peters
    Tomato sauce- I actually only ever buy the no name variety- Heinz etc are too overpowering/rich for me
    Bread- Burgen light rye is a favourite.
    And Glen20 fresh linen for air freshener/surface disinfect.

    I can't say we are big brand snobs. We make the trip to woolies every week and then Aldi as well. Off the top of my head we always get
    Nappies/wipes - Huggies
    leggo's or dolmio pasta sauce
    Always woolies for fruit, veg and meat too.

    Everything else like household and pantry we get at Aldis and save a fortune doing so. Love it

    I buy mainly organic grocery items when I can ( flour, peanut butter, dried fruit, stocks, sauces etc. ) and am more fussy about what's in the product over what brand , but there are certain brands we are snobby about and won't buy any other - like A2 milk, nudie juice, lurpak butter and Santa Vittoria mineral water, Joseph olive oil and South Cape feta plus I have a great butcher , fish monger and fruit shop so would never buy those things from a supermarket
