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

Washing powder... Surf
Dishes... Morning fresh
Icecream.. Has to be a good brand eg bulla
Shampoo n condition... Pantene
I'm I'm sure there's more! But that's all I can think of! I have tried cheaper but just doesn't have the quality!

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
