Just because you like a specific brand doesn’t make you a brand snob. However, have you tried other makers to see if your brand is really the best? Colin over at Hip2Save challenged us to a taste test of our favorite brands. I picked three items that we buy on a regular basis to see how they stand up against store brands. How does your brand stand up? You might be surprised!
We did this video a couple weeks ago. Since then I was able to get Honey Nut Cherrios for as low as $0.69 for a 17 oz. box. This is a great deal. So if you have an in-ad coupon, club card, and manufacturer coupons you can get the name brand for a lot less. This week, you can still get HNC for as low as $1.38. This price is still lower than the store brand.
One thing you should note. In San Francisco, our prices are a lot higher than most stores not surrounded by a bunch of water. So when I tell you the prices, this is what I paid at my Safeway store. Also, we were not paid to endorse any of these products. This is our own personal opinion.
