When comparing generic and brand name foods there should only be two questions that come to mind: is there a difference in price and can you taste a difference? To the average consumer’s palate there is no difference in taste, however your wallet can certainly tell the difference in cost. The truth is in almost every case the generic item will cost less than the brand name equivalent…sometimes 30% or more. Next time you go shopping look at the generic brand of product you are buying, for everything, there is almost always a less expensive substitute and the savings can really add up week to week.
