Generic or brand name ...?

What HAS to be brand name for you (regarding anything ... food, household items, clothing, etc)?

What things do you settle with generic for?

Update:

I'll add some of my own examples ...

I usually have to get brand name cereal ... generic usually tastes like chemicals.

Same with water ... I have had gross experiences with store brand water ... I usually get Poland Spring water or Smart water now ...

I get brand name canned food and snack foods (like oreos) ...

I will buy generic chips, juice, milk, any household things like tp, paper towels, paper plates ...

I like brand name cleaning stuff ... like Kaboom.

I think all clothes have a "brand" ... but I don't buy really expensive brands. I probably wouldn't spend more than $20 on a shirt, not more than $40 on jeans ... but I won't buy crappy stuff either ... like ... I want the seams to be sewn straight ... lol.

    Brand name as far as clothes, but for example with soda, it doesn't usually matter even though I like Pepsi... guess it just depends.

    I try a lot of generic food products and I have several favorite clothing brands. I use generic drugs for OTC and RX, too.

    ohg, 1st of all, that tie-dye rocks!!! I go generic; I mean, all you're paying extra for is the brand name. If I could see/taste a/the difference, then I might go brand. But, for me, it's generic.
