    What's your view?

    For me it depends on the beverage.

    For cola I'd definitely rather have a Coke, Pepsi, or RC than some store brand. Not that their stuff is putrid, it just doesn't do it for me.

    Dr Pepper just hasn't been equaled by the store brand stuff. Mr Pip actually tastes a lot like the stuff that Kroger sells (Dr K).

    Cherry Coke and Wild Cherry Pepsi are light years better than store stuff - store brands usually taste like cherry cough syrup. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

    For root beer I always go with A&W or that IBC stuff, though most store brand root beers seem to be decent enough to stomach. Not so sure about Mug in comparison.

    Store brands definitely get the nod when it comes to fruity flavors. Grape and Orange kick the snot out of the Minute Maid stuff or Slice. Plus you can get all kinds of other funky stuff that name brands don't touch.

    Personally I prefer coke myself, but when throwing parties, go with the private label (store brand).

    I'm still looking for a generic beer, if that's made anymore [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    Stuff like over-the-counter drugs, go with the private label. When you compare, it's exactly the same. There will be times where it can't quite match up with something like Coke, but usually there's no difference.

    i like the name brands way better. the store brands just don't taste very good, imo. although you're right about the fruity flavors, but i never get those.

    A lot if times the store brand stuff is the exact same as the name brand stuff, they just package it as store brand so people who normally cant afford it can afford it.

    I don't know about the drinks, but the drugs are from separate manufacturers.

    I agree. I'll take Pepsi or Coke over a store brand anyday.

    Name brand all the way. I tried Sam's cola once and almost got sick. I haven't had any off brand drinks that are good.
