I shop at Aldi. Everything there tastes pretty close to the "real thing", but for pennies on the dollar. There are almost zero name brands there, but everything is great. I particularly love when they put stuff that I like on clearance...I bought five cases of knockoff 5-hour energies there. For $6. Each one was on sale for $.10 because they were expired. By two days.

Sometimes why not? Especially if you never tried the knockoff brand before, you never know it might turn out to be good ^^.

Exactly! Being in a low income situation and having to support others doesn't allow you to be picky

Some of the "Knock off" brands even taste similar or in rare cases better! I will warn you though, and this is for everyone in Crunchyroll. DO NOT BUY KNOCK OFF MAYO. You have been warned.

I agree completely! Especially with the mayo part! ._.
Although I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the peanut butter. Expected something that tastes like Peter Pan, got something that tastes like JIF.

Check for spiders.

For all you know, they could be replacing your delicious Coco Puffs with that Cocoroos crap.

Would've been nice to write "I too like to live dangerously"

It sounds so me.

But it turns out I'm not as cool as I think I am.

I leave all the nasty stuff for others and keep the good stuff for myself (Y)

Generally no, I tend to find that the imitation products don't taste nice. On the other hand, sometimes some stuff is better than the real thing.

I use the generic/non-name brand for most things, with a couple of exceptions. Most of the time, I don't notice much difference, and it's a lot cheaper. I'd rather keep that money for something else.

My town's grocery stores have some pretty good knock-off brands, actually. Some of them are better than the originals, to a certain extent.
