I'm curious as to what everyone's "gotta have" brands are. For example Ketchup: Heinz or Hunts? Other things might be seasonings, barabcue sauce, mustard, fish coating, ect., ect.

A couple that come to mind for me is:

Beef Flavored Rice a Roni: The perfect side dish. Just love it. Not chicken, not mexican, not any of the other gazillion other flavors. Stock up when they are 10 for 10 bucks.

Sweet Baby Rays Barbacue Sauce: Won't buy anything else - Cub or Rainbow (can't remember which) has em 10 for 10 bucks right now.

Schwan's Ice cream - They put the cream in ice cream.

Reddi Whip - Gotta top off that Schwans Ice cream

Hegges Pizza - If I don't pick up Papa Murphys, order Broadway, or make my own, its going to be a Heggies.

Miracle Whip - Try it on a peanut butter sandwich. Can't do Hellmans real stuff.

Valveeta Cheese - Nothing like a grilled cheese with valveeta dipped in Heinz ketchup. Or Macaroni & Cheese. Or Chili Cheese Dip. What can I say? Grew up on it when we didn't have to eat the free government stuff in the 70's.

None of this stuff would fit into the healthy eating thread, but.....................

I will agree on a few of your choices:

Schwan's Ice Cream

Miracle Whip - a sandwich just isn't a sandwich without Miracle Whip (although I personally would draw the line at peanut butter!)

A few others (although I could go on and on):

Heinz ketchup - hubby has a Norwegian stomach, so this is a safe "spice" for him smile

HyVee Cut Green Beans - they taste much better than the major brands

Bird's Eye Baby Sweet Peas and Baby Gold and White Corn - both taste like you picked them out of the garden.

Schwan's Asparagus spears - the best frozen asparagus I have had

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips - both the semi-sweet and the 60% cocoa are excellent in baked goods or straight out of the bag

Barilla Plus pasta - especially the Angel Hair

Try to stick with General Mills cereals since they are a Minnesota company, and I would like to help my sister keep her job. smile

I buy what IMO tastes the best and disregard the price. I'll stock up if it is on sale. I am a firm believer in "you get what you pay for". My wife buys whatever is on sale and says she can't tast any difference...

So, I try to do a lot or most of the grocery shopping so I can get what I want. I don't seem to get too many complaints either.

Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce is awesome stuff. My daughter absolutely loves it. She would put it on anything. I have a great pic of her face covered with it.

Definitely Heinz Ketchup, thats a no brainer.

Kemps New York Vanilla ice cream...the best (for vanilla anyway).

Mug Root beer.

and on and on and on.

Oh, shop Aldi's all the time. But ketchup has to be Heinz for sure. BBQ sauce I love the Famous Daves sweet and sassy. Most things can go generic for me though.

One of my pet peeves is when my wife tries to save money and buys the cheapest/generic flavoring or spice. Then throw in low fat/low cal and what do you have??! [PoorWordUsage]!!! And the fact is that a bottle of syrup or ketchup or mustard or xxxx lasts a long time, if you save 60 cents on a something that lasts 6 months, is that worth eating [PoorWordUsage]???

I finally cured her of that by not eating some of the poor quality stuff she bought and buying my own, then we'd have two bottles of it in the frig for months. She finally started buying the brand name stuff.

Aldi's = inexpensive grocery store. They just built one on the East Side off of 94 and Ruth. Basically they stock store overloads.

Wimmers dogs, Claussen pickles, Skippy Super Chunk. As a big fan of cottage cheese, I used to be a Wells guy, but it seemed that they have been turning out some nasty batches. Got hooked on Walmart brand 1%. Best stuff out there. Nice and runny!!

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
