    Is it like an urban law that Heinz Baked Beans will always taste better than Happy Shopper, that Panda Pops will never be the best fizzy drinks in town and that silicone will never make it onto page 3?

    Just wondering 'cus I just ate a packet of Snackrite Cheese Puffs and they tasted every bit as good as Wotsits.

    So your saying i actually want to be together with Paris Hilton simply cause my babe has blonde hair?


    Actually pharmacists prefer you to buy the "fake cheaper better" than the "real expensive". You need only ask for an alternative.

    Panda Pops make my teeth itch and slide slowly out me mush.
    Space Invader crisps still rawk though.

    I used to be a flier, now I ramble.

    Frequently, secondary brands are superior as well as real.

    "Real", however one defines it, is mostly better, in all circumstances, than "fake".

    That is not to say the same applies to "organic" over "synthetic". there are other examples, obviously.

    It really varies depending on what type of food it is. For pasta sauce, the generic stuff is generally pretty wretched.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Brenda you are pregnant - coal and slugs would probably taste as good as Wotsits.

    Not always, however there are some.

    Heinz Beans is one of them, as are Kellogs Frosties. These cannot be equaled, far less improved upon.

    However, as an example, I personally very much prefer ASDA brand olive oil spread to Olivio (or whatever they are calling it now).
