Somethings you just can't buy generic...

Went to Wal-mart and was in a rush and instead of buying BRAND Named Q-tips, I bought the Equate brand.* What a MISTAKE!!!* I should have spent the extra $2.00 and gotten the Q-tips.* I swear there are just somethings you can't buy generic..*

Anything else??

I can't buy store brand orange juice. It has to be Tropicana for me.

Re: Something you just can't buy generic...

I typically like generic things... I get ShopRite brand cotton swabs and they do ok... haven't tried equate "brand" yet. As for what I cannot take in generic brand - dishwasher soap. Nothing blasts dishes cleaner than good ol' Cascade!

Generic toilet paper is not the win.

What exactly was wrong with the generic q-tips? I hope the bud didn't break off in your ear?! That would suck.

By far the worst product to buy generic is toilet paper.

after shave. I have noticed that it may smell the same but it does not last.

If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.

I totally agree on the q tip thing. The stick part is too flexible or not enough cotton on the end.

Generic paper towels suck ass!
