Brand Name VS. Generic: Is There A Difference?

Is there a difference?  What items do you notice a difference in with generic vs the name brand?

KDVR takes a look at this question, looking at the difference in price, taste and nutrition by putting several family favorite foods to the test.

14 local moms and kids were asked to participate in a taste test study.

The group ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, apple sauce, cheese and crackers, and ice cream. They tasted a brand name of each, and the generic equivalent from local big name stores.

Some items were said to have little to no difference, while others did.  The price is what really got me on some of these items.

You can see the full list of results here.
