In this special episode of The Marc and Mandy Show: He Said She Said, Marc and Mandy debate about whether name brand better than no-name? To learn more about what they each have to say on the matter, check out the video above. For a cheat sheet on what kinds of items to save on and what to splurge on, keep reading.
What’s the difference between name brand and generic?
The most notable difference is the price. Generic foods almost always cost less than their name brand counterparts. Besides the cost factor, it’s not uncommon for generic no-name brand products to have less nutritional value or be made with lesser quality ingredients. It’s important to read and compare labels thoroughly when shopping, rather than relying on the price tag.
