6 Pantry Staples That Should Always Be Purchased Generic

I grew up during a time when the economy was good, consumerism was rising and my mother seemed to think that the sideways ponytail was the look I should go with. Yes, I am talking about the 1980's! I would spend my Saturday mornings watching the Smurfs, Rainbow Brite and the myriad of other animations as I chopped down on some marshmallowy, sugar infused cereal. It was a great time to be a kid!

Television itself was a wonderful thing and honestly, I loved the commercials just as much as I loved the shows. There were all these rivalries between brands and it showed. Coke vs. Pepsi, KFC vs. Popeyes, McDonald's vs. Burger King and boy did I have my favorites (Coke-KFC- McDonalds)!
