If I didn't mention it before, I only buy Heinz jetchup. My dh thinks I don't know the difference. Yes I do since I don't eat much of it with the tomato allergy I can tell.

It has been a looong time since I've posted, but I thought that I would weigh in on this topic. I find that the older I get the more 'brand loyal' that I am. DH calls it 'set in my ways.
TP Charmin Ultra
Dish liquid Dawn Original
Washing detergent Surf
Fabric Softner Snuggle
Coffee Maxwell House
Shortening/Oil Crisco
Soft Drinks (rarely) Reg Pepsi or 7UP
Chili Wolf Brand (It started here)
Original Ranch Style Beans (I've never been able to duplicate them)
Hunts Catsup
I won't knowingly buy anything that says canola oil on the packaging.
I don't buy much canned or packaged foods. Most of my cooking is from scratch using my home canned and frozen foods.
Well, it's good to be back, but I have to go check on my grape juice. DH brought home a 4 gallon bucket of grapes yesterday and I have the juice clarifying now.

I try to keep to Australian owned and made, if not owned at least made and sourced, I'd say half my supplies are Aussie made at least.
BUT there are some things we just don't make so I go for whatever I like best or cheapest.

Lipton tea, loose or bags. (O/S)
Orange power, pre wash, washing powder and pump pack deodoriser (Au owned and made)
Bega cheese (Au owned)
Schick razor heads don't like the others.
Kikoman soy sauce.
