Related to the "skimping vs brand name" thread, I was thinking about my brand loyality. When it becomes less an issue about saving money and more of an issue with "who do you trust?".

- Certain computer supplies. I refuse to by anything other than an ASUS motherboard, although that does not mean I'll be getting the most expensive one. Samsung for monitors. Seagate for hard drives. LG for DVD players.

- Kraft Dinner. Period. Nothing compares to the original, IMHO. I'll wait until it's on sale then I'll by a case of 48 at once (the strange looks I get form the cashier are free). Usually lasts me two months or so until I need to re-stock.

- Anything made by Nintendo. GameCube, Wii, DS, GBA, misc. etc. Speaking of games, Valve has earnt my trust by making a wide assortment of fantastic games.

- I'm a Coke man, not a Pepsi man. As a whole I like all of Coke's stuff better than Pepsi, but especially the main cola's.

- Colgate tooth paste. Cause my mom told me it was the bestest!!

There's some other stuff that I can't think of right now, will add later.

Read it and weep, fella


I cant think of any specifically, but I always stick to one brand of things once I've determined that they're trustworthy. Radio stations, TV stations, grocery stores, food brands, etc.

I always feel like I'm cheating on the other brand if I try something new.

K2 alpine skis. I've had bad experiences with almost every other brand and never once with the 3 pairs of K2's I've owns.

New Balance running shoes, because I need the width customization (also there's an outlet only 4 miles away).

I've used a Logitech Marble Trackball since I was in high school. As long as they don't stop making them, I won't stop buying them.

Sansa mp3 players. Very high quality for ridiculously cheap prices.

Le Creuset and Sur La Table brand cookware. We got fully outfitted after the wedding last year and this stuff is incredible. Lifetime guarantees too.

Same here.

Only other things I can think of are:

Ketchup and cocktail sauce - Heinz
Mustard - French's
Tartar sauce, Mayo and potatochip dip - Kraft
Steak sauce - A1

The only sort of big ticket things for which I have an intense brand loyalty are Nike shoes, Rawlings baseball/softball gloves and Dell computers. Nike because they seem to be the only athletic shoes that offer me enough arch support out of the box. Rawlings because I've had 30+ years of good quality and see no reason to try something different. Dell because I'm on my 5th Dell, both laptops and desktops, and I've never had anything but positive experiences with their products and their support, on the really rare occasions on which I've needed it.

I used to be a Mopar man until a couple of really bad experiences with the corporate support for their product soured me on the brand in general.

I've got a T-shirt, sweatshirt, hat, socks, and sneakers on that are all swooshed. I have a couple of Reebok items at home and occasionally get Reebok shoes, but I have an unhealthy non-love for adidas, though I couldn't begin to tell you why.

I'm pretty brand-loyal to EA Sports games, although that is less of an issue than it used to be because the licenses are exclusive now.

Uh, no. Best Foods only for me, thanks.

Put me in the Coke camp as well, though I find many Pepsi products (that are not Pepsi) quite enjoyable. And Gatorade, NOT Powerade. And Tillamook cheese and ice cream.

You know, I actually thought long and hard about this and I could not come up with anything. I have no loyalty to clothing, sneakers, business wear, cars, bikes, music stores, food, milk, pretty much anyhting. And then I looked overat my ever present can od Diet Coke and pack of Orbit Bubblemint gum and realized I could never order another diet soda - especially Diet Pepsi - and Orbit Bubblemint is the only gm I chew. So there.

However, when I smoked, it was always Parliaments.

Best Foods - Mayo
Plochmann's - Stoneground Horseradish Mustard
Coke
7-UP (I drink ALL clear lemon-lime beverages, but 7-UP is obviously superior and when I'm sick it is a MUST)
Saltines - the store brand ones are too sweet
Eggo Nutragrain Blueberry Waffles
Morningstar Farms non-meat Sausage Patties
Safeway (yes it is a store brand) Blueberry Instant Oatmeal, because it has dehydrated blueberries instead of blueberry flavored fig pieces.
Safeway Eating Right Chicken Tamale Frozen Meal for 2 - Seriously they put crack in that rice...

/edit

Oh yeah, and Tillamook Cheese and Tillamook Yogurt (Vanilla Bean is the bestest)

I don't tend to think that I have too much brand loyality. But these are what I came up with:

Clothes: I've gotten into Reebok recently for both its shoes and its sweaters. I used to buy Vans sneakers exclusively, but I don't care for some for their recent designs.

Food/ Drink: I'm so used to Heinz ketchup in my everyday life, I'm not sure I would survive trying another brand. As far as drinks go, I have to go with Diet Pepsi in the great cola debate. I like both and drink both (though Pepsi more), but my worst job was connected to Cola-Coca and they gave me so much crap when ordering their products. Oh, and the best cheese in the world is Queso Duro (hard cheese) from the motherland. Tillamook can go suck it and suck it hard for all I care.

Gas: Nine times out of ten, I'll use Sunoco gas because it is less expansive around here and seems to give me more milage per gallon out of my car.

Books/ Magazines: I find the best deals and variety at Borders. Their rewards card gives me really good discounts every couple of weeks as well.

Radio: XM/Sirius is so incredible. I don't know why I didn't get sooner and I hope the rumors of it going bankrupt aren't true.

P.S.: Sorry about the cheese diss, Guru Zim, but I got to call it as I see it.

Bah, 7-up is definitely 3rd on the food chain. I'd even rank Sierra Mist above it. It USED to be great.

For me, if I use Worcestershire sauce, it has to be Lea & Perrins.

Is there really a different brand that isn't L&P? I don't know that I've ever had any, if there is.

There are a few. I'm pretty sure Heinz has one, a few other national brands. And there are generic store brands.

I prefer Mac computers, but I have no problem using PCs. Mrs. Shem insists on Downy fabric softener, so that's what we get.

Other than that, I can't really think of any brands I'm loyal to.

I switched allegiances from FIFA soccer games to Pro Ev (or Winning XI if you prefer) about five years ago and never looked back. Beyond that, can't think of much.

If there's a brand of sweet more addictive than Haribo though, I've yet to come across it.
