Default One thing to definitely buy generic!

I was at Target and needed to pick up plastic cups. I was standing there deciding between the target brand (up & up) and solo cups. The price of the target ones was lower so I bought them.

The package says "compare to solo" brand cups.

When I got them home and used one guess what brand name is on the bottom? SOLO! I thought that was hysterical.

HA!! In many cases (far more than you'd ever imagine), the generic products are the EXACT SAME as the brand names--they're just packaged differently!!

I'm glad you went with the generic. Who would really ever look at the brand of plastic cup?!

awesome!
I've learned from watching those stupid "how it's made" factory shows with dh that a lot of times the generics are made in the same factory and everything, just a different label is put on, like Deanna said.
