I don't own brand of cereals - it must be Quakers porridge, Kelloggs etc.

There is a difference say between Lidl own brand and Kelloggs. Anybody feel the same.

No as most factories make for own brand and names it’s just the box that is different
I agree Redhelen - and I have noticed in some non-branded cereal there is a little less sugar.
Most things I'm okay with own-brand stuff. I get Asda's own brand Fruit & Fibre cereals, which are delicious and far cheaper than Kelloggs etc.

The only thing I get that I insist on getting the real stuff is Marmite.
I agree with Red, just the brand packaging is different contents the same. However they're notable exceptions depending on what your buying.
Mozz, Marmite! hope you get well soon fella.
// it’s just the box that is different //
Not necessarily true. The factory might be the same but the recipe can be different.
So, who does sell own brand cornflakes that taste just like Kelloggs?
Sometimes comparison sites show own brand as better. I don't eat cereals so can't comment on them.
They are similar but there maybe some differences in the recipe. You can tell by looking at the salt/sugar/fat content on the sides of the boxes.
How can folk claim own brands are the same but at the same time say there are exceptions?
Manufacturers might use the same ingredients but the percentages of individual ingredients might differ.
For me as an eg. Tesco own brand Battered fish is superior and tastier than 'Birdseye' or 'Youngs' brands and they both have a fame to claim.
Agree that most own brands have less sugar. Eating Kelloggs is a health risk!!
Simple Corby they're different products bought from different companies that manufacture them.
The weird history of Kelloggs corn flakes...originally for sanitorium patients and to stop unwanted "nasty habits"...

Definitely! I wouldn't buy anything 'own brand'.
Only buy Aldi porridge oats, Branson baked Beans, Lidl Chocolate Spread and cereal.
When folk claim, "most factories make for own brand and names it’s just the box that is different" is that not implying the exact same ingredients are used for both types?
Am I the only one to think that weird, pasta, given Kellogg's choice of a cockerel on the packet?
