    You walk into the supermarket and see four levels of brands. But are M&S Jaffa cakes really made by McVities? Is there a difference between Tesco and Kellogs Bran Flakes? (see the Downshift Challenge section of the Money Diet for more info on this)

    Using MoneySavers Collective Knowledge

    I want to use the insider information of all MoneySavers to try and compile a list. Do you work in/or at a factory producing such goods. If you do - what's the difference or are they just the same things in disguise.

    This could be both food and electrical or other goods.

    What to do

    Please put

    A. What the main and sub-product are
    B. How you know
    C. Are there any differences

    To submit your info, just click reply


    PS thanks to sumosaver for the idea for this.

    A Quick Warning

    It's worth remembering there is no way to check the info below, so take it all with a little pinch of salt (own brand?) but still probably worth trying the cheaper one
