I Right now my cupboard is full of various Brillia pastas. I do not like it but can't afford what I want. De Cecco is better then Barilla. But I prefer handmade pasta available at Italian Delies.
HEB has the best Sparkling water. It's litter bottles but, I am switching to a canned versions on Imperfect Foods. This week I hope to order a 6 pack to try it out.
Hot dogs is another item I am particular about. Ball Park Angus Hot dogs.
I try various brands of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Spies are 99% McCormick. Worcestershire sauce is the brand I always use. Heinz Catsup of course.
Daisy sour cream, Lays original chips, Campbell's Tomato soup. Cream of Mushroom soup also.
Amy's Rice & Bean Enchiladas.
I am also picky about trash bags... I only use small ones now. All is my 2nd fave, Downy Baby is my fave.
But it ultimately is what can I afford and is it available.
