    i’m in france, and i don’t even know the price difference between generic
    and brand drugs, it’s all free for us so i just take the one pharmacist
    gives me

    This was a great idea guys. I really appreciated watching this.

  3. ErwinIgnacio says:

    I think you can effectively blame China for making cheap knockoffs that
    people associate cheap to not better from expensive same product

  4. SirLobsterman says:

    yeah, generic food isn’t as good in personal experience, went and bought a
    $1 pringle knock off, nothing close to it.

    Please can you answer the question
    “Is it possible to sweat whilst having a shower?” Thank you :)

    But I like to overpay for a pretty label.

    Salt may not taste different but the crystals are different so I’ll gladly
    play more for the more fine salt.

    Also there have been cases where generic drugs were shown to work
    differently because of the filler items. I work at a pharmacy and we were
    making an antacid liquid for a patient with a feeding tube and when we used
    the store brand stuff to crush for the medicine it was lumpy and unusable
    where as the name brand stuff yielded a smooth and homogenous mixture.

    you should add a tally count of how many a person got wrong and right next
    to each individual that way us viewers could visualize the data more

  14. xxghostxx170 says:

    if its medicine the generic brand is exactly the same but for food the
    taste might not be the same and thats all that matters

  15. Feng Gula says:

    Same shit. All GMO garbage lol.

  16. George G (White Shadow) says:

    Maybe I have a fine palette, but I can always tell the difference between
    generic and brand food. Some more than others, but it’s just never exactly
    the same.

    fLaYs…. Nice :)

  18. Cooking Lessons for Dad says:

    A good reminder to check out generic brands whenever possible. I am always
    looking for more ways to save money.
