I was pondering this lately for myself. It seems like people are less and less into sticking with a certain brand name item. There's a few brand names I am loyal to.
United Airlines. I have so many miles on them, I like the routes and the service. I used to be really loyal to America West since 1985 but lately, not too much. For short hops yes but all my long hauls are on UA.
Chevron. I honestly dont know WHY I am loyal to them for filling up my car, but Ive been using them for jeeze, maybe 15 or more years.
Jif and Welches Grape Jelly. I grew up with them and love them and still eat them on my pb and j sammiches.
I also grew up with Imperial Margarine, but for the life of me I cant find it in tubs ANYWHERE So Ive had to switch.
Vans. I'm telling you these shoes just rock!
Eddie Bauer jeans. They just fit me right and are always comfortable from day one.
Coke. Nothing but the best!
Crest. Grew up with it, still use it (that seems to be a trend I am figuring out, whatever I grew up with I seem to stick with - hmmmmm....)
I used to be a GM car guy and swore up and down I would never buy anything other than American cars. Well, after having brand new Saturns and Mercurys, I switched to a Mazda for my current car (and I am sure my fathers remains are swirling around in his urn). I'm telling you though, Ive never been happier with a car than I have with this one and it's never given me grief.
So what about you? Any brand names you MUST use? Any you used to use but for whatever reason you no longer do?
