If you've never tried Trader Joe's, the store sells brand name products under its own private label at half off what you'd pay at a traditional supermarket.

But the question is, exactly which brand names are being sold as store brands at Trader Joe's? The Huffington Post thinks it has the answer.

They've done a taste test and side-by-side comparison of brand names and Trader Joe's brands in a variety of products. Here's what they found:

 

  • Cream Of Tomato Soup: Trader Joe's vs. Pacific 
    Pricing: Trader Joe's $2.49, Pacific $4.69
  • Organic Shells And White Cheddar : Trader Joe's vs. Annie's Homegrown
    Pricing: Trader Joe's $1.49, Annie's $3.29
  • Vegetarian Chili: Trader Joe's vs. Amy's
