I’ll agree. Costco,to us, is quality. So much is uswed by small business,I guess it has to be good. We’re loving their Kettle chips.Superb!!
For a general "overall" store-house brand I would endorse almost anything under the KIRTLAND label (The COSTCO Hose Brand) Film, Batteries, Frozen foods, Salted Nuts, Coffee, Bacon, and the list goes on!
Canned chili: Staggs: We’re having it sunday for the Super Bowl!

Whats the deal with William and Jimmy Dean?
In the category of pasta…the award goes to Barilla.
The reason for the award is taste and texture. All varieties I have tried do not go mushy in the cooking, even if the cook commits culinary sins. Of all the pastas I have tried in the supermarket, Barilla beats them all. Unfortunately, Barilla is beating the rest in price increase as well. I will pay more though as I think the difference in quality is worth it.

Here in the Northeast, Cabot cheese, butter, and sour cream get my vote over Land O Lakes.
Quaker Oatmeal (including instant varieties) is noticably better than store brands.
Kraft mac & cheese is the only brand that tastes right to me.
I’ve found Rienzi canned beans to be less mushy than other brands.
Cholula and Melinda’s hot sauces – if they’re in the supermarkets in CT, they’ve got to be everywhere, and they’re very good.
