Works For Me Wednesday

It's a special edition of Works For Me Wednesday in which we are supposed to share some of our favorite name brands. I was going to do a post on this very subject, because I can be a brand snob. I'm getting better, but here are a few things around here that we don't settle for generic.

Charmin or Cottonelle toilet paper, it's just softer!

If you read my earlier post you already know my feelings about chocolate. Ever since my parents took me to the Hershey's Chocolate Factory in PA I've been hooked on chocolate. Here's some of my favorite brands, but it all depends on what you're using the chocolate for. Look for future posts explaining this and with some yummy recipes.
Hershey
Nestle
Ghiradelli
Lindt
Godiva

And for children's clothing I love Gymboree. Wait until it's on sale and it's not that expensive and you can wash it and wash it and it will hold up. So far three generation of girls have worn their clothes and my kids are tough on their outfits, but this brand holds up!

Last, diapers. Either Pampers or Huggies. They fit my girls the best, least amount of leakage, and don't irritate my girl's skin.

For more brands check out Rocks in my Dryer!

I love clothes that are quality for my kids. They have to pass from girl to girl to girl to girl to girl. Only one son but man is he rough on clothing. I want stuff that will hold up to them and to washing without losing a seam!

Lindt Chocolate is the BEST. My husband's family is Swiss and you just can't get better chocolate.

I'm not sold on the Gymboree thing, thought. So far I haven't been impressed, but maybe I should give it a better try.

I loooove Lindt chocolate. Also, a friend sent over some Godiva from the US for my birthday recently -- my first ever Godiva experience. It was pretty good, but not a patch on Lindt!
