    LOL that's what I was going to say. Heinz is the only brand I can think of right now that I would say I'm loyal to.

    Google wins!!!


    Google search, Google Pack, Gmail, Google Earth, Google finances the Opera browser, Google Desktop, Google Trends, Google News search, Picasa, Youtube...

    Without Google, the Internet would suck a little bit.

    Odd idea. They sell awful bread that is fractionally less awful than that of the compition. Their bread is still just abysmal. Buy a real loaf.

    I make a hour n half drive cross borders to get this stuff so I guess that shows brand loyalty .

    Im not much of a chewer anymore but when Im workin outside its good to have a pouch for when the occasion warrents. Coming equpt when workin remote makes you god among men. Atleast with the foremen. they've have time to aquire good taste :)

    And Google Books, which have allowed me to see contemporary works for when I wrote about World War I-era Iran.

    I'm also partial to this brand:

    I bet there are many people here who don't know what MicroProse stands for.

    We should do a pool and check it out.

    Nokia phones is the only one I can think of. And it's not exactly "loyalty", as I would switch without regrets should they start making crap devices.

    Regards :).
