Yes, I'm hungry and poor. So, how can I eat like a King but pay like a pauper?

So it's my understanding that 50% of generic brand foods are actually just name-brand foods repackaged/labeled. Is that accurate? In addition, is there a list on line where I can find out what other names popular name-brand products go buy? (Why buy Rice Krispies when Crispy Cracklers are $2 cheaper and are the same thing). I'd be especially curious about parishable items but any and all information (even non-food) would be neat to know.
