We like buying stuff in this country, and we all know why.
It's because stuff is great. It can be all kinds of things, like butter, chocolate, a bus ticket, a full-sized replica Batman suit, or even an ironic(not so ironic) Phil Collins t-shirt. Stuff really encompasses most things, apart from kale, that's not stuff, that's shite.
Anyway, every year The Checkout 100 Top Brand list comes out, and it tells us what we like the buy the most. This year, just like it has been for the last 10 years, Coca Cola sits at number one, but surprisingly Irish brands have held there own against the multi-national products, with Avonmore Milk, Brennan's Bread, and Tayto all featuring in the top five.
Well done everyone, keeping it country.
Here's the top 20, and it makes sense seeing as we're semi-addicted to most things on there.
2. Avonmore Milk
4. Cadbury Dairy Milk
14. Irish Pride
20. Red Bull
