What are some of the brand names that we use for everything?

Kind of a hard question to ask but I mean like everyone says Band-Aids but they are actually bandages. We like to use a certain brand name for everything. Or Pop tart. We don't call them toaster pastries, we call them Pop Tarts. What are some other ones??

  • I know people who do this with "Tylenol". They call any pain reliever Tylenol.
    Also, being in the south, everything is "Coke", even if it's a Pepsi, lol. We don't say Soda or Pop, it's just Coke.
    Jello is used for any gelatin dessert, even if it's not Jello brand.
