Using Brand Names

Posted on

Have you ever noticed that we sometimes use brand names for things that aren’t really that brand? Have you ever said, “Can you pass me a Kleenex,” but that tissue wasn’t Kleenex brand? I think these brands have done more than establish themselves. They practically are that product, no matter what brand you buy. Here are a few I thought of, but I would love to hear about more:

Kleenex
Q-tip
Jell-O
Pop-Tart

I thought it was just interesting that we use some brands without actually using the brand.
