Brand names vs. product names

OP and I had a conversation the other day, born out of I don’t know what about how some products are referred to by their brand names even though it’s the brand name.

What we’ve come up with so far (that I can remember):

Cool Whip
Pop Tarts
Saran Wrap

And I have multiple sclerosis fibromyalgia, asthma, drug allergies, and migraines. Basically, I have a collection of invisible chronic health problems. I don't just survive these things, but sometimes I do hate them because I see doctors so often that keeping healthy and staying full time employed is currently impossible.
