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
Kleenex
Bandaids
Saran Wrap
