@grovemck when did we start eating band-aids?

I think OP just meant any kind of product, but said food because most of what he listed was food.

Looks like I've been using my bandages wrong.

Mmm. Band-Aids are my favorite snack.

I had no idea popsicle was a brand name..

I once asked my cousin to pass me a Kleenex, and she didn't know what I meant.

Well Kleenex is the brand name. The actual name is tissue.

Popsicle is the name of the actual product. Frank Epperson named them popsicles after his children suggested he change it from "Emerson ice pops". While yes, Popsicle IS a brand name, it is also the product name.

I call them plasters, jelly, and ice lollies

Those are all brand names. Like the real word for jell-o is gelatin. Band-aid would be bandage.

Plasters, jelly, ice blocks.
