  • Pop-Tart makes me think of that Warhol piece of Marilyn Monroe. Every time I hear it. Sorry.

  • Having a trademark does not imbue any company with the ability to control how the common people use their brand name in everyday conversation.

  • As a kid I liked eating the top parts of Pop-tarts.

  • I'll wager the folks at Kelloggs would disagree that Pop-tart has become generic. The trademark on Pop-tart is still in force.

  • A Pop-Tart is a flat rectangular toaster pastry approximately 3 in (75 mm) by 5.5 in (115 mm), made by the Kellogg Company. Pop-Tarts have a sugary filling sealed inside two layers of rectangular, thin pastry crust; each layer of this crust is about 0.1 in (2 mm) thick. Most varieties have frosting, but some do not. They can be eaten without being warmed, but are often warmed inside a toaster. They are usually sold in pairs inside foil packages, and do not require refrigeration.
