It’s like, fresh, man. We’ve got that brand in Columbus too. Maybe it’s a Kroger thing

Rejected names were Flameo and Leako.

This OEM successfully marketed and licensed their OOZEO designs, rebranded by the licensee as DURACELL

good one!
they retained features of the bursto design.
ever try to remove duraleakers from a flashlight tube without a big spade bit on a drill?

Yes, unsuccessfully. Using a big spade bit? That's got to be more than a little bit messy. The leakage must have been in an expensive flashlight to be worth the effort. Maglite?

In the early 60's, Pontiac Motors was developing a sports car to compete with the Corvette called the "Banshee". In spite of the death portending shrieking wraith connotations, and the original Banshee never making it to production, Pontiac continued to use this name for future cars in this experimental series.

Calpis aka Calpico is really good. It's a non-carbonated, sweet, yogurt/cultured milk soft drink.

It's actually カルピス. That's probably why they changed the name to Calpico in the US.
