NPR Sunday Puzzle (August 21) - Supermarket Brands

NPR Sunday Puzzle (August 21) - Supermarket Brands
Q: Name two familiar products you might find in a drug store or supermarket. These are well known national brands that compete with each other. Each name has five letters. Put them together, one after the other, and you'll get a well known geographical name, also five-five. What is it?
For some reason this answer came almost immediately. Could it be coincidental that Egypt is on the same continent?
A: IVORY COAST - Ivory and Coast are competing brands of soap (from Proctor & Gamble and Dial, respectively)

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
