Can't pass data information to the associated view

Hi Everyone

I'm attempting to pass whats only needed to a view on my website. Instead of using the all() method I'm trying to figure out a more efficient way to pass information. I've built one scope and created a query that selects multiple columns from my database (The syntax is below). My question is, when I try and pass the information from the view, literally nothing is appearing in my view and I'm not sure why. What am I doing wrong? How do I fix this problem?

$products = new Product;
$products = $products
        ->select('name', 'description', 'rating_count', 'rating_cache')


public function scopeApprovedNames($query){
    return $query->where('published', '=', '1');


 @foreach($products as $product)
        <h4><a href="{{url('/names/'.createMyExpression($product->name))}}">{{myOwnSlug(e($product->name))}}</a></h4>
        <p>{{ !empty($product->description) ? $product->description : 'No Description Given' }}</p>
        <p>{{ $product->rating_count }} {{ Str::plural('review', $product->rating_count) }}</p>
            @for ($i=1; $i <= 5 ; $i++)
                <span{{ ($i <= $product->rating_cache) ? '' : '-empty'}}"></span>
