Name That Company
I trace my roots back to the 1893 creation of a carbonated beverage for a pharmacy’s customers. My CEO in the 1950s was married to Joan Crawford. In 1965 I acquired Frito-Lay. Today I’m a snack and drink giant, with a market value recently topping $185 billion. People in 200 countries and territories consume my offerings more than a billion times a day. My brands include Doritos, Fritos, Rold Gold, Tropicana, Mountain Dew, Lipton, Cheetos, Gatorade, Ruffles, Tostitos, Near East, Naked, Sabra, Smartfood, SodaStream, Quaker and Life. Fully 22 of my brands generate more than $1 billion each. Who am I? Think you know the answer? We’ll announce it in next week’s edition.
