Name That Com­pany

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - BUSINESS -

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.
