I’ve got a confession to make: I have at least two Kellogg’s cereal boxes in my place. One is never enough, right? You gotta mix things up. And two is good for variation.

Or perhaps not.

But somehow, many people in the world are doing the same thing as I am. And maybe even worse. Kellogg’s horde of cereal products has conquered all kinds of households worldwide, especially in United States.

Besides cereal products, Kellogg also owns other bestselling products, like Pringles and Pop-Tarts. There are at least 24 top brands owned by Kellogg. They vary from cookies, crackers, pastries, and others. From marketing all of these products, Kellogg is making $13.5 billion a year.
