Citigroup calls a potential takeover by Pepsico (PEP -0.8%) of Mondelez (MDLZ +0.9%) very reasonable to all parties. Even if PepsiCo doesn't pull the trigger, Mondelez is seen as a tasty treat for a different large food company. (Previous: PepsiCo pushes back at MDLZ buyout idea)

    In Western civilization, significant taxes and aggressive public education has worked well to stem tobacco use. Perhaps we should employ the same methods for nutritionally absent, high calorie junk food.

    Mondelēz International (MDLZ) "offers biscuits, including cookies, crackers, and salted snacks; confectionery products, such as chocolates, gums, and candies; powdered beverages and coffee; and cheese and grocery products. Its primary brand portfolio includes Oreo, Nabisco, and LU branded biscuits; Milka, Cadbury Dairy Milk, and Cadbury branded chocolates; Trident branded gums; Jacobs branded coffee; and Tang branded powdered beverages. "

     

    Seems like it would be a good merger with (HSY) or (KRFT).

    Michael Bryant, perhaps you should investigate the origin of MDLZ, as in, from which major international food corporation did MDLZ recently part? Perhaps you should drop a note to Irene Rosenberg about your merger idea? I think you should cut back on your intake of Oreos, Cadbury, and Pepsi, as they will rot your body, rot your mind, la cucaracha, la cucaracha.......

    If aggressive public education means nothing more than indoctrination, brain washing, etc., they can keep it.
