    Wrigley says it will halt production of a caffeine gum it launched earlier this month to give the FDA time to review the product. The development could have implications for PepsiCo (PEP -0.1%) and Mondelez International (MDLZ -0.3%) which are also looking to expand the use of caffeine in snacks and candy.

    Heard during Mondelez International's (MDLZ -2.3%) earnings call: 1) A lot of the focus is on the hit the company took from the devaluation of the Venezuelan currency. Unlike some other firms, the charge is being taken under segment results. 2) The focus in China is on gum and biscuits, two categories Mondelez thinks it has a unique advantage. 3) On rumors of a merger with PepsiCo, execs didn't comment directly but hailed the strength of the company.

    Shares of Mondelez International (MDLZ) slip 1% premarket after the company sees lower retail coffee prices and higher costs during Q1 cut into profitability. A stinging downgrade from Credit Agricole straight to Underperform from Outperform isn't helping sentiment.

    The FDA says it will investigate the safety of new food products marketed for children and adolescents that have caffeine added to them. An exec with the agency says the current amount of caffeine additives is beyond anything originally envisioned. Food companies dabbling with adding caffeine to existing and new products include Mars Inc, Mondelez International (MDLZ -0.7%), and PepsiCo (PEP -0.2%).

    Speculation that PepsiCo (PEP +0.3%) will either snap up Mondelez International (MDLZ +0.2%) and spin off a new snack company or explore combination opportunities with Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD +1.5%) continues to swirl around to affect the conversation on the stock. Though the company hasn't tipped off anything big in nature, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi did tease about exploring "structural options" for the North American beverage business during the firm's recent earnings call.

    Pepsi (PEP) is unlikely to buy Mondelez (MDLZ), according to reports in dealReporter, as PEP appears likely to stick with "healthy" food options, and expressed concern about antitrust issues. Rumors about a deal surfaced last week when investor Nelson Peltz disclosed he had taken a stake in both companies.

    More analysis on the rumored PepsiCo (PEP) - Mondelez International (MDLZ -0.8%) combination (previous): JPMorgan's John Faucher is a major skeptic that PepsiCo will be willing to merge Frito-Lay with Mondelez even with activist investors on the scene. The analyst notes a tax-advantaged Reverse Morris Trust transaction is unlikely due to the size of the potential deal while an outright buy of MDLZ would be too pricey.

    Speculation over a potential marriage between Mondelez International (MDLZ) and PepsiCo's (PEP) snacks food business looks even more intriguing after Pershing Square makes an investment in Mondelez, according to dealReporter. The 13-F which just became public due to a confidentiality clause only covers the purchases Pershing Square made up until December 31. Next month's round of 13-F filing releases will tell a clearer story on which firm might be pushing the board. (Previous: Nelson Pulz invests in MDLZ)

    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)
