Thought This Was Cool - 'Mom-And-Pop' Brands Run By Corporate Giants

I saw this one this morning and thought I would add it. It's an article from The Street on Yahoo! and it's about the top brands that look and are marketed like "mom and pop" shop brands, but are actually made by major corporations. Like the author wrote, he chuckles when people say they prefer Seattle's Best over Starbucks when in fact, Starbucks owns them. OWNED!! The top ones are:

1. Tom's of Maine - Colgate

2. Kashi - Kellogg's

3. Nantucket Nectars - Dr Pepper/Snapple

4. Stonyfield Farms - Groupe Danone

5. Schwinn - Dorel Industries

6. Ben & Jerry's - Unilever

7. Stowe Mountain Resort - AIG (yes the company taxpayers bailed out)
