Can you match these brands to their corporate behemoth owners?

As it turns out, the answer for me is "Nope." I got 25%, which is bang on random chance for a multiple choice quiz with 4 options.

I'd like to plead 'Canadian', but we have over half of those brands here in Canada, too, and I didn't really know any of the corporate ownership details.

  1. I came in at 40%. The yogurts, Splenda, and syrups killed me.

    1. I got 35% (7 questions).

      I did laugh at "Soylent Corp." as a choice for Duncan Hines.

      1. 25%. I hadn't heard of many of those parent companies; most of the products I have never purchased and the only one I purchase regularly is Dannon yogurt.

            Wow! That's way worse than random chance. That's an almost unachievable level of wrongness!

            Fortunately, this is the kind of quiz where wrongness might be an indicator of a healthier, happier life.

              I think so since I never buy most of this.
              I was stabbing in the dark pretty much so random chance was really all it was.

                That's exactly what I did and got 20%! We don't buy any of those products at all. Don't know why I even bothered but I wanted to know what the connections are.

          2. Fun.

            I got 20% just by hitting buttons randomly (yay for randomness).

            Cannot eat much in the way of pre-prepared foods due to a physical condition.

                I got 20% too -- I buy less than 20% of those brands....
