Kellogg Saying Farewell To Some Snack Favorites

Kellogg may say farewell to Famous Amos and Keebler cookies. The cereal maker says that it’s exploring a sale of its cookie and fruit snack businesses so it can focus on “core” parts of the company. “These brands have had difficulty competing for resources and investments within our portfolio,” said CEO Steve Cahillane in a statement. “These changes will make Kellogg more agile and better focused on growing demand for our foods.” Other sweets possibly up for sale include Mother’s and Murray cookies, as well as Little Brownie Bakers, a division that bakes several popular Girl Scout cookies, according to Kris Bahner, Kellogg’s Senior Vice President.
