Pillsbury - The Overlooked History

    In this case, I was most shocked by what you did NOT mention: Pillsbury flour. We hardly ever buy the Pillsbury refrigerated or frozen products. But, we have frequently purchased Pillsbury flour in five and ten pound bags. :-)

    Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and the like need to watch the first five minutes of this video to see just how great capitalism REALLY is. And BTW, I suspect that General Mills had to sell the cake mix business to Smucker's in order to keep the Betty Crocker brand.

    I have never seen a Pillsbury products for almost a decade now in my country, the Philippines. I remembered that their last product that i saw in a commercial was a breading mix that can also be mixed with water.

    I knew about the Burger King. I worked there for awhile and that's why they have those little Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. They bought BK in 1967. Grand Metropolitan in 1988/9. Diageo in 1997. Then in 2002, was bought by a private equity firm TPG Capital. That then sold 31 percent of their stake in BK to 3G Capital. In 2014, BK acquired Tim Hortons and now their coffee sucks. Funny story, Wendy's owned Tim Hortons from 1995 to 2005. Anyway, it's on Wikipedia. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Burger_King

    I'd never thought Pillsbury was that big. Here in Mexico, the company could never make it and it's something that you''ll probably find incredible. After the Mexican goverment led by Salinas opened the trade with other countries after years of protectionism, a lot of brands from America and Europe started to take over and killed many traditional brands. For example, the biggest chocolate makers, La Azteca, lead the market for decades, even with the competition by Hershey's, but when Mars entered the Mexican market, it quickly went bankrupt and was bought by Nestlé. That same story repeated a lot, except with the Pillsbury brands. No one bought the dough tubes when they arrived because most people don't bake their own bread and cookies at home and we were used to get our cookies and pastries already baked, either from local bakeries or from the supermarkets, packaged by Bimbo or Gamesa, which never lost their foot on the market. The Green Giant vegetables couldn't make it either against the big brands that were already established like Del Fuerte or Herdez. Today, you can't find either Pillsbury or Green Giant products in most stores, unless it's a specialized store that imports those products. Only Burger King managed to get a share of the fast food market but even that brand struggles against KFC and McDonald's and dozens of locations have closed every year since 2010. Maybe you should make a video about big brands that failed in foreign markets, like Pillsbury.

    I like *Totino's* frozen pizza. One of the *Walmart Supercenters* in Salem, Oregon sells *Hormel* brand Pepperoni with added Jalapeño. I like to buy Totino's _Supreme,_ and add a dozen *Hormel Pepperoni Jalapeño* before baking. Makes for a spicy pizza for 1-2 people, perfect for lunch. I stock up on Totino's when it's under $1.25 ea. Mission Lake Walmart #5368 is the only place I have found *Hormel Pepperoni Jalapeño.* Salem, Oregon presently has 2 Walmart Supercenters (one has an Auto Care Center) and 1 regular Walmart. Dallas, Oregon has 1 regular Walmart (Auto Care Center), McMinnville, Oregon has 1 regular Walmart, and Woodburn has 1 Walmart Supercenter.

  72. Christopher Noel

    Christopher Noel23 days ago

    And yes, I do shop around in case that one store decides to stop carrying *Hormel Pepperoni Jalapeño.* Every store I can find has the pepperoni, but not _Jalapeño._ It really makes a big difference on the pizza; I suggest you try it if you like spicy food.
