    I am surprised HOW big Pillsbury is... In Germany, they are not called Pillsbury, but "Knack und Back" which basically means "Pop and Bake", obviously referring to their unique packaging. I actually used to think that this is a relatively small german company... :D

    10,000 dollars in the mid 19th century was probably worth a fucking million today. I don't think he just borrowed some money from his typical-wealth of the time dad.

    You can live in what was once the largest mill in the world, the Pillsbury A Mill. The mill has been converted into lofts. Also that mill was built as a response to the Washburn A Mill, that was then the largest mill in the world.

    I knew Pillsbury owned Burger King, mostly because when BK expanded to Australia, they couldn't use the name. So Pillsbury gave the man who would be behind the Australian version a list of names he could use. The one he used? Hungry Jack's!

    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 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.
