    Is this like Good Cop/Bad Cop of the food world?


    "This acquisition will also reinforce Nestle Nutrition's presence in the USA, the world's largest nutrition and weight management market," Nestle said in a statement.

    Yeah, no one ever busted GM for making both Geos and Caddys.

    I'd say it's more like Philip Morris selling cigarettes and nicotine patches -- sort of the disease and the cure.

    Ex-Lax will come out with a brand of stool softener.

    Sort of like Phillip Reynolds owning Kraft.
    People who smoke generally eat less.
    People who quit smoking generally eat to help make up for it.
    Either way, PR makes a ton.

    Nice work by the boys over Nestle.

    Kind of like a drug cartel operating an expensive rehab clinic.
