Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Your cereal is made by a Tobacco company

Phillip Morris owns all these not-so-delicious brands. Talk about diversified. Raisin Bran and Miracle Whip? Velveeta and Jell-o? It's nuts.

It's nice to know that until Marijauna cigarrettes are totally legal and PM switches from tobacco to recreational, medical and "help you get off nicotine" cigarettes, they have a healthy portfolio of food products to keep their investors from getting squirelly.
Because a few readers are unbelieving - check out history/aquisitions under wikipedia . Their startegy is vice brands and since they also own Miller breweries - they've got booze, munchies & smokes on lockdown.

as much as i HATE PM and Kraft (the brand that owns all those brands listed), it's no longer true. PM does not own Kraft, as of 2007. doesn't make either company any better!
