Who really owns your favorite brands? Does you money go to the little guy like you think it does or is the little guy really just a subsidiary of a larger guy? The folks at BuzzFeed have put together what I found to be a rather enlightening video.

If you take it one step further some of these brands have direct competitors under the same corporate umbrella. Did you know that the people that own Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream also own Slim Fast? How about this, the parent company of Jenny Craig is Nestle. It makes you wonder who is really getting your money doesn't it?
