Durable Goods?

While this photo represents 66% of every lunch prepared for my younger two boys (dino nuggets being the third component), it also showcases the two staple products behind the newly formed Kraft Heinz Company.  The mega merger, financed in part by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway will be the fifth largest food and beverage company in the world (Nestle being numero uno).

This has about as mucho to do with mortgages as does the Durable Goods report out today, showing that Americans purchased 1.4% less long-lasting stuff than we did the month before.  Incidentally, Mac-n-Cheese could count in those statistics as the shelf life does in fact exceed one year.
