M&Ms are made by Mars, not Nestle.

I always love taking friends from Mexico to Taco Bell--we all giggle at the oddities through the whole meal!  Definitely a "happy meal"!

I used to work for a company that handled private label products for grocery stores, and all of their cereals were made by Ralston Foods, originally part of Ralston Purina, now part of Conagra apparently.

Taco Bell is to Mexico as much as Chop Suey is to China.

American Budweiser is served ice cold and has more carbonation.

European Budweiser is sold at room temperature and has twice the alcohol content.

Having a very wide array of goods is not uncommon with multinational companies like Mars, Procter & Gamble etc. I'm very confident in snacking on an occasional candy bar without the worries of consuming pet food.

Yeah - it seems like Nestle, Unilever and P&G make just about everything.
