Kellogg agreed to buy Pringles for $2.695 billion.
"Pringles is an excellent strategic fit for Kellogg Company. It significantly advances the company's goal of building a global snacks business on par with its global cereal business," Kellogg said in a statement Wednesday.
For Diamond Foods, its "transformational" plan to buy Pringles may turn out to be the deal that transformed the company into a financial mess.Diamond Foods may have pushed too hard on its finances to cut the acquisition.
