Macaroni and cheese. Ketchup and Oreos? Wall Street is betting it could happen. Shares of cookie king Mondelez were up more than 6% Thursday on speculation that Kraft Heinz might want to take it over.
Will a deal really happen though? Spokespeople for both Mondelez and Kraft Heinz had no comment on the rumors. And it might seem odd that Kraft Heinz might want to buy Mondelez since Kraft and Mondelez were actually one company not that long ago.
