Name That Company

I’m the product of a 2010 merger of two companies, both of which trace their roots to the early 1900s, when one was making pretzels and the other selling peanuts. I introduced peanut butter sandwich crackers in 1913. Today, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, I’m a snack giant, with brands such as Kettle Brand, KETTLE Chips, Cape Cod, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, Pop Secret, Emerald, Late July, Krunchers! , Tom’s, Archway, Jays, Stella D’oro, Eatsmart Snacks, O-Ke-Doke, Metcalfe’s skinny and my own names. My market value recently topped $3.5 billion, and I employ more than 6,500 people. Who am I?
