From January next year, two kinds of yellow dye will no longer be added to the packaged dry pasta and processed cheese mix that is famous for its gooey yellow-orange look. Instead, natural ingredients like paprika, annatto and turmeric will be used, said Kraft in a statement on April 20th that promised no change in how Mac and Cheese actually tastes.

Kraft Heinz certainly seems open to offering a sweeter deal to London-based Unilever.

On Friday, Unilever rejected a massive $143 billion merger proposal from Chicago-based Kraft Heinz, but Kraft Heinz seems undeterred.

“While Unilever has declined the proposal, we look forward to working to reach agreement on the terms of a transaction,” Kraft said in a statement Friday. Kraft is owned by private equity titan 3G Capital, which is widely expected to do a major deal this year.

Some of Kraft Heinz’s biggest brands include Heinz Ketchup and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, while Unilever counts Dove and Ben & Jerry’s among its well-known names. But those are just the tip of the iceberg for the two consumer goods giants. Here’s a list of the brands that would come together if Kraft and Unilever were to join up.
