What companies are American?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24628808/?GT1=43001

How did you do?

I scored a 30% and was unpleasantly surprised.

I got 60%. I would've gotten a higher score if they had mentioned the names of the companies.

Kind of like people who tout the "American" car banner. There is far more behind a name than what there used to be.

Bunch of wild-ass guessing netted me 50%.

I got 70%. I knew 3 and just guessed at the rest, avoiding the ones with the word America and picking ones that sounded too foreign.

30%.

Thanks to my Dad living in Cincinnati, I got the alcohol question correct (there's a plant nearby.)

I was confident of very few of the others. Great eye-opening quiz, thanks for posting it.

Oh, & BTW: I got 40%.

3. Which one of these candy brands is made by an American company?

Baby Ruth is not correct.

Dum Dum Pops is the correct answer.

I should have known THAT one!

50% with guessing, and never picking stuff with American in the name.
