A boost from Pringles and strong global results helped Kellogg’s fourth-quarter earnings beat expectations. Kellogg, known for breakfast foods such as Froot Loops and Pop Tarts, has been investing in its supply chain after several product recalls and by expanding its salty snacks business. It acquired Pringles from Procter & Gamble in February 2012. The brand provided a lift in the fourth quarter, with Pringles revenue up 5 percent in the United States and 1 percent in Europe.
