The news surrounding Kraft Heinz for the past couple of months has been a series of possible acquisitions from other packaged food companies. Prior to November 8, Mondelez International Inc (NASDAQ: MDLZ) was rumored to be the leading contender.

However, following the unexpected election outcome, the probability of Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) or General Mills, Inc.(NYSE: GIS), whose assets are primarily domestic, acquiring Kraft Heinz has overtaken the more international Mondelez, according to Citi.

Kraft Heinz shares have seen a bit of a bounce in December after a late-year dip to below $80.
