Wonder Bread may be back on shelves soon

Flowers Foods has put in a $360 million bid to purchase the Wonder Bread brand from Hostess Brands.  The bid includes Nature’s Pride, Merita, Home Pride and Butternut brands in addition to 20 of Hostess’ bakeries.  Wonder Bread has not been produced since Hostess filed for bankruptcy protection in November.  Any potential sale must be approved by the bankruptcy court.  Hostess has been selling off assets through the bankruptcy case as part of the liquidation process after it ceased business due to labor disputes.
