As a kid growing up....you just can't make a good PB&J, without Wonderbread..... :)


Wonder bread will be the primary sponsor of Kurt Busch's #78 Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet during the Oct. 18-20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Talladega. Inspired by the motion picture Talladega Nights, the colorful paint scheme on Busch's Chevrolet will have a look similar to the #26 Wonder Bread race car (click here to see the #26 car) in the 2006 movie. The motorsports sponsorship is part of the reintroduction of the Wonder brand, which had been off the market since the bankruptcy of its former owner late last year. Flowers Foods, a leading producer and marketer of packaged bakery foods in the U.S. acquired the Wonder brand in July 2013.
"There is nothing more American than Wonder bread and NASCAR," said Keith Aldredge, Flowers Foods' vice president of marketing. "We're thrilled to be partnering with Kurt Busch and the Furniture Row Racing team to debut the Wonder car at the Talladega Superspeedway. Having such an incredible driver wear the bright colors of Wonder will make for a truly memorable all-American race experience."
"This motorsports partnership definitely carries a special feeling with two American icons coming together  Wonder bread and NASCAR  at one of America's legendary racetracks," said Busch. "And the sponsorship also has a nostalgic feel for me since Wonder bread was a household staple while growing up in Las Vegas." Busch added, "Talladega is a track that we can win at and a celebration with the Wonder car in Victory Lane will make this partnership even more special."(Furniture Row Racing)(9-26-2013)

I thought Wonder Bread was going bankrupt. The local Wonder Bread Store closed down.

A bankruptcy judge approved the sale of Twinkies, Wonder Bread and most of the other top products of Hostess Brands.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
A bankruptcy judge has given final approval for the sale of Twinkies, Wonder Bread and many of Hostess Brands' other assets, clearing the way for the iconic products to return to shelves.
Hostess snacks -- including Twinkies, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs and Zingers -- were sold for $410 million to a joint venture of private equity firms Apollo Global Management (APO) and Metropoulos & Co. They expect to return the product to store shelves this summer.

Wonder Bread and most of Hostess' other bread brands was purchased by baker Flowers Foods (FLO) for $360 million. The company has yet to give a date for when those breads will be back in stores. On Thursday, Judge Robert Drain also approved the $31.9 million sale of the Beefsteak bread brand to baker Grupo Bimbo (GRBMF), a Mexico-based company that is one of the largest U.S. bakers.
