Wonder bread returning to shelves

NEW YORK (AP) - Wonder bread is back almost a year after it vanished from shelves.

Flowers Foods Inc., which bought Wonder from the now-defunct Hostess Brands, says the bread started returning to supermarket shelves Monday.

The company, which also makes Tastykake and Nature's Own bread, snapped up five bread brands after Hostess went out of business late last year. The $355 million deal included Butternut, Home Pride and Merita, which are all returning to shelves along with Wonder.

Keith Aldredge, vice president of marketing at Flowers Foods, says the company is still deciding the fate of the Nature's Pride bread brand.
