Home Pride bread has just dropped off the face of the earth. Does anyone have any idea what happened? I raised my kids on this bread and just love it. If anyone knows what happend, Please tell me.

    1. Here's an article I found...I was also wondering where my favorite bread went.

        Wow... That’s really an end-of-an-era kind of story. I grew up on Wonder Bread and even though I haven’t had it, (or wanted it...), for years now, I figured it was one of those things that would be with us always. Whatever you may think of it, it holds a very important place in the history of American food. I wonder if it will start to disappear from other regions of the Country too, now... It’s almost enough to make me want to go out and buy a loaf.... Just for old times sake.

            "wow, wonder bread is bankrupt!"

            While I'm sorry for their (former) employees, all I can say is "about damned time"! I never understand why anyone actually liked bread that basically turns into paste right there in your mouth, and I'm comparing it to other supermarket products, not bakery bread!

        1. Thanks so much, I did try to email them with no response. But the article you found says it all. What a shame! I like my carbs and don't care about all the healthy stuff, LOL. I want my bread! Again many thanks at least now I will stop looking and try to find some other type of bread.

          1. I agree. Where is it? I live in Medina,Oh and found 3 white loaves at the local grocery store and over 50 wheat loaves. My husband stops EVERY day to see if there is any more white. We prefer no other white bread and want to see it come back. Who can help us with this.? Is it really Hostess?

              You realize that "white" and "wheat" are not really great terms? White bread is made from wheat!

              1. re: sandylc

                What would be your suggestions for more appropriate terms?

                1. re: Samalicious

                  White and WHOLE wheat. Or, white/whole wheat blend. This would discourage dishonest food producers from implying that white bread with a spoonful of bran in it is a whole food. The term "wheat" is meaningless.

                  piperk, everyone knows what you're talking about.
