    as an anachronistic business dies.   Who eats that crap anyway?   The only thing Wonderbread is good for is the old plumbers trick of wadding it up to stuff in a copper pipe you are soldering.

    •  It's a lot more than just Wonder Bread (0+ / 0-)

      Just a few examples:

      Mrs. Cubbison's stuffing mixes are a staple on many Thanksgiving dinner tables.

      Colombo and Toscana both make very good sourdough breads.

      And most people have heard of Home Pride breads.

      Fortunately here on the West Coast we've got some regional brands to pick up much of the slack (we've got Franciscan for sourdough, and Oroweat makes some good sandwich breads though I've developed a fondness for Sara Lee's 45 calorie/slice breads). But in other parts of the country we could see emptier shelves and higher prices as the remaining companies decide to take advantage of the reduced competition and pad their own profit margins.
