I changed the Intro[edit]

The intro originally said that Wonder bread is the name of two North American brands of bread,yet it listed 3 North American brads one in US, one in Canada and one in Mexico. I changed it to reflect that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:51, 6 February 2009 (UTC)


Wonderbread is available in Canada as well. In fact, those pictures on the page were taken in Toronto, Canada :) - sikander 15:02, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Does the Canadian version use the same recipe, or do they just happen to have the same name? They aren't the same company.Cousert (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 16:15, 17 April 2011 (UTC).

Balloon bread[edit]

Wonder bread and similar products are often called "balloon bread". For decades I thought this was merely a pejorative term. From reading this article, as well as the information at the official Wonder Bread web site, it seems obvious that the nickname came from the "balloons" printed on the packaging, in turn influenced by the hot air balloon festival that inspired the product name. If my hypothesis could be verified, I think this factoid should be added to the article. —QuicksilverT @ 03:36, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Extremely Soft[edit]

I think that that's borderline POV...I mean maybe they could mention its being...IDK...full of preservatives that make it that way, but "extremely soft" doesn't sound very encyclopedic to me. --I'm Kinda Awesome... 15:18, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Lead in Ink Used on Package[edit]

Perhaps twenty years ago, kids who ate bread from a loaf that had been encased in a wrapper printed inside out and thus the colorful logo came in direct contact with the bread got lead poisoning. I suspect this problem has been corrected, but wasn't it foolish to put lead in such close proximity to food? How many times would someone handling the packaging have gotten small quantities of the ink on the bread?--Jrm2007 (talk) 13:52, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Major usage and refrencing in Talladega Nights[edit]

i personally think it should be referenced to as it plays a big role in the movie. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TNArules (talkcontribs) 20:50, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Southern California[edit]

I noticed that Wonder Bread and Homepride Bread are now back in Southern California. A local Ralphs store had one variety of each.

Does anyone know anything about it? Are they back for good, or was this a one time shipment? Cousert (talk)

They appear to be back for good. Can someone with more information please update the article about the temporary closure of the Southern California bakeries? Cousert (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 06:21, 16 April 2011 (UTC).

Discrimination lawsuit[edit]

In 2000, a California jury in a racial discrimination suit against Interstate Bakeries Corp. awarded twenty plaintiffs $121 million, the second-largest award in U.S. legal history involving a private company accused of such wrongdoing.
Please provide some verification for this statement. It is extremely inflamatory and cannot be just thrown in without verification.

Enough advertising, how is it MADE?[edit]

I arrived at this page via the "Aerated Bread Company" and "Chorleywood Bread Process" WP links, both of which had lots of interesting about the respective production processes. However, this page only seems to give a general history of the company, and practically no information about the actual bread! Don't tell me a 90 year old recipe is still a trade secret? Only in America...

Do they pump it up with carbonated water (like the Aerated bread)? Do they add lots of enzymes and pump it full of air in a paint/dough shaker (Chorleywood)? Or a bit of both maybe? Thanks in advance.--Guid123 (talk) 14:43, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Canadian Issues[edit]

I found the article raised as many questions as it answered about the Canadian product. How did Weston come to own the trademark? Has the Canadian company always been separate and independent, as it seems to have started up about the same time as its southern namesake? Is the Canadian product actually different from the U.S. product? How is the Canadian product doing, market-wise? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Orthotox (talkcontribs) 18:54, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

A whole section on Wonder Bread in Canada but the popular culture section is gone now? Man, wikipedia has really lost its way. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:43, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Was there some lawsuit?[edit]

Article currently reads: "This was due to the judgment in the suit and a decline in sales..." What [law] suit? The article doesn't explain. Echoniner (talk) 06:15, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
