The Wonder Bread – Hostess Bakery in Jamaica, Queens (Photos)

My family tells me that all of us kids got sweets whenever we went there in the 1970’s to buy bread.  Being about four years old at the time, I can’t really remember that.

I definitely do remember loving Twinkies when I was a baby.  Strangely, I also remember seeing the Wonder Bread logo on the backs of trucks when we were driving.

That factory had a long run.  It closed only in 2011, believe it or not, after being in business for 130 years.  130 years … wow.

  1. Burlington Iowa had one of these, I believe. I never bought bread form it, though I hear you could. I don’t know if its still open or not.
