The iconic bread brand returned to store shelves Monday, according to reports, months after a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of Wonder, Twinkies and other assets from the now-defunct Hostess Brands.

Wonder Bread was snatched up along with most of Hostess' other bread brands by Flowers Foods for $360 million. Flowers also produces Tastykake snacks and Nature's Own bread.
