Wonder Bread will last for weeks in the cupboard because of all the preservatives in it. I never ate it growing up (mom's from Russia and she always baked good, homemade breads). I think WB tastes terrible and nutritionally-deficit-but it's the ONLY bread my husband will eat...

Actually I remembered earlier today my ONE experience with Wonder Bread...

When I was a kid, I used to go over a friend's house that had a pond in the backyard. We'd sometimes try to feed the fish... I remember one time we tried to throw in Wonder Bread (what was in her house at the the time) and for whatever reason the fish wouldn't eat it. They just spit it out.

You're better off wondering about it than experiencing it. But what I really wonder about is Bunny Bread

Fluffernutter
I was always more of a Bahama Bread fan than a Wonder Bread fan when I was little but I have to chime in that you just have to have your fluffernutters on Wonder Bread or it's not a true fluffernutter.

BTW- Speaking of Bahama Bread, whatever happened to it? I am a whole wheat person as an adult but I have fond memories of sandwiches on bahama bread with my grandfather as a child. It was the only bread he would eat a sandwich on.

We used white bread dough balls as bait when fishing for carp. And I remember those baloney and cheese sandwiches. Back before all the fast food places, when taking a trip in Dad's Oldsmobile, we would stop at those roadside parks with the picnic tables (remember those?). And Mom would pull out the basket with the b&c sandwiches, and peanut butter for me. Iced tea in big thermos bottles in plastic cups that you took home and washed.

One other use, when trying to solder a fitting on old copper pipe with water dripping out. Some times you can't stop a pipe from dripping, and that drip will prevent a good solder joint. Take a piece of white bread, wad it up into a doughy ball and shove it up into the dripping pipe. It will stop the drip momentarily and soak up the leak - just long enough to dry the pipe and make a good solder connection. When you finish the work and turn the water back on the bread will dissolve and go on down the pipe. I used to work with plumbers

The jingle was "That's what I said. Bunny Bread." or "Mead's Fine Bread" depending on where you lived.

Wonder Bread: great for PB & jam/jelly, French toast, bologna sandwiches, braunschweiger sandwiches, and bread, milk and sugar in a bowl. Hey, that's what my paternal grandma gave us kids a million years ago!!

If you've ever dealt with commercial bakeries you will readily understand the question of "what IS it"? Most commercial bakeries put a lot of odd chemicals into their bread mixes. I suppose most manufactured food is that way, though, bags and bags of chemicals mixed into the production of it for added color and shelf life.

Wonder bread is made with flour that has had most of the nutrients removed and a few vitamins added back in but it is still nutritionally less that whole wheat. The flour is bleached white flour and the bread made from it is extremely white. Wonder bread is a very soft bread and if you pinch it will turn into a gummy mass. They also use all sorts of preservatives, chemicals and I wouldn't be surprised to see high fructose corn syrup added to the mess as well. Kind of a chemical froth baked into a bread shape. Ick. Some folks like it, though, but I doubt it is healthy for them.
