Ever wondered how all that sweet cream filling gets into the Twinkies, not to mention what's really so great about millions of loaves of sliced bread? Take your family to Continental Bakery, home of Hostess Twinkies, Wonder Bread, and those big chocolate cupcakes with the white loops you always had in your lunch when you were a kid.
Here in this 6-acre bakery, you'll be able to watch as dough is dropped onto bread pans and inserted into giant ovens for baking. The smell of freshly-baked bread is everywhere! We loved watching hundreds of loves of freshly-baked bread traveling overhead all around the factory before being deemed cool enough for slicing. Within minutes, they are sliced, bagged, and stored on shipping racks.
Don't miss the fresh samples of Wonder Bread and Hostess snack cakes -- they're likely to be the best you've ever tasted!
