Home Pride Update LII – Roman Meal and Tastykake

It has been more than a year since I last posted a Home Pride Update post. Since there has been some recent news about Flowers Foods who now own the Home Pride Bread brand I thought I would share it tonight.

Roman Meal Bread, Sandwich, Toast , Home Pride Replacement, Flowers FoodsEarlier this year Flowers Foods acquired the North American trademark rights for Roman Meal bread and buns. The Roman Meal company retained the rights for Hawaii, Guam and Asia.

Flowers Foods had partnered with Roman Meal for more than 40 years and had been one of seven baking companies who distributed their bread. Now Flowers Foods will administer the licensing for the other six baking companies.

I also looked at the latest territory map for Flowers Foods and it has not changed much in the last year. The only change was some additional territory in Ohio and Indiana and also a very small part of Michigan.

I decided to pick up some of the Mini Donuts. I picked up a small package of Powdered Sugar mini donuts and a larger one of Cinnamon.

I am looking forward to trying more of the Tastykake products.
