The only companies in a position to buy the BRAND is Bimbo, Flowers, or Campbell Soup. All have their own snack lines (Entemanns, TastyKake, Pepperridge Farm, etc), and their own market penetrations.

All 3 already make snacks similar to hostess, so it would be trivial to rebrand and repackage. Not sure if any are interested in the Wonderbread brand, since they all already have their own popular labels. The NaturesPride label might be worth it though. It was the only thing making money for the company.

None of them will be interested in the bakeries, or the labor force though. Only the markets. Basically, they will look at the existing bakeries and see calculate capacity.
