Not all bimbos are Anglo blondes

Latino Rebels on the largest baked good company in the United States —

Suck it, nativists. The Reconquista has already happened and it started at your local bakery aisle. Unless of course, you don’t eat bread, pizza or doughnuts. Which would be so unAmerican we would shudder at the thought.

Grupo Bimbo, the Mexican conglomerate, that in the United States and Canada owns, among others:

  • Arnold/Oroweat – Producer of loaf bread primarily sold throughout the United States.
  • Bimbo – Producing cakes and bread. Bimbo breads and cakes are found in major United States cities with large Mexican and Mexican-American populations.
  • Boboli – Producer of ready-made pizza crusts.
  • Brownberry – Producer of loaf bread primarily sold throughout the United States.
  • EarthGrains – Producer of loaf bread primarily sold throughout the United States.
  • Entenmann’s – Pastry baker in the United States.
  • Francisco – Producer of bread and rolls
  • Freihofer’s – Producer of bread and cakes most commonly found in upstate New York.
  • Marinela – Producer of Mexican cookies.
  • Mrs. Baird’s – A leading bakery primarily present in Texas and surrounding states.
  • Sara Lee
  • Stroehmann’s – With Oroweat above, a producer of loaf bread in the United States.
  • Thomas’ – Producer of English muffins and bagels.
  • Tía Rosa – Producer of home-style bread, pastry, and tortillas.

    I didn’t know the tentacles of Bimbo.
    I remember Freihofer’s from Philadelphia in the 1950s, if I’m not mistaken and “nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee.”
    I am grateful that Bimbo has a good flax seed whole wheat bread available here in Honduras.
