Long live Hostess.

The bankrupt bakery company, which makes Wonder Bread and Twinkie, is slated to be purchased by Flowers Foods Inc., a report said Wednesday.

Flowers Foods reportedly snagged Hostess for $360 million after no other bidder made a competing offer.

The purchase is pending approval from bankruptcy court.
