WFMW - Bread Check

When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness?

Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Each day has a different color twist tie.

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday = Orange/Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow

So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old). The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Orange/Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday.

Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting, so I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors.

So to get more tasty bang for your buck, get the bread that tastes the freshest.

And knowing a system always works for me!
