Who knew

Postby Warmsoul/Jeanie13 » Wed Jan 16, 2008 7:12 am


When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest?

So did you "squeeze" for softness to determine freshness?

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 colored twist tie.

They are:
M - Blue,
Tu - Green,
Th - Red,
F -White,
S -Yellow.

So if today were Thursday, you would want red twist tie, not white which is Friday's (almost a week old)!

The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Red - White -Yellow, -- Monday through Saturday

This is what Heloise has to say, who knows? LOL

Dear Heloise: Can you get a list of the colors of bread ties/matching days delivered for the major brands? Hard to tell when the fresh loaves have been delivered. Thanks.

Hmmm. A very interesting question that took a little research. A major bread manufacturer that we contacted said ties are not industry standard. Each bread company differs, depending on the bakery and location. It is best to purchase bread by checking the "best by date" or by the old standby "squeeze test." Remember when squeezing that whole grains and high-fiber breads might not be as pliable due to the density of the wheat.

Sorry for confusion........
