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. They are: Monday = Blue, Tuesday = Green, Thursday = Red Friday =
White and 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 - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through
Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in
the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and
even the ones with the plastic clips have differe! nt colors. You learn
something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the
right color on the day you are shopping.
