When you go 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. They are:
  1. Monday = Blue,
  2. Tuesday = Green,
  3. Thursday = Red
  4. Friday = White
  5. 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 different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.

Here's a little hint to remember the order of the first letter of each color: think about the saying Bread Gets Risen With Yeast.

But you should know there are some exceptions to these rules. use the system. Some bread makers bake six or seven days a week, so, obviously, the five-colored code doesn't work. In some cases, those bread manufacturers use black ties on Sundays and orange on Wednesdays, so they still fit alphabetically into the seven-day rotation.
