Have you heard of this?
To get the freshest store-bought bread … check the bread tie!
While in the grocery store the other day. I noticed an elderly man looking at a piece of paper in the bread isle.
I must have seemed a bit too curious… then he says, “Did you know the bread companies use a color code for the days they deliver the bread.”
Why no. I did not know that.
Yes, he gave me the piece of paper he had. How sweet is that? No. I didn’t ask for it.
Wanting to find out more. I turned to the internet. Here is what I found.
Bread is delivered five days a week, Monday Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and the bread maker puts a different colored tie on to designate which day of the week the bread was baked:
Monday – Blue
Tuesday – Green
Thursday – Red
Friday – White
Saturday – Yellow
I was back at the grocery store yesterday (Saturday) I looked for the yellow tie. Wanna know where it was? It was underneath all the other breads, which I noticed one loaf having a blue tie that was on top. Yikes! That is bread that was delivered on Monday.
I’m not sure how true this all is. It’s just something to think about when you buy bread. And, Don’t forget the squeeze test! Shhh!
