How to get the freshest bread from the grocery store!

Get the Freshest Bread From the Grocery Store!

TOOLS

Typically, bread is delivered to grocery stores on five days of the week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday...

..each day has a specific color twist tie: Monday=blue, Tuesday=green, Thursday=red, Friday=white and Saturday=yellow..

the colors are in alphabetical order; blue green red white yellow and Monday through Saturday respectively. Easy to remember

So if you went to the store on a Wednesday, you would want to look for the bread with a green twist tie... not the red twist tie (almost a week old!)

Enjoy your fresh bread while others are amused at the bright colors!
