Buying Fresh Bread!!!

***This is true, I called International Award Winner, Dorothy Lane Market to confirm it!

Have you ever noticed that bread has different colored twist ties or plastic clip? It means something that most consumers don’t know! It means when the bread was made. Most groceries have bread delivered daily except on Wednesday and Sunday. When the bread man stocks, he doesn’t have time to look for expiration dates on each loaf on the shelf. He would have to do this at every store he stopped at, and that would take forever! So stop squeezing the bread for freshness or softness—this really doesn’t tell you anything! Remember this code!

Each day has a different color twist tie. They are:

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow

So if today was Thursday, you would want a red twist tie -- not a white tie which is Fridays (almost a week old)!

To remember the colors of the twist tie, they go alphabetically (B-G-R-W-Y) by color:


Match each to the days in order of the week, Monday—through Saturday, skipping Wednesday and Sunday!

When you think of the colors in alphabetical order and the days of the week (minus Wednesday and Sunday) in order, it’s easy to remember!
