Never Knew This

I'm not much of a bread eater, but I came across this tidbit and just had to share. I've purchased bread numerous times for A. and when I used to do the grocery shopping when I was a teenager, but I never noticed this-I can't wait to get to the store to check this out.

When you go to 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: 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 different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping

I found the above totally by accident on Mary Jane's Farm website.

Oh yeah, guh. My mama taught me that lesson early on. As a child I learned the finer points of groping and molesting loaves of bread at the store.

My later roommates thought I was a freak when witnessing this behavior. Alas, they did not complain, though, when they always had the tastiest bread brought to the table!
