Did You Know? (Bread)

Everyday when I learn something new I want to pass it along to others. I grew up testing a loaf of bread by pressing down on top of it and if it felt soft and was slow at springing back up, then this was a fresh loaf, but if I press on the top of it and the bread was firm and did not move, then this was considered as stale.  I found out that all along, my mom, grandma, and all of us have been wasting our time, because bread has a code to let you know when it was baked, and the code is the colorful twist ties on the bread. Bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week, which are  Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. And each day has a different color twist tie. They are...........................

Monday - Blue

Tuesday - Green

Thursday - Red

Friday - White

Saturday - Yellow

I went to the grocery store and the bread wrappers do have different colored twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. 

So today being Tuesday, I want a green twist tie (fresh delivered this morning) - not red which is Thursday (almost a week old)

The colors go alphabetically Blue - Green - Red - White -Yellow,  which match towards the day of the week, Monday thru Saturday. Very easy to remember. Post a note in your wallet so you will not forget.
