Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week?
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. And each day has a
different color twist tie. They are :
The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Red - White -Yellow for Monday - Tuesday - Thursday - Friday - Saturday.
- Monday - Blue
- Tuesday - Green
- Thursday - Red
- Friday - White
- Saturday - Yellow
Some of the clips now come with an actual date on them to further assist you in determining bread freshness. Check with your local grocer or bread supplier to make sure this is the system in use in your area and enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.
Contact the manufacturer of your favorite brand and ask what (if any) color-coded tag system they adhere to and what their delivery schedule to your favorite store is, then let your selection be guided by that.
