When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever
wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or
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 , 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 one 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.~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
