Have you ever thought if there was a reason for the different colors of twist-ties on bread?
There IS a reason!
Most bakeries bake bread five days a week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Because of this, most breads on the shelves of grocery stores are less than 2 days old. But there is also another way to make sure that the bread you are getting is the freshest on the shelf. Look at the twist ties! Most generally, all bakeries use the same color code for the day that bread was baked.
Now you just have to remember the order of the colors! Well, a good way to remember is that the colors are in order, alphabetically!
For example, if you go shopping on Monday afternoon, you may see bread with blue twist ties and bread with yellow twist ties. If you remember the order of the colors are alphabetical, you will know that blue had just been baked that morning!
Like I said, most bakeries adhere to this coding system. Check it out in your local store!
