Bred tie color will tell you a lot !!!!Taste the rainbow

Bakers have some days off so remember, so if you’re a "freshoholic", you might want to avoid buying bread on those days. For the freshest bread, check out the (not-so-secret) color codes: Turns out, the color of the twist tie or plastic tag on your bread can tell you how fresh your loaf is. Usually, commercial bread is baked and delivered on a strict schedule, leaving the oven and arriving on your supermarket shelf five days a week. The color of the fastening on your bread bag indicates the day of the week the bread was baked.

Monday – blue

Tuesday – green

Thursday – red

Friday – white

Saturday – yellow

There’s an easy way to remember this at the grocery store: The colors are in alphabetical order by day of the week.
