This is not entirely new: The information has been circulating on the internet for years, but a recent post from Tasting Table has made it go viral again.And bear in mind that not all bread companies adhere to this rule; some use bread tags that are all one color regardless of date of baking.She also suggests that while this is amusing tidbit of information to have, it's not hugely useful since stores restock regularly: "Even without knowing the code, your friends and family are never going to get a stale loaf." And knowing that is truly a slice of heaven! I have (on more than one occasion) either tossed an entire loaf of stale bread or set it aside to use just for toast.
Each day our distributors pick up all the products which have certain colored twist ties.If that happens, though, you're not toast — just remember that the date on the tag is the sell-by date, not the date it was actually baked.So what does this mean for you, the savvy sandwich shopper?Ever wonder what the colors of the tie tags on loaves of bread represent?They’re a code designating the day of the week on which a loaf was baked: Blue: Monday Green: Tuesday Red: Thursday White: Friday Yellow: Saturday An easy way to remember it, though, is to simply recall the alphabet. When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you ‘squeeze’ for freshness or softness? They are: Monday = Blue, Tuesday = Green, Thursday = Red Friday = White Saturday = Yellow.
