Have you, and don’t tell me you haven’t, been to the store to buy bread and squeezed the loafs to find the freshest loaf? I know I have! I usually have the TV going in the background around here, even though I don’t pay much attention to it. But, this morning something caught my attention. On the Rachael Ray Show they were talking about finding the freshest loaf of bread at the grocery store!
Did you guys know you can tell what day each loaf was delivered on by the color of the twist ties on the bread loaf? How cool is that? According to her, these colors are universal – meaning they mean the same everywhere at every store.
Here’s how you can tell what day of the week the loaves were delivered on:
Blue - delivered on Monday
Green - delivered on Tuesday
Red - delivered on Wednesday
White - delivered on Thursday
Yellow - Delivered on Friday
This should help you to find the freshest loaf. But, now standing in the store, how are you suppose to remember which color goes with what day? She had a simple little thing to help us remember. If you look closely, you will see the colors are in alphabetical order. Just match the color with the day (Monday – Friday). But now, I also know why they are always out of bread by Sunday night!
Personally, I would still need to jot the little chart down. That is more thinking than I want to do in the middle of the grocery store So ,the next time you head to the grocery store to buy bread, use the color chart above to help you find the freshest loaf of bread. And, just between you and me, I will probably still have to give it a little squeeze
Have any of you ever heard of this?
