Know Your Bread

by duncanr

bread tiesever wondered why the plastic ties holding your bread wrapper closed are different colours ?

it’s to make it easy for stores to rotate their stock

each colour relates to the day of the week the bread was baked

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow

so next time you’re buying bread and are seeking to pick out the freshest on display, don’t waste time trying to read the ‘best before date’ printed on the fastening ‘tie’ – use your loaf and select on the basis of colour instead!
