You Can Tell How Fresh the Bread is By the Color of the Twist or Plastic Tab Used to Hold it Closed-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
This email says that if you want to know how fresh the bread is in your grocery store, look at the tie that is holding the wrapper closed. Bread is delivered five days a week, Monday Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and the bread maker puts a different colored tie on to designate which day of the week the bread was baked:
Monday – Blue
Tuesday – Green
Thursday – Red
Friday – White
Saturday – Yellow
According to the grocery store manager we checked with, this is true, but each bread company uses its own color code, so there isn’t just one that will apply to everything on the shelf.
