The twist tie or the tab that is used to close the bread bag is either blue, green, red, white or yellow. Bread is delivered to the store 5 days a week. the tags help know what day the bread was delivered to the store using the colors to coordinate with a day delivered.
- Monday – Blue
- Tuesday – Green
- Wednesday – Red
- Thursday – White
- Friday – Yellow
So if you are getting bread on Wednesday, you would want to find a green tag and stay away from the white tag, for the freshest bread. Make sense?
This will allow you to buy the freshest bread next time you shop.
Consider writing this down and storing it in your coupon binder. It is something I can’t remember on my own, so I need it on an index card.
Happy Shopping!Note: In checking around the internet, I had read some additional information. Some sites state no bread delivery is done on Wednesday, but on Saturday instead, but the concept still applies.
