42. 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?
Did
you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a
week?
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a
different color twist tie. They are: Monday = Blue, Tuesday =
Green,
Thursday = Red, Friday = White and Saturday = Yellow. So if today
was
Thursday, you would want a red twist tie; not white which is
Fridays
(almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue-
Green -
Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to
remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery
store
and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the
ones
with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something
new
everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right
color on
the day you are shopping.
