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
Saturday = Yellow.

So if today was Thursday, you would want 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.

Did you know we put the old bread UNDER the new bread because everybody thinks the bread under the top basket is more fresh? And they take it without looking. :D:D

at our store it happens to be different :) . the bread is baked in the morning mostly but also later on. We bake the bread in the supermarket itself -> fresh.
each bread that isnt sold on a specific day is thrown away.
our veggies however... they are coded like A6 or B7 A means monday and 6 means week 6.

In Canada bread is fastened with a plastic tab with an expiry date .
Also take the bread at the back or bottom of the row , the newer stuff is always there as they restock the older loaves are moved to the front .

I don't pay much attention to bread twist tie colors, as i am allergic to wheat.
