OK, I'm gonna try and to these daily just for the fun of it. They will be random facts and tips. K? K. So here's today's:


Have you ever noticed there are different colors of ties on the loaves of bread? Did you know there was a reason? Well, you're about too :)

As it turns out, they indicate when the loaf was baked! The standard colors are:

  • Blue: Monday
  • Green: Tuesday
  • Red: Thursday
  • White: Friday
  • Yellow: Saturday

 So if you go to the store on a Thursday, you'd want to avoid a loaf of bread with a white tie/tab and possibly yellow. You would want to look for a Red or a Green if possible. And if you don't think you can remember the order they go in, notice that the colors go in alphabetical order.

And now you know how to find the freshest loaf of bread. You're welcome :P
