Is Your Gardenia Bread Fresh?

Got this in the mail... Strange, when I buy Gardenia bread on Saturdays or Sundays, the twist ties are Green. Hmmm. Does that really mean the bread is 4 to 5 days old? And if bread deliveries are made daily, how come I don't see the other twist tie colors? Anyway, before believing what you get in your email, check it out first yourself.

Here's the email I got about how to tell if your Gardenia bread is fresh...

Thanks, Beth, for this link:

In the case of Gardenia bread, I've started seeing tags of other colors, not just the Green ones. But it's probably not necessary for a consumer to memorize the meaning of the colors. As Angel pointed out, simply read the expiration date printed on the tag.

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 thru 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 one with the plastic clips have different colors. Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.

Aren't you glad to know this fact?

(So far, I've only seen green twist ties. Have any of you seen the other colors?)
