On what day of the week was a loaf of bread baked if a red twist tie closes its bag?
According to “Wise Bread,” the color of the twist tie on a loaf of bread is for more than just pretty packaging to entice consumers to make a purchase.
The color of the twist tie indicates the day on which the bakery produced that batch of bread. The most commonly-used code, set up for a 5-day-a-week delivery, goes as follows: Monday’s color is blue, Tuesday’s is green, red is for Thursday, Friday is white and Saturday’s color is yellow. Remembering this simple code may help in choosing a fresher loaf when shopping for bread. Source: Consumerist.com
