I wonder why the grocers don’t mention it?
Color-Coded Bread Bag Ties: Who Knew?
Filed Under: Kitchen Fundamentals
To remember which color is which day, put the colors in alphabetical order. Here’s the breakdown:
- Blue: Monday
- Green: Tuesday
- Red: Thursday
- White: Friday
- Yellow: Saturday
There are certainly some exceptions to this practice so we can’t recommend relying on it exclusively to determine freshness. Some bakeries will use their own color-coding systems or only one color altogether, and always remember that the date on the tag is the date the bread needs to be sold by, not the date it was baked on.
Now we just want to know why bread isn’t baked on Wednesdays.
Do you know of any other food packaging color-codes?
