Bread Ties

I am trying to find the chart that shows the freshness of bread by the color bread tie. I know the tie color shows what day of week the bread was made. I hope someone can help.

So would blue be Monday? I know a different color depicts a different day of the week, the day the bread was made.

Thanks a million for the answer. A coworker had been talking about this and I was interested since I seem to be buying bred lately that is not as fresh as it should be. We appreciate your help.

Okay, so what about brown? My local grocery store brand of bread comes with a brown twist tie. Does that mean they make it in their own bakery and ship it in or on site? Just curious. I buy it b/c it's always fresh, even after being frozen for a few weeks. ( Their homestyle wheat was on sale for $.49 a loaf two weeks ago and I bought 12 loaves.) The loaf I pulled out yesterday seemed as if it was baked that morning.

Jen you must shop at Wegmans! Our Wegmans have brown ones!

I just squeeze the bread, if it's soft enough, I buy it.
