The Color of Plastic Tab Tells You When the Bread was Baked!


When choosing a loaf of bread, what’s your technique to make sure you get a fresh one? Do you squeeze it? Grab from the front of the shelf? Maybe the back? Sneak a nibble as a taste test?

There’s an easier way! Bread is delivered to grocery stores on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. How can you know when the loaf of bread in your hands was baked? The plastic twist or tab’s color will tell you!

Most loaves color-code the plastic piece that keeps the bread closed. While some brands may be different, most, including Wonder Bread, use this color scheme:

Monday: Blue

Tuesday: Green

Thursday: Red

Friday: White

Saturday: Yellow

Knowing this, you may be able to better choose a fresh loaf! If you forget, the colors go in alphabetical order.
