The Color Of The Twist Tie On Your Loaf Of Bread Actually Means Something!!

We've all brought home a nice, soft, fresh loaf of bread only to discover — that it's a little past its sell-by date.

Turns out your bread loaves are trying to tell you something ... and the message is in the twist ties. The colorful twist ties that keep our bread fresh and protected from store to sandwich actually have a hidden secret. As it turns out, each color means the bread was baked on a particular day of the week... And you are correct: It does skip Wednesday and Sunday, in order to give bakers two days off each week.
