Simple tip: how to pick fresh bread


Moldy Bread

There is no worse feeling: you rummage through your kitchen in the quest to make a delicious sandwich.  And then you realize that your bread has those tiny green marks throughout.  Looks like mold has gotten the best of your bread as nature took its course.

When confessing this to a relative, they told me to simply look at the color of the tie of the bread I am buying.  That helps signify the freshness.  And yes I tell my family about my moldy bread.

My relative told me that the earlier the color of the tie is alphabetically, the earlier in the week they make it (so on Monday you want the blue).

According to Truth or Fiction:

According to the grocery store manager we checked with, this is true, but each bread company uses its own color code, so there isn’t just one that will apply to everything on the shelf.

So next time you stock up the dorm room or apartment be sure to get the freshest bread.  Trust me, I learned the hard way…

    To keep your bread fresher for longer, store it in the fridge. Or if you know you’re not going to eat it all right away you can even freeze it. I know this might be a bit of a hassle if you’re the type who rummages around for a midnight sandwich, but if you just want toast, what’s the difference in starting with a frozen slice?

    My problem? No toaster in the apartment yet.
