Twist Ties and Apple Stickers

Here's a couple things to keep in the back of your mind when you're getting some basics.... or just in general -  This way you can have the freshest "Apple Sandwich Possible!

Bread is delivered to the store fresh every day - the twist tie colors tell you the day it was baked.

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday =Red
Friday = White
Saturday =Yellow.

Just remember that the colors are alphabetical - I carried around a post-it for a while before I figured that one out ;)  (No Wed.)
Those stickers on fruits and veggies tell you quite a bit!
- 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown
- 5 numbers starting with number "8" means they are genetically modified
- 5 numbers starting with "9" means they were organically grown.
- 10 numbers starting with an area code means someone wrote their phone number on the produce...disregard :)

  1. Thank you for sharing! I never knew that is what the numbers or ties meant. I will be paying closer attention to my fruit and bread now more than ever. I will be searching the web for other little tidbits about the foods we buy.
