What do these colored tabs really mean?

Have you ever wondered what the color tabs on loaves of bread mean? Some are yellow, red or even blue. I remember asking my Home Economics teacher in Junior High School what those tabs really meant. That one question turned into a homework assignment for me. I didn’t mind because it was about food and research so I was all for it. Now fast forward about 15 plus years (Yeah I know I just dated myself…lol), I wondered if the same information that I found out years ago was still valid. So I began my research again to see what I could find out.

Those colored tabs really do mean something. Each colored tab represents a different day of the week; the day the bread was baked. The date that is stamped on the tab is the date the bread needs to be sold by. Sometimes they won’t always be tabs but the twists with the dates stamped on the bag itself, the colors still remain the same. The colors are listed below. So next time you are in the bread aisle or at your local bakery take a look at the colored tab or twist to see how fresh your bread is.

Monday – Blue

Tuesday – Green

Thursday – Red

Friday – White

Saturday – Yellow

Note: This is a universal adopted procedure, however some companies may change it up a bit. But for the most part all companies still with this standard procedure.

Huffington Post: Bagels and Cream Cheese Article

12 Bagel And Cream Cheese Flavors That Shouldn’t Exist – http://huff.to/1fMxlmw

Above you will find the article from the Huffington Post about bagels and cream cheese. After reading this article and laughing about it, I realized that I have eaten almost all of these item, yeah I know kind of crazy. I can totally relate to the authors voice in regards to the items listed because I didn’t know some of them even existed.

Protein Cream Cheese. Where was I when this was announced? I can’t seem to figure this one out, but I’m sure that the amount of carbohydrates in the bagel have canceled out the protein in the cream cheese.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese. Niece know in the fall I am one of those who will be at my favorite coffee shop buying my pumpkin latte. I’ll eat eat pumpkin bread, pumpkin spice butter and sometimes pumpkin pie. But, I think I will pass on the cream cheese, just not sure the flavor can be captured correctly.

Blueberry Bagel and Chocolate Chip Bagel.  Guilt, guilty, guilty. I have ordered both of these from the bakery more than a few times. I enjoy both of them. There is nothing healthy about eating chocolate for breakfast but I do it with no shame. That blueberry bagel toasted with some butter is heavenly for me.

Honey Walnut Cream Cheese and Strawberry Cream Cheese. Again: Guilty, guilty, guilty. These two are staples in my refrigerator (don’t judge me lol) But I love them. Both of these tastes great on that chocolate chip bagel.

After reading this are my foodie points going down the drain due to my crazy guilty pleasures? Be sure to let me know what you think.
