If you are a frequent loaf buyer like i am, you must be very familiar with gardenia
- the bread brand that has been in the consumer market for quite sometime now and has pioneered the introduction of fresh, healthy, and diet-friendly breads.
but have you ever wondered if their breads in the stack are really fresh? how would you know which one is fresh and which one is not? The twist tie
is the key. i emailed gardenia's customer relations
and personally called their hotline to verify any truth to this, and here is what i found:
did you know that gardenia philippines delivers fresh bread seven (7) days a week, that's monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, and sunday and each day corresponds to a different twist tie color. they are:
monday - tan
tuesday - orange
wednesday - yellow
thursday - blue
friday - green
saturday - red
sunday - white
so the next time you will hop in the grocery, and assuming it is sunday, you would not want to pick the tan-colored twist tie as this bread has been in the stack for almost a week already.
you might ask, hey, how come all the twist ties i see are always, say for example, orange, or blue, etc.? this only means that the turn-around of bread in that particular branch is fast, so breads in there are always delivered fresh!
so for those gardenia bread lovers out there, take note of the right color twist tie to enjoy fresh breads from gardenia. so good, you can even eat it on its own! :)
hey, before i forget, another diet-friendly advise to you guys. the healthiest bread to eat offered by gardenia is the whole wheat bread - with:
170calories @ 1g fat
good source of carbs @ 35g
dietary fiber @ 3g
protein @ 7g (enjoyed with +tuna spread+lettuce+tomato+cucumber)
SRP : ~ P54.00 - P56.00
