And as always the good people of TikTok have delivered. Specifically, user @tony.zakharia2.
In a now viral TikTok video, Tony has shared the surprisingly simple way to tell which loaf of bread on the shelf is the freshest. And it's all has to do with the colour of the tag. Who knew?!
"Turn the breads over we can see two clips; one red one meaning it was made on the Thursday and one white one meaning it was made on a Friday," he explains in the video.
"So as you can see the red one expires on the 24th and the white one on the 25th – and that is why I take the freshest bread all the time."
