    FIFO.

    First in, first out. That's the rule, if you ave foresight, you'll always grab the grub from the back.

    Someone should do a study.
    I always throw it in the fridge, since discovering that most bakery bread goes stale faster than I can eat it. It's going to get toasted anyway.

    I'm not a food snob. It's a distraction and I wish I didn't have to eat at all.

    I'm sorry your taste buds have failed you. Eating great food is one of humanity's top pleasures, next to sex and maybe taking a really great poop.

    So yeah, never put the bread in the fridge. It accelerates the staling process. Although if you're using the bread exclusively for toast (i.e., Faust), then it really doesn't matter.

    They haven't failed me. I still like food, just not to the extent I'm going to take pictures of meals or share recipes or even remember what I ate an hour later.

    The best poops are the ones that don't show up on toilet paper FYI. Excretion is such an inefficient process

    By the way, the best bread is Dave's Killer Bread. I bought it as a joke one day (the label is hysterical) but it's really good.

    What are you talking about? Left out the fancy stuff will turn into a dry, inedible rock in like 3 days. The fridge keeps in some level of moisture.

    I'm not a damn scientist, I can't speak to your individual loaves you're buying. If that works for you, great. Don't encourage others astray because anecdotally I have never eaten untoasted fridge bread that wasn't shitty.

    I am reading my posts and am realizing they make me sound way more invested in this topic than I am.
