Product Test: Bagel-fuls

Something new I saw at the grocery last week. I bought a couple boxes and decided to try them out.
I used the microwave heating method first. Pretty good for a frozen bagel. Not as good as a fresh bagel,of course. But I'd put the bread texture right there alongside any frozen or off-the-shelf bagel. The cream cheese was a little lacking. Not as creamy as Philadelphia brand, but good enough for frozen 'quick eats'.

Next, I tried one out of my toaster. (Make sure you have a wide-slotted model.) This made the bread crispy, but left the cream cheese cold. It's at this point I realized just how lacking the cream cheese was: kinda crumbly. Nothing 'cream' about it, but it still tasted good enough.

Final judgement:Overall, not bad.
Not quite the same as a real toasted bagel with cream cheese. But if you're in a hurry, or just too damn lazy to feed yourself proper, these'll work.

A box of four costs about $2.50. Kinda steep for what you get when compared to the price of a bakery bagel.

A couple of boxes?
You don't know if it's good and you buy a couple of boxes?
What kind of Italian ARE you?

(I guess I shouldn't talk. I don't eat anything with cheese in it...)

Gino and Tully,

Many food sins can be forgiven with enough marinara sauce.
