Just the Facts

A few facts about bagels that you may or may not know:

  • A bagel should never have a soft cakey texture.

  • A bagel is born chewy.

  • A bagel with a thin crusty top is not stale – it was born that way.

  • If you can’t eat the bagel on the day it was born then freeze it.

  • Bring your fresh bagels home in a paper bag, and only put them in a plastic bag immediately before you put them into the freezer, assuming you want to save some for later.

  • A bagel frozen on the day it was born will be born again on thawing day.

  • A classic bagel contains flour, water and yeast.

  • A classic bagel does not contain egg, onions, sesame seed, cinnamon, poppy seed, chocolate chip, raisin, cranberries, garlic, rosemary, jalapeƱo, or blueberry.

  • A bagel does not have to be toasted to be enjoyed.
