Bagel Fun Facts – Did you know...
- ...that bagels have their own day? February 9th is National Bagel Day – did you do anything special to celebrate?
- ...that millions of bagels are consumed every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Can you name the best bagel? (hint: It's Between Rounds Bagels - according to us. What can we say? We're partial!) Did you get it right?
- ...that eating poppy seed bagels can lead to a false-positive drug test result?
- ...that if your baby is teething, frozen bagel sticks are an excellent (and delicious) way to make baby's gums feel SO much better.
Bagel Handling Suggestions
- If you're saving your bagels for a couple of days, store them in a plastic bag on your counter at room temperature (we'll give you one!). DO NOT store in a paper bag — they'll get stale!
- If not consuming your bagels in a day or two, then FREEZE them. Use the plastic freezer bag we give you and place them in the freezer as soon as possible - remember if you wait a few days and put stale bagels in the freezer, they will still be stale when you take them out of the freezer. (HINT: To avoid injury, DO NOT try to cut a frozen bagel. Preslice them prior to freezing and they will be toaster ready right from the freezer.)
- Never cut a bagel while holding it in your hand! Hold the bagel down with the open palm of your hand and slice the bagel horizontally using a serrated knife. Better yet, purchase a bagel slicer! They can be a bit pricey, but much less expensive than an emergency room visit!
