Best Bagel Flavors
The guys gave their opinions, and it was business as usual. No wild picks. Just your classics made the round-up. Fans of the podcast though had some really passionate answers to this question. We’ll use their words to break down the most beloved and best bagel flavors.
When bagel has everything, it’s must certainly be the best! According to Eamon Dougherty, former guest and podcaster, says:
Everything Bagels are the best because they have everything!!!!!! Runner up are Bagel Bites, because when Pizza is on it you can have it any time?
Ross from Conshohocken agrees:
Everything bagels are my jam, though I’ll sometimes break it down with a poppyseed bagel! What’s that, you say? Sun-dried tomato basil bagels from Giant? Yeah, gimme gimme. Also, whitefish spread please. I’m Jewish, so please count my response as double on this matter.
It’s either all or nothing. And sometimes simple is better. According to Alex from Magnolia, the best way to go is no frills:
Time for old man status. Plain or a nice egg bagel with extra cream cheese is all I ever want. Nice and toasty…mmmm…
This is a thing apparently, and not just an upset bagel. Mallory from Southhampton, NJ explains:
Salt bagels are underrated. The salt and cream cheese balance each other out nicely. Plus who doesn’t love things covered in salt, great for high blood pressure.
You Knead Bagels
Knead Bagels is a fantastic bagel shop near Washington Square in Philadelphia. Definitely check this place out if you haven’t been. When you go, be sure to order the togarashi. It’s life-changing.
Know How to Pronounce Bagel
When you order your favorite bagel flavor, be sure to order with the correct pronunciation. Nicole from Port Richmond explains:
I like a cinnamon and raisin or a blueberry beg-ul (because I’m from Philly, that’s why) … also like about half my body weight in cream cheese on there. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE TOP OF THE BEG-UL. If I do, there is not enough cream cheese.
