Disclosure: 1800nycbagels.com sent me a dozen bagels for review purposes and is sponsoring the giveaway in this post. While this is a sponsored post, all opinions remain my own.
Just like last time, when I opened the shipping box, I found that hunter green gift box inside. What a lovely presentation! This makes me think of all those people in your life who you never know quite what to give them for birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions…wouldn’t it be so much fun to send them a dozen New York style bagels, right from New York? And you don’t even have to gift wrap! Now that’s a win!
I was sent a selection of flavors that included: everything, sesame, poppy, blueberry, plain, and multi-grain. I had to fight off the kids to get these photos–everyone was so excited by this package’s arrival! You may think a dozen bagels is a lot to buy at one time, and maybe it is in normal households. In ours, they were devoured in record time. But if you need to make them last a little longer, 1800nycbagels.com recommends slicing them in half, then freezing. Do not refrigerate. I repeat, do not refrigerate. It’ll kill their texture.
The texture is what I love so much about these bagels. Soft and giving, there’s no reason to toast these. (Don’t real New Yorkers look down on that anyway?) Most of them, I just sliced and slathered with cream cheese.
A few, I decided to transform into sandwiches. The bagels were just so easy to eat anyway and were perfect for capturing those fresh tomato juices dribbling down and piles of ham and cheese. YUM. I wanted to make a bagel BLT, too, but the kids finished them up before I could get to it. Addictive is an understatement, young or old.
I can go on and on and on about how much I love these bagels, but you really have to try them for yourself to understand why I’m so excited about them. Check out 1800nycbagels.com and select a dozen of your own. The price remains $18 for a dozen ($1.50 each), plus priority mail shipping to ensure they get to you super fresh. AND 1800nycbagels.com is graciously offering up a dozen bagels ($18 retail value) in a giveaway for one of my readers!
