Toasted and topped with butter, covered in lox, or used as the bread for a chicken salad sandwich — there's no stopping the deliciousness that bagels bring to a meal. But this Tuesday, Feb. 9, it doesn't matter how you like to eat your bagel as long as you eat one to celebrate National Bagel Day. And while you're chowing on that yummy round treat, take a moment to reflect on what makes this day so special with some facts about bagels that may help you win the next trivia night.
When it comes to bagel knowledge, who better than a long time bagel baker to provide some expert facts? Thomas' Bagels provided me with tons of fun information on bagels and why we can't seem to stop wanting more flavors. In fact, to celebrate National Bagel Day, Thomas' is giving away 10,000 packs of bagels via its Facebook page and releasing its new fan-picked flavor, lemon blueberry. (So start thinking of what toppings you'd like to schmear on that one.)
Whether you are a bagel aficionado or just a bread lover who fancies a bagel now and then, help celebrate the bagel's official day with these facts about bagels to make you smarter while you're noshing.
