Is a bagel better for you than bread?

Weight for weight, the nutritional composition is about the same.

I can't understand how bagels have managed to create a market in a country which can produce perfectly decent bread.

oh I love bagels there sooooo much nicer, I have about 2 a day, already had one for breakfast...they have to be nice onces though. The american bagels you get in the packs are awful, Mark's are the nicest by far! Yummy!

I like them, but always feel like I'm carrying a lead weight in my stomach for the next hour.
Overdosed on them in America where they were often the 'free breakfast' in hostels.

Aren't they much higher in calories than bread?

Only because one bagel weighs as much as a large loaf, Sassie!

I'd much rather have a chunk of crusty wholemeal. In fact, I'd rather have a slice of that white plastic bread that my kids insist on having than eat a nasty unchewable gum-clinging bagel.

bagels any day off the week - just munching my way though one - covered in peanut butter - yum yum!!!!
23/01/2004 at 10:54
yeah yummy peanut butter! I had that for breakfast.

bagel yummm

white plastic bread - yummm ish (but not as yumm as bagels)

crusty wholemeal bread - bleeergh

bagel with scrambled eggs for breakfast - wholemeal bread sandwich for lunch. it may be bleeergh but i just can't seem to ignore the fact that its supposed to be better for me.

Cant see the point of bagels. Chewy, heavy and whats that hole about??

Nah give me Warburton's Crusty any time.

Bl**dy Hell!!!

Just noticed, me and Vrap agree on something.

I'll just go for a lie down now if its alright with you.

I'm feeling quite faint

YOU'RE feeling faint, Chimp?


Actually - must confess - I'd rather have a bagel than a burger bun.

you have to get the bagel from the right place though, when there all soft and nice like from Mark's or Sainsburys blueberry are lovely. If you get them stale, yuk! Unless toasted. Over toasted and you ruin them as well...

Yikes! Don't let me get started on blueberries!

definitely blonde runner!

my favourites are tescos

I hate bagels, although having had the real thing in the US, I have to say that hardly any of the bagels in British shops resemble it.

Norwegian bread is lovely - never sliced, always wholemeal with lots of seeds. Yum!

I think Sainsbury's fresh bagels are the best.
The plain ones, or sesame maybe - never, never onion though.

Bagels with honey on are great - or as a weekend treat, maybe bacon and cream cheese. MMMmmmmmmmmm.
23/01/2004 at 12:08
Yup, stay away from the onion.
Atkin's dieters in the US go to Bagel shops and ask for a bagel with the 'flesh'scooped out and filled with full-fat cream cheese. Stupid.
