Best H&H Bagel flavor

steakrules85 Mar 13, 2007 06:09 PM

I wanna try one. I am a lover of everything bagels if they are done right. Can't go wrong with just a plain bagel but I would like to be a little bit more adventurous. What is the best bagel variety in your opinion from H and h?

      Everything has good turnover so they're almost always fresh. I think the pumpernickel sit around longer.

      The Whole Wheat are pretty good. I'm not a fan of H&H Cinnamon raisin.

        Use the plain variety as your baseline, then move on to sesame, poppy, pumpernickel... why not try them all and come to an (un)scientific conclusion!

          Just stick your hand up to the plastic and buy whichever kind is warm. It's your best indication of a fresh one.

            I love the whole wheat and the everything and the oat bran bagels from H&H-best when hot out of the oven-

              I usually do what Selizara suggested, but I also love the onion!

                There is no such thing as a good bagel from H&H. They are bad "bread" bagels that only became famous because they are next to Zabars.

                  The Everything bagel, when nice and warm, is the best.

                      I'm partial to poppy, myself.
