Whose Everything Bagels are Better? Krogers or Thomases?

They're not everyone's cup of tea, but they are probably the rage at the moment. What? Everything Bagels . An everything bagel is topped with all kinds of seeds and features a lovely taste that favors onion.

I prefer the dense Philadelphia cream cheese, rather than the aerated fluffy stuff. So here's what I do...

Split the bagel, toast it until the flat surface is a nice rich brown. Pot it out, juggling the bagel halves to the plate. Instantly press approximately 3/16" slabs of the cream cheese around the flat side of the bagel. I don't spread it.

Then I pick it up and bite. I have tried both the Kroger and the Thomas everything bagels, and here is my review...

Thomas has the better chew. It reminds me of fine pizza crust that has just been removed from the oven. It's like when snow outside melts just slightly then refreezes, producing a thin crust that gives fairly quickly when you walk on it. Kroger gives a decent bite, but Thomas has it beat.

However , Kroger has much superior flavor. It's not just seedy. It tastes, Oh, so good!

I suggest these two providers take stock of this review and go back to the ovens!

I have enjoyed eating sliced toasted bagels with cream cheese and prefer the onion bagels the most. The added onion flavor makes about the best flavor I have had in a toasted bagel and the cream cheese is best just like you said, sliced.

I totally understand. So next time, try the everything bagels. They have everything you give a thumbs up to, P-L-U-S seed textures. It doesn't get any better in bread...

I don't think I have tasted a bagel. I like wholemeal bread but I do like pizza but the deep chewy pizza. If I ever find these bagels over here, I will try them. I love Philadelphia cream cheese, I would eat that by itself, off the spoon!

Yes, it's good stuff. Some use it in various beef broths to spoon over cooking beef, then eat as a sauce.

Must try that sometime.
